Medizone International Takes Aim at the Bioterrorism Countermeasures Arena
Date:12/1/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medizone International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MZEI) announced today that in tests involving its proprietary AsepticSure(TM) technology, it continues to break "6 log" decontamination barriers, this time with two very different spore forming bacteria, Claustridium difficile and Bacillis subtilis. These results clearly establish AsepticSure(TM) as an extremely potent sporicidal technology. "The implications of a 6.7 log reduction (99.99997 %) in C difficile are indeed significant for the entire health care system," stated Dr Michael Shannon, Director of Medical Affairs for Medizone. "However, even though our findings for Bicillis subtilis are preliminary, the potential of being able to eliminate 99.999992% (7.2 log kill) of an internationally accepted surrogate for Anthrax in 90 minutes will have national security implications." In response to this news, Mr. Brad Goble, CEO of TDV GLOBAL and a Canadian leader in global health security and bio-terrorism countermeasures commented, "The international community continues to strengthen collaboration in the area of medical countermeasures, including placing a high priority on new and emerging technologies for decontamination. Medizone's early laboratory results with Bicillis subtilis will attract great interest from the global defense and public health portfolios alike." Medizone believes that a field hardened variant of the AsepticSure(TM) hospital unit currently being readied for scale up testing will have wide bio defense applications internationally as it will be easily deployable in response to virtually any terrorist assault, extremely effective against a broad range of lethal pathogens, easy to manage and maintain and most importantly, it has the potential to save lives.

Medizone's CEO Edwin Marshall added, "Following the impressive results recently announced for MRSA, we immediately began to assess the capability of AsepticSure(TM) using
