CTD Holdings to Institutionalize Niemann-Pick C Efforts

HIGH SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - June 8, 2009) - CTD Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CTDH) (FRANKFURT: CDJ) announces the creation of an Ameliorative Therapies department within its wholly owned subsidiary, CTD Inc. This department, through the use of existing staff and independent consultants, will oversee the collection, collation and analysis of data on the ameliorative uses of Cyclo™ coming from existing and new compassionate use trials around the world.

CTDH is currently applying for Trademark protection for Cyclo™, a new product line to be used exclusively for research and compassionate use in conjunction with dysfunctional cholesterol metabolism ailments and diseases. Currently, the product is being used under an FDA approved compassionate use treatment for Niemann-Pick C patients.

"The Addi and Cassi Hempel (see compassionate use trial with Cyclo™ has initiated worldwide contacts from physicians treating Niemann-Pick C patients in the US, India, Lebanon, Spain, Japan, and China. Additionally, the medical research community in the US and England, specializing in cholesterol metabolism, are ordering Trappsol® (CTD's branded CDs) radiolabelled Cyclo™," stated Mr. C.E. Strattan (Pres/CEO). "It appears that Cyclo™'s role in dysfunctional cholesterol metabolism has come to the attention of some very qualified medical research faculties."

Dysfunctional cholesterol metabolism has been implicated in the etiology of Adult and Childhood Alzheimer's, HIV Aids, Coronary Artery Disease, and Diabetes. "Creating the conduit for the efficient collection of the compassionate use data will expedite routine use of Cyclo™ in ameliorative scenarios," promises Mr. Strattan.
