Crystal Research Associates, LLC Issues Executive Informational Overview(R) (EIO(R)) on BELLUS Health Inc.
Date:1/13/2009

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Crystal Research Associates, LLC announced today that it has issued an Executive Informational Overview(R) (EIO(R)) on BELLUS Health Inc. (BLU: TSX). The full 52-page report can be found at www.crystalra.com.

BELLUS Health Inc. ("BELLUS Health" or "the Company") is a global health company focused on providing innovative pharmaceutical and nutraceutical solutions for critical unmet needs. BELLUS Health aims to generate revenue in the short to medium term through the marketing and sale of branded nutraceutical products, thus enabling the medium- to long-term development and commercialization of its pharmaceutical pipeline. The Company's pharmaceutical products target disorders with no known cures and limited treatments. BELLUS Health's most advanced pharmaceutical candidate is KIACTA(TM) (eprodisate), a Phase III compound to treat Amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis, a disease marked by an accumulation of abnormal proteins that can lead to organ failure and death. In a Phase II/III trial of eprodisate, patients on KIACTA(TM) (eprodisate) had a lower risk of progression of AA amyloidosis-related renal disease and a slower rate of decline in creatinine clearance (a reduction in clearance indicates worsened renal disease). BELLUS Health expects to file a new protocol amendment to the Investigational New Drug (IND) application for the second pivotal Phase III clinical trial of KIACTA(TM) in the first quarter 2009.

The Company's other pharmaceutical developments include NC-503 (eprodisate), which is currently in a proof-of-concept Phase II study in patients with Type II diabetes and certain features of metabolic syndrome, and a prodrug program for Alzheimer's disease (AD), which is at the preclinical development stage. The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, OVOS Natural Health Inc., is also commercializing a condition-specific, clinically tested branded nutraceutical to protect memory. This first product, VIVIMIND(TM), was launched in Canada in September 2008 and is also available via the Internet. The Company plans to market VIVIMIND(TM) in the U.S. in 2009 and in the EU in 2011.
