Swiss Medica Continues To Receive International Attention For O24 Fibromyalgia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 8, 2006) - Swiss Medica, Inc. (OTCBB:SWME) announced today that international recognition continues to grow for its patented, all natural and clinically tested product O24 Fibromyalgia, with official approval by the Fibromyalgia Support Group Surrey & Sussex in the United Kingdom.

O24 Fibromyalgia is the first clinically-tested product available in national pharmacies to help patients fight the intense, debilitating pain caused by Fibromyalgia.

O24 Fibromyalgia was launched in late 2005 in the United States when the product was awarded the first ever Seal of Approval from the California-based National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA). Upwards of 11 million Americans suffer from this debilitating chronic ailment.

Similar recognition for O24™ Fibromyalgia was received by the FM-CFS (Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) of Canada late last year, the group representing Fibromyalgia patients in Canada.

In early 2005, Swiss Medica conducted research, which involved a double blind clinical trial by Dr. Gordon Ko (Head, Fibromyalgia Clinic) and Dr. David Berbrayer (Head, Dept. Rehabilitation Medicine) at Sunnybrook & Women's Health Sciences Centre (University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada). This clinical trial demonstrated that 88% of the patients using the O24™ Fibromyalgia product reported mild to markedly better improvement on the 7-point Lanier rating scale, versus only 7% who used the placebo. A copy of Dr. Ko's study is available for review at http://024zone.com/Clinicals.html

Swiss Medica also announced today that Raghu Kilambi, Swiss Medica's Co-Founder and CEO, has recently purchased 575,000 Class A common shares of Swiss Medica on the open market and through the exercise of stock options. Mr. Kilambi has purchased, since May 30th, 425,000 shares of Swiss Medica common shares on the open market and has purchased 150,000 shares by exercising stock options.
