China Pharma Holdings, Inc. to Initiate Clinical Trials For New Antibiotic Combination
Date:10/29/2008

China's SFDA Approves Entry into Clinical Trials on Schedule

HAIKOU CITY, China, Oct. 29 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. ("China Pharma") (OTC Bulletin Board: CPHI), which develops, manufactures, and markets generic and branded bio-pharmaceutical products in China, announced today that its novel antibiotic combination formula has been granted approval by China's State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) to enter clinical trials.

The Company will initiate clinical trials in November 2008 to evaluate this drug, a third generation Cephalosporin antibiotic combined with a bacterial-enzyme inhibitor, for the treatment of infections. The development timeline is consistent with the company's predictions.

China Pharma's CEO and president, Ms Zhilin Li, commented, "We are pleased that the SFDA has approved our new antibiotic formula to enter clinical trials within our anticipated timeframe. We look forward to initiating and completing these clinical trials over the next two years and hope to confirm previous results that showed significant efficacy in clearing antibiotic resistant bacterial strains. Antibiotic resistance is a growing global problem that requires the development of more advanced treatment to effectively combat resistant strains. Pending successful clinical development, this therapy could capture market share in China from Cephalosporin antibiotics used to address various infections, including hospital-acquired and respiratory infections, bacterial meningitis, and pneumonia."

Microbial antibiotic resistance has emerged as a major public health problem in China and throughout the world. Many Cephalosporins marketed in China, including third generation Cephalosporins, have encountered bacterial resistance. Surveillance in China up to 2005 shows that 20% to 70% of certain target pathogen strains may be resistant to one or more third generation Cephalosporins.(*) Despite this drug resistance, China's market for Cephalosporin antibiotics was approximately CNY 25.2 billion (USD$3.68 billion) in 2006 and is predicted to exceed CNY 38.3 billion (USD$5.6 billion) in 2008.(**)
