About LipidViro Tech, Inc.

LipidViro Tech is a development-stage medical device company engaged in research and commercial development of a multi-therapeutic device-based platform to treat ischemic brain stroke and chronic heart failure, diseases with few viable treatment options and markets exceeding $20 billion annually in the U.S. and EU. Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide, responsible for 4.4 million deaths each year. Annually, more than 1.7 million people in the U.S. and EU become victims of stroke. The single approved therapeutic for ischemic brain stroke patients is Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA), but patients are eligible for tPA only during a three-hour window from time of stroke; tPA use after three hours causes bleeding in the brain which may prove fatal. Consequently, only 6% of U.S. stroke patients and less than 1% of EU stroke patients utilize tPA. Anecdotal data suggests d-OSAB may be an effective stroke therapeutic targeting the majority of patients untreated. During 2007, the Company is scheduled to commence a 100-patient Phase IIa study treating patients who have suffered an ischemic brain stroke to confirm these clinical findings.
