Pressure BioSciences, Inc. Announces Research Agreement With the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID)
Date:9/11/2008

SOUTH EASTON, Mass., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: PBIO) ("PBI" or "the Company") today announced that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). Researchers at USAMRIID have recently shown that the use of the Company's patented pressure cycling technology ("PCT") with patent-pending chemical reagents ("ProteoSolve-SB") has resulted in the simultaneous decontamination and extraction of macromolecules (DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids) as well as small molecules from samples containing infectious pathogens. The purpose of this CRADA is to adapt PCT into protocols for the development of medical countermeasures against dangerous pathogens that endanger the warfighter. The CRADA will allow scientists from PBI and USAMRIID to combine resources, experiences, and expertise to help achieve this important goal.

Dr. Chunquin Li, Applications Scientist for Pressure BioSciences, said: "The decontamination and extraction of biomolecules from samples containing dangerous infectious pathogens for subsequent analysis is essential to the development of improved therapies, vaccines, and diagnostics needed to protect soldiers, emergency responders, and others against possible exposure to biological threat agents."

Dr. Nathan Lawrence, Vice President of Marketing at PBI commented: "Research on dangerous pathogens takes place within specially engineered BioSafety Level (BSL) -3 or -4 suites. A rapid procedure to completely decontaminate macromolecules enables the transfer of samples out of containment suites where further studies are more easily conducted. While traditional methods for dec
