Milestone Scientific Receives CE Mark Approval for Intra-Articular Instrument

LIVINGSTON, NJ--(Marketwired - September 15, 2014) - Milestone Scientific Inc. (OTCQB: MLSS), a medical R&D company that designs, patents, incubates and commercializes a growing portfolio of innovative injection technologies, today announced that its subsidiary, Milestone Medical, has received CE Mark regulatory approval to market and sell its intra-articular instrument in Europe.

Leonard Osser, Chief Executive Officer of Milestone Scientific stated, "Receipt of regulatory approval in Europe for this instrument is validation of our technology and allows our subsidiary to move forward with its plans to commercialize the technology in Europe. Our subsidiary is now in the process of evaluating potential strategic partners to distribute its intra-articular instrument in Europe. We believe we are well positioned to enter this multi-billion dollar market since conventional injections are painful, a problem eliminated with our instrument, and not always efficacious, as doctors often fail to locate the intra-articular space or use inappropriate volumes of hyaluronic acid."

Milestone's injection technology is based on a patented Dynamic Pressure Sensing® system (DPS®), intended to measure the density of body tissue and thus help a clinician know the location of a hypodermic needle during an injection. The system utilizes computer controlled technology to provide real-time feedback to the medical practitioner and identify with precision when a needle has reached the location where a drug should be administered to a patient. It has the added advantage in other applications of controlling the pain that patients typically associate with injections.
