Planet Technologies Announces Completion of Antigen Laboratories Acquisition
Date:11/9/2007

RIDGEFIELD, Conn. and LIBERTY, Mo., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Planet Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLNT), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on providing products for allergy and asthma sufferers, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Antigen Laboratories, Inc. (Antigen), a privately-held FDA licensed manufacturer of allergenic extracts for immunotherapy.

"As announced in September, the acquisition of Antigen's allergenic extract immunotherapy business complements our existing allergen avoidance product business. The Antigen transaction continues to deliver on our strategy to acquire and build specialty allergy businesses, focused on marketing value-added products to allergy sufferers through allergy-related physicians in the United States," said Ed Steube, Chief Executive Officer and President of Planet.

Antigen will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Planet. Physicians use Antigen's allergenic extracts for immunotherapy, which historically have been administered to patients in controlled doses by subcutaneous injections ("SCIT"). Antigen provides allergenic extracts to over 1,500 physicians in the United States annually.

Importantly, upon completion of the acquisition, the company intends to commence a sublingual immunotherapy ("SLIT") clinical development program. SLIT is the administration of immunotherapy through drops of allergenic extract being placed under the tongue, versus the traditional SCIT route of administration. The company believes that an FDA-approved SLIT product will substantially expand the U.S. market for allergen immunotherapy, as allergy-related physicians will have the enhanced option of offering either SCIT or SLIT based immunotherapy for
