Amerinet adds new 30Ml fill size of Gastrografin to offering of Bracco products

Princeton, NJ , 05/02/2005

Bracco Diagnostics Inc., which develops and markets a number of radiology, radiopharmaceutical and other diagnostic imaging products, and Amerinet, one of the leading health care group purchasing organizations in the United States, today announced that the new 30 mL product fill size of Gastrografin will be included in the companies' previously established product purchasing agreement.

Gastrografin is a lemon-flavored water-soluble iodinated radiopaque contrast medium for oral or rectal administration. It is used for radiographic examination of segments of the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, proximal small intestine and colon). It is also used as an adjunct to contrast enhancement in computed tomography (CT) of the torso.
By offering Gastrografin in a 30 mL fill size, Bracco Diagnostics and Amerinet hope to better accommodate various imaging applications, including CT colonography or virtual colonoscopy. The number of virtual colonoscopy procedures performed annually in the United States is expected to reach 350,000 by 2006.

Amerinet Senior Contract Manager Tom Emmerson noted that there is a demand in CT for unit dose. "Amerinet is pleased to offer the new 30 mL product size to our portfolio of excellent Bracco products," said Emmerson. "This new size will decrease waste and result in overall savings for Amerinet facilities."

The addition of the new 30 mL Gastrografin product fill size follows closely on the heels of Amerinet's decision to add MultiHance® (gadobenate dimeglumine) injection, 529 mg/mL, to its portfolio of Bracco products. MultiHance, which received FDA marketing approval in November 2004, is indicated for use in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the central nervous system in adults.

"We are keenly focused on meeting the expanding needs of the diagnostic imaging market, both in terms of new product development, and reconfiguring existing products in a way that can make a positive value impact on patient management," said Carlo Medici, President and Chief Executive Officer for Bracco Diagnostics. "We are proud to work with an industry leader like Amerinet to help deliver this value to customers."

About Amerinet
Amerinet is one of the most innovative and effective health care group purchasing organizations in the United States, partnering with members to improve their operating margins. Amerinet leads the industry in flexibility with a commitment to providing supplier choice for its members. Amerinet's national network of companies – Amerinet Central, Intermountain Health Care and Vector – has set the standard for customer service for nearly two decades.
More than 1,860 hospitals and 21,000 non-acute care facilities find cost savings and value-added services through Amerinet's comprehensive contract portfolio. Members trust Amerinet to deliver proactive information and integrity.

About Bracco
The Bracco Group is a world leading provider of global diagnostic imaging solutions, with net sales of about $1.25 billion. Bracco has operations in 115 countries and about 3,300 employees, around 600 of whom work in R&D. Bracco invests approximately 15% of its annual turnover in R&D and has a portfolio of 1,500 patents worldwide.
The Bracco Group is a leader in the diagnostic imaging market with an integrated product offering from a diverse roster of subsidiary companies. While Bracco is recognized internationally as a definitive market leader in its core business of contrast media, Bracco also markets key diagnostic imaging resources through the following companies: Esaote, which is one of the world's primary producers of magnetic resonance and ultrasound imaging systems; ACIST Medical Systems, a manufacturer of advanced contrast media injection systems; EBIT-AET, which creates and markets medical application software, and Singapore-based Volume Interactions, which also produces advanced medical software.
Bracco also operates a high-level international research network, with three centers (Milan, Geneva, and Princeton). These centers develop products of the latest-generation diagnostic techniques, from X-ray and computed tomography (CT) to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and echocontrast.

About Gastrografin
It should be kept in mind that serious or anaphylactoid reactions that may occur with intravascular administration of radiopaque contrast agents are theoretically possible following administration by other routes. Patients at increased risk include those with a history of a previous reaction to a contrast medium, patients with a known sensitivity to iodine per se, and patients with a known clinical hypersensitivity (bronchial asthma, hay fever, and food allergies).

 About MultiHance
As with all paramagnetic agents, caution should be exercised in patients with deoxygenated sickle erythocytes.
The possibility of a reaction, including serious, life-threatening, or fatal, anaphylactic or cardiovascular reactions, or other idiosyncratic reactions, should always be considered, especially in those patients with a history of known clinical hypersensitivity or a history of asthma or allergic respiratory disorders.
