Smartec Acquires Technology for Detecting Early Stage Cancers

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - November 30, 2007) - Smartec Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: SMHN) (the "Company" or "Smartec") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding Asset Purchase Agreement dated November 27, 2007 with two private companies in respect to the purchase of a proprietary technology for the generation of monoclonal antibodies against various antigens in consideration for 25,638,400 shares in the common stock of the Company. The acquisition is expected to close on or before January 15, 2008.

The acquired technology is very unique in that it has generated highly specific antibodies (known as monoclonal antibodies or Mabs) against ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and melanoma. The Company plans to generate Mabs against colorectal cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and pancreatic cancer.

The Company is now poised to begin the approval process for developing a screening test for ovarian cancer and a diagnostic test for aggressive prostate cancer. The technology would allow the Company to use its unique antibodies not only for detection of early stage, curable cancers, but also for imaging of the spread of cancer and developing highly specific treatments of the disease.

The acquisition represents the first significant step for the Company as it transitions from its current business into the exciting area of cancer detection and therapy.
