Aresa has achieved to get permission from the Serbian authorities to plant
transgenic tobacco for the detection of explosives 

It is the second time in two attempts that Aresa has achieved to get permission
to plant transgenic plants in Serbia. This time the permission is related to
the recently transformed RedDetect® version in the tobacco plant. 

I am very delighted that we receive the permission now, as it means we can
continue our plans of sowing our genetically modified tobacco for the detection
of explosives from land mines in Serbia this summer, says Steen Thaarup, CEO
of Aresa, and continues: 

We  have now achieved two of the four objectives we set up for 2008, and we
still expect to be able to report a successful color change in tobacco after
growth in soil with explosives by the end of 2008. 

The first objective achieved in Q1 was the successful transfer of the
RedDetect® technology into tobacco, and the second is this permission from

It is still part of the objectives to establish a winter test area in a
subtropical or tropical area to have a longer growth period for the tobacco
plants enabling more results in 2008. 

The content of this message is not expected to have impact on the result for the
current financial year.
