    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Board of
 Directors of Protalex, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   PRTX) announced today their
 selection of a new President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Steven H. Kane,
 of New Hope, PA.
     Kane comes to Protalex with over 23 years experience in the health care
 industry.  Most recently he was Vice President of North American Sales & Field
 Operations for Aspect Medical.  While at Aspect he guided the company through
 12 quarters of successive growth resulting in a successful IPO in January
 2000.  Prior to Aspect, Kane was Eastern Area Vice President for Pyxis
 Corporation, where he was instrumental in positioning the company for its
 successful IPO in 1992.  Pyxis later was acquired by Cardinal Health for
 $1 billion.
     Of the Protalex opportunity, Kane said; "Protalex is a company that is on
 the cutting edge of research and development in the treatment of a variety of
 autoimmune diseases, most notably Rheumatoid Arthritis.  I feel fortunate to
 be joining a team that I consider to be of the highest caliber in the
 industry, and I am confident that Protalex will evolve as the leader in the
 emerging field of BioRegulation."
     Board member and outgoing CEO, John E. Doherty added, "We are extremely
 gratified that Steve has agreed to come on board at this critical time.  His
 skills and experience will be invaluable as the Company makes the transition
 from development through regulatory approval to production and marketing of
 our first BioRegulator drug for Rheumatoid Arthritis."
