EDMONTON, March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - BioMS Medical Corp. (TSX: MS), a leading developer in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS), today announced financial and operational results for the year ended December 31, 2008.

"Dirucotide has demonstrated the ability to safely affect MS progression in previous studies and we look forward to the results of the Canadian/European trial (MAESTRO-01) in the second half of this year," said Kevin Giese, President and CEO of BioMS Medical. "Our hope is that the results of this trial will confirm that dirucotide is able to significantly slow the progression of MS, specifically in patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis."

Currently, BioMS is conducting two clinical trials and one open-label follow-on trial of dirucotide for the treatment of secondary progressive MS (SPMS):

        -  MAESTRO-01: On January 22, 2007, BioMS announced that this pivotal
           phase III trial, being conducted in Canada and Western Europe, had
           completed full recruitment of 611 SPMS patients at 47 trial sites
           in ten countries. To date, there have been nine positive safety
           reviews from the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). The primary
           clinical endpoint for MAESTRO-01 (and MAESTRO-03) is defined as a
           statistically and clinically significant increase in the time to
           progression of the disease as measured by the Expanded Disability
           Status Scale (EDSS), in patients with HLA-DR2 and/or HLA-DR4
           immune response genes.

           On August 13, 2008, the DSMB conducted a scheduled interim
           analysis of efficacy and safety and recommended that the trial
           continue to completion. The interim analysis evaluated the first
           200 patients to complete MAESTRO-01 and assessed the likelihood of
           the study reaching
