BECKMAN LASER INSTITUTE TO STUDY THE EFFECTS OF LOW LEVEL, NON-SURGICAL LASER THERAPY

 STAFFORD, Texas, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Lasermedics, Inc. (NASDAQ: LMDX), today announced that the Beckman Laser Institute will be conducting clinical tests on the Lasermedics 830 Dental Laser, a non-surgical, non-thermal therapeutic laser device, developed by the company. The Beckman Institute study will examine the effects of laser light at 830 nanometers on the healing of oral mucositis lesions and will determine the feasibility of administering such treatment.
 Oral mucositis frequently occurs in patients who must undergo chemotherapy treatment. Presently, few direct measures can be taken to prevent development or promote healing of mucositis lesions that occur in the patients' mouths.
 The portable, rechargeable Lasermedics 830 produces low energy, infrared laser light that penetrates the skin and deposits photons into the cells, acting as a catalyst for immediate stimulation. Within minutes, micro-circulation is improved, bringing increased blood flow and oxygen to the problem area.
 The Beckman Laser Institute and Medical Clinic, located at the University of California, Irvine, serves as a world center for laser studies. It is designated a "Center of Excellence" for clinical laser programs by the Department of Energy, and a "Biotechnology Research Resource" by the National Institutes of Health.
 Lasermedics has entered into a joint venture with IBI Medical to develop the Oralase(TM), a non-thermal laser device with the same power as the Lasermedics 830, but designed specifically for oral use.
 Lasermedics, Inc., is the technical leader in the development of non-surgical laser devices for therapeutic purposes. General Motors Corporation recently completed a double blind study using the Lasermedics 830 on 160 workers suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. A complete clinical report is expected before the end of the year.
