About Summit plc
Summit plc  is  a  leading  UK biotechnology  company  with  a  broad
preclinical  and  clinical  pipeline,  two  world-leading  technology
platforms and  an  innovative  business model  that  is  expected  to
generate sustainable value for investors.
Summit is  developing  multiple  drug programmes  that  target  unmet
medical  needs  from   which  it   intends  to   generate  value   by
out-licensing attractive  late preclinical  or early  clinical  stage
programmes in  return for  upfront, milestone  and royalty  payments.
Summit uses  its  scientific  expertise to  target  orphan  diseases,
neuro-disorders and infectious  diseases. Summit has  signed a  major
licensing agreement with BioMarin in Duchenne muscular dystrophy  and
has co-development  agreements  with  Evolva  (infectious  diseases),
Orient  Pharma  (sialorrhoea)  and   the  Lilly  TB  Drug   Discovery
Initiative (tuberculosis)
Underpinning Summit's  drug pipeline  are two  innovative  technology
platforms:  carbohydrate  chemistry  and  zebrafish  biology.   These
platforms support existing programmes and also will be the source  of
future  programmes  to  replenish  Summit's  drug  pipeline.    These
platform technologies also form the basis of the Company's profitable
service business.
The company listed on the alternative investment market (AIM) of  the
London Stock  Exchange  in  October 2004  -  symbol:  SUMM.   Further
