Vicor Technologies, Inc. is a biotechnology company focused on the commercialization of innovative, non-invasive medical devices and diagnostics using its patented, proprietary PD2i® nonlinear algorithm and software to stratify patients at risk of sudden cardiac death or autonomic dysfunction, and trauma victims in need of immediate lifesaving intervention.

Standard & Poor's Market Access Program is an information distribution service that enables subscribing publicly-traded companies to have company data made available to users of Standard & Poor's Advisor Insight, an internet-based research engine used by more than 100,000 investment advisors. Company information made available through Standard & Poor's Market Access Program includes share price, volume, dividends, shares outstanding, company financial position, and earnings.

"Inclusion of Vicor's data in Standard & Poor's Market Access program increases awareness of Vicor among investment advisors and other populations important to building investor awareness of Vicor," stated Mr. Fater. "As such, it is just one of many tools we're employing to ensure widespread awareness of the opportunity Vicor presents for investors, especially in the current healthcare environment where diagnostics that enable inexpensive, accurate, and early diagnosis to avoid the unnecessary costs of advanced disease and inaccurate diagnosis are garnering increased interest," Mr. Fater concluded.

Company data included in Standard & Poor's Market Access Program is also available via S&P's Stock Guide database, which is distributed electronically to virtually all major quote vendors. It is also published in the Daily News section of Standard Corporate Records, a recognized securities manual for secondary trading in up to 38 states under their Blue Sky Laws.

About Vicor Technologies, Inc.

Vicor Technologies is a biotechnology company creating innovative non-invasive diagnostics employing its patented, proprietary point correlation dimension algorithm (PD2i®).

Vicor currently has three products employing the PD2i® nonlinear algorithm. The PD2i Analyzer™, which has FDA 510(k) marketing clearance, measures heart rate variability; physicians performing diagnostic tests with the PD2i Analyzer™ are able to receive reimbursement under existing CPT codes. The PD2i VS™ (Vital Sign), in clinical trials under a collaborative effort with the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research (, risk stratifies combat and civilian trauma victims.
