Trading

July 8, 2008.
    It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is 
a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of 
VMT Scientific, Inc. (``VMT Scientific'') because of questions 
regarding the accuracy of assertions in press releases concerning, 
among other things: (1) The legal status of VMT Scientific; (2) VMT 
Scientific's business combinations; (3) VMT Scientific's current 
financial condition; and (4) VMT Scientific's assets.
    The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the 
protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the 
securities of the above-listed company.
    Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to section 12(k) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the above listed 
company is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT, July 8, 2008 
through 11:59 p.m. EDT, on July 21, 2008.
