Aida Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces New Antibiotic Drug Under Development
Date:4/9/2008

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 9, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aida Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AIDA) today announced that its recently-acquired research institute in the Jiangsu Province, the Jiangsu Institute of Microbiology Co., Ltd or "JSIM", is developing a new wide-spectrum antibiotic, Wetimicin, in the People's Republic of China. Wetimicin is from the newest generation of amino-glycoside family of antibiotics and is being tested for the treatment of various inflammations, such as respiratory infection, urinogenital infection, soft skin tissue infection as well as infections from trauma and operations, etc. JSIM's scientists believe that it might be safer and more reliable for children and elderly patients than current drug offerings in the marketplace.

Management believes that Wetimicin will have a larger market volume than that of Etimicin Sulphate, the company's current pillar product, which is in the same family of antibiotics as Wetimicin, due to its potentially stronger applicability to a wider range of ailments. Management's experience, resources and marketing channels will play a key role in driving Wetimicin to market approval and distribution.

The research for this new drug started in 2000 and it is currently undergoing Phase 1 clinical trials in conjunction with the Chinese government's State Food and Drug Administration ("SFDA"). The company believes that Phase 2 testing will commence some time in 2008. The company will have the right of first refusal of the manufacturing and marketing of the drug once it is approved by the SFDA as a Category A innovative new drug.
