Date:9/24/2009

SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Axial Biotech, Inc., a company personalizing spine care through the development of molecular diagnostics, announced today that its SCOLISCORE(TM) AIS Prognostic Test is now being made available to spine specialists in the United States. SCOLISCORE is a saliva-based genetic test designed to predict the risk of progression of scoliosis, an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. Spine surgeons from 40 medical centers throughout the U.S. were introduced to the test and have been defining its clinical use since December 2008. DePuy Spine, Inc. will market the test for Axial and will feature SCOLISCORE at the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) Annual Meeting taking place this week.

One hundred thousand children are diagnosed with scoliosis every year in the U.S. and must be followed on a consistent, often quarterly basis, to determine and assess disease progression. The SCOLISCORE Test is designed for male and female patients diagnosed with Mild (10-25 degree Cobb Angle) Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) who are from 9 through 13 years of age, and who are self-reported as Caucasian (North American, South American, European, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, Southwest Asian Descent).

"The SCOLISCORE Test, along with other diagnostic testing and clinical examination, enables the physician to confidently recommend a personalized treatment regimen for each patient at the first sign of the disease," said John Climaco, president and chief executive officer of Axial Biotech. "SCOLISCORE and other tests in our product pipeline have the potential to completely transform treatment paradigms and ultimately to lead to improved and more efficient patient care."

The development of the SCOLISCORE Test required more than six years of development by Axial researchers and involved DNA samples collected from more than 9,500 individuals at more than
