TSX Exchange Symbol: RVX

CALGARY, July 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Resverlogix Corp. ("Resverlogix" or the "Company") (TSX:RVX) is pleased to announce that Resverlogix's lead drug is featured prominently in an article titled "Emerging Antidyslipidemic Drugs", which appears in the current edition of Expert Opinion of Emerging Drugs, a well respected scientific journal for the pharmaceutical industry. The article written by Drs.' Pollex, Joy and Hegele provides an overview of current and upcoming dyslipidemic drugs.

"To be the only ApoA-l/HDL drug highlighted in an esteemed journal such as Expert Opinion of Emerging Drugs speaks volumes as to the excitement felt in the scientific community for our lead drug RVX-208," stated Donald McCaffrey, President and CEO of Resverlogix. "The data provided to the authors was our preclinical data. The Phase 1a data which we recently announced illustrated very similar trending as the African Green Monkey data of increased ApoA-I production and HDL functionality, thus our enthusiasm continues to build as we head into our Phase 1b/2a trial later this year."

RVX-208 is a first-in-class small molecule that facilitates endogenous ApoA-I production. It is positioned as one of the most promising emerging drugs in the treatment of atherosclerosis, the largest medical market in the world with a critical unmet need. To the Company's knowledge RVX-208 is the only novel small molecule that is specifically designed to increase ApoA-I production. Consequently this raises functional HDL levels which in turn enhance reverse cholesterol transport, atherosclerosis regression and ultimately reduction of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE).
