Caprion Pharmaceuticals Announces Biomarker Research Collaboration With Boehringer Ingelheim

Montreal, Canada - July 12, 2005 - Caprion Pharmaceuticals today announced a research collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim to identify biomarkers of metabolic and inflammatory disease using Caprion's CellCartaTM proteomics discovery platform. Caprion will identify pharmacodynamic markers in plasma resulting from the administration of different pre-clinical pharmaceutical compounds.

"This collaboration represents yet another important disease biomarker discovery program for Caprion," noted Dr. Daniel Chelsky, Chief Scientific Officer of Caprion Pharmaceuticals. "This study reflects how Caprion's biomarker discovery capability addresses many key pharmaceutical needs, including predicting efficacy and safety and managing treatment progression."

In addition to this latest relationship, Caprion has in 2005 announced biomarker collaborations with leading biopharmaceutical companies to apply proteomics to more efficient and effective trial design. Other partners announced to date this year include Pfizer and Wyeth, who recently expanded their collaboration with Caprion to include applications in two clinical trials.
