LATEST NEWS!! Pacific Biometrics Inc. Reports First Quarter Operating Results --Revenue Increased 27% From Prior-Year Period SEATTLE, Nov 16, 2009 -- Pacific Biometrics, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PBME) ("PBI" or "the Company"), a leading provider of specialty central laboratory and clinical biomarker services, today announced its operating results for the first quarter of FY2010. The Company will host an investor conference call to discuss its FY2010 first quarter operating results at 4:15 p.m. EST today (see details below).

For the three months ended September 30, 2009, revenues increased 27% to $2,301,375, compared with $1,805,042 in the first quarter of the previous fiscal year. The Company posted an operating loss of $213,708 in the most recent quarter, versus an operating loss of $213,372 in the prior-year period. The Company reported a net loss of $273,150, or $0.01 per share, in the most recent quarter, versus a net loss of $5,737, or $0.00 per share, in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year. The increase in net loss was primarily due to the fact that in the first quarter of FY2009 the Company recorded a significant non-cash gain related to convertible debt that was then outstanding.

"We are pleased that our first quarter revenues were 27% above last year's levels," commented Ron Helm, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Biometrics, Inc. "Having said that, we did not reach our internal revenue goal, in part because of the early termination of several clinical studies for reasons unrelated to our performance. Unfortunately, studies are sometimes terminated unexpectedly by clinical trial sponsors, for a variety of reasons, prior to the completion of our work under the terms of the original contracts. This is simply a feature of our business. We also cannot ignore the ongoing economic difficulties that continue to impact the clinical trials industry, combined with the impact of tight credit markets on spending and investment in all sectors of our markets." "Although our gross profit margins improved and our SG&A expense ratio declined relative to the prior-year period, we still recorded an operating loss in this year's first quarter. This reflects, in large part, the significant and ongoing investments we are making in our clinical biomarker services business, which we continue to see as a major growth opportunity going forward. Despite the decline in first quarter net income, I am pleased to report that PBI continued to generate positive cash flow from operating activities during the three months ended September 30, 2009." "Based on our internal financial metrics, we are optimistic that our revenues for fiscal 2010 will exceed the record revenues achieved in fiscal 2009," Mr. Helm continued. "We are encouraged by the substantial requests for proposals received from new and existing customers in recent months, and I am confident that PBI's scientific, technical and operational capabilities, combined with a more aggressive business development strategy, will allow us to capture our fair share of these new contract opportunities. Also, our continued focus on biomarkers is gaining traction in a market that is experiencing significant growth in outsourced lab services and in which there are as yet no dominant industry leaders. To further capitalize on these trends, we are investing in new instrument platforms that will allow us to broaden our therapeutic areas of expertise and open up additional growth opportunities." For additional information, see Pacific Biometrics' Annual Report on Form 10K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009 and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended September 30, 2009, available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

LATEST NEWS!! FDA Grants GeoVax Labs, Inc. Request For Pre-IND Meeting ATLANTA, Nov 17, 2009 -- GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GOVX) (the "Company"), an Atlanta-based, biopharmaceutical company developing human vaccines for diseases caused by HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and other infectious agents, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted its request for a pre-IND meeting to discuss the proposed Investigational New Drug (IND) application for GeoVax's therapeutic vaccine as a treatment for individuals already infected with HIV. The meeting will only take place if the Company is not satisfied or requires some clarification to the FDA's answers to the questions submitted in the pre-IND package. Following the FDA response to the Pre-IND meeting questions, GeoVax will prepare and submit to the FDA an IND application for the therapeutic trial.

Robert McNally, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer, stated, "In anticipation of a pre-IND meeting in mid December, we have submitted a pre-IND information packet to the FDA. This packet includes rationale and supporting data for each question in the pre-IND package to allow a response from the FDA. The main purpose of the Pre-IND meeting is to ensure the FDA understands the purpose, approach and endpoints for the anticipated Phase 1 therapeutic trial and that we have answers to all of our questions to the FDA prior to filing the actual IND.

"While there are no guarantees of success for our therapeutic IND package, the pre-IND process helps ensure that our IND will adequately address any concerns the FDA may have about the proposed therapeutic trial," Dr. McNally added. "We understand the extreme need for this vaccine and we understand the process necessary to navigate forward." A new IND with the FDA is required since this will be the first time the GeoVax vaccine will be used for a therapeutic application. The Phase 1 therapeutic protocol stresses safety parameters to minimize any risk to the volunteers. The protocol, conceived with collaboration from ARCA (AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta), has specific objectives to optimize safety while evaluating the ability for the vaccine to elicit protective immune responses in vaccinated participants. The proposed trial is based on the achievement of excellent post-vaccine viral control in animal trials conducted in recently infected non-human primates at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, affiliated with Emory University. The proposed human trial follows the precedents set in the preclinical animal trials and is a critical step towards developing a therapeutic vaccine for HIV-1 infected humans.

The IND process is expected to take a number of months to complete. Based on the Company's current progress, commencement of the trial is targeted for early 2010.

HIV affects the entire globe and comes in a variety of subtypes. Clade B is the predominant subtype in North America, where there are roughly 60,000 new infections each year. Globally, there are about 2.5 million AIDS infections per year, most primarily involving subtypes AG, B, and C. In 2007, UNAIDS reported 1.3 million people living with AIDS in North America and 33.2 million people living with AIDS worldwide.

About GeoVax Labs, Inc.

GeoVax Labs, Inc. is a biotechnology company, established to develop, manufacture, license and commercialize human vaccines for diseases caused by HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and other infectious agents. GeoVax's AIDS vaccine technology is the subject of 20 issued or filed patent applications. GeoVax AIDS vaccines are designed for use in uninfected people to prevent Acquired Immunodeficiency Disease (AIDS), caused by the virus known as HIV-1, should the person become infected. GeoVax AIDS vaccines also may be effective as a therapeutic treatment (for people already infected with the HIV-1 virus).

GeoVax's core AIDS vaccine technologies were developed by Dr. Harriet Robinson, Senior V.P. of Research and Development, through a collaboration of colleagues at Emory University's Vaccine Center, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and GeoVax.

GeoVax's AIDS vaccines have moved forward in human clinical trials conducted by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) based in Seattle, Washington.

Preclinical work enabling evaluation of GeoVax DNA and MVA vaccines was funded and supported by NIAID, which provided additional support to GeoVax AIDS vaccine development program with a $17 million IPCAVD grant awarded in late 2007.
