CytoGenix Announces Successful Testing of synDNA Vaccine for Avian,Influenza Virus

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 4, 2007 - CytoGenix, Inc. (CYGX.OB) announced today that it has successfully completed an important pilot study with a novel synDNA(TM) vaccine designed for humans (therapeutic) and intended to protect against the avian (H5N1) influenza virus. The study clearly demonstrated a robust protective effect in mice treated with the Company's synDNA(TM) vaccine whereas all the untreated control animals died after both groups were challenged with a highly virulent strain of avian influenza virus (Vietnam/1203/04). The lethal challenge testing was conducted by recognized collaborators in the field under a sponsored research agreement with the Company.

The complete results from this study and related tests of synDNA(TM) vaccines will be presented at the 2007 DNA Vaccine conference to be held 23-25 May 2007 in Malaga, Spain.

Dr. Yin Chen, Chief Scientific Officer, stated, "This novel DNA vaccine was produced using a unique combination of novel gene sequences and our proprietary synDNA(TM) production technology. We are extremely excited about this initial robust response in an animal challenge model."

CytoGenix, Inc. is a Houston-based biopharmaceutical company that develops and markets innovative products and services based on its proprietary synDNA(TM) production and ssDNA expression technology. The company has developed a breakthrough synthetic process for large-scale production of biologically active DNA that can be made faster and cleaner than production using traditional fermentation methods and has developed a novel expression vector that enables production of ssDNA sequences inside the cell. CytoGenix currently holds 11 granted patents and about 36 international or US pending patent applications claiming methods and materials in connection with these platform technologies.
