IRDC ANNOUNCES INVENTION

 IRDC ANNOUNCES INVENTION
 MATTAWAN, Mich., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- International Research and


Development Corp. (NASDAQ-NMS: IRDV) (IRDC) and its subsidiary, Carme', Inc., announced today the invention or discovery of a novel non- chlorohydrate-containing antiperspirant composition which relies upon the occlusive effects of a polymer film for its effectiveness rather than the usual chlorohydrate ingredient.
 In sauna testing, compositions of the invention reduced perspiration in excess of 40 percent, and far exceeded the level of antiperspirant activity effected by a group of currently marketed antiperspirant products in comparable test evaluations. When chlorohydrate ingredients are also desired, they may be employed in amounts substantially reduced from the amounts ordinarily employed in antiperspirant compositions of the usual type. As such, this may broaden areas of the compound.
 The company is enthusiastic about this discovery and its potential since the deodorant and antiperspirant market in the U.S. is estimated to be approximately $1.1 billion. IRDC is currently evaluating its position as to whether or not further development and marketing of these antiperspirant products will be conducted through a joint venture or licensing arrangement with an existing major cosmetic organization or through another collaborative effort within the cosmetic industry.
 A patent application assigned to the company and covering the said invention has already been filed.
 Further information will be provided as the development proceeds and additional information becomes available.
