Unigene and Tarix Pharmaceuticals Report Highly Increased Oral Bioavailability of "Peptelligence-engineered" TXA127
Date:9/19/2012

BOONTON, N.J. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unigene Laboratories, Inc. (OTCBB: UGNE) and Tarix Pharmaceuticals today announced the successful completion of a feasibility study of an oral formulation of TXA127, Tarix's lead peptide drug candidate.  Data from the feasibility study demonstrated that the oral formulation of TXA127 produced extremely high exposure in the blood that resulted in a several-fold increase in bioavailability as compared to the oral delivery of the unformulated drug, and was equal to or greater than that achieved by the current subcutaneous formulation.

The oral formulation, developed jointly by Unigene and Tarix under a previously agreed upon feasibility program, leverages Unigene's Peptelligence™ technology platform to enable enhanced oral delivery of TXA127. Tarix is developing TXA127 for multiple therapeutic indications, including enhancement of engraftment following peripheral blood and cord blood stem cell transplantation, reduction in GVHD and mucositis following allogeneic stem cell transplantation, and peripheral vascular disease. In September 2011, TXA127 was granted orphan drug status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), a rare disease resulting from insufficient cardiac output.  Unigene's Peptelligence™ platform comprises peptide oral drug delivery and manufacturing assets, expertise and capabilities.

Ashleigh Palmer, Unigene's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The results of the TXA127 feasibility study exceeded our expectations and clearly indicate that Unigene's Peptelligence™ platform is the gold-standard for developing orally administered peptides.  Not only did the oral formulation of TXA127 deliver the drug successfully, data from the study showed that it produced a highly significant increase in bioavailability. We greatly look forward to extending our relationship with Tarix
