and VA111913 for dysmenorrhoea, product candidates which directly target the causes of conditions that together affect many millions of people, are poorly treated and represent billion dollar markets. Vantia was spun out from Ferring Research Ltd in 2008 and its pipeline is driven by the proven small molecule drug discovery and development capabilities of that unit and Vantia's experienced management team. Vantia's strategy is to develop candidates to Phase II proof-of-concept and then commercialise through partnerships. The Company is well-funded and backed by specialist life science investors MVM Life Science Partners, SV Life Sciences and Novo A/S.

About VA106483 and nocturia:

VA106483 is a novel small molecule drug candidate in Phase II trials to treat nocturia, a common condition that causes sufferers to wake frequently during the night in order to urinate, thus interrupting sleep. VA106483 acts directly in the collecting ducts of the kidney by binding to vasopressin 2 receptors, decreasing urine volume. Clinical data indicate that VA106483 is generally well tolerated and an effective anti-diuretic that increases urine concentration and reduces urine output.

Vantia's initial indication for VA106483 is nocturia. A Phase II clinical programme has been designed and trials are underway, with initial results expected mid 2009.

Nocturia is commonly associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) where it is estimated to affect up to 70% of BPH patients. With estimates putting the number of BPH/nocturia sufferers at 55 million in the seven largest markets world wide, and only 10% of these believed to be receiving any kind of treatment, it is a clear area of unmet medical need and estimated to be worth in excess of US$500m per annum. This market opportunity presents only part of
