Victhom announces the completion of the second phase of the apnea therapy development
Date:1/12/2009

QUEBEC, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Victhom Human Bionics Inc., "Victhom" (TSX: VHB), announced today the filing of an additional patent for the detection and treatment of sleep apnea and has also disclosed the preliminary results from its preclinical studies.

The Company has recently filed a new patent application relating to a method and device for the detection, identification and treatment of sleep apnea/hypopnea using its neuromodulation platform. Late in 2007, the Company filed a patent application on detection of obstructive apnea from sensory signals in vagal nerve. The continued research has revealed that in fact, sensory signals in various nerves innervating the larynx and the breathing airway can provide a good source for the detection of respiration rate and onset and the duration of any form of apneic event. "The new findings are filed in a comprehensive patent application that captures our unique approach to detection and treatment of respiratory disorders", said Mr. Kameli, Chief Operating Officer of the Neurobionix division.

Over the course of 2008, the Company has validated its findings in various preclinical research studies. Initial preclinical results show that the technology can successfully detect onset, duration and termination of any form of respiratory distress such as hypopnea, obstructive apnea, and central apnea. "The detection of apnea has always been a challenge", stated Mr. Kameli. "Many companies have tried various technologies with various degrees of success. The issue seems to be that artificial sensors that need to be placed in the airway of patients are neither accurate nor patient-friendly. Patient compliance and ease of use seems to be an issue", continued Mr. Kameli. He further stated, "Victhom has been able, in preclinical studies, to decode what the lungs and the airway passages are reporting to the brain to identify when the subject is in distress and is in need of help. No other form of sensing c
