Date:5/15/2008

CLEVELAND, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- JumpStart Inc., the Northeast Ohio venture development organization that accelerates the growth of innovative early-stage businesses and ideas, has announced an investment commitment of $350,000 in CerviLenz(TM), Inc.

CerviLenz is led by Board Chairman Dr. Michael Ross, a Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist and Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, and Chief Executive Officer Dean Koch, an industry veteran who has spent the past 10 years with Adeza Biomedical, the first firm in the preterm birth arena.
