BELLEVILLE, ON, April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Bioniche Life Sciences Inc. (TSX: BNC), a research-based, technology-driven Canadian biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it has appointed Dr. Gary Weber as President, Bioniche Food Safety (U.S.).

Dr. Weber brings a wealth of experience to this position, having worked for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as National Program Leader for Animal Science; the National Cattlemen's Beef Association as Director of Animal Health, Inspection and Science Policy and Executive Director of Regulatory Affairs; and most recently, as a self-employed consultant assisting select clientele to deal effectively with the forces of change affecting the food and agriculture sector in the U.S. Dr. Weber holds B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Animal Science from Purdue University and a Ph.D. from Michigan State University.

"We are pleased to welcome Dr. Weber to the Bioniche team," said Rick Culbert, President of Bioniche Food Safety (global). "Dr. Weber joins us at an important time in our Food Safety development program, with our lead product entering Canadian and U.S. markets. This product is the world's first vaccine to be used as an on-farm intervention to reduce the amount of E. coli O157:H7 shed by cattle."

In February of this year, Bioniche received notice from the USDA that the latest data for its E. coli O157:H7 cattle vaccine "meets the 'expectation of efficacy' standard" and is eligible for a conditional license in the U.S. The Company previously received authorization from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to provide the vaccine to Canadian veterinarians under the Permit to Release Veterinary Biologics regulations.

"Dr. Weber is an important asset to our Company as we work to meet the expectations for a conditional license for our E. coli O157:H7
