M. Frederick Hawthorne, Ph.D. Honored for Distinguished Service in the Field of Chemistry

EMERYVILLE, Calif., March 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE Alternext: NBY) today announced that world-renowned scientist M. Frederick Hawthorne, Ph.D., a member of the Company's Scientific Advisory Board will be the recipient of the 2009 Priestley Medal, the highest honor awarded by the American Chemical Society (ACS). Dr. Hawthorne, who is co-director of the International Institute for Nano and Molecular Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia, will be presented this award for distinguished service in the field of chemistry at the Spring ACS National Meeting to be held this week in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"Dr. Hawthorne is a world-renowned scientist who has brought his impeccable credentials and expertise to NovaBay," said Dr. Ron Najafi, chairman and chief executive officer of NovaBay. "We are extremely proud and honored to have such a distinguished leader of the chemical community on our Scientific Advisory Board. We congratulate him on receiving the prestigious 2009 Priestley Medal."

The Aganocide compounds have shown in preclinical trials to date to be highly effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi. They have also been demonstrated to be effective against bacteria in biofilm, for which most antibiotics are rendered ineffective. These compounds have a potentially broad therapeutic index providing a high degree of potency, good tolerability, together with dosing versatility an
