Date:6/16/2008

Olympus Corporation to Support the Joint Program through the Provision of

Novel Imaging Systems Collaboration Will Bring Innovative Fluorescent Imaging Agent and System

Technologies into Clinical Trials in Ovarian Cancer

PHILADELPHIA, TOKYO and WOBURN, Mass, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Fox Chase Cancer Center and VisEn Medical today announced a partnership to advance Phase I clinical trials of one of VisEn Medical's "smart" fluorescence activatable imaging agents to enable physicians to identify and characterize early stage disease in oncology patients. Olympus Medical Systems Corp. will provide paired fluorescence laparoscopic imaging systems to enable the detection and evaluation of ProSense highlighted tumors in patients in the trials. The clinical trials will initially focus on ovarian cancer and are planned to begin in 2009 at Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Under terms of the program, VisEn will develop and submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) application on a clinical analog of its proprietary fluorescence molecular imaging agent, ProSense(R), which highlights certain enzymatic processes associated with early stage cancer development in vivo. In addition to conducting the clinical trials, Fox Chase Cancer Center will invest in the ProSense clinical program through VisEn and will receive certain rights, equity and royalties on future sales.

"These clinical molecular imaging technologies should provide the foundations for earlier and more accurate disease detection, and more importantly, enhanced functional imaging capabilities that will eventually help guide therapeutic interventions," said Michael V. Seiden, MD, Ph.D., President and CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center. "Promoting advances in diagnosis that may lead to improved cancer treatments is a key part of Fox Chase's approach to solving the cancer problem, and we are pleased to be working with two of the leaders in molecular imaging to help bring
