 BIOMERICA SIGNS WALGREENS FOR DISTRIBUTION OF STOOL BLOOD TEST KIT
 NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomerica Inc. (NASDAQ: BMRA), has signed with Walgreens Stores to distribute the EZ Detect (TM) product in their 1,700 store chain. Biomerica had previously signed similar agreements with American Drug Stores and Hook Drugs to distribute the product through their 700 and 400 store chains, respectively.
 EZ Detect 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, etc. The revolutionary test requires no diet restrictions and no handling of the stool. The patient simply places a biodegradeable test pad in the toilet after a bowel movement and if excess blood is present, a blue- green cross will appear.
 Cancer of the colon and rectum strikes approximately 155,000 Americans every year and one of every 25 people in the United States will develop colorectal cancer. The incidence of colorectal cancer increases with age, starting at age 40. Colorectal cancer is the most prevalent internal cancer, affecting men and women in almost equal numbers.
 Biomerica is a medical company engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of medical diagnostic products.
