Health Discovery Corporation Announces Allowance of New U.S. Patent and Issuance of a European Patent Covering Fractal Genomics Modeling Technology

SAVANNAH, Ga.-(Business Wire)-August 6, 2007 - Health Discovery Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: HDVY) announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its patent application entitled "Method for the Manipulation, Storage, Modeling, Visualization and Quantification of Datasets." Once issued, the patent will be the second of a series of applications covering the Fractal Genomics Modeling (FGM) Technology to issue. This patent covers use of the FGM technology for identifying patterns within a dataset by recognizing repeated data strings within a long sequence of data, then associating each repeated string with a single point within a grid. The points are then used to create a visual map which is capable of graphically representing the complete dataset. The claims of the new patent are not limited to biotechnology applications, but also encompass application of the FGM technology to pattern recognition within other types of data.


Once the USPTO issues the new FGM patent, Health Discovery Corporation will hold the exclusive rights to 26 issued U.S. and foreign patents covering uses of SVM and FGM technology for discovery of knowledge from large data sets. Other issued patents cover methods and systems for pre-processing of data to enhance knowledge discovery using SVMs, analysis of data using multiple support vector machines and for multiple data sets, and providing SVM analysis services over the Internet. HDVY's pending U.S. and foreign patent applications cover numerous improvements to and applications of SVMs including computer-aided image analysis using SVMs, with particular application to diagnosis using medical images, methods of feature selection for enhanced SVM efficiency and biomarkers for colon cancer, prostate cancer, BPH and renal cancer discovered with these methods, and use of SVMs for analysis of spectral data, such as mass spectrometry data used for protein analysis.
