Forward-looking statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that reflect management's current views of future events, including the status of development of the dietary supplement formulation, Kibow Biotics(R), for kidney failure applications, and the possible benefits of Kibow Biotics in slowing the progression of chronic kidney failure or helping patients feel better. Kibow is not a pharmaceutical company. Kibow products are not drugs and may not be considered as a treatment or a therapy. The dietary supplement formulation of Kibow Biotics will not cure, prevent or mitigate any disease. Actual results may differ significantly from the above forward-looking statements due to a number of factors including but not limited to the possibility that Kibow Biotics(R) may not prove to be safe or show evidence of clinical activity in the current limited human trials or that data from patients enrolled in the study may not be useful or conclusive or sufficient to guide future development of Kibow Biotics(R). Other factors that could cause or contribute to differences in actual results include, but are not limited to, whether or not the Company or any of its collaborators will be able to develop dietary supplements using the technologies of the Company; risks associated with completing clinical trials of product candidates; the possibility that clinical testing may reveal to be undesirable and unintended side effects or other characteristics that may prevent or limit the commercial use of proposed products; whether the cash resources of the Company will be sufficient to fund operations as planned; reliance on key employees, especially senior management; the uncertainty of the Company's future access to capital; the risk that the Company may not secure or maintain relationships with collaborators; and the Company's dependence on intellectual property. The Company expressly disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward- looking statements except as required by law.
