Rochester Medical Anti-Infection Foley Catheter Demonstrates Effectiveness in Randomized Trial
Date:9/12/2007

spital acquired infections are urinary tract infections resulting from Foley catheterization.

As further demonstrated by Dr. Stensballe and his colleagues, these serious infections can be significantly reduced by use of our advanced Release-NF(R) technology. Our team at Rochester Medical is working vigorously to ensure clinicians throughout the world get the message about how our nitrofurazone-impregnated Foley catheters reduce infections. Some major medical institutions already are embracing these benefits and using the Rochester Medical Release-NF catheters."

Conway also noted, "Hospital acquired infections are coming under heightened scrutiny, with the aim that increased attention will lead to improvements and solutions. States are legislating that hospitals publicly post data defining their incidence of hospital acquired infections. Medicare recently finalized new reimbursement rules that will eliminate payments to hospitals to cover the cost of catheter-associated urinary tract infections.

"We believe Rochester Medical's All-Silicone Anti-Infection Foley catheters will play a pivotal role in helping reduce these infections. While costs can be significantly decreased, most importantly, serious illness can be prevented. It is very gratifying to continue to see new scientific studies that inform clinicians and reaffirm the effectiveness of our products. Everyone at Rochester Medical is very proud and motivated to be technology leaders in the crucial fight against hospital acquired infections."

This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including the uncertainty of estimated revenues and profits, as well as the uncertainty of market acceptance of new product introductions, the uncertainty of gaining new strategic relationships or locating and capitalizing on strategic opportunities, the uncertainty of timing of private label sales revenues (particularly international customers), FDA and other
