MultiCell Technologies Receives Final Payment Under QTDP Program

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MultiCell Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MCET.OB) has received the final cash grant award payment of $303,102 under the U.S. Government's Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project ("QTDP") program.  The QTDP program was created by Congress as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and provides a tax credit or cash grant equal to eligible costs and expenses.

To be eligible, a therapeutic development project must: (i) have the potential to develop new treatments that address "unmet medical needs" or chronic and acute diseases; (ii) reduce long-term health care costs; (iii) represent a significant advance in finding a cure for cancer; (iv) advance U.S. competitiveness in the fields of life, biological, and medical sciences; or (v) create or sustain well-paying jobs, either directly or indirectly. 

"We are pleased that our drug development programs for the treatment of cancer (MCT-465/485 and MCT-475) and for the treatment of fatigue in multiple sclerosis patients (MCT-125) qualified for certification under the QTDP program," said W. Gerald Newmin, Chairman and CEO of MultiCell.   

MultiCell applied for and was awarded a combined total of $1,466,875 as qualifying expenses under the QTDP program. The Company elected to take a cash grant in the amount of $733,437 rather than a $1,466,875 future tax credit. The Company had earlier received payments of $430,335 under this grant in 2010 and 2011 leaving the recently paid balance of $303,102.
