Date:12/10/2009

ue antibodies for a broad range a cancer types," added Mr. Thompson. "Dr. O'Connor has assembled a team of outstanding scientists with a depth of expertise that is complementary to our own insights and experience with antibody development. We look forward to working with the NRC to advance this new portfolio of therapeutic candidates and to being able to disclose further details on our antibody candidates from this program in the near future as additional optimized antibodies are delivered under this program. I would like to acknowledge the important contribution to YM from its Associate Director for Science, Ilia Tikhomirov, for making the initial observations of the principle that led to the creation of the IntelliMab(TM) platform."

The IntelliMab(TM) platform provides YM with an opportunity for an expanded and valuable intellectual property position in the lucrative monoclonal antibody market. All intellectual property resulting from this collaboration will be owned jointly and commercial rights for drug candidates will be retained by YM. The costs associated with the drug discovery collaboration with NRC-BRI are not anticipated to be material to YM.
