Planegg/Munich (Germany), Princeton, NJ and Houston, TX, July 20, 2011 (euro
adhoc) - Agennix AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: AGX) today announced the
appointment of Christine Boisclair as Senior Vice President, Global Regulatory
Affairs, reporting to Dr. Rajesh Malik, Chief Medical Officer.  In this
position, Ms. Boisclair will lead all global regulatory, quality and compliance
activities for Agennix, including regulatory filings for talactoferrin. 

Rajesh Malik, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, said, "I am very pleased to welcome
Christine Boisclair to Agennix.  She has a strong track record of getting drugs
approved in both Europe and the U.S., including a drug for non-small cell lung
cancer.  Her extensive expertise in overseeing novel therapies through the
regulatory review process will be invaluable as we advance talactoferrin through
development and prepare for a potential regulatory filing if the FORTIS-M trial
is positive."

Ms. Boisclair has over twenty years of U.S. and European regulatory affairs
experience, covering both drugs and biologics in a variety of therapeutic areas,
including oncology and anti-infectives. She joins Agennix from OSI
Pharmaceuticals, Inc., where she worked for over ten years in positions of
increasing responsibility, most recently serving as Vice President, Regulatory
Affairs.  At OSI, she built up the regulatory affairs department and served as
the regulatory lead for the successful New Drug Application (NDA) for Tarceva®
(erlotinib) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), as well as the subsequent
supplemental NDAs for pancreatic cancer and NSCLC maintenance.  Prior to OSI,
she worked at several biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, including
Genzyme Corporation, GD Searle & Co. and Glaxo Group Research.  She holds a
Bachelor of Science Honors Degree in Biochemistry from York University, York,
England.
