On October 22, 2007 at 8:00 a.m., Dr. Hall will present the scientific principles, the clinical validation, and global development status of the company's innovative pathotropic (disease-seeking)-targeting technology embodied in its lead product, Rexin-G, the first pathotropically targeted genetic medicine developed for the treatment of advanced-stage and metastatic cancer.

Caption: EpeiusThe Global Pharma R&D Summit 2007 (, which will be held at the Boston Marriott Hotel, Newton MA 02466 USA, on October 22-23, 2007, showcases cutting-edge biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies that are developing superior technologies and products in healthcare and healthcare related areas, and offers a forum to meet with suppliers, service providers, opinion leaders, and representatives from other leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies worldwide. The Keynote Address provides an opportunity for Epeius to update the industry in regard to its recent clinical developments and global partnering initiatives to expedite the international development of Rexin-G, which is currently in clinical trials in Europe, Japan, and ASEAN member countries, as well as the United States.

The focus on Epeius Biotechnologies during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is apropos-for the company has just opened an Advanced Phase I/II trial for chemo-resistant breast cancer in San Marino and Santa Monica California. Rexin-G, has received Orphan Drug Status from the FDA based on unprecedented demonstrations of single-agent efficacy in treating pancreatic cancer. Subsequently, the company has gained federal support and private agency support to continue their landmark clinical trials in the United States using intravenous Rexin-G for breast cancer that afflicts one of 4 women and sarcoma that afflicts teenagers and young adults. These Phase I/II clinical trials with adaptive trial designs will facilitate the development of Rexin-G for breast cancer, sarcoma and pancreatic cancer in the United States.

In addition to leading the advancement of bioscience and medicine from "the bench to the bedside" in a manner that is unprecedented in modern times, Dr. Hall and the senior management team of Epeius Biotechnologies continues to raise the bar for the biopharmaceutical industry in terms of corporate productivity, R&D efficiency, and significant drug development. Having (i) gained exclusive licensing rights for all of the tumor targeting and molecular-genetic technologies embodied in Rexin-G, (ii) conducted international clinical trials that validated the lead product, (iii) advanced the yield of biopharmaceutical GMP through a series of major technological innovations, (iv) attained both Orphan Drug Status and Expanded Access Designation through various regulatory authorities, (v) generated the company's first million dollars in revenues through product sales, and (vi) initiated a bold corporate outreach program that facilitated the development of strategic alliances and corporate partnering, Dr. Hall's invited Keynote Address at the Global Pharma R&D Summit will be a tough act to follow.
