Pressure BioSciences to Develop Front-end Sample Preparation for Parabase Genomics' Targeted Next Generation Sequencing Testing Platform
Date:7/22/2014

SOUTH EASTON, Mass., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI" or the "Company") and Parabase Genomics ("Parabase"), (together "the companies"), today announced they have entered into a strategic research and development agreement (the "collaboration"). Under the terms of the collaboration, PBI will develop a front-end, sample preparation method for Parabase's enhanced neonatal molecular diagnostics and newborn confirmatory testing process. The sample preparation method will be based on PBI's patented and enabling Pressure Cycling Technology ("PCT") platform.

Each year around 4 million babies are born in the United States, with approximately 400,000 admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit ("NICU"). Roughly 150,000 newborns need at least one single-gene test, since many of the approximately 4,000 identified single-gene diseases present in the first month of life. Early diagnosis is critical so that treatment to prevent mortality or lifelong debilitation can be quickly initiated. Unfortunately, it is difficult to diagnose genetic disease in newborns based on symptoms alone as 80% of cases present with nonspecific or similar symptoms that can have upwards of 160 possible different diagnoses. Serially testing single genes in these cases, which is the current state-of-the-art, can take many months and be prohibitively expensive.

Dr. Andy Bhattacharjee, Chief Scientific Officer and Founder of Parabase Genomics, said: "Parabase uses targeted next generation sequencing ("NGS") to offer comprehensive test panels to diagnose single-gene conditions in newborns. Our goal is to improve the standard-of-care in NICUs by replacing hundreds of currently used single-gene-disorder tests with our LifeTime NewbornDx™ sequencing service to simultaneously evaluate 350 genes representing genetic disorders in the newborn period. We plan t
