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. The presentation titled "A novel drug that raises apolipoprotein A-I and HDL in vitro and in vivo" will be presented by Dr. Norman Wong, Resverlogix Co-Founder and Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board on October 12th at the Petros M. Nomikos Conference Center in Santorini, Greece.

"This meeting of the IAS attracts internationally elite scientists in cardiovascular medicine. This venue is ideal for announcing the favorable and novel features of RVX-208, scheduled for clinical trials later this year," stated Dr. Jan Johansson, MD, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Clinical Affairs of Resverlogix. 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. There is an ever-increasing body of evidence from predictive animal models that indicates RVX-208's potential for preventing and regressing atherosclerosis. We are very happy to participate in this important conference."

Mr. Donald McCaffrey, President and CEO of Resverlogix said, "These highly regarded researchers who will be participating at the event clearly understand that there is a large unmet medical need in cardiovascular disease (CVD).
