Health Discovery Corporation Announces Agreement with the University of Miami for Biomarker and Pathway Discovery in AIDS related Dementia
SAVANNAH, GA - March 23, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Health Discovery Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:
HDVY) today announced the signing of an Agreement with The University of Miami to use Health Discovery
Corporations proprietary and patent protected Fractal Genomics Modeling (FGM) techniques to identify new
patterns of biomarkers in AIDS Related Dementia. It is hoped that this newly discovered information will
allow physicians to better understand the pathogenesis of AIDS Related Dementia and will assist in the
diagnosis and treatment of this devastating disease.
Under the terms of the Agreement, The University of
Miami has granted Health Discovery Corporation joint ownership on any product, invention, discovery or
new use arising out of or developed by Health Discovery Corporation utilizing its unique computational
"We are honored that our Company was again selected by yet another major United States medical center to
utilize our unique approach to systems biology; this time to discover new patterns of biomarkers and

exciting technology in modern science and takes us into the 22nd Century. I am thankful and excited to
work with Dr. Barnhill and his team at Health Discovery Corporation in this endeavor. They will have a
leadership role in gene expression, bioinformatics and other new methods to defeat disease."

Estimates of the incidence of HIV-associated dementia vary, depending on the definition of dementia being
used. Researchers from the John Hopkins University have estimated that 15% of HIV-infected people may
develop dementia and that 30% may show some signs of neurological impairment (McArthur 1999).
Health Discovery Corporation is a systems biology oriented biomarker and pathway discovery company, which
uses proprietary advanced mathematical platforms, such as Fractal Genomics Modeling (FGM) techniques, to
help identify and characterize diagnostic targets and therapeutic candidates. Focusing on disease vs.
normal, within complex genomic, proteomic and clinical data sets, Health Discovery Corporation was
established to provide pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies with a broad range of analytical and
decision support solutions to accelerate effective diagnostic and drug discovery.
