GENova gains access to Big Pharma
Date:9/15/2009

NEW YORK, NY, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - (OTCBB: GVBP.OB) - GENova Biotherapeutics Inc. ("GENova"), a cancer drug acquisition and development company, is pleased to announce it has gained access to distribution channels for its promising drug targets through a recently-signed deal with Bridge BioResearch Plc. ("Bridge BioResearch"). GENova expects to generate licensing fees and royalties from the out-licensed manufacturing and marketing rights to leading pharmaceutical companies to exceed more than 5% in a market currently valued at $3billion+ a year over the following 15-20 years which is the duration of the patents.

Bridge BioResearch is an international drug discovery company that focuses on metabolic disorders, and has well-established distribution channels and relationships with leading pharmaceutical companies.

Through a recent collaboration deal, the two companies are working together to leverage their respective Research and Development partners and distribution channels worldwide, with the mutual goal of developing their proprietary drug targets with the utmost cost and time efficiency.

The two companies are both in the business of acquiring early-stage developmental drugs, out-licensing them for development and commercialization, and garnering royalty payments in the process. GENova's focus is oncology, while Bridge BioResearch specializes in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes drugs. Both companies share a mutual goal of fast-tracking their target drugs through development, clinical studies, licensing to Big Pharma such as Biogen, Elan, Merck's and Genentech.

"This reciprocal arrangement is a huge benefit to both companies," says Aaron Whiteman, CEO for GENova. "I am confident that with our new access to Big Pharma distribution channels we can usher our promising patents through the development process as expeditiously as possible, and ultimately start reaping royalty payments sooner than ever foreseen."
