Alliqua's SILVERSEAL Wound Outcome Data Presented at SAWC Fall Meeting
Date:10/1/2013

LANGHORNE, Pennsylvania, October 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In a scientific poster session at the Fall 2013 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) held September 27 to 29 in Las Vegas, Alliqua, Inc. (OTCQB: ALQA) ("Alliqua" or the "Company") shared the results from a post-marketing study to assess surgical wound outcomes in patients who have undergone foot and ankle surgery.

In the study, whose results were originally presented at the annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society in July, Alliqua's SilverSeal® dressing was shown to have a lower incidence of incision complications, including infection, and a greater reduction in scar length compared to standard petroleum-based dressing.

The data presented showed that of the nine incision complications observed, eight occurred in patients using the petroleum-based dressing and only one in those using SilverSeal (p=0.03). Length of post-surgical scarring was also reduced to a greater extent in patients using SilverSeal compared to those with a standard petroleum-based dressing.

The data was presented by Garrett M. Wobst, DPM, a Fellow at Coordinated Health in Bethlehem, PA and co-author of the study. Dr. Wobst stated, "In this study, the lower incidence of incision complications and the greater reduction in scar length demonstrate that the inherent properties of SilverSeal may aid in postsurgical incision healing versus conventional petrolatum dressing."

"A reduction in costs and surgical infections are top priorities in healthcare," added Dr. Philip Forman, Alliqua's Executive VP Clinical Affairs. "These data elucidate the extent to which SilverSeal dressings can be a key component in solving these issues. The results from this study are consistent with preliminary findings reported earlier this year and indicate that SilverSeal has the potential to not only improve post-surgical incision healing but also reduce healthcare expenditures that may be related to incision complications."

These results were summarized in an encore scientific poster titled "Utilization of Silver Hydrogel Sheet Dressing on Post-Surgical Incisions: A Pilot Study in Foot & Ankle Surgery" presented at the SAWC Fall meeting by Dr. Wobst. The poster number was CR-090.
