Revenues for the second quarter of 2007 were $3.7 million compared to $4.0 million in the same quarter last year. Research and development expenses were $7.4 million in the three months ended Dec. 31, 2007 versus $5.7 million in the same period last year.

General and administrative expenses were $1.9 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2007 versus $1.6 million in the same period last year.

Net loss for the second quarter ended Dec. 31, 2007 was $6.9 million, or $0.36 per share, compared with a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.74 per share, for the second quarter of 2006.

Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2007 were $7.6 million versus $8.8 million in the same period of 2006. Research and development expenses were $12.9 million in the six months ended Dec. 31, 2007 versus $11.5 million in the same period of 2006. General and administrative expenses were $3.6 million for the six months ended Dec. 31 compared to expenses of $3.1 million for the same period in 2006. Net loss for the six months ended Dec. 31, 2007 was $7.8 million, or $0.65 per share, compared to net loss of $5.5 million, or $1.31 per share, for the six-months ended Dec. 31, 2006.

Cash, cash equivalents and total investments were $52.8 million at December 31, 2007.

Paul Freiman, NTII president and chief executive officer stated, "During the quarter, we completed an offering underwritten by Merriman Curhan & Ford that raised $55 million of net proceeds. This will support our Phase 3 clinical trials for Viprinex(TM). We are pleased that the investors in this offering included existing shareholders, significant new institutional investors and members of our Board of Directors. We continue to invest in our key asset, Viprinex, for acute ischemic stroke currently in two Phase III clinical trials. We believe Viprinex has the potential to double the treatment window over the current approved drug, while at the same time reducing the major side effects of fibrinolytics, namely, symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage."

Freiman continued: "I am also very pleased Dr. Warren Wasiewski, who joined NTII in February 2007 as Vice President, Clinical Programs was promoted to Chief Medical Officer of NTII with primary responsibility for running the clinical trial program for Viprinex. Dr. Wasiewski is a Board Certified Pediatric Neurologist with an extensive clinical career. Prior to joining NTII, he worked at AstraZeneca where he was Sr. Medical Director of clinical research CNS/Emerging Products. At AstraZeneca, Dr. Wasiewski had responsibility for running the global SAINT trials for AstraZeneca's neuroprotectant drug candidate."

About Viprinex Phase 3 Trial Program

Viprinex is an investigational agent with multiple novel mechanisms of action that appear to have the potential to expand the treatment window for treating acute ischemic stroke with a lower risk of intracranial bleeding. The only approved agent to treat stroke is required to be given within the first three hours of stroke symptoms primarily due to increased bleeding risk beyond that window. This time limit has been a barrier to receiving care and improving outcomes and quality of life for stroke patients. Previous large Phase III trials have demonstrated that Viprinex may be effective and appears to be well tolerated for acute ischemic stroke.
