Bio-Matrix Scientific Group and Entest BioMedical Sign Contract With UCLA Researcher to Develop Gestational Diabetes Screening Test
Date:4/29/2009

New Screening Test Will Focus on 4.3 Million Annual U.S. Birth Market

SAN DIEGO, April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BMSN) and Entest BioMedical Inc., BMSN's wholly-owned subsidiary, today announced that a contract has been signed with Dr. Brian Koos, a professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA for the development, refinement, and validation of a screening test for gestational diabetes, a glucose intolerance in pregnant women. Dr. Koos is the developer of a screening test for gestational diabetes licensed to Entest BioMedical by UCLA. The screening test mitigates the lengthy process of diagnosing gestational diabetes and would allow for faster treatment of the disease. Entest is the exclusive licensee for Dr. Koos' gestational diabetes screening test. Both companies stated that their goal is to develop a large scale sampling for validation of the screening test with Food and Drug Administration. The gestational diabetes screening test would be marketed to hospitals and medical clinics. The U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services recently reported that there are approximately 4.3 million live births in the U.S.

According to Dr. Koos, "There is a very large potential market for our screening test. Gestational diabetes is diabetes that is found for the first time when a woman is pregnant. Out of every 100 pregnant women in the U.S., three to eight get gestational diabetes. Diabetes means your blood glucose (or blood sugar) is too high. The body uses glucose for energy, but too much glucose in the blood can be harmful. An additional concern is that untreated or uncontrolled gestational diabetes can result in serious problems for your baby, such as being born very large and with extra fat. Such large infants are predisposed to birth injury and to obesity later in life. This non-invasive screening test
