Nanoviricides, Inc. Presents at the International Conference on Nano-Materials and Applications (ICNAMA-2008) in India

WEST HAVEN, CT | Posted on December 15th, 2008

NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC.OB) (the "Company"), said that Anil R. Diwan, Ph.D., Company President, was invited to present a lecture on nanomedicines and nanoviricides at the International Conference on Nano-Materials and Applications (ICNAMA-2008) held by Shivaji University, Kolhapur, India (SUK).

"We are entering an exciting era in medicine. Nanomedicine promises to provide medicines and diagnostics with effectiveness that earlier could only have been imagined. Previously incurable diseases such as cancer and HIV/AIDS may now be tackled effectively," he said, adding "A clear triumph of nanoviricide materials design and science is now evident. We have been able to develop both safe and highly effective drug candidates against many viral diseases. For example, for HIV/AIDS, NanoViricides, Inc. may now have a functional cure (as recently defined by Anthony Fauci, MD, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases)." He also talked about the highly effective bird flu and influenza treatments being developed by the Company.

Dr. Diwan was also the Chief Guest of the Valedictory Ceremonies. In his speech at the closing ceremonies, he urged the participants that, "interdisciplinary cooperation is essential in the field of nanotechnology. Science and technology from diverse disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Electronics, Materials Science, as well as Biotechnology, Pharmacy, and Medicine need to come together if we are to realize the full potential of nanotechnology. The vast untapped talent of rural India should benefit from the exposure they have been fortunate to receive at this conference."

Professor A.A. Dange, Director of the Board of College and University Development, SUK, said he was pleased to have Dr. Diwan as the guest and hopes that the University can work together with him for development of the nanomedicine field in India. Professor M.M. Salunkhe, Vice-Chancellor, SUK, opened the Conference, commenting that he was very excited to bring this opportunity to expose rural Indian scientists from all over India to the highly specialized nanomaterials work being done at highly recognized Institutes and Companies in India as well as abroad.

The International Conference was organized jointly by the Departments of Chemistry and Physics of SUK, from Dec. 9th to Dec. 11th, and was attended by delegates from the USA, UK, Japan, France, Israel, the Netherlands, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Thailand, among other countries.
