"Cytokine Storm" Paper Confirms GenoMed's Approach to Avian Flu

Contact: David W. Moskowitz MD CEO, GenoMed tel. 314.983.9933 dwmoskowitz@genomed.com


ST. LOUIS—November 14, 2005--GenoMed (OTC Pink Sheets GMED), a Next Generation Disease Management company whose business is public health, announced today that its approach to avian influenza was confirmed last week by a Hong Kong research group who found that the avian influenza virus induces a "cytokine storm" in human lung cells grown in tissue culture.

Dr. J.S.M. Peiris and colleagues published last week in Respiratory Research that avian influenza (H5N1) viruses isolated from dead patients cause lung cells to produce many more pro-inflammatory molecules, called "cytokines," than regular influenza A viral strains. This research confirms GenoMed's hypothesis that the host's immune response to the virus is what causes death, not the replication of the virus itself.
