SPHRY- Star Pharma Holdings. Its a long term thing.

SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Starpharma Holdings Ltd (ASX: SPL, Pink Sheets: SPHRY) today announced the signing of an agreement with SSL International plc (LSE: SSL - News), owner of Durex®, the world's leading condom brand.

he agreement, under which a commercial licence will be negotiated, sets out a co-development program for condoms with a VivaGel® coating. Undisclosed fees are payable to Starpharma under the co-development agreement, which also provides for the commencement of regulatory and market development activities by the two parties.

SSL is the world's largest manufacturer of condoms with approximately 30% share of the global market for branded condom sales, selling into over 100 countries around the world. Global condom retail sales in 2005 were approximately $3.2 billion(1)(1), with the top four companies representing as much as 70% of the market.

"We are delighted to be working with SSL, whom we believe will be an excellent co-development partner for VivaGel® as a condom coating," said Starpharma's Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Jackie Fairley. "In addition to SSL's unparalleled global commercial position and the strength of the Durex® brand, Starpharma also values the organisation's innovative approach, and its social-marketing program.

"Our development and commercialisation activities for VivaGel® are gathering momentum with this SSL agreement being the second of two unrelated condom coating agreements signed by Starpharma in the last three months," concluded Dr. Fairley.

VivaGel® has been shown to have potent contraceptive and microbicidal properties in animal studies, and is also under development as a stand-alone gel to prevent the transmission of STIs, including HIV and genital herpes.
