 BIOMERICA'S EZ DETECT(TM) TO BE USED IN COLON CANCER SCREENING
 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerica Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRA) has announced that a colon cancer screen study in the Columbus, Ohio, area is being conducted by Riverside Methodist Hospitals (a U.S. Health affiliate), utilizing Biomerica's EZ Detect(TM) for stool blood detection. The goals of the study will be to assess EZ Detect(TM) as a device for mass colorectal screening and patient compliance as well as the economic impact of mass screening for colorectal cancer.
 EZ Detect(TM) is an advanced two-minute home test for detecting hidden blood in the stool. The test does not require diet restrictions or handling of the stool which dramatically increases patient compliance.
 More than 24,000 individuals will be participating in the program which should lead to repeat studies elsewhere and begin setting the standard for public colorectal screenings.
 Biomerica is a medical company engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of medical diagnostic products including home self-testing.
