BioSignia, Inc. Announces Research Agreement with Aurigen Reinsurance Company
Sponsored Research Project to Explore Cognitive Function as Indicator of Mortality Risk

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina – October 10, 2011 — BioSignia, a predictive modeling company providing innovative solutions for the healthcare and life insurance industries, today announced the signing of a sponsored research agreement with Aurigen Reinsurance Company (“Aurigen”), a life and health reinsurance company in Canada. BioSignia will conduct research under a three-month contract with Aurigen that will investigate correlations between cognitive function and mortality.

BioSignia’s Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Guizhou Hu, will serve as lead investigator on the project. “Cognitive function has been found to be inversely associated with subsequent mortality in elderly adults in several clinical studies,” said Dr. Hu. “In our research efforts with Aurigen we hope to further expand the understanding of specific cognitive function measures as an indicator of mortality risk for both elderly and middle-aged populations.”

“Aurigen is excited to collaborate with Dr. Hu and the staff at BioSignia to further our knowledge in mortality risk assessment,” said Bob Brown, Chief Pricing Officer with Aurigen.
