We hope to quickly resolve our FDA issues and proceed with the commercialization of our skin cholesterol test in the US market."

The unsecured debentures mature 18 months after the date of issuance at an amount equal to CDN$1,176 per CDN$1,000 principal amount. The Company has agreed to certain pre-payable forced redemptions at the option of the holders or the Company. The Company has also issued approximately five million common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants"), each Warrant being exercisable for a period of five years into one common share at $0.2759, a price equal to 100% of the 5-day volume-weighted average price of the common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
