Date:7/30/2008

CHICAGO, July 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - ANAVEX Life Sciences Corp. (OTCBB: AVXL), a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of novel therapeutics to treat Central Nervous System (CNS) diseases and cancer, today presented data from the company's novel compound, ANAVEX 1-41, targeting Alzheimer's disease, at the International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease (ICAD) 2008, Chicago, USA, July 26 to 31, 2008. The compound has a synergistic neuroprotective and anti-apoptotic effect in Alzheimer's disease in animal models using amyloid (beta) 25-35 peptide.

"We are pleased by our continued progress in the development of ANAVEX 1-41, and are excited to be presenting data regarding its potent neuroprotective and anti-apoptotic properties at such low doses at ICAD," said Dr. Vamvakides, Chief Scientific Officer of ANAVEX. "Based on our pre-clinical studies to date, we continue to believe that ANAVEX 1-41 may offer disease-modifying options that reverse memory and learning deficits and protect nerve cells from death."

The Anavex Life Sciences presentation is entitled: "Neuroprotective effects of activators/agonists of the sigma-1 chaperone protein against amyloid toxicity in a mouse mode". The authors are: Tanguy Maurice (1), Vanessa Villard (1), Johann Meaner (1), Emetine Keller (1), Fanny Malaria (1), Alexandre Vamvakides (2) 1. Inserm U. 710, EPHE, Univ. Montpellier II, Montpellier, France 2. Anavex Life Sciences, Pallini, Greece.

The presentation notes:

Neuroprotection was attained in the ANAVEX 1-41 compound at very low doses (0,1mg/kg) in mice. At the same doses there was synergy between Sigma-1 receptors and Muscarinic receptors, amplifying the anti-amnesic potential effects, as well as the anti-apoptotic and the anti-oxidative stress potential.

Neuroprotection is the most important component necessary to attain long-term benefits in neurodegenerative diseases. In Alzheimer's disease, neuroprotection
