GenOdyssee has Received Notice of Allowance of United States Patent Application Covering its Lead HCV Interferon-alpha Product GEA007.1, a

Natural Protein With Improved Anti-HCV Genotype 1 Activity

PARIS, France, February 14 /PRNewswire/ -- GenOdyssee S.A., a biotechnology company dedicated to the discovery and development of improved 'next generation' blockbuster protein therapeutic products, announced today that it has received notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) of its Patent Application Ndegrees 10/691,653 covering its lead anti-HCV IFN-alpha product GEA007.1 for application in the treatment of hepatitis C. GEA007.1 is a naturally occurring mutant of human IFN alpha 17. In preclinical studies, GEA007.1 demonstrated improved intrinsic anti-genotype 1 antiviral properties without increased toxicity at therapeutic doses used in HCV treatments, as compared to standard of care IFN-alpha 2 drugs.

"We are very happy with this notice of allowance, which represents an important milestone for us. Combined with the granting in the European Union in 2006 of our patent application covering GEA007.1, this is a proof-of-concept of the global standard of innovation set by our lead HCV program," said Jean-Louis Escary, Ph.D., CEO of GenOdyssee. Similar to the European Patent Office notice of allowance report on this product that was issued in 2006, the current USPTO notice of allowance report did not reveal any prior art references relevant to the invention constituted by GEA007.1.

A recent communication with the USPTO revealed that GenOdyssee's patent application covering a second lead IFN-alpha drug candidate, GEA009.2, to be used in cancer, is expected to be allowed in the United States in the near future. "This confirms the uniqueness of GenOdyssee's proprietary technology as well as our global leadership position in the interferon arena," said Dr. Escary. "Our technology has also proven to
