Neuronova receives a silent partnership from tbg and renames to Affectis Pharmaceuticals

January 31st 2005 -- Munich, Germany -- Neuronova AG, a biopharmaceutical company developing novel drugs against depression and anxiety, has received a grant of € 750,000 from Germany’s tbg Technologie-Beteiligungs-Gesellschaft mbH, a state funding organisation. Furthermore, Neuronova has officially changed its name to Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG. The renaming to Affectis Pharmaceuticals will become effective immediately and is based on a joint decision of the Company’s Executive and Supervisory Board.

The funding from tbg will be used to further advance Affectis’ internal drug discovery and development programs, in particular the Company’s most advanced program against depression which is to enter preclinical studies in 2006.

'In only one year's time, we have successfully promoted our projects from target discovery to lead validation and positioned the Company as a promising and innovative firm offering new therapeutic perspectives for the treatment of depression and anxiety,' commented Dr Herbert Stadler, Chief Executive Officer of Affectis Pharmaceuticals AG. “The grant from tbg and the renaming to Affectis Pharmaceuticals underpin the increasing progress of our organisation.” ###
