SpectraScience Announces Business Update
Date:1/26/2009

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SpectraScience, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SCIE), a San Diego-based medical device company, today provided an update on the status of its business.

Jim Hitchin, SpectraScience's CEO, said, "Despite a challenging economic environment, we continue to make progress on all business fronts. We understand, however, that amidst the widespread uncertainty in the markets, it is important to provide our shareholders with a greater level of knowledge about our business. I want to emphasize that our business remains positive in 2009 - in fact, more than at any other point in our operating history.

"In 2008 the Company evolved from research and development to revenue generation. Orders and shipments of our cancer detection products to customers in both the United States and Europe continue. New distributors have been established and we continue to seek new dealer partners worldwide.

"We continue to gather data on the use of our WavSTAT(R) to detect pre-cancers of the esophagus. This type of cancer is growing six times faster than all other solid tumor types. The purpose of this final trial is to obtain data to satisfy the FDA in a planned market approval filing. We believe that we will achieve FDA approval within the next several months. One factor that limits our timing predictability to submit this data to the FDA is the speed of each center's ability to enroll qualified patients. Ultimately, when and if we receive FDA approval, we believe that we will be able to meet the demands of the GI marketplace in the US.

"Spectra Science has achieved an important milestone. It received CE Mark approval to sell its esophagus pre-cancer diagnostic device internationally. With this approval, we expect an acceleration of our revenue and cash flow. We believe this will follow a normal sales development schedule which includes the establishment of distributors, demonstration unit exposure to our potential customers, budget submittal and eventual orders.

"These accomplishments will allow us to share our story with a wider audience of future shareholders in our success. With the help of our public relations partner, Hayden Communications, we intend to visit all relevant fronts of communication to existing and new investors. The cancer diagnostic marketplace is expanding like no other time in history. We want to communicate this to our shareholders and other interested parties as we look to grow our business and, consequently, increase our capital base.

"Our cash position remains stable with no debt. I believe we are on a sound foundation as we continue to grow SpectraScience."
