"One of the most important goals in biomedical research is to accelerate the process from discovery to patient care, which is a priority of a number of funding programs," said Dr. Christian Herzog, Managing Director at Collexis. "Collexis is a software company focused on biomedical research. We have already launched the free social networking site www.biomedexperts.com and we are now providing a system which will proactively suggest which researchers should be collaborating across institutions."

"It is important to note," added Dr. Herzog, "that NIH has not endorsed this platform, and that our efforts in translational research are independent. NIH is one of our clients for Expertise Profiling Software, but they are not working with us in the launch of this platform."

The new offering gives Collexis users a unique competitive advantage. It allows a researcher to identify potential partners from their organization and from published researchers at institutions with CTSA grants on any combination of biomedical research topic(s), and it automatically recommends collaborators. Finally, the system will track and identify collaboration patterns among organizations allowing Collexis to give clients more information about how researchers work together and signaling ways the cooperation between basic and clinical researchers and institutions can be improved.

The Collexis Expert Platform for Translational Research approach to profiling life science researchers has become a standard with research intensive institutions. Current clients include Johns Hopkins, the National Institutes of Health, University of Michigan, Oregon Health Sciences University, the Medical College of Georgia, the University of Miami, the University of South Carolina, and over 25 more leading medical research institutions.

About Collexis Holdings, Inc.

Collexis Holdings, Inc., a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina (USA) with operations in Cincinnati, Ohio and Cologne, Germany. Collexis now offers the world's first pre-populated scientific social network for life science researchers, www.biomedexperts.com. Collexis' proprietary technology builds conceptual profiles of text, called Fingerprints, from documents, Websites, emails and other digitized content and matches them with a comprehensive list of pre-defined "fingerprinted" concepts to make research results more relevant and efficient. This matching of concepts eliminates the ambiguity and lack of priority associated with word searches. The results are often described as "finding needles in many haystacks." Through this novel approach, Collexis can build unique applications to search, index and aggregate information as well as prioritize, trend and predict data based on sources in multiple industries without the limitations of language or dialect. Collexis' current clients in the public, private and academic sectors include the Mayo Clinic; Johns Hopkins University; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the University of California, San Francisco; the University of South Carolina; Erasmus University Library; Bristol-Myers Squibb; Lockheed Martin; the World Health Organization; Wellcome Trust; the National Institutes of Health; and the U.S. Department of Defense. Shares of Collexis common stock are traded under the symbol CLXS on the OTC Bulletin Board (OTC BB). For more information, visit www.collexis.com.
