Date:3/26/2009

COSTA MESA, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: OXBO) today announced that the company has added clinical trial sites in Israel for the planned Phase II dose escalation study of Oxycyte(R) in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Oxycyte is the company's perfluorocarbon (PFC) therapeutic oxygen carrier. The Israeli sites are in addition to those previously planned for Switzerland.

"Israeli physicians are excited to be able to participate in this study, especially as it relates to TBI as a result of blast injury," said Chris J. Stern, company chairman and CEO. "Unfortunately, they have had to deal with blast victims for some time, both military and civilian. They see this as something that can help them improve outcomes for the victims they treat. They also have one of the best medical systems in the world and are especially skilled in treating TBI. So the data they collect should be absolutely first rate," said Stern.

Plans call for up to six treatment sites in Israel, the same number as in Switzerland. They will also use the same clinical protocol. All trials will be supervised by the Israeli affiliate of PFC Pharma Focus AG, a Swiss-based contract research organization. The company expects to begin the clinical trials in the second quarter.
