Derma Sciences Enrolls First Patient in DSC127 Phase II Study
Date:11/3/2008

INITIATION OF 75-PATIENT STUDY ON DIABETIC FOOT ULCERS

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI) announced today the first study patient has been entered into the company's Phase II study of its drug candidate, DSC127. Enrollment of the 75-patient study, looking into the drug's ability to accelerate healing in diabetic foot ulcers, is expected to be completed within 12 months. Currently, 4 US facilities have signed on as clinical study sites, with an additional 15 sites pending contract negotiations and internal review board approvals. All sites are based in the United States and include top-tier academic institutions and large, highly regarded wound care clinics. Derma Sciences acquired the global rights to the product and to the patent portfolio surrounding it - for wound care and scar prevention applications - in November, 2007.

Extensive pre-clinical studies have shown that DSC127 - a biologically active angiotensin analog - significantly increases wound healing rates, notably in reliable and validated diabetic animal models. Diabetic ulcerations represent a large and growing portion of the overall chronic wound care market. More than simply a blister on a patient's foot, non-healing diabetic foot ulcerations can lead to a cascade of events including infection, amputation of the patient's limb, and even death. In the United States alone, there are an estimated 2.4 million diabetic foot ulcers and over 60,000 diabetes-related amputations each year. Depending on the study, 5-year mortality rates following a diabetic ulcer related amputation have been shown to range from 39% to 68%. Ulcers are present in 3% to 6% of all hospital stays in which diabetes is listed on the discharge record. The average length of these hospital stays is 59% greater than stays in which diabetes is listed on the discharge record but when an ulceration is not present. In 2001, the financial costs to US healthcare
