Neurologix held cash and cash equivalents of approximately $6.5 million at March 31, 2010.

Clark A. Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Neurologix, noted that these first quarter financial results were consistent with the Company's expectations. "During the quarter Neurologix gained further intellectual property protections for its approach to gene therapy covering both the use of the GAD gene for the treatment of Parkinson's disease and other neurological disorders, and the use of the NPY gene for the treatment of epilepsy. These intellectual property protections further validate the innovative nature of our proprietary technology platform and approach to the treatment of central nervous system diseases, and underscore our company's leadership in the emerging field of molecular medicine for neurological disorders."

Mr. Johnson further noted that the Company's ongoing clinical program for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease remained on course, and Neurologix expected to announce preliminary efficacy data from the Company's Phase 2 clinical trial mid-year.
