According to the agreement, Spencer and National will develop central nervous disease treatments in the areas of Alzheimer and Parkinson using Spencer's drug delivery as the primary platform. The preliminary agreement calls for a share swap of 20 million restricted shares. The final terms and conditions of the transaction will be determined in a definitive agreement.

"We are pleased to be working with another group in the development of treatments for CNS related diseases. As many current patented drugs are becoming free of royalties, our technology would extend the patent of treatments in Alzheimers and Parkinsons," said Dr. Arella, President of Spencer Pharmaceutical Inc. "CNS disease treatments are one of the areas where our technology can be of use in extending the life of the patents, but we are also investigating many other areas such as anti-psychotic and anti-depressor drugs," further added Dr. Arella.
