Neptune Krill Oil Beneficial for Adult ADHD

Laval, Quebec, Canada, June 15, 2006, Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc., is pleased to announce positive interim results of the effect of Neptune Krill Oil on adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The non-randomized Phase I open label clinical study, entitled "Evaluation of the effect of Neptune Krill Oil on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)", is being conducted by Barry University in Miami Shores, FL, USA and private naturopath Clinics in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in collaboration with the International Association of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of Neptune Krill Oil on adult ADHD as measured by Barkley's Executive Function score of behavior inhibition, self-control and executive function. The study consists of 30 otherwise healthy adults with a confirmed diagnosis of ADHD taking a 500mg daily dose of NKO.

The 90-day interim results show a statistically significant improvement in all three of the Barkley's Executive Function scores. Patients improved their ability to concentrate by 56.3% (p=0.007), their ability to manage money by 33% (p=0.01) and their planning skills by 50% (p=0.001).

"These results are extremely encouraging. The interim results allow us to predict an equally encouraging final outcome of the study." said Dr. Tina Sampalis, M.D., Ph.D., Vice President of R&D and Business Development at Neptune. "Upon final completion of the study, by the end of the year, and positive results as expected, we will proceed to a pivotal Phase II-III ADHD clinical program."

According to the proceedings of the American Psychiatric Association 2005 Annual Meeting, 58% of people diagnosed with ADHD as children still have full ADHD as adults; ADHD is estimated to affect 4.4% of adults aged 18-44 and 7% to 10% of children in the United States. Recent data has shown that 54% of women and 36% of men with adult ADHD suffer from major depression. The treatments recommended today for adult ADHD are stimulants, like Ritalin and antidepressants. The estimated adult ADHD market for 2006 is approximately $900 million in a total ADHD market including children of $2.5 billion.

Neptune krill oil is derived from the plankton family of crustacean and, unlike fish oil, it is also rich in phospholipids and antioxidants. Although Neptune believes it has no direct competitors, the general benefits of fish-derived omega-3 has helped raise awareness of its core Omega-3 DHA and EPA benefits.
