Date:3/12/2013

NEWTON, Mass., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Topokine Therapeutics, a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing therapies for dermatology and medical aesthetics, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive license agreement with the University of Bristol.  Under the terms of the agreement, the Company has acquired exclusive worldwide rights to use, for all skin applications, a novel method to manufacture a class of prostaglandins that reduces fat.  Additional terms were not disclosed. 

The revolutionary technology, which one expert has called "unbeatable in its conciseness and elegance", greatly simplifies synthesis of prostaglandins.  It is expected to improve manufacturing efficiency by 5-10 fold and substantially reduce manufacturing costs.  The technology, featured in the September 13th, 2012 issue of Nature magazine, was developed at the University of Bristol by Professor Varinder Aggarwal and colleagues.

"There is remarkable synergy between our research and Topokine's innovative products.  I look forward to helping advance Topokine's efforts by applying our synthesis technology," said Professor Aggarwal, a Fellow of the Royal Society who has joined Topokine's Advisory Board.

"Professor Aggarwal's group is at the cutting-edge of prostaglandin chemistry," said Murat Kalayoglu, MD, PhD, Topokine President & CEO.  "This exclusive license further enhances our IP position, and we are excited to collaborate with him and the University of Bristol."
