Nuvo's High Throughput Experimentation Platform Selected as 2009 Edison Award Finalist
Date:2/24/2009

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 24 /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 Nuvo's INSIGHT(TM) platform, developed by its San Diego based research and development subsidiary, fqubed, Inc., has been selected as one of four finalists in the Science and Medical category for the prestigious 2009 Edison Best New Product Awards(TM). The awards honour excellence in new product development, marketing, and innovation. Finalists in other categories include the Apple iPhone and Procter & Gamble's Olay Regenerist(R).

Skin-based or transdermal delivery is a sought-after mode of therapeutically administering molecules through the skin and into the body. Skin is a challenging barrier and measuring the effectiveness of multiple formulations' ability to pass through the skin is a prerequisite to developing optimized transdermal and topical treatments. INSIGHT is Nuvo's high throughput experimentation ("HTE") skin permeability screening platform that is 100-times faster than the traditional method of measuring the permeabilizing effect of a drug formulation. INSIGHT's key technological innovation is that it measures skin permeabilization indirectly, via changes in the skin's electrical impedance caused by application of a formulation. This dramatically speeds the measurement process and has allowed fqubed to discover extremely effective molecular penetration enhancer systems.

"This nomination is indicative of the cutting-edge research and development that we are doing at Nuvo Research," said John M. Newsam, fqubed's President and Managing Director. "INSIGHT is being used to accelerate the development of Nuvo's own topical and transdermal drug pipeline and also to open doors with potential partners seeking to co-develop therapeutic products using our HTE skin permeability screening platform."

The Edison Best New Product Awards, sponsored this year by Google, The Nielsen Company and Steelcase, focus on new products and services that excel in marketplace innovation, marketplace success, technological innovation, market structure innovation, and societal impact. These criteria align with Edison's own innovation best practices, called the Five Competencies of Innovation(TM). Gold, Silver and Bronze winners will be announced at an Awards Gala on April 1, 2009 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.
