Resverlogix's Phase 2 ASSURE Trial Amended


Increased number of patients and the focus is on patients with greatest medical need

TSX Exchange Symbol: RVX

CALGARY, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Resverlogix Corp. ("Resverlogix" or the "Company") (TSX:RVX) announces that the Company's Phase 2 clinical trial, called ASSURE (ApoA-1 Synthesis Stimulation in Acute Coronary Syndrome patients), has made important modifications to the design of the trial which have the potential to demonstrate a more powerful endpoint for the planning of future clinical trials for RVX-208.

Key changes to this clinical trial include: - Raising the number of patients to be recruited from 120 to over 230. - All patients will now undergo an intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) assessment versus the previously planned 60 patients. - Trial sites increase from 20 to approximately 45. - Clinical trials will be conducted in multiple countries to accelerate recruitment. - The study will include patients with low HDL. - Primary endpoint is now plaque regression.

Donald J. McCaffrey, President & CEO of Resverlogix noted, "The most important take away message is that by moving the end point to atherosclerosis regression this will provide a more robust proof of concept. Achieving plaque regression could potentially reduce the development time for RVX-208 by two years."

The planned trial is currently a three month study and dosing is expected to start in 2010. Any changes to the trial will be updated on

About RVX-208

RVX-208, a novel small molecule therapeutic that facilitates endogenous ApoA-1 production, is positioned to be one of the most promising emerging drugs in the treatment of atherosclerosis. To the Company's knowledge RVX-208 is the only novel small molecule that is specifically designed to increase ApoA-I production and thereby raise HDL levels thus enhancing HDL functionality to augment reverse cholesterol transport (RCT). RCT is a pathway by which accumulated cholesterol is transported from the arterial wall to the liver for excretion, thus preventing atherosclerosis.
