5/21/2010 11:05:56 AM

WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Joseph F. Finn, Jr., C.P.A. ("Finn"), Assignee for the Benefit of Creditors of Epix Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Epix"), announced today that the auction of the MRI imaging intellectual properties has been changed to June 22, 2010 at 9:00 A.M. Eastern. This was done to allow bidders to complete due diligence on all three (3) gadolinium-based imaging programs. They consist of 1) MS-325 (gadofosveset trisodium), commercial MRA imaging agent, currently marketed as Ablavar® in the US by Lantheus Medical Imaging and formerly marketed as Vasovist®, in Europe and other countries by Bayer Schering Pharma. The MS-325 commercial rights for sale include Europe, Switzerland and other regions outside the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Australia, 2) EP-2104R, a fibrin binding MRI imaging agent in Phase 2 clinical development for clot detection; and 3) EP-3600, a collagen binding MRI imaging agent in preclinical development for myocardial perfusion. Bidders may bid on any combination of the three or all three.

The assets of Epix were transferred to him on July 20, 2009 and he is liquidating them for the benefit of Epix creditors. He recently reached an agreement with Bayer Schering Pharma that permits the sale of the MRI imaging programs.

Persons interested in bidding must sign a Confidentiality Disclosure Agreement ("CDA") obtained from Finn's Office IPSALESERVICES@FINNWARNKEGAYTON.COM or 781-237-8840. They will then receive a bid package and access to an electronic data room.
