DelSite Announces Intention to License Manapol® Manufacturing Rights, Fields of Use and Territories

Manapol® Only Raw Material From Aloe Vera L. With DSHEA Claims

Manapol® Used in Powders, Capsules, Tablets and Drinks

Manapol® Used by Clinicians to Support Better Health

No Current Exclusive License Agreements

IRVING, TX--(Marketwire - February 18, 2009) - DelSite, Inc (OTCBB: DSII) today announced that in order to protect its proprietary raw material Manapol® from cheap, ineffective, foreign raw materials, it has initiated a licensing program for its proprietary raw materials including Manapol®. There are currently no agreements that preclude the broad and lawful licensing of these products.

Manapol® is a biologic raw material produced as a "product by process" which ensures quality and consistency. Manapol® is used in DelSite's AloeCeuticals® product line. Manapol® is also used to fortify various nutraceutical drinks made from fresh aloe gel.

Manapol® raw material carries the DSHEA claim of "enhances the immune system." This claim is based on human clinical trials. Other clinical trials of Manapol® raw material have provided DSHEA claims on digestion and cholesterol maintenance.

A DelSite spokesperson said, "The widely held perception that one company has the exclusive right to market Manapol® is categorically not true, as is the notion that potential competitors of that company would be subject to injunctions or law suits if they were to market a product containing Manapol® after obtaining a license from DelSite. All intellectual property related to Manapol® is owned by DelSite. There are no current exclusive licensing agreements for Manapol® raw material or for the trademark Manapol®. Our business model has changed. Going forward we will license for single or multiple fields of use, for single or multiple DSHEA claims, for manufacturing or use in individual countries or territories, or for single product lines like drinks or multiple dosage forms."

Clinicians in some African countries are using pure Manapol® powder to enhance immune function in patients with impaired immune systems.

The spokesperson added that "other DelSite 'product by process' raw materials such as Acemannan Hydrogel™ for wound healing and dental care, HydroPol™ for cosmetic and nutraceutical use, VeraPol™ for nutraceutical, as well as Acemannan Immunostimulant™, a USDA approved biologic for the treatment of certain cancers in cats and dogs, will also be licensed."
