Health Sciences Group Receives Patent on Its Cold & Flu Formulation

Expanding Suite of CoCare Products Expected to Address Multibillion Dollar Healthcare Market

LOS ANGELES, Sep 30, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Health Sciences Group, Inc. (HESG), an integrated provider of innovative, science-based products and ingredients to customers in the nutrition, skin care, and food and beverage industries, announced today that it has received a patent for its combination over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceutical-nutraceutical cold & flu formulation. This patent is the latest addition to the Company's growing portfolio of innovative CoCare(TM) products.

"We are delighted to have received our third CoCare(TM) patent," said Fred E. Tannous, Health Sciences Group Co-Chairman and CEO. "We believe our expanding suite of patented CoCare(TM) formulations, including this latest treatment for cold & flu, represents significant market potential for Health Sciences Group in the multibillion dollar healthcare market. Since each CoCare(TM) formulation features the benefits of a well-known OTC pharmaceutical ingredient in combination with safe and effective nutraceuticals, we expect CoCare(TM) products to resonate with an established and knowledgeable customer base which can lead to a rapid market penetration and significant sales growth."

The CoCare(TM) cold & flu patent represents an improved medicinal composition which includes an effective pain relieving and anti-inflammatory pharmaceutical ingredient, such as aspirin (i.e., Bayer(R)), acetaminophen (i.e., Tylenol(R)), or ibuprofen (i.e., Advil(R)) combined with effective nutraceutical ingredients, such as green tea, Astragalus root, and elderberry in a pharmaceutically acceptable base. This combination provides the benefits of trusted OTC medicines and the positive health benefits offered by nutritional supplements.

The Company has applied for a series of patents on unique combinations of OTC pharmaceutical and nutraceutical ingredients and is in the process of seeking a licensing arrangement with a strategic partner for production, marketing and distribution of its CoCare(TM) product line. Other patents pending include compositions and methods for the treatment of acid reflux, migraine headaches and everyday pain relief.
