China Medicine Maintains Exclusive Rights to Distribute 2,300 Pharmaceutical Products
Date:6/23/2008

GUANGZHOU, China, June 23 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- China Medicine Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CHME; "China Medicine" or "the Company"), a leading distributor and developer of ethical and over-the-counter drugs, traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs), nutritional and dietary supplements, medical devices, and medical formulations in the People's Republic of China (PRC), today announced it has successfully obtained the exclusive rights to sell 2,300 products included in the Company's current catalogue.

The Company won the exclusive rights through an on-line bidding system called the "Guangdong Sunshine Medicine Public Internet Bidding System." The system was established in 2007 by the Guangdong government to help consolidate the provincial medicine acquisition market and to promote a transparent bidding process. Among the 2,300 products that the Company has maintained exclusive rights to sell, four were developed by China Medicine. They include Ozagrel, a powder-injection that is used for treatment of acute myocardial infarction; Bumetanide, an injection used for treatment of diuretic and chronic kidney failure; Levocarnitine, an injection used for the treatment of coronary heart disease; and Ji Xue Gan Pian, a tablet which is used for the treatment of cuts from surgery and skin disease.

"We are excited that we have bid against more than 1,700 medicine distributors nationwide and have maintained the rights to sell over 2,300 products that were already included in our product catalogue," said Mr. Senshan Yang, Chairman and CEO of China Medicine. "We will be selling our products to hospitals throughout Guangdong Province through an online drug sales system."

China Medicine believes that securing and maintaining the rights to sell the drugs previously included in its portfolio will help to increase revenues going forward since the Company has already gone through the introductory phase, which is typically a period of slower sales when new products are advertised and marketed. With the introductory phase complete, the Company can now focus more on promoting existing drugs thereby increasing sales volume. China Medicine maintains a strong reputation in the pharmaceutical industry and an extensive distribution network.

"China Medicine will continue to actively participate in the online bidding system in order to add more products to our portfolio," commented Mr. Yang. "We will also increase our research and development efforts in order to increase our portfolio of self-developed drugs."
