 KODAK ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT
 OF TEST FOR PERIODONTITIS
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) today announced in Germany that it would market a chairside testing device for monitoring periodontitis.
 Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease of the tissues surrounding the teeth. The test will be marketed under the name Evalusite periodontal test in several European countries and Canada starting in September. Approval to market the device in the U.S. will be sought from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) upon completion of clinical trials.
 "This product is another step toward our objective to broaden Kodak's participation in the dental marketplace beyond our traditional x-ray imaging products," said Lance F. Drummond, general manager and vice-president, Kodak Dental Products. "It demonstrates our commitment to develop and market a wide range of products which meet the needs of the dental professional."
 Kodak is the largest manufacturer and distributor of medical and dental x-ray film products in the world. In 1990, Kodak Dental Products began marketing the Cook-Waite brand of oral anesthetics. In 1991, Kodak announced the availability of Kodak ClinAsept products for infection control in the dental office.
