3/31/2008

MONTREAL, March 28 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX.V: BUG) Biophage Pharma Inc. (the "Corporation") reports today that over the past months, the Corporation was actively seeking to increase revenues through grants, service contracts and equity financing. Although several grants applications have been successful; financing was much more difficult and has been limited to small insider loans. Notwithstanding these loans, the Corporation is presently unable to maintain its operations without important restructuring. The Board of Directors has decided to substantially reduce the Corporation's activities to control operation costs, and will seek opportunity to refinance, licence its technologies or sell part or all its assets. As a consequence, the Corporation will be unable to file its Annual Financial Statements on time. About Biophage Pharma Inc.
