Date:11/16/2007

KIRKLAND, Wash., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CellCyte Genetics Corporation (the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: CCYG) has appointed Tony Colasin as its Director of Business Development and will head CellCyte's aggressive acquisition and technology licensing efforts.

Tony Colasin was former Sr. Director of Business Development for ICOS Corporation. From January 2001 to January 2007, he directed that company's business development during several major product introductions. Mr. Colasin managed M&A investment banking engagements, establishing a screening/evaluation process. He led the development and implementation of ICOS' product licensing review process and standardized valuation techniques (NPV and option valuation), which increased the number of opportunities assessed annually and improved overall capacity for revenue.

Notably, Tony Colasin was responsible for building a urology franchise to leverage the Cialis(R) brand, a treatment for erectile dysfunction successfully launched against Viagra(R). Mr. Colasin led a team that created an integrated business development strategy for the company's urology franchise and was a member of the Cialis(R) pre-commercialization team created to develop ICOS sales force's strategy/configuration and pre-launch activities to establish brand character.

While at ICOS Corporation, he also secured a co-promotion agreement of Androgel: successfully led the cross-functional effort to identify products complementary to Cialis(R) and negotiated and executed a multi-million dollar co-promotion agreement for the ICOS sales force. He is also attributed with negotiating rights to a drug used to treat chronic painful bladder syndrome valued at over $25 million, and establishing a $68 million+ strategic alliance and cross-license agreement with a large, potentially competitive biotechnology company.

Prior to ICOS Corporation, Mr. Colasin was Sr. Finance Manager, Corporate Finance, for Amgen, Inc. from November 1998 to December 2000. He was a member of Amgen's cross-functional team responsible for the evaluation of drug candidates and management of marketed products for the company's Oncology Franchise. He developed a strong team and led commercial evaluation of oncology-related licensing efforts; he was the finance representative responsible for managing research, a third-party international partnership, and he supported M&A efforts including evaluation of acquisition targets, identifying comparables, determining optimal financing strategy, and supporting SEC filing efforts.

His position as Sr. Finance Manager followed Mr. Colasin's earlier contributions to Amgen as Marketing Manager, from July 1997 to October 1998, and Financial Analyst for the $1 billion+ drug EPOGEN(R), from February 1996 to June 1997. In his early roles with the company, he played a vital part in analyzing forecasts, financial models and sales trends critical to products and markets that the company was pursuing.

Mr. Colasin's initial analyst career was as Sr. Analyst for Putnam, Hayes & Bartlett, Inc., an economic and management consulting firm. With the firm, he diagnosed problems, created analytical frameworks, conducted analyses, developed conclusions, and presented recommendations to senior client management. He also provided analytical support to clients involved in a billion dollar+ licensing agreement dispute, including issues related to reimbursement policies, market penetration and product distribution.

Tony Colasin graduated from University of Southern California with a B.S., Business Administration and received his M.B.A, Finance in International Business Emphasis, in June 2000 from the Anderson School at UCLA.
