Commenting on media coverage of Pyratine-6(TM) and Pyratine XR(TM), Frank J. Massino, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Senetek PLC stated "The high-profile consumer and trade media placements for Pyratine-6(TM) and Pyratine XR(TM) have raised product and brand visibility in the medical community, as well as directly with consumers, increasing product awareness and demand. With additional media coverage slated for early 2009 and an ongoing public relations campaign, we are confident that Pyratine-6(TM) and Pyratine XR(TM) will attain the success we know is possible."
