QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Atrium Innovations Inc. (TSX: ATB), a
leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of science-based and
professionally supported products for the Health and Nutrition industry, today
announced various initiatives to support the development of its Wobenzym(R)
brand in Germany.
Atrium announces that Mucos Pharma, a subsidiary of Atrium, has initiated
the phase out of Wobenzym(R) N in Germany earlier than initially anticipated.

Wobenzym(R) P, a natural enzyme-based product with an active OTC drug
registration. Wobenzym(R) P will be commercialized like its predecessor,
Wobenzym(R) N, as systemic enzyme therapy. As planned, Mucos Pharma intends to
launch a new formulation of Wobenzym(R) to be sold as a food supplement in
Germany and other Western European countries in early 2010.
