ULURU Inc. Announces Altrazeal(TM) Clinical Experience Published in the International Wound Journal
Date:5/5/2009

ADDISON, Texas, May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ULURU Inc. (NYSE AMEX: ULU) announced today that clinical evidence utilizing Altrazeal(TM) Nanoflex Transforming Powder Dressing has been published in the respected peer-reviewed publication, International Wound Journal. The article, which is the first peer-review publication detailing clinical experience using Altrazeal(TM), was authored by a team of clinicians and scientists working at Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance ("SALSA") at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, located in Tucson, Arizona.

The article is titled, "Use of a Nanoflex(TM) powder dressing for wound management following debridement for necrotizing fasciitis in the diabetic foot." The article details the treatment of a diabetic patient with a complex wound that requires multiple debridements and several different treatment modalities. The article reports that the patient was transitioned to Altrazeal(TM) following both negative pressure wound therapy and debridement of necrotic tissue. Observations in the article noted that the patient experienced decreased pain associated with wound dressing changes during weekly treatments using Altrazeal(TM), while new wound bed formed. During the treatment regimen, it was also noted that a large soft-tissue defect within the wound filled in with new granulating tissue while the Altrazeal(TM) dressing was pushed free of the hole.

Commenting on the publication, David Armstrong, DPM, PhD, co-author of the publication and Professor of Surgery and Director of SALSA stated, "We believe this technology to be potentially promising with a good deal of clinical versatility."

Renaat Van den Hooff, President and Chief Executive Officer of ULURU, commented: "We are pleased that the team at University of Arizona was the first to publish clinical evidence on the use of Altrazeal(TM) in a clinical setting. We believe this publication to be the first of many detailed scientific publications on Altrazeal(TM) used in clinical settings."
