NanoLogix Files Hydrogen Production Provisional Patent Application Expanding Its Intellectual Property Portfolio to 32 Patents Issued and Pending in Nanotechnology and NanoBiotechnology

    SHARON, Pa., June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NanoLogix, Inc.,
 (Pink Sheets:   NNLX), 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 that it has filed a provisional
 patent application for its proprietary method of synergistically combining a
 bacteria-based hydrogen production method with excess industrial heat.  The
 excess heat utilized by this method helps isolate hydrogen producing bacteria
 in the bacteria-based hydrogen production method.  The bacterial hydrogen
 production process uses excess heat that is produced during standard usage of
 hydrogen production method, thereby reducing the cost of the hydrogen
 production by running two methods simultaneously and conserving energy.
     NanoLogix recently announced that preliminary data and results of a study
 which confirms laboratory proof-of-concept measurements have shown it possible
 to generate hydrogen in high yields via the use and adaptation of its
 intellectual property.  In this study, the bioreactor produced biogas
 consisting of 50% hydrogen by volume, without any trace of methane.
     "NanoLogix intends to dominate the patent coverage for a variety of
 disruptive technologies at a time when the energy and healthcare industries
 are screaming for change," said David McClelland, President of NanoLogix. "We
 are seeing confirmation of this by the caliber of companies we are in
 discussions with who have expressed interest in our technology, in addition to
 significant progress we are making in our research collaborations," he added.
     Recently, NanoLogix, Inc. signed a feasibility study with the Department
 of Environmental Science and Engineering of Gannon University in Erie, PA to
 develop a bioreactor which utilizes NanoLogix's patented bacterial culturing
 methods in order to produce hydrogen inexpensively.  Hydrogen reacts with
 oxygen to yield significant amounts of energy, and has the added benefit of
 not producing carbon dioxide as a by-product (the reaction between hydrogen
 and oxygen simply generates water vapor).  NanoLogix believes they have
 discovered the most likely method for low cost production of massive
 quantities of hydrogen as an alternate energy source.  NanoLogix has
 ascertained through its patent counsel that there are eleven relevant U.S.
 patents concerning the database containing the terms "Clostridia" and
 "Hydrogen Production."  NanoLogix presently owns five of these eleven issued
 patents.
 
     About NanoLogix
     NanoLogix, Inc., formerly known as Infectech (http://www.infectech.com),
 is a technology application innovator of biogas products and services designed
 to assist in worldwide energy independence and reduce pollution from
 renewable, environmentally-friendly energy sources. NanoLogix is also engaged
 in the research and development of diagnostic test kits designed to be used
 for the rapid identification of infectious human diseases. The Company's
 patents span the identification and antibiotic sensitivity testing of 34
 disease-producing bacteria, including M. 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. 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. The Company's 31 patents can be viewed by visiting

     About Nanotechnology
     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 biophasic system devices intended for
 medical purposes to cultivate and identify certain pathogenic microorganisms.
 The devices contain one or more components that suppress the growth of certain
 microorganisms while either promoting or not affecting the growth of other
 microorganisms.  The FDA registered devices aid in the diagnosis of disease
 caused by the pathogenic microorganisms. Additional products include a method
 for low cost hydrogen production, a genomic cancer therapy and methods for
 cleaning up toxic environments using bioremediation.
     NanoLogix's patents have nanotechnology applications in medical
 drugs/devices, bio-defense sensors, hydrogen production, cancer treatment 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 water.
