Surface Logix Achieves Objectives With SLx-2101 in Phase 2a Clinical Trial in Hypertension
Date:1/8/2008

BOSTON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Surface Logix today announced positive results in the Company's Phase 2a clinical trial of SLx-2101 in hypertension. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover Phase 2a study in 60 patients with uncontrolled hypertension demonstrated that SLx-2101 caused clinically significant reductions in blood pressure and was well tolerated. The trial was designed to examine the safety, tolerability and effect on blood pressure in patients of repeat oral doses of SLx-2101 once daily for up to 14 days.

"These data confirm the promise of efficacy seen in earlier clinical trials, and we plan to initiate a Phase 2b study of SLx-2101 in hypertension in the third quarter of 2008," said Jim Mahoney, President and CEO of Surface Logix. "We believe that with our demonstrated 24-hour coverage from once daily dosing and excellent tolerability profile, we will be able to uniquely position SLx-2101 in several segments of the hypertension market."

SLx-2101 is an oral, potent, selective, fast-onset, long-acting PDE5 inhibitor. Other PDE5 inhibitors have traditionally been used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). SLx-2101 was designed specifically to expand the therapeutic potential of PDE5 inhibition beyond ED into larger cardiovascular markets such as hypertension. SLx-2101 is uniquely positioned among the known PDE5 inhibitors to address cardiovascular disease because, compared to currently marketed PDE5 drugs, SLx-2101 preferentially distributes into cardiovascular tissue. With its large volume of distribution, SLx-2101 achieves sustained plasma levels and a long duration of action, without showing accumulation upon repeat dosing. This allows for daily or on demand dosing with a predictable response in a number of cardiovascular disorders that currently marketed PDE5 therapies cannot adequately address.

"To achieve efficacy in cardiovascular disease, your compound has to get into the right tissues," commented Dr. Pau
