MISGAV, Israel, December 13, 2010 - Stimatix GI reported that the AOS-C1000(TM), a unique colostomy
management device, met primary and secondary endpoints in pre-clinical
in-vivo animal studies. The study was conducted under the direction of Dr.
Ron Greenberg, Senior Surgeon, Department of Surgery, Sourasky Medical
Center, Tel Aviv Israel. Primary endpoints of repeatable stoma sealing for
continence control as well as secondary endpoints regarding tissue pathology
and survival were met confirming the AOS-C1000(TM) as capable of enabling
repeatable colostomy site (stoma) sealing for continence control.

Developed by Stimatix GI (, a privately funded
medical device company focused on continence solutions, the
AOS-C1000(TM) Colostomy Management System is designed to allow individuals to
discretely manage their colostomy without the need to wear a traditional
ostomy pouch. The AOS-C1000(TM) is intended to improve quality of life and
offer an elegant, non-surgical, and simple to use solution for
round-the-clock continence control.

The AOS-C1000(TM) Colostomy Management System hermetically seals
the colostomy site without the use of adhesives, prevents leakage and odor
. Waste matter is stored inside the body eliminating the need to wear a
suspended pouch. As designed, the AOS-C1000(TM) provides the individual
complete control over continence, restoring confidence and improving quality
of life.

With the worldwide ostomy patient population estimated at 1.5
million people, generating $2 Billion in associated expense, there has been
no major breakthrough in colostomy care for over 50 years. The colostomy
site, referred to as the stoma, an artificial opening in the abdomen, is the
result of a surgical procedure in which the colon or ileum is cut and brought
through the abdominal wall. Medical conditions that may require a stoma
include cancer, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease.

"This pre-clinical result is great news for individuals with
colostomies," stated David Hanuka, CEO of Stimatix GI. "Stimatix GI's
pre-clinical results mark a breakthrough in ostomy care, a field that has not
witnessed any major change in more than five decades. People with colostomies
face numerous obstacles including integrating back into society, difficulties
with bag management, and skin irritation. Stimatix GI's vision is to set a
new standard in stoma care and enhance quality of life by restoring control
and confidence to individuals with colostomies."

Stimatix GI is preparing for first-in-man clinical trials to
commence during the second half of 2011 and recently announced that it is
raising $2.6 million towards this end.
