Re Agreement

Lipoxen PLC
24 September 2007

For Immediate Release                                          24 September 2007

                                  Lipoxen PLC

                          ('Lipoxen' or 'the Company')

Lipoxen and Intervet, a leading Animal Health company, Announce a Collaboration
                 Agreement to Develop Sustained-Release Insulin

- Collaboration to utilise Lipoxen's PolyXen(R) Protein Drug Delivery Technology - 

London, UK, 24 September, 2007 - Lipoxen PLC (AIM: LPX) and Intervet, a leading
animal health company, today announced that the companies have entered into an
exclusive worldwide development and licence agreement to develop a sustained-release 
insulin for the veterinary health market.

The signing of this agreement by Intervet triggers an upfront payment to
Lipoxen. The agreement also provides for further clinical, regulatory and sales
milestone payments to Lipoxen. In addition, Lipoxen will receive royalties on
future product sales.

Intervet has signed this agreement in order to access Lipoxen's unique PolyXen
(R) drug delivery technology. This technology has been developed to improve the
pharmacokinetic profile of protein drugs including extending their therapeutic
half life, thereby reducing the frequency of administration. PolyXen(R) is based
on linking the therapeutic proteins, or peptides, of interest to the naturally
occurring polymer polysialic acid. It improves the stability and the therapeutic
half-life of protein drugs and improves their solubility and immunological
characteristics, while maintaining biological activity and minimizing toxicity.

Scott Maguire, CEO of Lipoxen, said: 'We are delighted that Intervet has decided 
to enter into this collaboration with Lipoxen to apply PolyXen(R) to develop a 
sustained release insulin formulation for veterinary use.  This is the third 
exclusive license agreement that we have put in place with large biopharmaceutical 
companies granting access to our proprietary protein delivery technology and we 
believe that we are well positioned to leverage our technology further through 
additional agreements in the pharmaceutical space.'

He added 'Intervet is the 3rd largest animal health company globally, by sales, 
and is targeting a veterinary market worth $40 million globally with this product.  
Importantly this collaboration reinforces our own view that our technology can 
deliver a sustained-insulin formulation. Lipoxen is currently developing a human 
sustained-release insulin which is expected to enter clinical development prior 
to the end of 2007.'

Ellen de Brabander, Vice President Research and Development of Intervet International 
stated: 'It is Intervet's ambition to develop innovative new animal health products. 
Therefore we are very open for collaborations with partners who have unique expertise 
that complements our in house strengths.  This collaboration agreement with Lipoxen 
opens up new opportunities for our insulin products.'
