Biosign announces successful completion of Glucometry Trial



    TORONTO, March 13 /CNW/ - Biosign Technologies Inc. (CNQ: BIOS) announces
today the successful completion of GAMUT-1 glucometry trial.
    The trial assessed the substantial equivalence of UFIT(TM), a noninvasive
technology, with the laboratory glucose measurement and a top-brand glucose
meter ("test strip glucometer") that requires patients to draw blood. The
results are scheduled for presentation at an international workshop on medical
measurement and applications, organized by the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on May 4th, 2007.
    Biosign will integrate this novel feature into existing UFIT(TM)
monitoring capabilities, according to local market conditions. The plan will
be informed by feedback from another track of the GAMUT study, which is
evaluating the reliability and utility of UFIT(TM) noninvasive measurements
for routine health monitoring and therapy evaluation.
