Date:1/6/2014

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: AMPE) today announced that subsidiary Luoxis has entered into research agreements with Western Galilee Medical Center (Nahariya, Israel) and the University of Thessaly (Larissa, Greece). These two leading oxidative stress research groups will utilize Luoxis' proprietary RedoxSYS oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) diagnostic system to study oxidative stress markers across hypertension, hemodialysis, sepsis, and physical exertion.

Western Galilee Medical Center, based in Nahariya, Israel, is a leading institution in the study of oxidative stress. Dr. Shifra Sela and Dr. Batya Kristal will serve as the principle investigators studying oxidation-reduction potential in hypertension and hemodialysis.  Both researchers have studied oxidative stress for over 20 years, and their work has been extensively published.

The University of Thessaly, comprising faculties of Medicine, Biochemistry and Biotechnology in Larissa, Greece, is an established institution supported by University Hospital of Larissa and focused on patient care and research, including the study of oxidative stress in critical conditions.  Dr. Maria Karapetsa, Dr. Epaminondas Zakynthinos, Dr. Dimitrios Kouretas, and Dr. Dimitrios Stagos will serve as the principle investigators studying oxidation-reduction potential in sepsis and physical exertion. All researchers have multiple publications to their credit.

"We are pleased to be partnering with Western Galilee Medical Center and the University of Thessaly on these important research projects," said Josh Disbrow, Chief Executive Officer of Luoxis. "Luoxis and these prominent research teams share a strong interest in advancing the study of oxidative stress, and we believe incorporating oxidation-reduction potential measurements into current diagnostic practice will significantly advance assessment of human oxidative stress in prevalent and challenging patient populations."

Both research centers, in collaboration with Dr. David Bar-Or, Ampio and Luoxis Chief Scientific Officer, expect to publish the results of their research in peer-reviewed publications following completion of the studies. 

About the RedoxSYS Diagnostic System
The RedoxSYS diagnostic system is a patented diagnostic device with accompanying disposable sensors that rapidly measures and reports unique oxidative stress parameters by analyzing a single drop of a biologic specimen. Prior to the development of the RedoxSYS diagnostic system, oxidative stress measurement was incomplete, time consuming and impractical in a clinical setting. The RedoxSYS diagnostic system enables robust and rapid assessment of oxidative stress via measurement of oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) in the clinical setting.  ORP is a homeostatic parameter capturing the balance of oxidants and reductants in a biologic system, a complete measure of oxidative stress.  Multiple clinical trials have been completed using the RedoxSYS diagnostic system and have demonstrated the predictive value of ORP across numerous conditions.

About Luoxis
Luoxis is a biotechnology company focused on the development and global commercialization of the RedoxSYS diagnostic system.  The RedoxSYS diagnostic system is comprised of a portable analyzer and disposable sensors that rapidly measure the level of oxidative stress and antioxidant reserves in biologic specimens via assessment of oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). ORP has been shown to be an important measure in both critical and chronic illnesses and is a novel marker of patient morbidity across a wide range of conditions. There are numerous clinical indications for this homeostatic parameter for which there is no currently available test. Luoxis is a majority-owned subsidiary of Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

About Ampio Pharmaceuticals
Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a development stage biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development of therapies to treat prevalent inflammatory conditions for which there are limited treatment options. We are developing compounds that decrease inflammation by (i) inhibiting specific pro-inflammatory compounds by affecting specific pathways at the protein expression and at the transcription level; (ii) activating specific phosphatase or depletion of the available phosphate needed for the inflammation process; and (iii) decreasing vascular permeability.
