Nobel Biocare Fully Agrees and Stays Firm
ZURICH, Switzerland, Jan. 27, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Nobel Biocare fully agrees with the information provided by the Swedish Medical Products Agency in Stockholm regarding the NobelDirect(r) implant: "The visiting clinicians and Nobel Biocare seem to interpret the results and their implications differently." This confirms earlier statements made by Nobel Biocare. "There is no problem with the quality of the product," says Heliane Canepa, President and CEO of Nobel Biocare. "In spite of the international coverage given to the allegations made by the two Swedish professors, we have not received any evidence supporting these allegations. Our own studies and the research we initiated immediately after the allegations show that the 98.3 percent survival rate achieved in clinical trials with NobelDirect(r) implants can be confirmed."

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 26, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- "Biotech investors are funny birds.
