In March, 2008 the company announced its Contract Research Organization (CRO) exceeded performance expectations over the previous 12 months. ACORN's CRO provides a full-range of research services to sponsors, from clinical trial design to site selection to the results phase with bioanalysis and findings presentation. ACORN's member network provides core strength to CRO operations and is recognized for its exceptional recruitment of minority trial participants at more than double the national average.

With the company's recent announcement that its Oncology Data Warehouse accumulated nearly 50 million data observations from over 110,000 oncology patients in its data warehouse, ACORN(TM) is poised as a leader in providing reliable information solutions to payers, financial institutions, pharmaceutical / biotech companies, and community oncology practices.

Additionally, ACORN's accrual of over one million comprehensive physical and psychological cancer patient assessments obtained via PACE(TM) (Patient Assessment Care and Education) and continued market uptake of Guardian EDC(TM) (web-based electronic data capture) demonstrates its continued leadership in capturing unique electronic data into a single platform for easy access across the full range of data elements and conducting scientific analysis to generate reliable information solutions in the oncology industry.

Analytical data from ACORN's oncology data repository has been presented at many major oncology-related conferences and published in peer-reviewed medical journals worldwide. Furthering the field of oncology health informatics, ACORN's Oncology Data Warehouse has been used in numerous projects that address quality of care, patients' quality of life, overall health outcomes and the cost of care.

Senior-level executives will be available to discuss ACORN's Oncology Data Warehouse, CRO services, Guardian EDC(TM), and network of community oncology practices in Booth # 239 at DIA's 44th Annual Meeting in Boston, MA, June 22-25, 2008.
