    Toronto, Ontario (August 5, 2003) - Pheromone Sciences Corp. (TSX Venture: PHS), a Toronto based biotech company and the developer of the Fertilit�©- OVâ�¢ monitoring device with proprietary technology in the field of non-invasive fertility and ovulation detection is pleased to announce that it has entered into a long-term definitive distribution and licensing agreement with Ningxia St Edenweiss.

    Under the agreement, Ningxia St Edenweiss, a public company whose shares are traded on China's Shenzhen Stock Exchange (symbol 000982) has obtained marketing and distribution rights for Pheromone's Fertilit�©-OV monitor in China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Ningxia St Edenweiss is a manufacturing and marketing company with well-established relationships throughout the Chinese medical community. Pheromone shall receive upfront, milestone and royalty payments typical of a transaction of this nature.

    Ningxia St. Edenweiss will immediately institute the filing process for Chinese regulatory approval with product approval expected to be complete within 12 months time.

    "This relationship with Pheromone Sciences is a clear demonstration of Ningxia St. Edenweiss's ability and capacity to market new and innovative technologies," stated Ningxia St. Edenweiss Chairman Mr. Hou Yuqian. "We look forward to introducing the Fertilit�©- OV monitor as well as other new medical devices into this growing marketplace."

    "The completion of this agreement represents a significant milestone for Pheromone Sciences while contributing to the health care needs of couples seeking help in conception", stated Christopher Neuman, President and CEO of Pheromone. "We are confident that the Fertilit�©- OV monitor will have an equally positive response in other markets throughout the world.

    The Fertilit�©-OV monitor is a fertility cycle monitoring device for the consumer and professional medical market and provides a reliable "predictive" approach to natural, cycle-based family planning.

    A US based party, previously reported in the notes to the company's financial statements as having provided a non- refundable standby fee has determined that the product is not a suitable strategic fit with their current business model at this time. Efforts remain ongoing with other out-licensing prospects both in the US and other jurisdictions.
