Cyplasin Biomedical Ltd. Announces Results of Second Animal Efficacy Study

    CYPL: OTCBB, Frankfurt Exchange WKN:XYIA

    EDMONTON, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Cyplasin Biomedical Ltd (CBL) announces the
results from the second animal efficacy study of its lead product
Cyplasin-SC(TM). The second study of Cyplasin-SC(TM) was intended to be
performed as before where mice with a suppressed immune system were given
human melanoma cells in order to create melanoma tumors in the mice. These
melanoma tumors were allowed to grow to a sufficient size to allow for
repeated microinjection of Cyplasin-SC at or near the tumor site. After a
specified period of time the tumors were analyzed to determine if the
Cyplasin-SC has retarded or stopped the growth of the tumor.
    "Our first study confirmed a definitive correlation with the amount of
Cyplasin-SC(TM) being given versus a reduced tumor size. The second study did
not give the same clear positive results as the previous efficacy study as
data showed variable results with respect to the tumor size reduction" stated
Professor Petzelt CSO of the Company. He further stated "We have taken time to
understand these results and believe they may be related to certain variables
introduced unintentionally into the execution of the study which we need to
better control before further experiments using a purified Cyplasin can be
    Cyplasin-SC(TM) is being developed for use as an anticancer therapeutic
drug for melanoma and skin cancer.

affects more than 2.4 million people worldwide with 62,000 new cases being
