National Fibromyalgia Association and Swiss Medica form strategic alliance to launch 024™ pain reliever specifically formulated to treat fibromyalgia

National Fibromyalgia Association and Swiss Medica form strategic alliance to launch 024™ pain reliever specifically formulated to treat fibromyalgia ORANGE, Calif. – June 3, 2005 – The National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA), the largest nonprofit organization for people with fibromyalgia, today announced its strategic partnership with Swiss Medica, Inc. (OTCBB: SWME.OB), a manufacturer and distributor of patented and clinically approved over-the-counter natural health products, to help launch the company’s O24™ pain reliever, the first specially formulated product for sufferers of the chronic pain illness to be sold at retail outlets throughout North America. The 024™ pain reliever is also the first product of its kind carrying the NFA’s official Seal of Approval. As part of the alliance with Swiss Medica, the NFA will receive a percentage of the proceeds from sales of 024™. Fibromyalgia, a common and chronic disorder characterized by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points, affects between 6 million and 10 million Americans, according to expert estimates. The National Fibromyalgia Association estimates that 3% to 6% of the U.S. population has fibromyalgia. Said Lynne Matallana, president and founder of the National Fibromyalgia Association, “We are very pleased that Swiss Medica has developed a product that has been clinically shown to be effective for fibromyalgia pain, and is also committed to helping support patient service programs and future research implemented by the NFA to directly benefit the fibromyalgia community.”. Product Launch The launching of 024™ is scheduled for June 6 at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Marketplace 2005 Conference and exhibition in New Orleans. Matallana will join Swiss Medica executives who will unveil the results of a randomized double blind clinical trial which compared the O24™ pain reliever against a placebo on patients suffering from fibromyalgia. In the pilot study of 153 fibromyalgia subjects conducted over a 4-6 week period, 133 participants (87%) completed the study with 68 (51%) using a placebo. The other 65 (49%) used the O24™ product. Assessments of these participants were carried out at multiple community clinics in the Greater Toronto Area. The group treated with O24™ showed statistically significant improvement when measured on the Visual Analog Scale for pain, according to reports. About Swiss Medica Inc.

I am so happy that there is an international attack on the symptoms of fibromyalgia

. This is a world wide disease. It is logical that a treatment will involve a world wide effort.
