CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Procyon Corporation (OTCBB: PCYN), a Clearwater, Florida-based company whose subsidiaries include Amerx Health Care Corporation -- w.w.w.Amerigel.com -- today announced that the recently published "Podiatry Management 25th Annual Survey" of podiatrists places Amerigel® at the top of two lists regarding physician recommended treatment products. D.P.M.'s from around the nation were asked to respond to survey questions to determine industry trends.

According to the Annual Survey, Amerigel® was ranked as the #1 topical dressing of choice following matrixectomy for the 5th consecutive year. Amerigel® Wound Dressing represented a definitive lead over other topical dressings recommended for post-matrixectomy treatment with 45% of the respondents reporting it as their first choice for treatment, a 17% increase over the previous year's percentage. Amerigel® was named the treatment of choice by more podiatrists than all the other name brands that were included in the survey combined.

Amerigel® Wound Dressing was also ranked as the #1 product recommended for non-graft treatment of wounds and ulcers for the second straight year. Twenty-three percent of the respondents reported that they recommended Amerigel® for non-graft wound/ulcer treatments, an 8% increase over the previous year's response.

Amerigel® products carry the APMA Seal of Approval. Amerigel® products are made with a proprietary product rich with natural tannins, known as Oakin®. Oakin®, exclusive to the Amerigel® product line, delivers these known benefits to patients in need of solving skin and wound problems.
