-- Recognition Substantiates Marketability of Propess(R) --

PLYMOUTH MEETING, PA., Feb. 27 (Xinhua-PRNewswire) -- BMP Sunstone Corporation (Nasdaq: BJGP) (''BMP Sunstone'' or the ''Company''), today announced that Propess(R) was recommended by the Obstetrics Group at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Branch of the Chinese Medical Association as the first line treatment for labor induction in late-stage pregnancy.

The Guidelines for Labor Induction in Late-Stage Pregnancy was published in the Chinese Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in January 2008. The Guidelines recommended Propess(R) as the first choice for cervical ripening, and further provided details on treatment dosage and agent-delivery.

David Gao, Chief Executive Officer of BMP Sunstone, stated, ''The recommendation of Propess(R) by the Chinese Medical Association further validates our research that Propess(R) is a leading product which should be effectively marketed to China's healthcare community. With over 421 Chinese hospitals now selling Propess(R), we have received positive feedback from doctors and will continue to educate healthcare providers about this product. Today's announcement certainly helps our cause."

BMP Sunstone started sales and marketing efforts of Propess(R) in China in 2005, after licensing the drug from its manufacturer, Cytokine PharmaSciences, Inc. (''Cytokine''). Known as Cervidil(R) in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Propess(R) is a sustained-release formulation of dinoprostone, a synthetic prostaglandin E2 used for cervical ripening in labor induction. Propess(R) is approved for use in over 50 countries around the world.

Denny Willson, President and CEO of Cytokine, stated, ''The Chinese Medical Associatio
