HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA -- (October 17, 2007) - WayPoint Biomedical Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WYPH) announced today that its Board of Directors has initiated the process to move the Company to the National Over The Counter Bulletin Board Market, for purposes of the public trading of the Company's stock.
