EMERYVILLE, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Neurobiological Technologies, Inc. (NTI(R)) (Nasdaq: NTII), today announced the appointment of William A. Fletcher as the Company's Acting Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Fletcher has been a director of NTI since February 2007. With the Acting CEO appointment, the board of directors has discontinued its previously announced search for a permanent, full-time president and chief executive officer.

Mr. Fletcher has been Chairman, Teva Pharmaceuticals North America since December 2004. Prior to that, he was President and Chief Executive Officer of Teva's North American activities from 1985 until the end of 2004. Mr. Fletcher served as Vice President, Sales and Marketing of the Pennsylvania-based Lemmon Company (1980 to 1983) and then as President (1983-1985) following the company's acquisition by Teva and WR Grace. Mr. Fletcher graduated in International Marketing from Woolwich Polytechnic, London (now Greenwich University) in 1969.

"Together with the rest of the board of directors, I am committed to determining the best direction for Neurobiological Technologies as we evaluate alternatives following the failure of our Viprinex(TM) program for stroke. I intend to lead this process in a disciplined and expeditious manner," stated Mr. Fletcher. "We are continuing to downsize the Company while critically assessing our obligations and commitments in order to determine the best value for our shareholders."
