Pulmo BioTech Inc. Announces Cash Details of its Previously Announced Letter of Intent Intended to Bring its Pulmonary Vascular Diagnostic Product Candidate PulmoBind(TM) to the European Market

NEW YORK, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pulmo BioTech Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PLMO; Frankfort Borse: PBO) has announced that it will ultimately receive at least $3.3 million pursuant to the license agreement contemplated by the previously announced non-binding letter of intent with Biotechnology Consulting Poland Sp. z.o.o. with respect to its Pulmonary Vascular Diagnostic Product Candidate PulmoBind(TM) development work, clinical trials and ultimately, commercialization in the European market.

"We are pleased that the relationship with Biotechnology Consulting Poland to be finalized in a license agreement expected before the end of 2009 will allow Pulmo BioTech to bring PulmoBind(TM) to the whole of the European Union and European Economic Area. Under the contemplated license agreement, Pulmo BioTech will be providing all of the technical resources to enable this to happen, and in return Biotechnology Consulting Poland will be providing a substantial cash element to Pulmo BioTech. Biotechnology Consulting Poland will license the technology to enable them to carry out all of the trials necessary to gain European Approval for PulmoBind(TM) with the intention that they will then commercialize PulmoBind across Europe. By following this parallel approach with Pulmo BioTech concentrating on the North American market and Biotechnology Consulting Poland having responsibility for Europe, we expect to minimize the time required to complete trials and, provided that regulatory approval is ultimately obtained, to gain maximum sales for PulmoBind(TM) across both these major markets to the benefit of our shareholders and the medical community." - Garry McCann, CEO Pulmo BioTech Inc.

About PulmoScience Inc.

PulmoScience Inc. was established in 2006, and is currently developing a non-invasive Molecular Imaging technique for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism, Pulmonary Hypertension and Lung Inflammatory diseases under the trade name PulmoBind(TM).

PulmoScience was conceived within the Montreal Heart Institute "MHI" (a world renowned hospital and educational facility). Jointly owned by MHI subsidiary Innovacor as the technical and operational partner, Dr. Jocelyn Dupuis (the scientific director and originator of the PulmoBind(TM) Molecular Imaging technology), and by Pulmo BioTech Inc. as the funding partner, PulmoScience Inc. aims to develop this unique and exciting technology, to fund necessary trials, and to bring the products to market.

PulmoScience believes that the market for its product candidates is worth in excess of $500 million per annum and that, provided Regulatory Approval is achieved, the safety and efficacy of its products could allow it to dominate that market.

About PulmoBind(TM)

PulmoBind(TM) uses an intravenously delivered radionuclide tagged molecule which specifically bonds to the inner walls of the circulatory system in the lungs, and by the use of an external Gamma Camera allows an image of the integrity of the blood vessels throughout the lungs to be seen by a diagnostic clinician. PulmoScience is currently undertaking Regulatory Approval for Phase I Human Trials, and while subsequent results from additional tests might not corroborate the current results, PulmoScience believes that PulmoBind(TM) has the potential to dominate the market for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism. In particular, this belief is driven by PulmoScience's expectations of the improved safety and efficacy that PulmoBind(TM) will offer when compared to the current incumbent nuclear medicine based technology for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism. In addition, early indications are that PulmoBind(TM) could be highly effective in the early stage diagnosis of Pulmonary Hypertension, a condition for which there is no current front line diagnostic test. The addressable market for the product candidates being developed by PulmoScience is believed by the company to be worth in excess of $500 million per annum.
