Wall Street News Alert: SWNM's Labguard™ Test to Improve Accuracy of Prostate Screening!

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 5, 2005 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Southwestern Medical Solutions, Inc. (OTC: SWNM), General Electric Company (NYSE: GE), Fannie Mae (NYSE: FNM) and Siebel Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: SEBL).

Aggressive investors and day traders may be excited about Southwestern Medical Solutions, Inc. (OTC: SWNM) again this morning! Yesterday after the markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that it intends to introduce a version of the Labguard™ system to facilitate a simple urine test that could be used as an easy cross-check to the traditional PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test to increase the accuracy of prostate screening.

This could be more good news for investors! The most common screening test for prostate cancer is often inaccurate, leading to thousands of unnecessary biopsies per year. A scientist at Children's Hospital in Boston says he has found a marker in urine that was elevated in all men with untreated or aggressive forms of prostate disease. Men middle-aged and older routinely get blood tests for prostate-specific antigen, or "PSA," to screen for prostate cancer. PSA testing does have shortcomings, however, and many men with elevated PSAs don't have clinically significant prostate cancer and may undergo unnecessary treatments, which can cause infertility, incontinence, and impotence.

Southwestern Medical believes that it has the solution! The company intends to improve upon PSA screening. SWNM's Labguard™ system will facilitate the use of this new screening modality to allow a more effective, less invasive, and less costly solution. In a study conducted by Dr. Bruce Zetter from Children's Hospital Boston, it was shown that thymosin B15 levels were elevated in men with aggressive or untreated prostate cancer, but normal or near-normal levels in healthy men and/or men with other, non-malignant genitourinary diseases. It is proposed that a diagnostic test using the Labguard™ system will enable clinicians to routinely determine elevated levels of thymosin B15. SWNM researchers are proceeding to construct the prototype for this version of Labguard™ that will then undergo testing prior to a market launch.

Investors continue to watch this company's progress! Currently involved in clinical investigative studies for its patent-protected Labguard™ systems, Southwestern Medical Solutions continues to develop exciting advancements in products for the healthcare community. With the exclusive rights to produce and distribute the patented Protect-A-Pal™ safe syringe systems, and its potential entrance into the Hydrotherapy market, as well as disposable surgical devices, SWNM is poised to gain a strong market presence and build a healthy portfolio of high demand products.
