Date:9/6/2007

TORONTO, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Predictive medicine company PreMD Inc. (TSX: PMD; Amex: PME) today announced that it has received questions from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding its 510(k) application for an expanded regulatory claim for its POC skin cholesterol test.

PreMD believes the specific matters raised by the FDA are fully addressable and the Company plans to submit a response within the alloted timeline of 30 days.

"Receiving questions from the FDA is a common part of the regulatory process," said Brent Norton, president and chief executive officer of PreMD. "Based on our current information and analysis, we plan to provide the FDA with the information they requested within 30 days. We are confident that we are on the path towards expanded regulatory clearance."
