Cystic Fibrosis Axentis Pharma Initiates Clinical Trial for Lung Infections
Date:9/4/2008

ever, we are already in a position to initiate clinical trials to fully assess its safety and tolerability and gather information on appropriate doses. I am very pleased for patients suffering from cystic fibrosis, who will benefit directly from this promising once-a-day treatment: a significant improvement both in treatment and patient management. This is also great news for our investors, who have helped us to advance so far in a very short time."

Fluidosome(R) technology is based on the well characterised drug tobramycin. Utilising synthetic liposomes containing tobramycin, a standard nebulizer delivers the drug directly to the endobronchial sites of infection in cystic fibrosis patients. This results in prolonged, high local drug concentration, which in turn achieves higher efficacy and enables lower doses.

The phase II study will be carried out in 4 international centres. A total of 24 patients will receive treatment: Eight will receive a twice-daily 300 mg dose of the current tobramycin formulation over 28 days; another eight will be given a twice-daily 150 mg dose of Fluidosome(R) over two weeks and later a third group will receive one 300 mg dose of Fluidosome(R) per day for two weeks.

The company has also announced the appointment of two renowned experts to its Scientific Advisory Board. Prof. Adriano Aguzzi, Director of the Institute of Neuropathology at University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland and Prof. Gergely C. Lukacs, Canada Research Chair, Department of Physiology at McGill University Montreal, Canada will in future advise Axentis Pharma on scientific and medical issues related to the company's product pipeline.

Dr. Schreier on the latest additions to the team: "Axentis Pharma is very happy to have such outstanding experts on its Scientific Advisory Board. Just as our investors provide us with the trust and financial means that are essential to the ongoing development of our products, Prof. Aguzzi and Prof. Lukacs will cont
