MEI DIVERSIFIED SUBSIDIARY TO LAUNCH NEW PRODUCT LINE (Product Announcement)

 MEI DIVERSIFIED SUBSIDIARY TO LAUNCH NEW PRODUCT LINE
 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- New Dimensions in Medicine


(NDM), a wholly owned subsidiary of MEI Diversified Inc. (NYSE: MEI) today announced that it will launch an extension to its ClearSite(R) hydrogel wound dressing product line with it Borderless Rolled Wound Dressing. ClearSite is a clear hydrogel developed by NDM which has several unique properties, including the ability to absorb two to three times its weight in wound exudate while maintaining its integrity and clarity throughout the healing process.
 The Borderless Rolled Wound Dressing has numerous wound applications, including burns and burn donor sites, which require a dressing capable of being wrapped or covering a large wound area. The hydrogel based Borderless Rolled Wound Dressing is well suited for burn care as it provides a clear absorbent moist healing environment while creating a barrier against airborne bacteria. Also, the dressing does not leave residue on the patient and eliminates eschar (dead tissue) from sticking to the dressing which prevents further traumatizing of the wound during dressing changes. Other unique properties of the Borderless Rolled Wound Dressing are its cooling and cushioning effect on the wound site that is helpful in improving patient comfort during the healing process.
 NDM has launched several premarket clinical tests of the Borderless Wound Dressing in major U.S. burn centers and has filed for the FDA 510(k) clearance for this product. NDM intends to launch its new burn dressing on April 1, 1992. NDM estimates the burn market to be $40 million out of an estimated $2 billion worldwide wound care market.
 NDM also manufactures and markets ECG monitoring electrode and electrosurgical products in addition to its recently launched ClearSite wound dressing product line.
