NanoBio(R) Corporation Completes $30 Million in Equity Funding by Meeting Key Development Milestones
Date:3/6/2008

ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoBio(R) Corporation has received its third $10 million tranche of equity funding from Perseus LLC, after having successfully met three critical development milestones: validating the efficacy and safety of its two topical treatments for skin infections and demonstrating the strength of its influenza vaccine in ferret studies.

The company, a spin-off from the University of Michigan, has received a total of $30 million over the past 18 months from Perseus LLC, a leading private equity management firm. The funding has enabled NanoBio to conduct phase 2 clinical trials on its two lead products, topical lotions NB-001 for herpes labialis (cold sores) and NB-002 for onychomycosis (nail fungus). Additionally, the funding has supported extensive animal studies supporting the company's nasal vaccines against influenza, hepatitis B and several additional pathogens.

Preliminary analyses of the data demonstrate the lotions have potent antiviral and antifungal effects without safety concerns or systemic absorption, according to NanoBio scientists.

Phase 2a and Phase 2b clinical trials on NB-001 are complete, while phase 2 clinical trials on NB-002 are in progress and will be completed by the first quarter of 2009. Final data will be presented after the data have undergone peer review processes.

"We're delighted by the considerable progress NanoBio has achieved in all dimensions, most notably its efficacy and safety data in the clinical realm," said Norman C. Selby, senior managing director at Perseus. "We are also pleased that the company has built a sound business infrastructure and a robust research program in the vaccine arena.

"The company's platform technology is proving to be highly effective in combating a broad range of viruses, bacteria and fungi, and we're eagerly anticipating the next round of data on its vaccine studies," he added.

Based on the positive data, NanoBio will move immediately to plan phase 3 testing of NB-001, said James R. Baker Jr., M.D., founder and chairman of NanoBio Corporation.
