Date:2/26/2008

TORONTO, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - ARIUS Research Inc., (TSX: ARI), a biotechnology company discovering and developing the next wave of antibody therapeutics, today announced that five abstracts have been selected for presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting held from April 12-16, 2008 in San Diego, California. The Company will deliver presentations that will disclose new findings about its CD44, TROP-2, CD59, and CD9 antibody programs.

"The inclusion of five ARIUS abstracts in this conference is a significant achievement, demonstrating the scientific community's interest in our programs and the high quality of our research," said Dr. David Young, President and CEO. "Among these abstracts are findings from our cancer stem cell programs targeting CD44 and CD9. This is an exciting new area of cancer research and as we prepare our CD44 antibody to enter human clinical trials this year, we believe we will have one of the only novel cancer stem cell drugs entering clinical trials in the near-term."

The following ARIUS' abstracts will be presented:
