Yes, you can use iTextSharp (http://itextsharp.sourceforge.net) for manipulating PDF files from .NET.
In this URL: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cs/PDFToText.aspx
you can find a fully-working code for extracting the text from PDF file, which uses iTextSharp.
Altough is in C#, you can compile it as a library and use it on your VB.Net project.
