Date:11/1/2007

SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) today announced that it was awarded a contract extension by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases' (NIAID) Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID), part of the National Institutes of Health, to provide malaria vaccine production and support services.

The seven-year cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has an estimated value of $32.7 million. The contract extension represents a follow-on effort for previous work SAIC has been performing for NIAID since 2000.

The SAIC-led team will deliver research and development services to support process development and pilot lot production of promising malaria vaccine candidates into products suitable for evaluation in human clinical studies. SAIC will serve as the project management arm for these activities, helping to identify optimal production and purification strategies for clinical-grade malaria immunogens, performing pilot lot production, formulation, preclinical testing, and providing nonclinical development support for promising vaccine candidates. SAIC will also provide regulatory support for investigational new drug applications.

"SAIC is honored that NIAID has selected us to continue to support the development and characterization of malaria vaccine candidates," said Robert McCord, SAIC business unit general manager. "Our life sciences team is dedicated to the search for a viable vaccine for this disease, which kills more than one million infants, young children and pregnant women every year."

SAIC is a leading provider of scientific, engineering, systems integration and technical services and solutions
