FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- Symbollon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB: SYMBA) announced the launch of a new web site, www.MyBreastPain.com, to increase awareness of breast pain and tenderness associated with fibrocystic breast disease. The new web site will provide detailed information regarding the condition and allow women suffering from the condition to self assess their symptoms for possible participation in Symbollon's ongoing Phase III study evaluating IoGen for the treatment of breast pain associated with fibrocystic breast disease.

Paul Desjourdy, President and CEO of Symbollon Pharmaceuticals, stated, "That the new web site should be a valuable tool for women throughout the country providing educational information to assess their condition.
