***PKTX..ProtoKinetix Ready to Ship AAGP® to the University of Alberta for the Continuation of Phase 1 Human Trials

Marietta, Ohio, March 24, 2020

ProtoKinetix, Incorporated ( (the "Company" or "ProtoKinetix") (OTCQB: PKTX), a clinical-stage biomedical company, today announced an update to the Press Release of January 24, 2020.

...We have now completed the sterilization, quality assurance, labeling of the AAGP® (PKX-001) and are ready to ship the final product to the University of Alberta upon receipt of the NOL from Health Canada for the continuation of the Phase 1 clinical trials.

...PKX-001 is the designation given to the lead drug product molecule of the AAGP® family. Islet cell transplants are well recognized as a viable and effective treatment for Type-1 diabetes. The PKX-001 study will treat islet cells prior to transplantation into human test subjects. The clinical trials primary objective is the establishment of patient safety. The study will also be making observations related to indications of protection from tacrolimus toxicity and enhanced engraftment survival of the transplanted cells. The trial follows extensive preclinical evaluation in experimental models (to learn more, refer to this link: Diabetes).

...The trial is being led by Dr. James Shapiro, MD, PhD, FRCSC, MSM FCAHS, AHS Director of Clinical Islet and Living Donor Liver Transplant Programs, Canada Research Chair in Transplant Surgery and Regenerative Medicine, Professor of Surgery, Medicine and Surgical Oncology, University of Alberta.

COVID-19 Information as Applicable to ProtoKinetix

...In December 2019, the 2019 novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”) surfaced in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization declared a global emergency on January 30, 2020, with respect to the outbreak and several countries, including the United States, Japan and Australia have initiated travel restrictions to and from China. The impacts of the outbreak are unknown and rapidly evolving.

...Although we rely on third-party suppliers and manufacturers in China to produce AAGP® for testing, we believe we have sufficient quantities to last the Company for the next two years. Nevertheless, this outbreak has resulted in the extended shutdown of certain businesses, which may in turn result in disruptions or delays to our supply chain and restrictions on the export or shipment of our products.

...Further, we cannot predict the availability of our scientists to continue testing or whether the trials can be completed. A widespread health crisis could adversely affect the global economy, resulting in an economic downturn that could impact demand for our products.

...To date the outbreak has not had a material adverse impact on our operations. However, the future impact of the outbreak is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted and there is no assurance that the outbreak will not have a material adverse impact on the future results of the Company. The extent of the impact, if any, will depend on future developments, including actions taken to contain COVID-19.
