Recent Announcements Suggest Cellceutix Is Well Positioned With Autism Compound; Pfizer and Novartis Announcements Indicate Interest in Autism by Major Companies

BEVERLY, MA–(Marketwire – May 12, 2010) – Cellceutix Corporation (OTCBB: CTIX), a developer of small compounds for the treatment of cancer, autism and inflammatory diseases, believes that recent announcements by major pharmaceutical companies support its strategy of developing a novel compound to treat autism spectrum disorder. The New York Times published an article on April 29th to report the results from a small, overseas study for the treatment of fragile X syndrome by the Switzerland-based pharmaceutical giant Novartis. Fragile X, a genetic disorder characterized by changes in part of the X chromosome, is believed by Novartis to be a key aspect in attacking developmental disorders such as autism and mental retardation. Pfizer has also recently announced an effort to develop treatments for autism spectrum disorder.
