Date:10/4/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Acorn Acquisition Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: ACAQ), a shell company, today announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Lumen Medical Inc., the owner of 51% of PulmoScience Inc., a development stage biotechnology company that is developing a non-invasive Molecular Imaging technique for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism, Pulmonary Hypertension and Lung Inflammatory diseases under the trade name PulmoBind.

The remaining equity of PulmoScience is shared between Innovacor (a subsidiary of the Montreal Heart Institute) and Dr. Jocelyn Dupuis (the originator of the PulmoBind Molecular Imaging technology).

PulmoBind uses an intravenously delivered radionuclide tagged molecule which specifically bonds to the inner walls of the circulatory system in the lungs, and by the use of an external Gamma Camera allows an image of the integrity of the blood vessels throughout the lungs to be seen by a diagnostic clinician. PulmoScience is currently two thirds of the way through Regulatory Approval for Phase I Human Trials, and while subsequent results from additional tests might not corroborate the current results, PulmoScience believes that PulmoBind has the potential to dominate the market for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Embolism.
