Derma Sciences MEDIHONEY(TM) Helps to Save Patient's Limb
Date:6/18/2008

Used As A Regular Part Of Georgetown University Hospital Arsenal Against

Chronic Wounds

PRINCETON, N.J., June 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a provider of advanced wound care products, announced today that its key product, MEDIHONEY(TM) Wound & Burn Dressing with Active Leptospermum Honey, has been used by clinicians at Georgetown University Hospital's Wound Center to save a patient's limb. The clinicians had attempted to close the 3-year old wound with other devices including very expensive biological skin substitutes and hyperbaric oxygen, but had not been successful due to the complexity of the wound. Upon initial applications of MEDIHONEY, the wound closed 90 percent in only 3 weeks.

Commenting on this particular case, CEO Ed Quilty stated, "Limb salvage is of key concern when dealing with wound care. There are over 80,000 lower leg amputations performed each year in the US preceded by diabetic foot ulceration, with a very high 3-year mortality rate. The type of outcome we see in the Georgetown case confirms what we saw from MEDIHONEY usage in Europe before licensing the product from Comvita. Since its launch here in the US and in Canada, two things are becoming clear; First, the product is being adopted into the formularies of very prestigious facilities, such as Georgetown. Second, the product is being widely used as a first-line of defense for stalled wounds, meaning wounds that have not progressed with standard therapy. Given that almost one-half of all chronic wounds will not progress with standard therapy, we believe MEDIHONEY is well-positioned to be a significant product in the field of advanced wound care." He continued, "helping patients to save their limbs gives all the employees at Derma Sciences incredible personal satisfaction. As is the case with most healthcare companies, the patient always comes first. It has always been our goal to positively impact the
