ImaSight Announces Patent Filing and Initiation of Corporate Negotiations



    GATINEAU, QC, Aug. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - ImaSight Corp. (IAS:TSX-V) announced
today that its Liponex division has filed for patent protection of a novel
discovery related to its cardiovascular technology and initiated discussions
with three companies that have expressed an interest in acquiring the Liponex
technology.
    Chief Scientist Dr. Daniel Sparks explains that "by uniquely regulating
ATP synthase and nuclear factor kappa B, the Liponex molecules show the
potential to impact cardiovascular disease and raise HDL (good cholesterol)
levels even higher than that shown through the previous Liponex clinical
trials. We have also shown that these novel therapeutics have significant
anti-inflammatory activity and impact specific pathways that may be important
for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease."
    "While the corporate discussions are in the very early stages", said John
Brooks CEO of ImaSight, "we feel that this new discovery will increase their
interest as we seek to enhance shareholder value." In addition, Liponex
intends to work with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute to seek grant
funding to explore the applications to anti-inflammatory therapeutics.
