Nutra Pharma Announces Initial Positive Safety Data from Clinical Study in Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN)
August 14, 2008

Nutra Pharma Corp., a biotechnology company that is developing drugs for HIV and Multiple Sclerosis, has announced today that its wholly-owned drug discovery subsidiary, ReceptoPharm, has reported initial positive safety data from its Phase IIb/IIIa clinical study of RPI-78M for treating Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN). RPI-78M is ReceptoPharm’s leading drug candidate for treating neurological and autoimmune disorders.

“Initial reports and feedback from physicians involved with this clinical study have reported that patients have experienced no adverse side effects from RPI-78M,” explained Paul Reid, CEO of ReceptoPharm. “This is an important indicator of the success of this clinical study, as it provides the medical and pharmacological communities with early evidence supporting the safety of our leading drug candidate, RPI-78M,” he concluded.

Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) is a rare inherited metabolic disorder that affects approximately 30,000 people worldwide. The disorder is characterized by the loss of the fatty covering (myelin sheath) on nerve fibers within the brain (cerebral demyelination) and the progressive degeneration of the adrenal gland (adrenal atrophy). Neurological disability in AMN is slowly progressive over several decades.

AMN interests the wider neurologic community because of its similarities to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). There is currently no approved treatment for AMN. Additionally, the disease's rarity designates it as an orphan drug candidate both in Europe and in the U.S. The Company has applied for Orphan drug status in the U.S. and intends on doing so for the EU.

ReceptoPharm expects to present the complete clinical findings and data from this study by the end of September.
