Senetek PLC Gains Six Year Extension of Rights from Czech Republic Institute of Experimental Botany

Additional Group of Compounds and Enhanced Research Activities Added to Agreement

NAPA, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Senetek PLC (OTC Bulletin Board: SNKTY), a Life Sciences company engaged in the development of technologies that target the science of healthy aging, announced a six year extension of existing rights under its agreement with the Czech Republic Institute of Experimental Botany to receive exclusive global licenses, for all applications, to any cytokinin developed, in-licensed or otherwise acquired by the Institute and the right to co-exploit with the Institute any cytokinins that Senetek does not elect to in-license. Senetek also has a right of first refusal before the Institute can license any of its non-cytokinin compounds to any third party for cosmeceutical or anti-aging dermatological applications. In addition, a new group of compounds, "supercytokin plus", has been added to the agreement. The Institute will also perform enhanced research activities in the areas of pre-selective assay, development of analytical methods, stability testing, large scale synthesis and molecular mechanism of action.

"We are very pleased to extend our exclusive agreement with the Institute of Experimental Botany," stated Frank J. Massino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Senetek PLC. "Our two commercialized topical skincare products, Pyratine-6(TM) for photodamaged skin and Pyratine XR(TM) which, in a rosacea-specific study, demonstrated continual improvement for all of the major symptoms of rosacea, are based on compounds developed by the Institute. Sixteen additional compounds developed by the Institute for our exclusive use have shown positive activity related to indications with significant commercial potential. We look forward to obtaining new and advanced technology from the Institute over the next six years."

"Our relationship with Senetek has been excellent and has resulted in achieving the goal of successfully commercializing our research," stated Prof. Ing. Miroslav Strnad, DrSc., Executive Board Member of the Institute. "We look forward to the next six years and our continuing development of advanced technologies for dermatological therapeutics."
