International Isotopes Inc. Announces the Completion of an Agreement in Principle With Idaho State University for the Production of Copper-67 for Experimental Use in Cancer Treatment
Date:11/8/2011

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International Isotopes Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: INIS), a leading manufacturer of nuclear medicine products, is pleased to announce it has completed an agreement in principle with Idaho State University to jointly develop processes for the production of Copper-67.  Copper-67 has shown exceptional potential in the treatment of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma as well as bladder, colorectal, and ovarian cancers.  However, it is a difficult isotope to produce and has not been consistently made available in the U.S.  This has restricted its evaluation in cancer research and clinical trials.

Idaho State University (ISU) has developed what is believed to be a technologically advanced method for producing the isotope using technologies housed in the Idaho Accelerator Center.  Under the terms of the anticipated definitive agreement, ISU will produce the raw isotope at their accelerator center and International Isotopes will transfer the material to its facility where it will be processed and packaged in its final form.   In addition to its work at the accelerator center, ISU is providing the expertise for chemical processing.  International Isotopes will make an in- kind contribution of equipment for the isotope processing, technical support for packaging and shipping, and supporting safety staff. The International Isotopes' facility is specifically licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for this type of activity and its facility is also registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a manufacturing facility for drug products – a classification that will help facilitate the commercial development of the Copper-67 product.  The parties expect to have definitive agreements executed within the coming weeks and plan to begin work later this month.    

Steve T. Laflin, President and CEO of INIS stated, "We are very pleased to have the opportunity to wo
