Corgenix Announces FDA Clearance for IgG Anti-AtherOx(R) Test Kit
Date:4/10/2008

Next generation test for individuals with systemic lupus erythematosus and

lupus-like disorders expands Corgenix' extensive portfolio of

antiphospholipid products

DENVER, April 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CONX) announced receipt of 510(k) clearance by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Company's IgG Anti-AtherOx(R) Test Kit. This new laboratory test, now available worldwide, utilizes the Company's patented AtherOx(R) technology to detect antibodies in individuals with important autoimmune diseases.

Research data presented at several medical and scientific meetings has shown the association of antibodies to the AtherOx (R) complex with vascular thrombosis (particularly arterial thrombosis) in patients with autoimmune diseases. Studies published in The Journal of Clinical and Developmental Immunology (2003) and The American Journal of Pathology (2004) showed that by testing serum samples from lupus patients for a series of risk factors, it was concluded the measurement of the AtherOx(R) antibody was significantly better than conventional anti-cardiolipin testing in identifying patients with vascular complications, and illustrated a pivotal role of B2-glycoprotein I (B2GPI) in vascular injury and thrombosis.

"This test will be an important addition to our other phospholipid products currently used worldwide by physicians to identify patients with thrombosis-associated antibodies," said Luis Lopez, M.D., Corgenix' Chief Medical Officer. "It provides vital clinical information for physicians treating individuals with SLE and antiphospholipid syndrome, both of which are very important clinical problems."

Douglass Simpson, Corgenix' President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are pleased to receive FDA clearance for this important product. Corgenix has a long history of developing and bringing to market innovative products for
