Standard & Poor's Initiates Factual Stock Report Coverage on Starpharma Holdings, Ltd.

New York, NY | Posted on May 10th, 2007

Starpharma Holdings, Ltd. (OTCQX:SPHRY) develops dendrimer nanotechnology for pharmaceutical, life science and other applications. Starpharma is principally composed of two operating companies, Starpharma Pty Ltd in Melbourne, Australia and Dendritic Nanotechnologies, Inc. in Michigan. Products based on Starpharma's dendrimer technology are on the market in the form of diagnostic elements and laboratory reagents.

The company's lead development candidates are based on dendrimer nanotechnology. Dendrimers are man-made, nano-sized compounds with unique properties that make them useful to the health and pharmaceutical industry as both enhancements to existing products and as products that are entirely new.

SPHRY's lead pharmaceutical development product is VivaGel (SPL7013 Gel), a vaginal microbicide designed to prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV and genital herpes. In February 2007, VivaGel was undergoing human expanded safety trials in Melbourne, Australia; San Francisco; and Kisumu, Kenya.

On October 23, 2006, Starpharma acquired Dendritic Nanotechnologies, Inc., which provides innovative dendrimer technologies and commercialization services with its new proprietary Priostar dendrimer technologies. With the acquisition of Dendritic Nanotechnologies, the company gained access to PrioFect, a new application of dendrimer technology.

This report will also be accessible on an ongoing basis to the investment community ---- scores of buy-side institutions and sell-side firms that utilize S&P research and information platforms daily. Millions of self-directed investors also have access to the report via their e-brokerage accounts.
