HOUSTON, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Pathobiotek Diagnostics Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PBTK - news; http://www.pathobiotek.com), a developer of products for the diagnosis and evaluation of treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) and other immune disorders, announced today promising results of a pilot study that examined the effect of Pathobiotek's supplemental formula on patients diagnosed with MS and CFS.

Preliminary data obtained from patient surveys and bacterial quantitation indicated a positive effect of Pathobiotek's supplemental formula. This Pathobiotek formula is the result of seven years of research. We observed reduced visual bacterial counts confirmed by RT-PCR quantitation and patient reports of moderate relief of several symptoms.

Pathobiotek's supplemental formula will soon be made available. No claims will be made regarding the efficacy of this new product.
