Preliminary Results Of Detailed Analysis


Vancouver, BC (July 6, 2006) - WEX Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the detailed analysis of the Phase IIb/III data collected during the double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled study of Tectin™ in inadequately controlled moderate to severe cancer pain is progressing.

The first phase of a detailed analysis using different parameters such as assessment of other pain scales, i.e. neuropathic pain scale, McGill Pain Questionnaire, and quality of life items (general activity, walking, mood, sleep, etc..) which were not examined by the Data Monitoring Committee is completed. Preliminary results are consistent with the results observed in the Phase IIa open label study. It should be noted, however, that these results are provisional and are still subject to review and validation.

Once the analysis is validated by an independent source the Company will determine the next steps in the clinical development of Tectin™ and provide additional information.
