GenoMed Offers Trial for Influenza and Avian Influenza

Contact: David W. Moskowitz MD CEO, GenoMed tel. 314.983.9933

ST. LOUIS--October 13, 2005--GenoMed (OTC Pink Sheets GMED), a Next Generation Disease Management company whose business is public health, announced today that it has begun Internet-based clinical trials for influenza and avian influenza, since the same treatment approach is expected to work for both kinds of virus.

There is currently no reliable vaccine or treatment for avian influenza. There are antiviral drugs and a vaccine for regular influenza, but they're far from perfect. The yearly influenza vaccine was recently reported to work in only a third of patients.

GenoMed's treatment has been 80% effective in a limited number of patients with West Nile virus encephalitis since 2003. The company is now ready to test it in viral pneumonias.

Any one interested in signing up for GenoMed's clinical trial just needs to go to GenoMed's website (, and then click on "Company News" followed by "Investor Relations/Press Releases" followed by "Presentations" (in the upper right-hand corner). The trial documents are self-explanatory.

GenoMed's broad-spectrum anti-viral approach was specifically mentioned in BioShield II, recently introduced in the US Senate (see Section 2151 of Senate bill S. 975).
