News for 'NRGX' - (Neurologix Receives FDA Clearance to Initiate Phase 2 Trial in Parkinson's Disease Subjects Multicenter U.S. Clinical Study to Initiate in Q2 2008)


FORT LEE, N.J., Mar 27, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB:NRGX) a biotechnology company engaged in the research and development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has allowed the company to proceed with its planned Phase 2 clinical trial in subjects with advanced Parkinson's disease.
The company has developed a novel gene transfer approach to treating patients with Parkinson's disease who no longer receive adequate benefit from current drug therapies.

"Given the current cautious regulatory environment surrounding gene therapy in general, receiving the go-ahead from FDA to begin our Phase 2 study represents the crossing of a major hurdle for the development of our gene transfer procedure for Parkinson's disease," said John Mordock, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We have been contracting with clinical sites and reviewing prospective trial subjects for this study, which should begin patient enrollment during the second quarter."

The goal of the Phase 2 clinical trial is to further determine safety of the Neurologix gene transfer therapy and to confirm the initial efficacy reported in the Company's Phase 1 clinical trial. The randomized, blinded study will take place at up to ten centers across the United States, and will enroll approximately 44 subjects with advanced Parkinson's disease.

For additional information on the Neurologix completed Phase 1 clinical trial and the planned Phase 2 clinical trial in advanced Parkinson's disease, please visit http://www.clinicaltrials.gov.

About Neurologix's Gene Transfer Procedure for Parkinson's Disease

The Neurologix procedure delivers a gene (glutamic acid decarboxylase, or GAD) to the subthalamic nucleus of the brain, where it makes an inhibitory neurotransmitter called GABA that helps to quiet the abnormal brain activity that is correlated with motor deficits characterizing Parkinson's disease.
Results of the Phase 1 clinical trial showed that the Neurologix gene transfer procedure was both well tolerated and resulted in improved motor function and brain metabolism for patients with advanced Parkinson's disease over the course of the one-year trial. In December 2007, Neurologix received Fast Track Designation from FDA for the gene transfer procedure. This Fast Track designation does not assure the approval of any of Neurologix's clinical study protocols or the ultimate approval of any Biologics License Application that the company may submit for marketing approval. However, it may help expedite the development and FDA's review of this innovative treatment approach.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This news release includes certain statements of the Company that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and which are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements and other information relating to the Company are based upon the beliefs of management and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, or performance, as well as underlying assumptions and statements that are other than statements of historical fact. When used in this document, the words "expects," "promises," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "intends,"
"projects," "predicts," "believes," "may" or "should," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements reflect the current view of the Company's management with respect to future events. Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following:

-- The Company is still in the development stage and has not generated any revenues. From inception through December 31, 2007, it incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities of approximately $28.0 million and
$21.6 million, respectively. Management believes that the Company will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future. Because it may take years to develop, test and obtain regulatory approval for a gene-based therapy product before it can be sold, the Company likely will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, it may never be profitable and, if it does become profitable, it may be unable to sustain profitability.

-- At December 31, 2007, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $20.2 million, which management believes will be sufficient to fund the Company's operations through June 30, 2009.

Neurologix Initiates Recruitment for Phase 2 Parkinson's Disease Trial
Tuesday August 19, 8:00 am ET
Multicenter Study of Novel Gene Transfer Approach


FORT LEE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB:NRGX - News), a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, announced today that it has received Institutional Review Board approvals to begin recruiting and enrolling participants for its Phase 2 clinical trial of the company’s gene transfer approach to the treatment of advanced Parkinson’s disease. The study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel non-dopaminergic approach for reestablishing motor function in Parkinson’s patients who are sub-optimally responsive to drug therapies.
ADVERTISEMENT


The randomized, double-blind, sham-procedure controlled trial will involve up to 10 leading academic research centers across the United States, with the first sites being Massachusetts General Hospital and Wake Forest University Health Sciences. Neurologix expects to enroll a total of 40 study participants in the trial. Twenty participants will receive an infusion of the gene-based treatment bilaterally via a catheter temporarily placed in each subthalamic nucleus (STN) (a deep brain structure that is the main target of surgery to treat Parkinson’s disease) by stereotactic surgery. The other 20 participants will receive sterile saline solution into a partial thickness burr hole made into the skull, with no brain infusion.

Study participants will be assessed for treatment effects by standardized Parkinson’s disease ratings at multiple time points post-procedure. The primary endpoint for the study will be a clinical assessment of motor function at 6 months using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). All participants in the study will also be monitored for safety for 12 months following the gene transfer procedure. If the primary endpoint is met following the analysis of 6 month data, then the sham-control participants will be offered the opportunity to crossover into an open label study of the Neurologix gene transfer therapy if they continue to meet all entry, medical and surgical criteria.

“Parkinson’s disease is a devastating illness for those patients whose symptoms are no longer well controlled by medication alone,” said John Mordock, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix. “We are very pleased to initiate this study, which may offer a new therapeutic option that is potentially disease modifying and more consistent with the brain’s normal metabolic activity.”

For details about participating in the clinical trial, please visit http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00643890?term=neurologix&rank=1.

About the Neurologix Gene Transfer Approach to Parkinson’s Disease

In Parkinson’s disease, patients lose dopamine-producing brain cells, which results in substantial reductions in the activity and amount of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that helps ‘quiet’ excessive neuronal firing. This reduction in GABA causes a dysfunction in brain circuitry responsible for coordinating movement. GABA is made by a gene called glutamic acid decarboxylase, or GAD.

Neurologix’s gene transfer approach to Parkinson’s disease seeks to restore GABA -- and thus improve the patient’s motor control -- by inserting the GAD gene back into an area of the brain called the subthalamic nucleus, a key regulatory center for movement.

News for 'NRGX' - (Neurologix Licenses Exclusive Rights to Key Gene from Aegera Therapeutics for Use as a Potential Gene Therapy for Huntington's Disease)


FORT LEE, N.J., Sep 03, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB: NRGX), a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, and Aegera Therapeutics, a private clinical stage company focused on oncology and neuropathic pain, announced today their execution of an exclusive license agreement. Pursuant to the agreement, Neurologix has exclusively licensed the worldwide rights, excluding China, for the use of the XIAP gene (x-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein) for therapeutic or prophylactic purposes in the treatment of Huntington's disease.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Huntington's disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disease that results in uncontrolled movements, deterioration of mental abilities and, ultimately, death. Neuronal cell death associated with the disease is believed to occur via apoptosis, the process of programmed cell death. XIAP is a potent inhibitor of caspases, a family of proteins that are key executors of apoptosis, and therefore it may offer utility as a therapeutic neuroprotective factor. In preclinical studies, Neurologix scientists have demonstrated that a mutated form of the XIAP gene delivered by an adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector can not only slow the disease, but actually normalize motor deficits associated with the disease when introduced into the brain of mice harboring the same mutation found in humans using standard neurosurgical techniques.

"Obtaining the rights to this intellectual property represents an important step in developing a novel therapeutic product for the treatment of this terrible and currently untreatable disease," said John Mordock, President & Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix. "We have been very encouraged by our preclinical results to date, which demonstrate that XIAP may not only modify the progression of cell death, but may potentially reverse neuronal dysfunction as well.

Mr. Mordock added, "We are looking forward to moving this indication toward human clinical trials in patients affected by Huntington's disease. Having successfully completed a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of Parkinson's disease with our AAV-GAD, we are now commencing a Phase 2 clinical trial for that product. Our progress in the Huntington's indication demonstrates the potential of our AAV-mediated gene transfer approach as a common delivery platform for the treatment of various CNS movement disorders and neurodegenerative diseases."

Dr. Michael Berendt, Aegera President and CEO, stated, "We are very excited about the possibility of a new treatment for this devastating disease, and continue to believe that the Inhibitor of Apoptosis protein family, discovered by our founders, plays a central role in multiple disease indications. This licensing transaction with Neurologix highlights our strategy of advancing our own clinical and discovery programs, in our core areas of oncology, neuropathic pain and auto-immune/inflammatory diseases, while working with key strategic partners in other areas to accelerate the delivery of new therapeutics and diagnostics for a wide range of human diseases."

About Huntington's Disease

Huntington's disease, also known as Huntington's chorea, is a genetic neurodegenerative disease caused by a single defective gene on chromosome 4.
This leads to damage over time of the nerve cells in areas of the brain including the basal ganglia and cerebral cortex, and to the gradual onset of physical, mental and emotional changes. No cure for Huntington's disease currently exists, so symptoms are managed with various medications and supportive services. The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) estimates that at least 150,000 individuals are at risk of developing the disease; children with an affected parent have a 50% chance of inheriting the mutated gene responsible for the condition.

About Aegera Therapeutics Inc.

Aegera Therapeutics is a clinical stage biotechnology company focused on developing drugs that control apoptosis to address major unmet medical needs.
Aegera has three programs in clinical development:

-- AEG35156 targets the key anti-apoptotic protein XIAP, and is currently in multiple Phase II human clinical trials for the treatment of solid tumors and leukemia;

-- AEG40826/HGS1029 is a novel, small molecule inhibitor of multiple IAP family members, in clinical development for oncology.

-- AEG33773 is a novel, orally bioavailable small molecule developed to treat painful diabetic neuropathy and is in Phase I clinical studies.

The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) estimates that at least 150,000 individuals are at risk of developing the disease; children with an affected parent have a 50% chance of inheriting the mutated gene responsible for the condition.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This news release includes certain statements of Neurologix that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and which are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements and other information relating to the Company are based upon the beliefs of management and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, or performance, as well as underlying assumptions and statements that are other than statements of historical fact. When used in this document, the words "expects," "promises," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "intends,"
"projects," "predicts," "believes," "may" or "should," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements reflect the current view of the Company's management with respect to future events. Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following:

-- The Company is still in the development stage and has not generated any revenues. From inception through June 30, 2008, it incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities of approximately $31.3 million and $25.0 million, respectively. Management believes that the Company will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future. Because it may take years to develop, test and obtain regulatory approval for a gene-based therapy product before it can be sold, the Company likely will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, it may never be profitable and, if it does become profitable, it may be unable to sustain profitability.

-- At June 30, 2008, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately
$21.6 million, which management believes will be sufficient to fund the Company's operations through at least December 31, 2009. The Company does not know whether additional financing will be available when needed, or if available, will be on acceptable or favorable terms to it or its stockholders.

-- The Company will need to conduct future clinical trials for treatment of Parkinson's disease using the Company's NLX technology. If the trials prove unsuccessful, future operations and the potential for profitability will be materially adversely affected and the business may not succeed.

-- There is no assurance as to when, or if, the Company will be able to successfully complete the required preclinical testing of its gene therapy for the treatment of Huntington's disease to enable it to file an Investigational New Drug Application with the FDA for permission to begin a Phase 1 clinical trial or that, if filed, such permission will be granted.

Other factors and assumptions not identified above could also cause the actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Additional information regarding factors that could cause results to differ materially from management's expectations is found in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-KSB.
Although the Company believes these assumptions are reasonable, no assurance can be given that they will prove correct. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Further, the Company undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements after the date they are made or to conform the statements to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.

News for 'NRGX' - (Neurologix Licenses Exclusive Rights to Key Gene from Aegera Therapeutics for Use as a Potential Gene Therapy for Huntington's Disease)


FORT LEE, N.J., Sep 03, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB: NRGX), a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, and Aegera Therapeutics, a private clinical stage company focused on oncology and neuropathic pain, announced today their execution of an exclusive license agreement. Pursuant to the agreement, Neurologix has exclusively licensed the worldwide rights, excluding China, for the use of the XIAP gene (x-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein) for therapeutic or prophylactic purposes in the treatment of Huntington's disease.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Huntington's disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disease that results in uncontrolled movements, deterioration of mental abilities and, ultimately, death. Neuronal cell death associated with the disease is believed to occur via apoptosis, the process of programmed cell death. XIAP is a potent inhibitor of caspases, a family of proteins that are key executors of apoptosis, and therefore it may offer utility as a therapeutic neuroprotective factor. In preclinical studies, Neurologix scientists have demonstrated that a mutated form of the XIAP gene delivered by an adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector can not only slow the disease, but actually normalize motor deficits associated with the disease when introduced into the brain of mice harboring the same mutation found in humans using standard neurosurgical techniques.

"Obtaining the rights to this intellectual property represents an important step in developing a novel therapeutic product for the treatment of this terrible and currently untreatable disease," said John Mordock, President & Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix. "We have been very encouraged by our preclinical results to date, which demonstrate that XIAP may not only modify the progression of cell death, but may potentially reverse neuronal dysfunction as well.

Mr. Mordock added, "We are looking forward to moving this indication toward human clinical trials in patients affected by Huntington's disease. Having successfully completed a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of Parkinson's disease with our AAV-GAD, we are now commencing a Phase 2 clinical trial for that product. Our progress in the Huntington's indication demonstrates the potential of our AAV-mediated gene transfer approach as a common delivery platform for the treatment of various CNS movement disorders and neurodegenerative diseases."

Dr. Michael Berendt, Aegera President and CEO, stated, "We are very excited about the possibility of a new treatment for this devastating disease, and continue to believe that the Inhibitor of Apoptosis protein family, discovered by our founders, plays a central role in multiple disease indications. This licensing transaction with Neurologix highlights our strategy of advancing our own clinical and discovery programs, in our core areas of oncology, neuropathic pain and auto-immune/inflammatory diseases, while working with key strategic partners in other areas to accelerate the delivery of new therapeutics and diagnostics for a wide range of human diseases."

About Huntington's Disease

Huntington's disease, also known as Huntington's chorea, is a genetic neurodegenerative disease caused by a single defective gene on chromosome 4.
This leads to damage over time of the nerve cells in areas of the brain including the basal ganglia and cerebral cortex, and to the gradual onset of physical, mental and emotional changes. No cure for Huntington's disease currently exists, so symptoms are managed with various medications and supportive services. The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) estimates that at least 150,000 individuals are at risk of developing the disease; children with an affected parent have a 50% chance of inheriting the mutated gene responsible for the condition.

News for 'NRGX' - (Neurologix Commences its Phase 2 Clinical Trial of Novel Gene Transfer Approach for Treatment of Parkinson's Disease)


FORT LEE, N.J., Jan 21, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB:NRGX), a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, announced today that it has initiated its Phase 2 clinical trial for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease.
The first trial participants have undergone surgery at multiple institutions and additional subjects are currently being enrolled.

The purpose of the trial is to validate the safety and efficacy of Neurologix's gene transfer therapy, a novel non-dopaminergic approach to restore motor function in Parkinson's patients who are sub-optimally responsive to available drug therapy. Neurologix's approach is to reestablish the production of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), the major brain inhibitory neurotransmitter that helps "quiet" excessive neuronal firing and has been determined to be deficient in patients in the advanced stages of Parkinson's disease.

John E. Mordock, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix, stated, "Initiating this Phase 2 clinical trial represents a significant milestone. We expect to enroll 40 subjects across six to eight leading U.S. academic research centers, with completion of enrollment expected during the second half of 2009."

In Parkinson's disease there is degeneration of many cells in the central nervous system including those that produce dopamine, which leads to a downstream deficiency in GABA signaling in areas of the brain that regulate movement. Most current therapies and research approaches target dopamine. Mr.
Mordock commented, "In contrast, our preclinical and clinical research suggests that directly targeting GABA production rather than dopamine replacement may be a more effective way of improving brain function in late-stage Parkinson's disease while also avoiding the known therapeutic limitations and complications associated with the over-production of dopamine."

The Co-Chairmen of the trial Steering Committee are Dr. Andrew Feigin, Director of the Neu roscience Experimental Therapeutics Research Program at the Feinstein Institute of Medical Research of the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, and Dr. Peter LeWitt, a neurologist who directs the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Program at Henry Ford Hospital in Southfield, Michigan.

"Based on the encouraging functional and imaging results seen in the Phase 1 study of this innovative approach to improving Parkinson's disease, we are extremely excited to be part of this study," said Dr. Feigin.

Dr. LeWitt added, "The start of this clinical trial provides hope to the patient population which has had a longstanding need for new treatment options."

The scientific underpinnings of Neurologix's approach have undergone rigorous peer review resulting in highly cited articles in Nature Genetics and Science by the company's co-founders, Drs. Matthew During and Michael Kaplitt. Moreover, the current trial follows a succ essful Phase 1 study, as published in the Lancet and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA, in which 12 subjects completed the study showing no related serious adverse events and significant functional benefit with supportive imaging data.

Phase 2 Clinical Trial Design

As previously announced, 20 participants will receive an infusion of the gene-based treatment bilaterally via a catheter temporarily placed by stereotactic surgery in each participant's subthalamic nucleus (STN), a deep brain structure that is the main target of surgery to treat Parkinson's disease.
The other 20 participants will receive sterile saline solution into a partial thickness burr hole made into the skull, with no brain infusion. Trial participants will be assessed for treatment effects by standardized Parkinson's disease ratings at multiple time points post-procedure. The primary endpoint for the trial will be a clinical assessment of mot or function at 6 months using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). All participants in the trial will also be monitored for safety for 12 months following the gene transfer procedure. If the primary endpoint is met following the analysis of 6 month data, then the sham-control participants will be offered the opportunity to crossover into an open label study of the Neurologix gene transfer therapy if they continue to meet all entry, medical and surgical criteria.

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00643890?term=neurologix&rank=1. Details about trial participation are also available at http://www.pdtrials.org/en/browse/all/view/241.

About the Neurologix Gene Transfer Approach to Parkinson's Disease

In Parkinson's disease, patients lose dopamine-producing brain cells, resulting in substantial reductions in the activity and amount of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). This reduction in GABA causes a dysfunction in brain circuitry responsible for coordinating movement. GABA is made by a gene called glutamic acid decarboxylase, or GAD.

Neurologix's gene transfer approach to Parkinson's disease seeks to restore GABA
-- and thus improve the patient's motor control -- by inserting the GAD gene back into an area of the brain called the subthalamic nucleus, a key regulatory center for movement.

News for 'NRGX' - (Neurologix Announces Year End 2008 Results)


FORT LEE, N.J., Mar 26, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB:NRGX), a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative gene therapies for the brain and central nervous system, today announced its financial re sults for the year ended December 31, 2008.

For the year ended December 31, 2008, Neurologix reported a net loss of $6.3 million, as compared with a net loss of $6.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2007. The Company reported a net loss applicable to common stock for the year ended December 31, 2008 of $9.7 million, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share, as compared with a net loss applicable to common stock for the year ended December 31, 2007 of $13.8 million, or $0.51 per basic and diluted share. The net loss applicable to common stock for the year ended December 31, 2008, includes charges of $3.4 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, related to preferred stock dividends ($2.6 million) and beneficial conversion features
($0.8 million) in connection with the Company's Series C Convertible Preferred Stock and Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. The net loss applicable to common stock for the year ended December 31, 2007 included charges of $7.0 million, or $0.26 per basic and diluted share, related to induced conversion of preferred stock ($2.8 million), accretion of beneficial conversion features
($2.8 million) and preferred stock dividends ($1.4 million) in connection with the issuance of the Company's Series D Convertible Preferred Stock and amendments to the Company's outstanding Series C Convertible Preferred Stock.
The Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $18.9 million as of December 31, 2008.

In commenting on the Company's performance, John E. Mordock, President and Chief Executive Officer said, "Neurologix ended 2008 with the achievement of a significant clinical milestone, the initiation of the planned Phase 2 clinical trial of our gene transfer approach to advanced Parkinson's disease. We will assess each patient six months after the procedure to determine the effects of our experimental Parkinson's disease product on the patient's motor function, using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale. We are hopeful that the initial data from this one-year Phase 2 clinical trial will confirm and build upon the success that was demonstrated in our initial Phase 1 clinical trial.
The 12 subjects who completed the Phase 1 clinical trial showed no related serious adverse events and realized significant functional benefit that was supported by brain imaging data."

Mr. Mordock also noted that, during 2008, Neurologix expanded its intellectual property portfolio by licensing the exclusive rights to a gene that may have therapeutic or prophylactic uses in the treatment of Huntington's disease.
"Obtaining the right to this intellectual property represents an important step in the development of a novel therapeutic approach for the treatment of this disease. We are particularly encouraged by the neuroprotective potential of the gene. Over the coming month s, Neurologix will be further evaluating the opportunities for its gene transfer technology in Huntington's disease, as well as the potential use of this therapeutic approach in such other CNS diseases as depression and refractory epilepsy," he said.

"Given the current difficult economic climate, Neurologix has been prudent in its utilization of capital," Mr. Mordock further stated. "During 2008 we raised
$5 million, in addition to the $15 million we raised in late 2007, to ensure that we would have sufficient resources to complete our Phase 2 clinical trial for Parkinson's disease. Our primary focus in 2009 is the completion of this trial and, based upon our financial resources, we anticipate further development of our other indications."

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This news release includes certain statements of the Company that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and which are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigat ion Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements and other information relating to the Company are based upon the beliefs of management and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, or performance, as well as underlying assumptions and statements that are other than statements of historical fact. When used in this document, the words "expects," "promises," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "intends,"
"projects," "predicts," "believes," "may" or "should," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements reflect the current view of the Company's management with respect to future events. Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achiev ements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following:

-- The Company is still in the development stage and has not generated any revenues. From inception through December 31, 2008, it incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities of approximately $34.3 million and
$27.6 million, respectively. Management believes that the Company will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future. Because it may take years to develop, test and obtain regulatory approval for a gene-based therapy product before it can be sold, the Company likely will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the Company may never be profitable and, if it does become profitable, it may be unable to sustain profitability.

-- At December 31, 2008, the Company had cash and cash equiva lents of approximately $18.9 million, which management believes will be sufficient to fund the Company's operations through at least June 30, 2010. The Company does not know whether additional financing will be available when needed, or if available, will be on acceptable or favorable terms to it or its stockholders.

-- The Company will need to conduct future clinical trials for treatment of Parkinson's disease using the Company's NLX technology. If the trials prove unsuccessful, future operations and the potential for profitability will be materially adversely affected and the business may not succeed.

-- There is no assurance as to when, or if, the Company will be able to successfully complete the required preclinical testing of its gene therapy for the treatment of Huntington's disease to enable it to file an Investigational New Drug Application with the FDA for permission to begin a Phase 1 clinical trial or that, if filed, such permission will be granted.

-- There is no assurance as to when, or if, the Company will be able to successfully receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its Investigational New Drug Application to commence a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of epilepsy.

Other factors and assumptions not identified above could also cause the actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Additional information regarding factors that could cause results to differ materially from management's expectations is found in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
Although the Company believes these assumptions are reasonable, no assurance can be given that they will prove correct. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Further, the Company undertakes no obligation to up date forward-looking statements after the date they are made or to conform the statements to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.

New Parkinson’s Disease Clinical Trials Are Currently Enrolling Patients
Parkinson's disease clinical trials
The characteristic symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are caused by the degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. One development in current Parkinson’s research is looking at motor centers in the brain that do not receive enough of a compound called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

This investigational study is designed to determine if intracranial administration of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the enzyme that aids in the production of GABA, will help restore normal function in the brain and alleviate the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease.

This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study. Study participants will be selected randomly to receive either rAAV-GAD, a recombinant viral delivery vector that contains the gene that makes GAD, or sterile saline by infusion into brain cells using an investigational device via a stereotactic neurosurgery procedure. These study participants will receive the study drug or sterile saline, study-related monitoring, and care from study doctors at no cost.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release includes certain statements of the Company that may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and which are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements and other information relating to the Company are based upon the beliefs of management and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, or performance, as well as underlying assumptions and statements that are other than statements of historical fact. When used in this document, the words "expects," "promises," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "intends," "projects," "predicts," "believes," "may" or "should," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements reflect the current view of the Company's management with respect to future events. Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following:

-- The Company is still in the development stage and has not generated any revenues. From inception through September 30, 2009, it incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities of approximately $44.9 million and $34.5 million, respectively. Management believes that the Company will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future. Because it may take years to develop, test and obtain regulatory approval for a gene-based therapy product before it can be sold, the Company likely will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, it may never be profitable and, if it does become profitable, it may be unable to sustain profitability.

-- At September 30, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $11.8 million, which management believes will be sufficient to fund the Company's operations through at least September 30, 2010. The Company does not know whether additional financing will be available when needed, or if available, will be on acceptable or favorable terms to it or its stockholders. If the Company is unable to secure additional funding in the near future, its ability to continue as a going concern may be in doubt.

-- The Company will need to conduct future clinical trials for treatment of Parkinson's disease using the Company's NLX technology. If the trials prove unsuccessful, future operations and the potential for profitability will be materially adversely affected and the business may not succeed.

Other factors and assumptions not identified above could also cause the actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Additional information about factors that could cause results to differ materially from management's expectations is found in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Although the Company believes these assumptions are reasonable, no assurance can be given that they will prove correct. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Further, the Company undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements after the date they are made or to conform the statements to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.

FORT LEE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neurologix, Inc. (OTCBB:NRGX) today announced that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (US PTO) for intellectual property central to the company’s approach to the treatment of epilepsy. The patent allowance specifically refers to Neurologix’s patent application, “Methods and Compositions for the Treatment of Neurological Disease,” which covers the treatment of seizures associated with temporal lobe epilepsy by direct administration into the brain’s temporal lobe of an AAV vector encoding Neuropeptide Y (NPY). Neurologix is a biotechnology company engaged in the development of innovative therapies for the brain and central nervous system, including Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, Huntington’s disease and other disorders.

“This Notice of Allowance further validates the innovative nature of Neurologix’s proprietary technology platform and approach to the treatment of central nervous system diseases, and underscores our company’s leadership in the emerging field of Molecular Medicine for neurological disorders,” said Martin J. Kaplitt, M.D., Neurologix’s Chairman of the Board. “In the case of refractory temporal lobe epilepsy, we hope to improve on the effectiveness and reduce the invasiveness of current surgical treatments by delivering the human NPY gene directly to the hippocampus of the brain, thereby inhibiting seizures without the need for surgical resection of functional brain tissue, the current standard of care for this disease. Temporal lobe epilepsy, affecting over 1 million patients in the United States, represents a major unmet medical need, where traditional pharmacological therapies have proven unsatisfactory. This strategy builds on the experience Neurologix has gained through our similar gene transfer approach to treating Parkinson’s disease, where we are now awaiting efficacy results from our Phase 2 trial around mid-year.”

Preclinical results published in the Journal of Neuroscience, Epilepsia, Experimental Neurology (2004, 2006, 2009) and the May 2008 issue of Brain have consistently demonstrated the efficacy of Neurologix’s therapeutic approach to temporal lobe epilepsy, including the prevention of spontaneous seizures and suppression of disease progression in chronic epilepsy rodent models.

FORT LEE, N.J., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Neurologix, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:NRGX.ob - News) today announced that a landmark paper, published on October 20th in Science Translational Medicine demonstrating the importance of the p11 gene in modulating depression in mice, utilized a gene therapy approach to reverse depression in mice for which the Company holds exclusive development rights. Based on the findings reported in the paper, gene therapy may have potential as a new treatment option for people who suffer from severe depression.

In the study, reduced levels of the p11 protein in the nucleus accumbens (NAcc) of the brain were associated with depressive behaviors in mice. An AAV vector (adeno-associated virus, a disabled, non-pathogenic virus) was used to deliver the p11 gene back into the NAcc of mice who were lacking the p11 protein, reversing the depressive behavior and returning the animals to normal function.

The study also examined samples of brain tissue from a group of deceased human patients, half of whom had severe depression. It was found that there were significantly reduced levels of p11 in the NAcc of depressed patients compared to those without depression. This further highlights the importance of this research in providing a new avenue for future treatment of this widespread disorder.

Neurologix holds the exclusive license to a patent for p11 gene therapy in the treatment of psychiatric conditions, including depression, from Cornell University for and on behalf of the Joan & Sanford I. Weill Medical College. Neurologix scientific co-founder Michael G. Kaplitt, MD, PhD, is co-inventor on the patent, and is the senior author of the research paper.

"The publication of this important research validates our decision to secure the license for developing p11 gene therapy for eventual use in people with depression and other psychiatric disorders," said Clark A. Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix. "Not only do we now know more about the role of the p11 gene in depression, but Neurologix has already demonstrated results using the same transfer technology, and an effective neurosurgical approach, in our Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials for NLX-P101 in patients with Parkinson's disease. We see enormous potential in developing p11 gene therapy for therapeutic use."

Neurologix's investigational gene therapy, NLX-P101, uses the same AAV technology to deliver the GAD gene (glutamic acid decarboxylase) into the subthalamic nucleus region of the brain of Parkinson's patients. Earlier this year, Neurologix disclosed top-line results of a Phase 2 clinical trial of NLX-P101, announcing that study participants who received NLX-P101 experienced statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvements in off-medication motor scores compared to control subjects who received sham surgery.

These forward-looking statements and other information relating to the Company are based upon the beliefs of management and assumptions made by and information currently available to the Company. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, or performance, as well as underlying assumptions and statements that are other than statements of historical fact. When used in this document, the words "expects," "promises," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "intends," "projects," "predicts," "believes," "may" or "should," and similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following:


The Company is still in the development stage and has not generated any revenues. From inception through June 30, 2010, it incurred net losses and negative cash flows from operating activities of approximately $55.7 million and $41.6 million, respectively. Management believes that the Company will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future. Because it may take years to develop, test and obtain regulatory approval for a gene-based therapy product before it can be sold, the Company likely will continue to incur significant losses for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, it may never be profitable and, if it does become profitable, it may be unable to sustain profitability.
At June 30, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $4.5 million. Based on its cash flow projections, the Company will need additional financing to carry out its planned business activity and to complete its plan of operations through December 31, 2010. At the Company's present level of activities, the Company's cash and cash equivalents are believed, at this time, to be sufficient to fund its operations only into the fourth quarter of 2010. Accordingly, there is substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is currently seeking to raise funds, through public or private equity offerings, debt financings or corporate collaboration and licensing arrangements, sufficient to finance its ongoing operations. The Company does not know whether additional financing will be available when needed, or if available, will be on acceptable or favorable terms to it or its stockholders.
The Company will need to conduct future clinical trials for treatment of Parkinson's disease using the Company's NLX technology. If the trials prove unsuccessful, future operations and the potential for profitability will be materially adversely affected and the business may not succeed.
There is no assurance as to when, or if, the Company will be able to successfully receive approval from the FDA on its Investigational New Drug Application to commence a Phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of epilepsy.
There is no assurance as to when, or if, the Company will be able to successfully complete the required preclinical testing of its gene therapy for the treatment of depression or Huntington's disease to enable it to file an Investigational New Drug Application with the FDA for permission to begin a Phase 1 clinical trial or that, if filed, such permission will be granted.


Other factors and assumptions not identified above could also cause the actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Additional information about factors that could cause results to differ materially from management's expectations is found in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Although the Company believes these assumptions are reasonable, no assurance can be given that they will prove correct. Accordingly, you should not rely upon forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. Further, the Company undertakes no obligation to update forward-looking statements after the date they are made or to conform the statements to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.
