ST. MARYS, W. Va.

ProtoKinetix, Incorporated (OTC: PKTX) (the “Company” or “ProtoKinetix”) (www.protokinetix.com) is pleased to announce that AAGP™ will be presented at the 2015 Joint Congress of the IPITA-IXA-CTS on Monday, November 16, 2015. The Joint Congress of the International Pancreas and Islet Transplant Association (IPITA), the International Xenotransplantation Association (IXA) and the Cell Transplant Society (CTS) to be held in Melbourne, Australia, 15–19 November 2015.

Dr. Boris L. Gala-Lopez, Research Fellow of Department of Surgery in the Alberta Diabetes Institute at the University of Alberta will be giving a lecture titled “Anti-aging Glycopeptide Protects Human Islets Against Tacrolimus-related Injury and Facilitates Engraftment” to support his conclusion that, “Supplementation with AAGP™ during the culture period improves islet quality and potency. Upon transplantation, pre-treatment with AAGP™ may facilitate engraftment in mice, improve graft secretory function and may attenuate long-term tacrolimus induced graft dysfunction. These findings may constitute a clear opportunity to develop more efficient strategies against post-transplant diabetes mellitus.
