Wednesday, March 8th Stock Trading Alert

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by eLocity Inc.

SARASOTA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2006 -- eLocity's stocks to watch for today are -- Synova Healthcare Group. (OTC BB: SNVH), Martek Biosciences Corp. (NASDAQ: MATK), PDL BioPharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: PDLI), AVI BioPharma, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVII)

Investors, have a look at this company, Synova Healthcare Group. (OTC BB: SNVH). Through its two wholly owned subsidiaries, Synova Healthcare, Inc. and Synova Pre-Natal Healthcare, Inc., Synova Healthcare Group distributes rapid, non-invasive medical diagnostics to retail for over-the-counter use, and directly to health care providers for point of care use in the clinical setting. The company's products are designed to improve human health and quality of life by providing early and accurate awareness of the onset of certain medical conditions.

Tuesday, the company announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Synova Healthcare, Inc., plans to launch a new, easy-to-use at-home test called Fem-V™, a non-invasive diagnostic test developed to assist women in diagnosing vaginal infections, and in determining the most appropriate treatment for these infections. Synova Healthcare said the product will be available later this spring in select pharmacies nationwide.

According to the company, a diagnosis by a qualified healthcare professional occurs in only 30% of cases, but the majority of women attempt to self-diagnose vaginal infections. Citing a Gallup survey completed by the National Vaginitis Association, the company found that 95% of women surveyed had heard of yeast infections, but that only 36% had actually heard of the more common vaginal infection called bacterial vaginosis (BV), which can lead to serious medical complications and health risks, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), and obstetric complications such as preterm labor and low birth weight babies. The company said that there is very little awareness among women concerning the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of these types of infections.

Synova assured that for the millions of American women who experience vaginal infections annually, this easy-to-use at-home test will assist in determining the most appropriate treatment. Test results will help determine if an over-the-counter treatment may be considered, or if they should seek treatment from a healthcare professional.

Synova Healthcare Group. (OTC BB: SNVH) is currently trading at around $2 a share.
