(PRWEB) September 1, 2006 -- The International Organization of Zerophiliacs LLC (“IOZ”) today announced receipt of a major research grant from the Epstein-Wilshire Social Research Institute ("EWSRI").
“ Funds will transfer immediately into an US currency escrow account as a safeguard against any further slide in the value of the dollar against the Eur... ”
“We are enormously grateful to the Institute for supporting our work and this comes at a key time,” says S. Alzercan, spokesman for IOZ Laboratory Services. "Demand for our testing services has increased exponentially in recent months. This generous grant enables us to expand our research and continue offering our testing service at no cost to the general public."

fellowships, grants and scholarships, often stepping in with funding for endeavors other sources deem too controversial. Recent EWSRI grants provide key support for the Genetic Policy Organization, the Tidees Foundation and Dignity with Death.
In an EWSRI statement, Dr. Epstein and Mr. Wilshire said "We have great faith in Dr. Ptolemy's talents and are pleased to offer this support. Our review of the impressive success of the Department of Neuromorphology at the Slovak Academy of Sciences (INB SAS)
, coupled with the IOZ's recent FDA filing, conclusively demonstrate Dr. Ptolemy's ability to lead this important research effort in America."
EWSRI spokesman placed the value of the grant (Euro 2,500,000) at approximately US $3,206,250. "Funds will transfer immediately into an US currency escrow account as a safeguard against any further slide in the value of the dollar against the Euro."
The Z-Chromosome has been identified in a wide variety of mammals, including marmoset and tamarin monkeys, but only more recently in humans. The International Organization of Zerophiliacs recently filed with the FDA for clearance of its assay to detect the presence of the Z-Chromosome in human DNA at a fraction of the cost of direct DNA analysis.
The prevalence of a latent Z-Chromomsome among the general U.S. population is unknown, but there is growing evidence that it may be present in as many as ten to twelve percent of U.S teens and young adults aged 13-28. The Z-chromosome is currently undetectable prior to the onset of puberty and becomes active only with sexual activity. A stated goal of the IOZ is to gather accurate statistical data on the prevalence and demographic distribution of Zerophiliacs in North America.
The International Organization of Zerophiliacs formed in May, 2003 by a group of private doctors and research scientists, "to combat the irrational fears and misinformation regarding presence of the Z-chromosome and to serve as a key resource for study of Zerophilia." It quickly established itself as the leading research institute and resource for information regarding Zerophilia worldwide. In June of 2004, under the direction of renowned Czech Neuromorphologist, Czierny Ptolemy, the IOZ opened its Laboratory Services offering free Z-Chromosome testing to the general public.
