Power3 Medical Products, Inc. (OTC:PWRM)

PWRM, a leading proteomics company focused on the development of innovative diagnostic tests in the fields of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, announced earlier this month that it delivered four poster presentations at the 2010 International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease (NASDAQ:ICAD) in Honolulu, Hawaii. These presentations discussed NuroPro, PWRM's diagnostic test, and focused on PWRM's Alzheimer's disease blood serum biomarkers, test and clinical validation trials.

"In preparation for commercialization, our objective at this meeting was to show how Power3's protein biomarkers and blood tests provide superior solutions for diagnosis and drug response to improve the treatment of Alzheimer's disease," said Dr. Ira L. Goldknopf, PWRM's President and Chief Scientific Officer. "It was gratifying to receive substantial attention to our posters from representatives of major pharma and clinical research institutions from around the world. They expressed surprise and enthusiasm for our findings, especially those relating to the methods by which Power3's protein biomarkers indicate how patients respond to treatment with the three major anti-dementia drugs."

"We are pleased that our blood tests specifically diagnose Alzheimer's in patients, both pre- and post-treatment," said Helen R. Park, MS, Chief Executive Officer of PWRM, "and that our scientific collaborators, Dr. Marwan Sabbagh, Medical and Scientific Director of the Banner Sun Health Medical Research Institute, and Dr. Lourdes R. Bosquez, President of the Woodlands Behavioral Institute, Inc., presented along with us at the meeting in Hawaii."

"We are within striking distance of realizing an Alzheimer's clinical diagnostic tool which I hope will lead to a greater understanding of the disease and buoy the pace of future therapeutic interventions," added Marwan Sabbagh MD, Medical and Scientific Director of Banner Sun Health Medical Research Institute.

PWRM has filed several patent applications for its NuroPro technology that are currently pending. PWRM also has a world-wide exclusive license from the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. To date, PWRM has given 9 presentations on NuroPro at international scientific meetings in the United States, Europe and China, and has published 6 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals on the subject. PWRM intends to publish these latest findings as well.
