Wellstar/TMI Imaging System Being Utilized in Breast Cancer Study at Duke University Medical Center

HOLLAND, OH--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - Wellstar International, Inc. (OTCBB: WLSI), a provider of specialized diagnostic software and equipment, announced today that the Department of Radiation Oncology at Duke University Medical Center (DUMC) has disclosed its utilization of the Trillenium Medical Imaging system ("TMI") to validate the system's potential to measure the clinical response rates to novel therapies indicated in recurrent breast cancer patients.

According to Oana Craciunescu, the medical physicist for this study at DUMC, "The TMI Medical Imaging System has been implemented since the spring of 2007; the study's principal objective is to examine the system's ability to help clinicians decide if patients are responding to treatment. Preliminary observations of the effectiveness of the Wellstar/TMI system are encouraging, although more data needs to still be collected. The number of patients monitored to date under this study has been minimal."

At the annual meeting of the Society for Thermal Medicine earlier this year in Munich, Germany, Dr. Blackwell, the Principal Investigator of the study, and Dr. Oana Craciunescu presented information on this unique study. The DUMC group intends to publish complete results on this imaging study following the completion of the Phase I trial in early 2009.
