Date:6/8/2012

DANBURY, Conn., June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Biodel Inc. (Nasdaq: BIOD) and Aegis Therapeutics, LLC (Aegis) today announced a partnership providing Biodel an exclusive worldwide license to Aegis' proprietary ProTek® and Intravail® technologies for the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical formulations of glucagon.  ProTek® protein stabilization technology comprises the use of proprietary GRAS excipients that prevent aggregation of proteins and peptides thereby improving the stability of drug product formulated with these excipients.  Intravail® comprises a broad class of transmucosal absorption enhancement agents that allow non-invasive systemic delivery of potent peptide, protein, nucleotide-related, and other small and large molecule drugs.
