About PulmoScience Inc.

PulmoScience Inc. was established in 2006, and is currently developing a non-invasive Molecular Imaging technique for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism, Pulmonary Hypertension and Lung Inflammatory diseases under the trade name PulmoBind.

PulmoScience was conceived within the Montreal Heart Institute "MHI" (a world renowned hospital and educational facility). Jointly owned by MHI subsidiary Innovacor as the technical and operational partner, Dr Jocelyn Dupuis (the scientific director and originator of the PulmoBind Molecular Imaging technology), and by Pulmo BioTech Inc. as the funding partner, PulmoScience Inc. aims to develop this unique and exciting technology, to fund necessary trials, and to bring the products to market.

PulmoScience believes that the market for its product candidates is worth in excess of $500 million per annum and that, provided Regulatory Approval is achieved, the safety and efficacy of its products could allow it to dominate that market.

About PulmoBind

PulmoBind uses an intravenously delivered radionuclide tagged molecule which specifically bonds to the inner walls of the circulatory system in the lungs, and by the use of an external Gamma Camera allows an image of the integrity of the blood vessels throughout the lungs to be seen by a diagnostic clinician. PulmoScience is currently undertaking Regulatory Approval for Phase I Human Trials, and, while subsequent results from additional tests might not corroborate the current results, PulmoScience believes that PulmoBind has the potential to dominate the market for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism. In particular, this belief is driven by PulmoScience's expectations of the improved safety and efficacy that PulmoBind will offer when compared to the current incumbent nuclear medicine based technology for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism. In addition, early indications are that PulmoBind could be highly effective in the early stage diagnosis of Pulmonary Hypertension, a condition for which there is no current front line diagnostic test. The addressable market for the product candidates being developed by PulmoScience is believed by the company to be worth in excess of $500 million per annum.
