ProMetic Raises $ 6 Million

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA --(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2007) - Not for Distribution in the United States or Through U.S. Newswire Services

ProMetic Life Sciences Inc. (TSX:PLI) ("ProMetic") announces that it has received share purchase offers from U.S. institutional investors and therefore will file two Supplements (the "Supplements") to a short form base shelf Prospectus of ProMetic that was previously filed on November 3, 2006 (the "Prospectus").

"It is important for ProMetic to complete this financing transaction despite poor market conditions. This will allow ProMetic to fund its revenue growth and to better execute on its business development opportunities," comments Stephane Archambault, Vice-President, Finance of ProMetic.

The initial Supplement is an amended and restated version of the third Supplement previously filed on August 13, 2007, and qualifies the distribution of 11,607,143 Subordinate Shares of the Corporation ("Subordinate Shares") at a price per Subordinate Share of $0.35. In the case of this Supplement, the Subordinate Shares will be issued under an Agency Agreement between Paradigm Capital Inc. (the "Agent") and ProMetic (the "Brokered Offering").

The other Supplement is a fourth Supplement to the Prospectus that qualifies the distribution of 5,535,714 Subordinate Shares of the Corporation at a price per Subordinate Share of $0.35. Those Subordinate Shares are issued directly to U.S. institutional investors.

Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Enthrust Financial Services, Inc. (OTCBB:EFSV), is participating in this offering as a financial advisor to ProMetic. In addition, ProMetic has granted to the Agent an over-allotment option which allows the Agent to acquire a number of Subordinate Shares equal to 15 percent of the Subordinate Shares sold under this Brokered Offering.

Closing of the Brokered Offering is scheduled to take place on or about September 11, 2007 and is subject to the receipt of all regulatory approvals including that of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
