Hard to Treat Diseases, Inc. (HTDS) Experiments with Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBO) Traumatic Brain Injury
Date:8/3/2009

BELGRADE, Serbia, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Hard to Treat Diseases, Inc. (HTDS:PK), http://www.htdsmedical.com announced that researchers in its Slavica BioChem division have reported results on experiments in which the potential beneficial effects of Hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) after traumatic brain injury have been explored. These experiments were conducted in collaboration with doctors from the Hyperbaric Medical Center, School of Medicine, University of Belgrade, Serbia.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) has been used as a primary or adjunctive therapy over the last 50 years with controversial results, both in experimental and clinical studies. However, the mechanisms underlying the neuroprotective vs. neurodegenerative effects of HBO treatment are still uncertain.

The results of the research group revealed that repetitive HBO treatments, which started 1 hour after traumatic brain injury significantly, reduced axonal loss and neuronal degeneration, suggesting that HBO was able to attenuate the effects of brain damage by reducing the progression of neuronal injury.

These data indicate that HBO-induced prevention of neurodegeneration might be beneficial in improvement of neurological outcome after traumatic brain injury.

Dr. Sanja Pekovic, Chief Project Scientist, Chief Strategy Officer said (sic) "The experiments were performed on rats, but since we haven't hyperbaric chambers, HBO treatments were performed at the Hyperbaric Medical Center. These data for the first time showed (all was visualized using immunohistochemical technique and specific antibodies to neuronal markers) that HBO prevent axonal loss and neuronal degeneration, since data concerning brain injury are lacking and are controversial. "

Our Washington Poster will be posted on Pink Sheets Supplemental Info Filing as a pdf.

The results were presented by Professor Mirjana Stojiljkovic. (Professor Stojiljkovic is in the process of becoming HTDS Medical Advisor - Officer of the company). In a summary, Poster presentation was available for review by attendees at the 38th Annual Meeting of Society for Neuroscience's (SfN) http://www.sfn.org/am2008/ held Nov. 15 to 19, 2008 in Washington, DC, USA. Professor Stojiljkovic reported that poster attracted numerous scientists and medical doctors, and for close to 4 hours discussion on this topic continued. Each year SfN provides the premier venue for neuroscientists to share research findings. By attending lectures, symposia, and workshops, meeting attendees experience the most exciting and cutting-edge research the field of neuroscience has to offer. SfN's annual meeting draws diverse attendees from all over the world.

In other company news, along with the Washington poster filing the company expects to be in a position to file its Q2 financial results, and an updated Pink Sheets Adequate Disclosure with a legal opinion shortly and perhaps as early as this week.
