Medicago Inc. (TSX-V: MDG.V)

Earns $0.5 million milestone payment from Fortune 100 Company

received a $500,000 payment from an undisclosed Fortune 100 Company for the attainment of an important milestone.

On February 7, 2008, Medicago entered into a second non-exclusive license agreement with the Partner for the development and commercialization of Medicago’s proprietary plant-based production technology.

Under terms of the agreement, Medicago was to receive an upfront payment of $1,500,000 and a payment of $500,000 upon attainment of the above mentioned milestone.

“We are very pleased to have successfully completed our first milestone under this collaboration,” said Andy Sheldon President and CEO. “We continue to make significant progress in the development of our proprietary technology and look forward to additional opportunities.”

Medicago is committed to provide highly effective and affordable vaccines based on proprietary Virus-Like Particle (VLP) and manufacturing technologies. Medicago is developing VLP vaccines to protect against H5N1 pandemic influenza, using a transient expression system which produces recombinant vaccine antigens in non-transgenic plants. This technology has potential to offer advantages of speed and cost over competitive technologies. It could deliver a vaccine for testing in about a month after the identification and reception of genetic sequences from a pandemic strain. This production time frame has the potential to allow vaccination of the population before the first wave of a pandemic strikes and to supply large volumes of vaccine antigens to the world market.

These results demonstrate the opportunity for improving the overall grade of the resource and further confirm zones conducive for making high-grade starter pits, potentially enhancing the economics of this very large silver deposit. Mineralization at Santa Ana remains open in all directions illustrated by the discovery of a significant new drill target with visible silver mineralization on small, colonial era mine dumps located 750 meters southwest of the current resource limits where a third drill has begun testing.
