SHARON, Pa., April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Infectech, Inc.,
(Pink Sheets: IFEC), a Nanobiotechnology company engaged in the research,
development and commercialization of technologies for the production of
bacteria and disease testing kits, alternative sources of fuel, cancer therapy
and remediation of toxic materials, announced today that the company has
changed its name to NANOLOGIX, INC. The Company's name change was approved in
a March 30 special meeting, during which a proposal to reverse split the
company's common stock was turned down due to resistance from minority
The convergence of science, medicine and technology is on the cusp of
yielding extraordinary breakthroughs. Today, patents that were once designed
to identify bacteria have widespread applications across multiple markets. At
the heart of this convergence is nature. All things begin and end with the
building blocks of life. NanoLogix's portfolio of 31 patents have yielded a
method vital to the development of nanotechnology products, a method for low
cost hydrogen production, FDA registered products in the medical device
industry, a genomic cancer therapy and methods for cleaning up toxic
environments using bioremediation. According to Lux Research, sales of
products that incorporate nanotechnology are expected to explode over the next
five years, from $12.98 billion in 2004 to an estimated $507.74 billion in
2010. The following validates the value of NanoLogix's broad patent portfolio
along with its current and future product lines.
NanoLogix's patents have nanotechnology applications in hydrogen gas
production, medical drugs/devices, bio-defense sensors and bioremediation.
Nanotechnology applications include Biochips embedded in small transportable
devices for rapid bacteria identification of disease causing pathogens, and
Bio Micro Electro Mechanical Systems ("BioMEMS") for rapid environmental
microbial monitoring with bio-defense implications. Its hydrogen bioreactor
research is designed to assist in worldwide energy independence and reduce
pollution using renewable, environmentally-friendly energy sources.
NanoLogix's FDA registered diagnostic test kits are designed to be used for
the rapid identification of infectious human diseases and identify 34 disease-
producing bacteria, including Tuberculosis (TB), Mycobacterium avium-
intracellulare (MAI), Pseudomonas, and Nocardia. These bacteria are cited as
prominent causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with cancer, cystic
fibrosis, and AIDS, as well as in patients undergoing surgery. Additionally,
NanoLogix owns a patent for the nontoxic induction of apoptosis in cancer
cells utilizing hydrophobic hydrocarbons. Apoptosis is a method for inducing a
genetically based induction of "cell suicide" in cells. It therefore serves as
the foundation for cancer therapy. NanoLogix's other patents include
technology designed for use in the bioremediation of contaminated soil and
