MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Nuvo Research Inc. (TSX: NRI), a Canadian drug development company focused on the research and development of drug products delivered to and through the skin using its topical and transdermal drug delivery technologies, today announced that it has licensed the exclusive rights from Paladin Labs Inc. (TSX: PLB) to develop and commercialize a novel topical pain formulation with the potential to treat inflammatory and neuropathic pain conditions. The formulation is in the pre-clinical formulation development stage and is the subject of a pending patent application.

Nuvo will issue to Paladin 961,538 common shares having a value of $125,000 for the right to commercialize this topical pain product. As part of the transaction, Paladin may receive an additional payment of $250,000 upon achievement of a regulatory milestone and will have rights to market, distribute and sell the product in Canada, South America, Central America and South Africa. Nuvo will receive royalties on Paladin sales and will have exclusive rights to exploit the licensed formulation in all other territories, including the United States.

Paladin has also invested $1,000,000 in return for 7,692,307 Nuvo common shares and 769,230 warrants (representing 10% of the number of common shares issued) by way of a private placement. Each warrant entitles Paladin to acquire one Nuvo common share during the three year period following the closing at a price of $0.169. The value of the common shares issued to Paladin is based on Nuvo's weighted average trading price on the TSX for the five day trading period ending May 20, 2008. The proceeds of the private placement will be used by Nuvo for general corporate purposes, including expenses relating to development of the licensed product.

"We are pleased to expand both our relationship with Paladin and our topical analgesic drug pipeline," said John London, Nuvo's Vice Chairman. "Paladin's investment further strengthens our financial position as we continue to develop our early stage pipeline and move toward our resubmission of Pennsaid for US approval in early 2009."

"The topical pain market is growing at a rapid rate and Nuvo, with its San Diego based transdermal research centre, has established a global leadership position in terms of people, technology and infrastructure to successfully develop topical formulations and obtain regulatory approval for this promising pain product," said Jonathan Ross Goodman, President and CEO of Paladin. "We are pleased to license this technology to Nuvo and look forward to marketing and selling it in the future."
