Glycotex Finalizes Collaboration Agreement with Advanced Medical Solutions
Date:10/17/2008

ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Glycotex, Inc. today announced that it has finalized an agreement with U.K.-based Advanced Medical Solutions (AMS) to study the use of GLYC-101 with wound dressings manufactured by AMS.

Through this collaboration, Glycotex and AMS have agreed to an initial phase of testing of the use of GLYC-101 with AMS' wound dressings. Under the agreement, in the event that this first phase of testing gives rise to favorable results, or generates data that suggest further research may be warranted, Glycotex and AMS will have an opportunity to extend their collaboration for the purposes of continued research.

About GLYC-101

GLYC-101 is intended to stimulate and modulate the natural cascade of wound healing activities of several cell populations. The product candidate currently under development is a topical gel to be applied directly on the wound surface. The strategic priorities for GLYC-101 include wound healing following laser ablation, burn wounds, surgical wounds, venous ulcers and diabetic ulcers.

In May 2006, Glycotex completed a Phase II clinical trial of GLYC-101 in Australia, in which GLYC-101 produced a statistically significant rate of wound area reduction versus combined placebo and standard care in patients with chronic venous ulcers. The results provided proof-of concept and dose-ranging information for GLYC-101. In U.S. clinical trials, GLYC-101 is being assessed for safety and effectiveness on wound closure in patients undergoing carbon dioxide laser skin resurfacing.

About Advanced Medical Solutions

Advanced Medical Solutions is a leading company in the development and manufacture of products for the $15 billion global woundcare market.

Founded in 1991 and quoted on AIM, Advanced Medical Solutions is focused on the design, development and manufacture of innovative and technologically advanced woundcare products.

In-house natural and synthetic polymer technology is used to provide advanced wound dressings based on the moist healing principle. AMS' resources ensure a unique position as a vertically integrated 'one stop shop' to provide all categories of moist wound healing products. AMS has the capability to move a product from design and development through to production and delivery for distribution and sale into customer markets.

The acquisition of 49.4 percent of Corpura BV in May 2008 strengthened AMS' position in hydrophilic polyurethane foam -- the largest and fastest growing segment of the advanced woundcare market.

AMS' technology in cyanoacrylate based tissue adhesives is used either for the closure of small cuts and trauma wounds through to large surgical incisions, or for protecting or sealing skin to prevent breakdown or infection.
