Wednesday January 22, 11:34 am ET
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., Jan. 22, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- BioCurex Inc.

Thus, the product is now available as a ``Staining test for AFP receptors (a.k.a. RECAF) in tissues'' for sale to pathology laboratories across the USA (FDA text available at biocurex.com )
Dr. Ricardo Moro, President of BioCurex commented: ``We are very excited by this ruling since it will allow us to start commercializing Histo-RECAF(TM) in thousands of laboratories in the USA. Also, the FDA ruling and the previously announced notice of allowance by the U.S. Patent office are the two elements required for licensing this technology to other biopharmaceutical companies.''
