BioElectronics Corporation Receives Major Orders From Italian Distributor
Date:5/5/2008

ActiPatch(TM) Chosen as A Safe and Effective Alternative to NSAIDs, Such As

Vioxx(R) and Celebrex(R)

FREDERICK, Md., May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioElectronics Corporation (Pink Sheets: BIEL), the maker of the ActiPatch(TM), a drug free anti-inflammatory patch, with an embedded battery operated microchip delivering weeks of continuous pulsed therapy for a nickel an hour, announced today it has received significant new orders from its Italian distributor, TSS Medical, (Tecnica Scientifica Service). TSS Medical has purchased this additional inventory to meet demand in Italy and other European Union counties. BioElectronics is seeing demand for its product increase significantly in Western Europe, which combined with expanding sales in the U.S. and other countries, is likely to drive quarterly revenues to record levels.

Andrew Whelan, President and CEO of BioElectronics Corp. comments, "These are exciting times for all of us at BioElectronics. We expect demand from Italy to increase over the coming months as the product is rolled out to pharmacies across the country. We have also expanded the relationship with our Italian partner to include distribution to additional areas in Europe for which we have now received an initial stocking order. Many Europeans are very interested in the drug-free nature of our products at a time when NSAIDs, such as Vioxx(R) and Celebrex(R), have been determined to have potentially serious cardiovascular side effects. We believe health consumers with pain and soft tissue injuries will continue to view our proven, state-of-the-art ActiPatch therapy as an effective alternative to pharmaceuticals."
