Healthnostics Launches Post-Genomics Blog for MedBioWorld

BETHESDA, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 6, 2005 -- Healthnostics, Inc. (OTC: HNST), a clinical information system and medical and bioscience informatics company, today announced the launch of Post-Genomics, the new blog from Healthnostics' portal, MedBioWorld (http://www.MedBioWorld.com). Written by eminent scientists and researchers in the post-genomics fields, the Post-Genomics blog is the first resource of its kind that aims to facilitate a connection between the theoretical, research-based work in post-genomics and the clinical side of its application.

The pieces on MedBioWorld's Post-Genomics blog are authoritative, timely, informative and conversational in tone. They focus on different aspects of the post-genomics area of study--from defining and explaining the derivations of genomics,' such as glycomics and lipidomics, to describing efforts for establishing standards in these areas, to raising concerns that perhaps were overlooked in the excitement of new developments. Both bioscience researchers and medical professionals who are not intimately familiar with current work in this field but who are now encountering its application in their offices and hospitals will benefit from MedBioWorld's Post-Genomics blog.

"The scientists and researchers contributing to this post-genomics blog are of the highest caliber," said Alexa Hackbarth, creative director of Healthnostics, Inc. "We're very excited about the dialogue and discussions this blog will evoke among our professional MedBioWorld user community.''

Further information concerning becoming a contributor can be found on the blog's site under "Become a Contributor" (http://www.MedBioWorld.com/postgenomics_blog).
