    About Pacific Therapeutics Ltd.

    Pacific Therapeutics Ltd. (PTL) is a Clinical stage Specialty
Pharmaceutical Company, poised to begin Clinical Trials. Incorporated in
September of 2005 under the British Columbia Company Act, the company is
focused on developing drugs for diseases of excessive scarring including
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and Liver Cirrhosis. Pacific's strategy
includes reformulating approved drugs to increase efficacy and patient
compliance. PTL is able to reduce the time to market because these drugs are
already approved and have established safety records. The first drug the
company is targeting is approved to treat Intermittent Claudication (IC) and
has also shown anti-fibrosis (anti-scarring) activity. A new formulation of
this drug could reach sales in excess of $120 million by 2010 and grow to
maximum annual sales of $700 million in IC. The second compound approved for a
different indication would be developed in parallel and could reach the market
in 2010. A future combination of these products for human fibrosis represents
a market opportunity in excess of $4 billion and opens the door to partnership
opportunities with large pharmaceutical companies.
