NEW YORK and YANTAI, China, April 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bohai Pharmaceuticals Group (OTCBB:BOPH) (OTCQB:BOPH), a China-based pharmaceutical company engaged in the production, manufacturing and distribution of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in China, today announced that during the fiscal third quarter of 2011 ending March 31, 2011, the company added 200 level 2 hospitals and10 new drug store chains to its national network of retail locations in China currently selling the company's Lung Nourishing Syrup. As a result, the company now sells Lung Nourishing Syrup in approximately 1,600 level 2 hospitals and 36 drug store chains across China. 

Lung Nourishing Syrup, one of Bohai's leading products, is a novel formulation of a liquid product similar to cough syrup that is swallowed. Bohai applied for a patent on its Lung Nourishing Syrup for the treatment of Lung Qi Deficiency Cough and Chronic Bronchitis, which was approved by the State Intellectual Property Office of the PRC on June 23, 2010. The patent was awarded for a period of 20 years starting from the day of its application on September 12, 2007. In addition, Lung Nourishing Syrup, together with two other of Bohai's lead products, is eligible for reimbursement under China's National Medical Insurance Program, which enhances the marketability of the product. Bohai believes that demand for Lung Nourishing Syrup will continue due to increasing concerns surrounding respiratory and lung health caused by pervasive national air pollution in China.

"When we became a public company in 2010, we stated that one of our goals was to target 600 hospitals in 100 locations throughout China for direct marketing of our products.  We are extremely pleased that these efforts have begun to show positive results with the strong adoption by hospitals and national drug stores of our Lung Nourishing Syrup, along with other of our TCM products," stated Mr. Hongwei Qu, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Bohai Pharmaceuticals Group.  "We believe the implementation of our sales and marketing strategies represents a validation of the efficacy of our products, and we are hopeful that these trends can continue as we increase market awareness and distribution of our products."
