NEW DIMENSIONS IN MEDICINE ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT FOR CLEARSITE

 NEW DIMENSIONS IN MEDICINE ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION
 AGREEMENT FOR CLEARSITE
 MINNEAPOLIS, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- New Dimension in Medicine (NDM), a wholly owned subsidiary of MEI Diversified Inc. (NYSE: MEI) today announced it has entered into a $5 million, five year, exclusive distribution agreement for ClearSite(R) wound dressing with Paul Hartmann AG of West Germany (Hartmann) for Germany, Austria and selected Eastern European countries. Hartmann is the leading wound care company in Germany and its sales organization is the largest in the hospital, pharmacy, doctor office and nursing home market segments.
 ClearSite is a clear highly absorbent hydrogel dressing which maintains its integrity and clarity throughout the healing process and creates a moist barrier against airborne bacteria. Also, the ClearSite 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 which makes it an ideal burn dressing. Other unique properties of ClearSite are its cooling and cushioning effect on the wound bed that is helpful in improving patient comfort during the healing process.
 The signing of the Hartmann agreement brings ClearSite minimum foreign sales commitments for the next five years to over $12 million. NDM is also currently negotiating agreements for ClearSite distribution in several other countries. NDM estimates the worldwide wound care market to be $2 billion.
 NDM also manufactures and markets ECG monitoring electrodes and electrosurgical products in addition to its ClearSite wound and burn dressing product line.
