TORONTO, May 10, 2018 – Revive Therapeutics Ltd. (“Revive” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:RVV) (OTCQB:RVVTF), a company focused on the research, development and commercialization of novel cannabinoid-based therapies, today announced the acceptance of an abstract for a poster presentation for the Company’s cannabinoid delivery technology at the XXIX International Conference on Polyphenols and the 9th Tannin Conference (“ICP + TC 2018”). The poster, entitled “Tannin-Chitosan composite materials for transdermal delivery of cannabidiol,” detailing the results from the Company’s research project with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will be available for viewing during the poster sessions.
“We are pleased to have our cannabinoid delivery technology results presented at this year’s ICP + TC 2018 conference,” said Fabio Chianelli, President of Revive. “Revive is positioned to advance the development and commercialization of novel cannabinoid delivery technologies and products offering licensed medical cannabis producers and pharmaceutical companies unique opportunities in broad markets opportunities such as in inflammation, pain, dermatology, wound healing, and liver disease.”
The XXIX International Conference on Polyphenols (“ICP”) and the 9th Tannin Conference (“TC”) will be held July 16th through July 20th in Madison, Wisconsin. Groupe Polyphénols, founded in 1972, is the world’s premier society of scientists in the fields of polyphenol chemistry, bioactivity, nutrition, industrial applications, synthesis, and ecology. Every two years, Groupe Polyphénols hosts the ICP. The XXIX ICP will be the first one to be held in the United States. In 2018, the ICP will also host the 9th Tannin Conference. After the very successful joint meeting in 2014 in Nagoya, the Tannin Conference will continue this new tradition of meeting jointly with the ICP. This conference coincides with the 30-year anniversary of the first North American Tannin Conference, held in Port Angeles Washington in August 1988.
About the Cannabinoid Delivery Technology
The delivery technology aims to deliver both synthetic cannabinoids and natural extracts of cannabis in a potential number of ways such as topical gels, creams or ointments, oral or transdermal patches, and oral dosages. The delivery technology is a natural, non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible composite that combines a tannin material, which is derived from a plant group having antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and wound healing properties, and a chitosan material, which is derived from the crustacean group having blood-clotting and antimicrobial properties. The delivery technology has rapid onset of action and controlled or sustained release potential capabilities and may allow to combine multiple cannabinoids or cannabis extracts in one formulation. The Company seeks to develop novel products that target multi-billion dollar market opportunities such as inflammation, pain (i.e. neuropathic, joint pain), dermatology (i.e. acne, psoriasis), wound healing applications (i.e. battle wounds, scarring), and liver diseases.

Specifically, forward-looking statements in this news release include, without limitation, statements regarding: the granting of a patent for Bucillamine for the treatment of gout; the potential efficacy and commercial viability of Bucillamine for treatment of gout and Bucillamine for the treatment of Cystinuria; expansion of the Bucillamine clinical testing program; the Company’s drug research and development, and commercialization plans; the Company’s research, development and commercialization plans for plant-based therapies, including cannabinoids; the Company’s cannabinoid delivery technology; the Company’s license agreement with Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation; the Company’s cannabinoid-based product pipeline; the timing of operations; and estimates of market conditions. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause actual results or events, performance, or achievements of Revive to differ materially from those anticipated or implied in such forward-looking statements.
