Pivotal Therapeutics VASCAZEN® - Meets Primary Endpoint In Reveal Trial - Top Line Results Accepted For Presentation At The American Heart Association's ATVB 2013 Scientific Sessions

WOODBRIDGE, ON, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Pivotal Therapeutics Inc. (OTCQX: PVTTF) (CNSX: PVO), a specialty pharmaceutical company with a focus on Omega-3 therapies for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and overall health, is pleased to announce that VASCAZEN ® met its primary endpoint in the REVEAL trial. Additionally, VASCAZEN ® achieved statistical significance in various secondary endpoints in patients presenting with elevated triglycerides (>200mg/dL < 500mg/dL). The data has been accepted for presentation at the American Heart Association's Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology (ATVB) 2013 Scientific Sessions (ATVB) at Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA, May 1-3, 2013.

"This data represents a significant milestone for VASCAZEN ® as a treatment option for the thousands of people who are Omega-3 defeicient and suffer from elevated triglycerides yet remain below the threshold of "very high" triglycerides required for treatment with currently available prescription medications" said Dr. George Jackowski, Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer. "This landmark study is among the first that examined Omega-3 deficiency pre and post treatment and brings the importance of its correction to the forefront as an important part in managing CVD patients.  We are very excited to be presenting our top line results at this premier conference as it attracts the top clinicians and scientists in all areas of cardiovascular disease focusing on lipids and heart disease."

Dr. Jackowski gratefully acknowledges the outstanding contribution of the Contract Research Organization (CRO), Nutrasource Diagnostics Inc., Guelph, Ontario, Canada, for its professional execution and management of the VASCAZEN ® - REVEAL trial.   "The CRO trial team has done a superb job in the overall management of this pivotal study," stated Dr. Jackowski.

About the Study

The VASCAZEN ® - REVEAL trial is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, multi-center USA based study that enrolled 110 patients. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of VASCAZEN ® in the correction of Omega-3 deficiency in patients with one or more risk factors associated with CVD, and to evaluate VASCAZEN ®'s concomitant effects on cardiovascular risk factors including triglycerides, VLDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol among others. The primary efficacy endpoint was the correction of an Omega-3 deficiency, and secondary endpoints included positive effects on lipid profiles, without any adverse events.
