Corgenix and BG Medicine Announce Supply Agreement for BGM Galectin-3(TM)
Date:12/14/2009

DENVER, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CONX), a worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, and BG Medicine, Inc. (BGM), a Waltham, Massachusetts-based life sciences company, announced today a supply agreement whereby Corgenix will manufacture BGM Galectin-3 diagnostic products in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) microtiter format exclusively for BG Medicine. BG Medicine is seeking regulatory clearance in the United States of the BGM Galectin-3 kit for clinical use in patients with heart failure.

Galectins are a family of proteins that play an important role in organ fibrosis, and galectin-3 has been shown to play an important role in the development and progression of heart failure in animal and human studies. Heart failure is a common, complex, and serious medical condition that affects approximately six (6) million people in the U.S. alone. Once diagnosed, the prognosis is poor, with approximately 50% surviving for more than five years.

"We are extremely pleased to extend our collaboration with BG Medicine to include the manufacturing of the BGM Galectin-3 kit," said Douglass Simpson, Corgenix President and Chief Executive Officer. "BG Medicine is bringing cutting edge technology and science to the cardiology market and we look forward to a long-term relationship."
