California Approves FLAIR(TM) Strips For Horse Racing; Fifteen States are Now 
Allowing the FLAIR Strip to be Worn

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- California has approved the use of the 
FLAIR equine nasal strip as equipment for race horses, joining Arizona, 
Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, 
Michigan, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia in 
allowing the FLAIR strip to be worn during races.  The New York State Racing 
and Wagering Board has also approved use of the strip, although its use in 
racing has not yet been allowed by the New York Racing Association.

The FLAIR strip, developed and manufactured by CNS, Inc. (Nasdaq: CNXS), 
eases the breathing of horses during racing and other high performance 
events. While the states vary on the amount of advance notice required 
regarding which horses are wearing the FLAIR strip, all have agreed that this 
is acceptable equipment for horses.  In California provisional approval 
allows horses to wear the FLAIR strip in races from March 1 through September 
1, 2000, after which usage will be reviewed and evaluated.

The FLAIR strip helps horses breathe easier and can reduce internal bleeding 
associated with exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH).  "We are 
pleased to see that so many states are embracing a product that we introduced 
in November at the Breeders' Cup," said Daniel Cohen, CEO of CNS, Inc.  "It 
is a drug-free product designed to promote the health and welfare of 
performance horses."

Clinical trials testing the FLAIR strips were conducted at Kansas State 
University.  The trials indicated that horses wearing the FLAIR nasal strip 
used 5% less energy at high speed and during recovery.  The strips can also 
reduce the amount of internal bleeding caused by EIPH.  This finding is 
especially important in the racing world because EIPH affects most racehorses.

The FLAIR equine nasal strip can be ordered over the phone by calling 
888-68FLAIR (888-683-5247).

CNS, based in Minneapolis, designs, manufactures and markets consumer 
products, including the Breathe Right(R) nasal strip.  The Breathe Right 
strip improves nasal breathing.  It can provide temporary drug-free relief of 
nasal congestion due to colds and allergies, and of breathing difficulties 
due to a deviated septum, and can be effective in eliminating or reducing 
snoring. More information is available on the Internet at:
