Biomerica receives CE mark approval for 15-minute home test for ulcer screening

Newport Beach, California – August 7, 2007 -- Biomerica, Inc. (OTC BB: BMRA) announced that it received CE mark approval for its 15-minute home diagnostic test for detecting Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a bacterium responsible for over 85% of ulcers.  The one step test can now be marketed directly to consumers through drug stores in the European Union. 
Epidemiological studies have shown that the H. pylori infection is widespread, affecting over one billion people worldwide.  It has been shown that nearly all duodenal ulcer patients and over 80% of stomach ulcer patients are infected with the bacterium.  The disease affects both men and women.  In addition to peptic ulcer disease, H. pylori infection has also been shown to be a significant risk factor for stomach cancer. 
“This regulatory approval allows us to now sell our product to consumers throughout Europe,” said Zackary Irani, CEO Biomerica.   “We are already in discussions with several significant distributors.”
Biomerica’s home test, which will be marketed under the trade name “FORTEL H.P. Ulcer Test”, is a simple fifteen-minute test that individuals can perform in the privacy of their own home.  The test utilizes an advanced technology that requires only a drop of a patient’s blood. 
It is estimated that the worldwide anti-ulcer market is over $9.5 billion.  The FORTEL H.P. Ulcer Test is a part of BIOMERICA’s line of easy to use tests designed to detect diseases before they become catastrophic, incurable or costly to treat.
