Vista Partners Initiates Coverage on MediciNova Inc. (Nasdaq: MNOV)
Date:7/16/2008

LOS ANGELES, July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vista Partners announced today that it has initiated coverage on MediciNova Inc. (Nasdaq: MNOV). "MediciNova has a promising drug development pipeline for treating a variety of diseases and conditions. The Company is primarily focused on two drug development programs; the first is MN-221 for the treatment of Status Asthmaticus. There are an estimated 2,000,000 visits to the emergency room a year for asthma related difficulties. The market for treatment of asthma related difficulties is in the billions and we believe MN-221, if approved, will garner a sizable percentage of the market potentially resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in sales for MediciNova. The second drug in development is MN-166 for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is believed to affect approximately 350,000 to 400,000 people in the United States and over 2.5 million globally. Worldwide sales of drugs used in the treatment of MS were approximately $7.2 billion in 2006," said Ross Silver, Director of Research for Vista Partners.
