President, Chief Scientific Officer Keynotes and Chairs Session on November 20, 2009, Meets With Leading Biotech Company, Explores Development and Launch of Diagnostic Tests in Chinese Market

HOUSTON, Dec. 1, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power3 Medical Products, Inc. (OTCBB:PWRM), a leader in neurodegenerative disease and cancer biomarkers and diagnostic tests reports that the company's President and CSO, Dr. Ira Goldknopf, delivered an invited Keynote address and chaired a session on "Biomarkers and Diagnostics in Personalized Medicine (Track 6-4)," at the BIT Life Sciences 2nd International Congress and Expo of Molecular Diagnostics in Beijing, China, November 19-21, 2009. The Theme of the meeting was "New Leadership of Personalized Medicine."

Dr. Goldknopf described the company's unique ability to employ Power3's blood protein biomarkers to differentially diagnose mild Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, distinguish between them, distinguish from normal controls, distinguish from patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's like disorders (disease controls) and distinguish drug naive and drug treated patients. He also presented results for early diagnosis of invasive breast cancer with and without ductal carcinoma in situ, distinguishing between them, distinguishing them from normal and benign controls. The final topic covered was the discovery of biomarkers in bone marrow cells from chronic myelogenous leukemia patients that predict whether they would respond to the drug imatinib mesylate (Gleevec).

"Power3 has begun confidential discussions with a flagship Chinese Biotechnology Company with an eye to co-develop high throughput blood tests for the Chinese market," said Dr. Goldknopf. "We intend to establish a major worldwide presence."

"We are extremely proud and excited about the interest generated by Dr. Goldknopf's presentation of our results at this international meeting," said Ms. Helen Park, Power3's CEO, "particularly the new findings in clinical validation of the company's biomarkers and unique blood tests and the continuing discussions leading to their commercialization in China."
