Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Inc. Signs Supply Agreement for Clinical-Grade Oxycyte for Clinical Trials and Future Needs

COSTA MESA, Calif., April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oxygen Biotherapeutics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: OXBO) today announced it has reached a development and commercial supply agreement with Hospira Inc.'s One 2 One(R) Global Pharmaceutical Services business unit to manufacture clinical-grade Oxycyte(R). Oxycyte is the company's perfluorocarbon (PFC) therapeutic oxygen carrier. Oxycyte will be manufactured at Hospira's Clayton, North Carolina, facility which specializes in emulsion technology.

Hospira will formulate, fill, finish and label Oxycyte to meet clinical good manufacturing practice (GMP) standards required for use of drugs in human patients. The amount of Oxycyte supplied by Hospira will be sufficient to meet any expected demand for the foreseeable future.

"This agreement connects us to a first-tier contract manufacturer and superbly reliable supplier who will provide us with all the Oxycyte we need to grow the company. As I've previously stated, our strategy is to license marketing rights for individual indications, yet always control the supply of our compound and be able to profit from sales of Oxycyte to licensees," said Chris J. Stern, company chairman and CEO.

The companies are not disclosing the financial terms of the supply agreement.
