ATRIX INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

 MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Atrix International, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATXI) today reported its results of operations for the second quarter ended Dec. 31, 1992.
 For the three months ended Dec. 31, 1992, Atrix reported net increased sales to $995,810 from net sales of $952,779 for the same period in the prior year. The company reported a net loss of $175,917, or $.03 per share, for the three months ended Dec. 31, 1992. This compares with a net loss of $129,266, or $.03 per share, for the same period one year ago.
 For the six months ended Dec. 31, 1992, net sales increased 30 percent to $2,271,351 compared to net sales of $1,753,856 for the same period in the prior year. The company reported a net loss of $148,654, or $.03 per share, for the first six months of fiscal 1993. This compares with a net loss of $336,609, or $.08 per share, for the same period one year ago.
 The current fiscal year includes patent amortization and patent litigation charges totaling $72,000 for the second quarter and $114,000 for the first six months which were not incurred in the prior year. Other major expenses were down from the prior year as a result of the cost reduction program initiated in December 1991.
 Atrix President and COO Steven D. Riedel said, "Our second quarter results were lower than expected and were due in part to reductions in European sales and a longer selling cycle for the R3 telemetry products. Our third and fourth quarters are usually stronger than the first and second quarters. While legal expenses to pursue our patent infringement litigation are uncertain to the end of the year, we are working hard to improve sales and gross margin."
