Derma Sciences Announces Commercial Launch of XTRASORB(TM)
Date:10/21/2008

Novel polymer-based super-absorbent dressing will be first of its kind in

US and Canada

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a company specializing in advanced wound care, today announced the commercial launch of its newest product -- XTRASORB(TM) Super Absorbent Dressing. The novel dressing features a polymer-based core that could help change the way clinicians manage heavily exuding wounds, currently a significant issue in wound care. The dressing will be launched at next week's Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care in Las Vegas.

Additionally, the fluid that a foam dressing does absorb is at a high risk of being pushed back onto the wound bed, potentially causing serious complications to the wound. For these reasons, our market research shows that clinicians will love the fact that XTRASORB can absorb roughly 50% more than even the most absorbent foam dressing, and that the polymer-based super-absorbent core forms a gel which locks all the wound fluid inside the dressing and away from the wound. This has multiple benefits, including reducing the risk of wound breakdown due to excessive moisture, as well as keeping harmful bacteria often found in wound fluid away from the wound."

Quilty continued, "Based on our research and feedback from customers, we are extremely confident that we will have another successful product launch. We launched MEDIHONEY(R) Dressings last year at the Clinical Symposium, and w
