Martek Announces Second Quarter 2008 Financial Results
Date:6/4/2008

- New Data Published on Benefits of DHA - The benefits of DHA

supplementation were recently discussed in several publications:

-- A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

(March 2008) examined visual acuity in infants whose mothers

received DHA supplementation during pregnancy. In this randomized

control trial, pregnant women were either supplemented with 400mg

DHA per day or given placebo during their second and third trimester

and infant visual acuity was measured in the children at 60 days of

age. The results of the study showed that infants from mothers who

received DHA supplementation exhibited a better visual response than

those from mothers who received placebo. Martek's life'sDHA(TM) was

used in this study.

-- A report published in the Journal of Pediatrics (March 2008)

evaluating the role of polyunsaturated fatty acids on infant

development indicated that higher cord blood DHA was associated with

longer gestation and better visual acuity and cognitive function in

these infants. The authors note the importance of DHA during the

third trimester of pregnancy.

-- A study published in the journal Pediatrics (June 2008) evaluated

the effect of enriching human milk with DHA and ARA to be fed to

premature infants. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-

controlled study, 141 premature infants received either an added

32mg of DHA plus 31mg ARA or placebo per 100ml human milk. The

intervention began one week after birth and continued until hospital

discharge (nine weeks on average). The results showed that infants

receiving the DHA/ARA enriched human milk demonstrated better

recognition memory and had higher problem solving scores at six<
