MONTREAL, March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Akela Pharma Inc. (TSX: "AKL"), a drug development company focused on developing therapies for the inhalation and pain markets, today announced that it has started its first EDACS(TM) product Phase I clinical trial. EDACS(TM) is Akela's patent pending platform technology to prevent abuse of controlled substances.

This Phase I trial for the first EDACS(TM) based product is an open-label, randomized, single-dose, cross-over study investigating the pharmacokinetics and safety of 3 different extended release formulations of a well-known opioid product compared to the same opioid drug immediate release formulation. The study will be carried out in 12 healthy subjects, and the results are expected to be available in Q3/2008.

"The abuse of prescription drugs is approaching epidemic proportions in numerous countries. The costs to society associated with this abuse are tremendous. Akela has developed a platform technology to prevent the abuse of such substances by preventing the tampering of extended release dosage forms as well as unintentional dose dumping in alcohol. " said Dr. Halvor Jaeger, Chief Executive Officer of Akela Pharma Inc. "We believe that our platform technology is perfectly suited to meet the increasing market demand as well as regulatory pressure for abuse deterrent formulations."

About EDACS(TM):

EDACS(TM) is a patent pending platform technology which utilizes extrusion technology to prepare an insoluble matrix containing dispersed drug which can be shaped into tablets. The matrix is water insoluble, slightly soluble in ethanol, not friable, does not break on compression or allow for crushing and inhalation and does not allow for dissolution and injection.
