CZ Biomed Corp. Research for Cancer Cure -- RVLYSIN®

CARSON CITY, NV and TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  CZ BioMed Corp. announced today they have successfully developed a new class of treatment in the fight against cancer using oncolytic virotherapy.

RVLYSIN® is the invention of CZ BioMed Corp. RVLYSIN® is a novel, genetically engineered oncolytic virus that selectively kills tumor cells, but does not kill off the normal or good cells within the body. RVLYSIN® is vastly safer to use as compared to traditional chemo -- or radio-therapy of tumors, with a much higher quality of life during treatment.

This new product is well-tolerated in all experimental mice to date. RVLYSIN® specifically localizes to the tumor upon administration, and does not spread to other tissues or organs. Thus, this procedure is not harming areas of the body that are not currently in danger of the cancer.

During this process, the primary replication of oncolytic viruses within the cancer cells will directly kill the targeted tumor cells. The resultant explosion of the cancer cell activates a cascade of anti-tumor immune responses including interferon release. These payloads act in concert with the primary oncolysis mechanism to eradicate the cancer.

There are currently more than 100 different types of cancer. Even though there have been many advancements for the cure, there are still terrifying projected numbers. *An an astounding 1,529,560 new cancer cases are projected with an estimated 569,490 people dying from cancer in the United States in 2010 alone. As a specific example, an estimated 192,370 patients were newly diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States in 2009, and about 40,170 died of the disease. Although advancements in the treatment of breast cancer have lead to an improvement in outcomes, the 5-year survival rates for those diagnosed with regional and metastatic diseases are 80% and 26% respectively. Approximately 24% to 30% of women who have no lymph-node involvement at the time of diagnosis will relapse; and the relapse rate for node-positive women is 50% - 60%. Therefore, a safe and effective treatment remains a critical need.

One of our products, BRVLYSIN was found to effectively kill different types of breast cancer cells. Also, BRVLYSIN induces tumor growth regression in vivo, indicating that BRVLYSIN functions as a novel bio-drug fighting against breast cancer.

 "We are very excited to reach this milestone today. Our hard work and dedication to cure cancer is another step closer. This breakthrough will allow patients to recover faster, will not destroy the healthy cells and is the next step to the cure of this deadly disease. We hope that in the future our finding will join the elite class of cancer drugs developed by Roche; Eli Lilly; Amgen Inc.; Dendreon Corp.; Genzyme Corp. and many other companies in this relentless pursuit to fight against cancer."
Calvin Cao, Chairman/CEO/President of CZ BioMed Corp.


This project is ready to go to Phase 1 of clinical trial studies. We currently have four (4) patents pending on these key technologies. With that in place, the company is entering a critical period and we are presently looking for key partners to take this project to the next level. We believe we could transform the traditional biological drug development process utilizing a lean approach to generating clinical proof- of -concept (POC) data via a 100% outsourcing model.

Calvin Cao:
Mr. Cao is the founder of CZ BioMed Corp. As an inventor, innovator and bio-entrepreneur, his strategy and commitment is to make CZ Biomed the dominant global company for the discovery and development of a new class of high-tech biological products for the treatment of a wide variety of human cancers.

In 2008, as a chairman and co-founder of Stem Cell Therapy International Corp. he engineered the recent merger of Stem Cell Therapy International and Histostem of S. Korea. Histostem is one of the largest fully accredited cord blood banks in the world, with more than 80,000 cord blood units for use in research and treatments. The successful merger has formed one of the first fully merged Pacific Rim stem cell companies and cord blood repositories with a U.S. entity Amstem Corp.
