    "We are pleased with results in the second quarter and by initial
customer adoption of AxcelRx Live 5.0, Aptilon's next generation bundle of
web-based sales and marketing services featuring live sales
representative-physician video detail sessions that was launched during the
period" said Denis Martineau, President of Aptilon. Following the close of the

enterprise commitment with Merck & Co. ("Merck") that expands its contract for
AxcelRx Live video detailing as a component of Merck's alternative sales

strengthening its available cash and working capital, Aptilon can now more
rapidly expand the ReachNet recruiting network and thereby increase
availability of sales and marketing interactions to interested, targeted
physicians," Martineau expanded.
