GenSci Expects Topical Molgramostim Gel Approval in 2007.

SHANGHAI, China -- GeneScience Pharmaceuticals Co., Ltd. (GenSci) announced today that the company's new drug, Genfulin[TM], a topical gel indicated for the treatment of wound healing, is expected to get approval by China's SFDA in early 2007.

The active ingredient in Genfulin[TM] is molgramostim (human granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor, hGM-CSF (rDNA origin). GenSci has been the top biopharmaceutical manufacturer for Jintropin(TM) somatropin (human growth hormone, hGH), Scimax(TM) filgrastim (human granulocyte colony stimulating factor, G-CSF) and molgramostim in China.

"With the unique innovative formulation, Genfulin[TM] marks the major step in GenSci's transition to manufacturing biological supergenerics," according to Dr. Lei Jin, CEO of GenSci.

Based on the current indications of molgramostim, Genfulin[TM] gel was designed for new indications in wound healing with its novel and unique formulation. Most importantly, clinical trials of Genfulin[TM] have confirmed its efficacy in actively accelerating wound healing, increasing wound tearing-resistance, and reducing, even avoiding, scar proliferation in burn patients. Similar effects have also been observed in chronic ulcer patients, including those with diabetic foot ulcer. Overall, Genfulin[TM] gel has been shown to improve the quality of wound healing significantly with a good safety profile, according to results obtained from clinical trials.

Genfulin[TM] gel is applied to wound areas directly in patients with burn, scald or ulcer to speed up the healing. GenSci holds a patent for Genfulin[TM], which was developed with GenSci's proprietary technology platform by scientists at GenSci.

Genfulin, Jintropin, Scimax are trademarks of GenSci.
