American Stock Exchange Accepts ONI BioPharma Inc.'s Revised Plan of Compliance

ALACHUA, FL--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - ONI BioPharma Inc., formerly Oragenics, Inc. (AMEX: ONI), a biopharmaceutical company, today announced it had received notice that the American Stock Exchange ("AMEX") has accepted the Company's Revised Plan of Compliance to regain compliance with the applicable listing standards by October 27, 2008.

As previously announced, on May 14, 2008, the Company received notice from the AMEX Staff indicating that the Company is below certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards due to the Company's shareholders' equity of less than $4,000,000 and losses from continuing operations and net losses in three of its four most recent fiscal years. Subsequently, the Company submitted a revised plan of compliance. On June 23, 2008, AMEX notified the Company that it accepted the Company's Revised Plan of Compliance and that the Company's extension to regain compliance with the continued listing standards would remain October 27, 2008, at which time the Company plans to be in full compliance with AMEX listing requirements.

The Company will be subject to periodic review by Exchange Staff during the extension period.

Stanley B. Stein, the Company's President and CEO, stated, "We are tremendously pleased with AMEX's acceptance of our Revised Plan of Compliance and look forward to a reinvigorated, healthy relationship with AMEX. We intend to accelerate the commercialization of our core technologies in conformity with our Revised Plan, so that we will achieve and surpass relevant Exchange standards in the future."
