Therapure Biopharma Inc. signs fill/finish contract with Kane Biotech Inc.

Therapure will provide fill/finish services to support product development.

Toronto, ON (Vocus) March 29, 2010 -- Therapure Biopharma Inc. today announced a fill/finish contract with Kane Biotech Inc. (V.KNE), a Canadian biotechnology company based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Under the terms of the agreement, Therapure will provide custom fill/finish services for a key development-stage product for Kane Biotech. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Kane Biotech is a biotechnology company engaged in the development of products to prevent and disperse biofilms. Biofilms are a major cause of a number of serious medical problems including chronic infections and medical device related infections. Biofilms develop on surfaces such as catheters, prosthetic implants, teeth, lungs and the urogenital tract. Biofilms are pervasive, costly to deal with and approximately 80% of all human bacterial infections involve biofilms. The healing of chronic wounds alone costs the US health care system $20 billion per year.

“Therapure has signed a variety of fill/finish contracts recently, demonstrating the flexibility of our Health Canada licensed facility” said Thomas Wellner, President and CEO of Therapure. "Our agreement with Kane Biotech includes hand-fill services conducted under Good Manufacturing Practices standards," continued Mr. Wellner.

"Therapure was quick to provide a detailed service proposal that clearly indicated they understood our requirements," said Gord Froehlich, President and CEO of Kane. "We look forward to working closely with Therapure as we advance out products through the approval process," Mr. Froehlich concluded.
