University Health Network Key Developments

Generex Biotechnology Corp. Collaborates with University Health Network for Buccal Insulin Project

Generex Biotechnology Corporation announced that it has entered into a collaboration with University Health Network (UHN) pursuant to which UHN's Centre for Molecular Design and Preformulations (CMDP) will spearhead the Company's buccal insulin refinement project. The goal of the project is to increase the insulin bioavailability of Generex Oral-lyn(TM), the Company's proprietary buccal insulin spray product, thereby reducing the number of puffs required to achieve effective prandial metabolic control for patients with diabetes. This research will ensure the product is more attractive to patients and prospective commercialization partners.

Sernova Corp. Agrees on Terms with the University Health Network of Toronto to Gain Access to Proprietary Stem Cell Technology for the Treatment of Diabetes

Sernova Corp. announced that it has agreed on key terms with the University Health Network of Toronto (UHN) to gain access to worldwide, exclusive rights to certain patent-pending technologies developed by distinguished UHN researchers, Dr. Cristina Nostro and Dr. Gordon Keller, for the advancement of insulin-producing stem cells for the treatment of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes. Sernova and UHN have entered into a Term Sheet with an exclusive negotiation period which outlines the terms of the definitive license agreement for the granting of an exclusive license to Sernova covering all patent rights relating to the UHN stem cell technologies including for the treatment of diabetes. A product development program is also being designed to advance the technologies from preclinical proof-of-concept studies through to human testing on an expedited basis. Sernova believes the proprietary product - insulin producing stem cells, protected locally from immune system attack and placed within Sernova's prevascularized Cell Pouch(TM) - has the potential to provide a significant break-through in the quality of treatment for the millions of people suffering from insulin-dependent diabetes, following successful preclinical and clinical testing. Such individuals could essentially be liberated from their current onerous regime of daily blood glucose testing and insulin administration delivered through injections or electronic means which is expected to materially improve their quality of life while also reducing short term and longer term health care costs.
