Enzolytics, Inc. Announces Letter of Intent for Exclusive Licensing Agreement for Patented Nitric Oxide Formulation

Updates on ETC Marketing, Inc and Ownership of ITV-1 and IPF

ALLEN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / May 22, 2024 / Enzolytics, Inc. (OTC PINK:ENZC) ("enzolytics.com")(the "Company") announced today that it has entered into a Letter of Intent with Enogenesis (ENGN) for the specific use of the therapeutic application of ENGN's patented Nitric Oxide Compound ( "NOC"). The initial focus for sales will be combining NOC with the nutraceutical products of the wholly owned subsidiary of Sagaliam Acquisition, Corp ("SAGA"), Virogentics Inc's ("VIRO"). The current products include IPF Immune, brain detox, liver detox and a new weight loss compound. The NOC patented compound can be produced in a liquid, solid or spray which can be included in the drops, pill or spray form currently being produced by VIRO. In addition, VIRO is the exclusive licensee of the patents on ITV-1, owned by Zhabilov Trust and invented and patented solely by Harry Zhabilov Jr. ITV-1 is beginning the pharmacokinetics investigation stage for future permitting in Europe with the European Medicine Agency (EMA) which the Company believes will be an additional market for NOC.

The discovery of nitric oxide's role as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system led to the 1998 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The groundbreaking work by Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro, and Ferid Murad revealed how nitric oxide regulates blood vessels, influencing blood pressure and overall health. Their research spanned several decades, culminating in this prestigious recognition. It was named the "Molecule of the Year" in 1992 by the Journal of Science. Nitric oxide is a diatomic molecule in gaseous form. It is highly active, and its short half-life makes it difficult to convert it into other states than its gaseous form. Historically, a standard of care treatment for COPD has been the application of NOC in its gaseous form in a hospital setting, at a cost of over $7,000 per patient application. Enogenesis has patented the application of technology to enable the use of NOC in standalone and combination therapies at a low-cost in prescribed, over the counter and nutraceutical compounds with a long shelf life.

One of the initial licensed applications will be for diabetes, where ENZC and ENGN will work to use NOC with Metformin. The Company believes the addition of NOC will significantly lower the gastro intestinal adverse effects (lactose acidosis) associated with the use of Metformin and other anti-diabetic drugs containing Metformin by increasing the effectiveness of the delivery allowing lower doses to be administered. The Company will also license the topical NOC cream for application to diabetic neuropathy.

It is anticipated that Enzolytics will be able to bring the NOC Metformin to market quickly. The Enogenesis technology allows for oral delivery of the combination of NOC with Metformin, and topical cream formulation of NOC with Metformin for Neuropathy. These products are formulated for timed release to deliver efficacy in prescribed dosage and timed Metformin delivery. NOC formulation with Metformin is a direct delivery that improves on the bioavailability of the current products on the market, and significantly reduces the quantity of Metformin needed. According to Statistica, Metformin is primarily used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and in 2020 and 2021, the annual number of prescriptions in the U.S. exceeded 90 million.

Robert Kremer, the President of Enogenesis commented, "Our team has devoted decades to exploring the development of commercial technology for delivering low-cost therapies incorporating NOC. The Metformin application is one of the most widely used prescription therapies for diabetes. We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Enzolytics on both the commercialization of the NOC Metformin application, as well as using our technology to accelerate the commercialization of Enzolytics and Virogentics' portfolio of current and future products. The NOC technology application is a versatile and highly innovative solution for the health industry that has the potential to address many markets."

Dr. Mahantesh Navati, the Chief Scientific Officer of Enogenesis, commented, "We have developed a unique combination drug therapy with nitric oxide that leads to many biomedical applications. The NOC technology can enhance the effectiveness of many drugs currently on the market, opening a vast field for licensing and sales opportunities, especially in brain diseases based on nitric oxide's ability to cross the blood brain barrier."

Steve Sharabura, Interim CEO of Enzolytics, commented: "This agreement with Enogenesis is exciting. It's a cutting-edge technology. This fits nicely with our existing expertise, and is the basis for Enzolytics' further technological expansion."

Harry Zhabilov, the Chief Scientific Officer of Enzolytics and Sagaliam commented, "The NOC technologically is a powerful compound to improve the effectiveness and bioavailability of other therapies. We believe that applying the Enogenesis technology to Virogentics' pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products will greatly accelerate our ability to commercialize our products. I would like to assure the shareholders of SAGA, the majority of which are Enzolytics shareholders, that all the misleading information currently being stated about ownership of my patents and the exclusive licensing of the patents to Virogentics will be vigorously protected. "

Marketing will be managed through ETC Marketing, the recently announced venture formed by ENZC, focusing on licensing of products in the medical devices, nutraceuticals, medical testing and other wellbeing and safety product markets. As part of the relationship with ETC Marketing, SAGA is expanding its product categories from nutraceuticals, to also partnerships in the distribution of consumer medical devices and home tests for multiple indications. To fund this opportunity, SAGA is in the final stages for an award of a $25 million grant from an organization based in Tokyo, Japan with a mission to sponsor promising technologies and businesses focused on making significant global contributions to healthcare, science, technology and education.
