Tokyo, Japan, May 23, 2006 - (JCN) - Nisshin Pharma, a Nisshin Seifun group company, has announced that the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Research Council (AFFRC) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has adopted a project the company jointly submitted with GHEN.

In this project, the two companies and the Keio University School of Medicine will strive to develop functional foods for alleviating and preventing upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract lesions caused by Helicobacter pylori.

The three partners will fully leverage their strengths, namely, Nisshin Pharma's capabilities to develop health foods, GHEN's expertise in chicken antibodies (IgY), and Keio University's knowledge about Helicobacter pylori and mucosal lesions of the upper GI tract.

The government subsidized project will continue for three years from July 2006.
