CALGARY, Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Resverlogix Corp. ("Resverlogix") (TSX:RVX) is pleased to announce that tomorrow it is making an oral presentation highlighting key scientific data of its lead clinical molecule, RVX-208, at the International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS) Workshop on HDL.

Nomikos Conference Center in Santorini, Greece.

"This meeting of the IAS attracts internationally elite scientists in cardiovascular medicine.

Dr. Johansson added, "RVX-208 is a small molecule for oral administration that has shown to have unprecedented effects in raising ApoA-I and functional HDL.

We are very happy to participate in this important conference."
