Kasten/DAKOTA Life Sciences Acquires Commercial Rights to Powerful Prescription Drug, Drug Delivery and Prescription Drug Protection Technologies

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota, December 18, 2017

Kasten Inc. (OTC:KAST) d/b/a DAKOTA Life Sciences has obtained exclusive global licensing and commercial development rights to a First-in-Class cyclic depsipeptide new chemical entity for topical and oral prescription antibiotic therapies against methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA). This transaction culminates eight months of international efforts by the DAKOTA Life Sciences management team to commercialize more prescription drug candidates and related software technologies to combat global antimicrobial resistance.

The drug, named Lotilibcin, is recognized by the World Health Organization and is listed in the United States National Library of Medicine and in the Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) with Registry Number 169148-84-9.

“We believe that the successful acquisition of these valuable proprietary rights to Lotilibcin drug products is a clear statement of confidence in our ability to bring world class prescription biopharma solutions to global markets” according to Steven Keough, the President of Kasten and CEO of DAKOTA Life Sciences. “This acquisition accelerates our Business Plan goal of providing superior prescription pharmaceuticals to worldwide markets that are urgently in need of new medical solutions to diseases,” according to Keough.

Also, the Company’s global drug development team has completed much of the pre-clinical work on the first prescription product candidate using Lotilibcin. That drug product candidate is designed to serve as a front line agent against the medical fight that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describes as a Serious National Threat to the U.S. healthcare system. DAKOTA Life Sciences’ knowledge and experience with wound-care technologies combines synergistically with the potent Lotilibcin formulations in the global challenge against antimicrobial resistance.

“We are very pleased to be part of a new class of antibiotic that kills MRSA more powerfully than any other known drug” added Keough. In the near future, the Company plans to seek the FDA preferred designation of Qualified Infectious Disease Product for Lotilibcin drug products.

As a result of extensive global efforts in 2017, the Company now has a robust prescription drug product development pipeline, as well as development programs using block chain-based technologies for real time prescription drug security to ensure global reliability of prescription drug products. Additional information concerning the proprietary Lotilibcin and other technologies will be forthcoming as the Company rapidly moves to a fully reporting public market status.
