Helix BioMedix to Discuss Potential of Its Proprietary Peptides at,the BIO International Convention

BOTHELL, Wash., April 18, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Helix BioMedix, Inc. today announced that Timothy Falla, Ph.D, Chief Scientific Officer, will present an update on the company's new generation of small molecule peptide (lipohexapeptide) technology at the BIO International Convention. The convention will take place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in Boston, MA from May 6th through 9th. Dr. Falla's presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, May 9th, Room D at 10:00 am.

Dr. Falla's presentation will discuss the company's research on the potential of lipohexapeptides as broad spectrum anti-infectives in the prevention of wound infections caused by multiple-resistant hard to treat pathogens such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa in burns, Staphylococcus aureus in surgical wounds and Acinetobacter baumannii in trauma wounds. The company's lipohexapeptides are designed specifically to overcome the disadvantages that have hampered the industry's previous attempts to develop therapeutic antimicrobial peptides. These 'new generation' peptides are excellent drug candidates due to their low toxicity, attractive cost of goods profile, and evidence of efficacy in both bacterial and fungal infection models.

Helix BioMedix's peptides are also currently bringing value-added performance benefits to the cosmeceutical and personal care markets in the areas of anti-acne and anti-aging skin care. The company believes that an increasing number of industry leaders and skin care clinicians are identifying peptides as the next generation of cosmetic skin care technology and the company's proprietary peptides are being incorporated into a growing number of products through various licensing agreements.

Helix BioMedix will be participating in the BIO Business Forum Partnering Program. In 2007, Helix BioMedix has plans to accelerate its entry into the arena of pharmaceutical topical anti-infectives with a focus on the large anti-infective dermatology market, including indications such as acne and dermatitis. The company also hopes to increase the number of peptide-enhanced personal care products that contain Helix BioMedix peptides in the next several years.

The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), founded in 1993, is a nonprofit association that represents more than 1,100 biotechnology companies, state and international affiliates, and related organizations. BIO is widely known for the BIO International Convention, a four-day annual biotechnology showcase that draws about 20,000 attendees. The convention serves to educate the public and policymakers about biotechnology, while fostering partnering meetings and other business development activities that keep the industry growing.
