- Strengthening the Clinics in the Bonn area - High technology examination procedures established

Bonn, 21. January 2002. With the purchase of the pharmaceutical company Westdeutsche Cyclotron GmbH (WCG) in Bonn, MediClin AG integrated a manufacturer of state-of-the-art medical products into the services it provides. WCG was initially engaged in the production and development of radio-pharmacological products necessary for nuclear-medical diagnostics. WCG generated sales of Euro 3.2 million in 2001.

WCG, located in Bonn, is primarily specialized in the production of substances used in positron-emission tomography (PET). PET is a promising procedure that permits exact and early identification of initial carcinomas and metastases, and also of cardiological and neurological conditions with only very little stress involved for the patient. Experts estimate that PET will in future be established as a standard procedure in patient care at leading medical institutions.

This examination procedure is part of the diagnosis spectrum of the Robert Janker Clinic in Bonn, a clinic specializing in radiology; the clinic, an institution of MediClin AG, is engaged in the treatment of carcinosis, vascular diseases and rachiopathy in particular. The field of nuclear medicine is one of the specialist areas of growing significance here.

With the acquisition of Westdeutsche Cyclotron GmbH, MediClin AG continues its investments in the future market of high technology medicine and in the concept of regional networking of high performance facilities. Mediclin"s aim is to provide optimal treatment for its patients in both medical and economic terms. MediClin is certain that this aim can be achieved through close coordination between all necessary services of modern medicine.
