 ERICKSON NAMED CEO OF TELIOS PHARMACEUTICALS
 SAN DIEGO, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Telios Pharmaceuticals


Inc. today announced the promotion of Robert J. Erickson, Ph.D. to president and chief executive officer from president and chief operating officer.
 Theodor H. Heinrichs will continue as chairman of the board of the San Diego-based company.
 "Dr. Erickson's promotion reflects the board's vote of confidence in his business leadership and scientific judgment toward guiding Telios Pharmaceuticals through our next period of growth," said Heinrichs.
 Erickson joined Telios Pharmaceuticals in 1987, several months after the company's founding. He has more than 20 years' experience in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Prior to joining the company, he was senior vice president of research and development at Cooper Laboratories Inc. He also served as vice president and technical director of Integrated Genetics, and vice president of research and development for Miles Laboratories' biotechnology group. Erickson is a director of Canji Inc. and UniSyn Fibertec Corp.
 Founded in 1987, Telios Pharmaceuticals is developing therapeutic products based on the company's matrix-peptide technology. Studies by its scientists have shown that the extracellular matrix -- a network of molecules that surrounds all cells in the body -- is critical to the way the body heals itself and combats disease. The company is developing a broad portfolio of products aimed at selectively modifying cell/matrix interactions for a wide range of clinical needs, including the treatment of critical fibrotic diseases, the control of platelet aggregation, dermal and opthalmic tissue regeneration, and biocompatible coatings of implants.
