BIOMERICA SIGNS HOOK DRUGS FOR DISTRIBUTION OF STOOL BLOOD TEST KIT
 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerica Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRA) has announced that it has signed Hook Drug Stores to distribute the EZ Detect(TM) product to their 400-store chain.
 EZ Detect(TM) is a simple two-minute home test for occult (hidden) blood in the stool, an early warning sign for colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal bleeding that may be caused by ulcers, polyps, colitis, hemorrhoids, diverticulitis or fissures.
 EZ Detect(TM) is an easy-to-use home test requiring no diet restrictions and no handling of the stool. The patient simply places a biodegradable test pad in the toilet after a bowel movement and if excess blood is present, a blue-green cross will appear. The results are then recorded on a reply card and sent to the doctor for evaluation.
 Annual testing for colorectal cancer for all individuals over 50 years old and in high-risk patients is recommended by the American Cancer Society.
 Biomerica is a biotechnology company engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of medical diagnostic products related to detection of ulcers, prediction of diabetes, Down Syndrome, heart attacks, allergy, neuromuscular disorders, occult blood and other diseases. Through equity interests in several subsidiaries, Biomerica is also involved in (1) the development of unique penetration enhancers for transdermal drug delivery and (2) the manufacture and sales of orthodontic appliances.
