Date:3/18/2010

HARBIN, China, March 18 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Sky One Medical, Inc. ("China Sky One Medical" or "the Company") (Nasdaq: CSKI), a leading fully integrated pharmaceutical company producing over-the-counter drugs in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that Antroquinonol (Hocena) capsule, a new anti-cancer drug co-developed by Taiwan Golden Biotechnology Corporation ("Golden Biotech") was recognized as Breakthrough Drug by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology.

In order to promote innovation within the Chinese pharmaceutical industry, the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) and Chinese Ministry of Health (MoH) launched a project to support the research and development of breakthrough drugs which are used to treat cancer, AIDS, and cardio- and cerebro-vascular diseases. The government will not only accelerate the processing of new drug applications but also provide financial and technical support for these breakthrough drugs.

"We are honored to receive this recognition and we appreciate the government's support for our R&D efforts, which reinforces our commitment to expand our drug portfolio and develop high-value drugs. The Antroquinonol capsule is the first drug to be recognized as Breakthrough Drug in the Heilongjiang Province. We anticipate its research progress and new drug application procedures will be greatly shortened. We look forward to receiving the approval to enter into clinical trial within one year and we hope to receive SFDA final approval for production within three years," said Mr. Yan-Qing Liu, Chairman and CEO of China Sky One Medical.

In May 2009, the Company signed an agreement with Taiwan Golden Biotechnology Corporation to begin cooperating on the development of Antroquinonol, which is a kind of compound extracted from Antrodia Cinnamomea Chang & Chou, a rare medicinal fungus that grows naturally inside the Cinnamonum kanehirae tree trunk, a native tree species of Taiwan. It can be used in the treatment of liver cancer and lung cancer. Antroquinonol has been approved by the U.S. FDA to enter into first stage clinical trial.
