ADVANCED POLYMER SYSTEMS CHAIRMAN DIES

 REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Polymer Systems (NASDAQ: APOS) sadly announces the passing of John Williford, its chairman of the board. Mr. Williford joined the company in July 1987 as APS' president and chief executive officer. In 1988, he became chairman, and in 1990 relinquished his daily operating responsibilities as president and chief executive officer. John was instrumental in guiding the company through its developmental years and established the broad technological base on which the company's present management is now building.
 Jack Meakem, APS' president and chief executive officer, notes that the company will miss John's creative abilities and warm personality. He was genuinely respected and loved by those who had the pleasure of working with him and his loss will be deeply felt by his friends and colleagues.
 Mr. Williford was also on the the boards of Chiron Corp., Akorn Inc. and Dick Clark Productions, and was nominated as Entrepreneur of the Year in 1992.
 Advanced Polymer Systems develops, manufactures and markets patented Microsponge delivery systems that allow for the controlled release of active ingredients in a programmed manner. The company is developing a wide range of products in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and personal care areas on its own and through strategic corporate alliances, and has begun marketing products in the latter two categories.
