Topical Treatment for Cold Sores Achieves Efficacy of Oral Drugs; Represents Paradigm Shift in the Treatment of Skin Infections
Date:10/28/2008

Data to be presented at annual ICAAC/IDSA meeting in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists at NanoBio Corporation have demonstrated for the first time in humans that a novel topical treatment for cold sores (herpes labialis), NB-001, speeds healing of lesions as effectively as the leading oral systemic drugs but without safety or toxicity concerns.

The new data provide the first proof of principle that a topical agent can attain equivalent efficacy rates to oral systemic drugs, according to the NanoBio scientists. Topical treatments are widely considered inferior to oral systemic treatments because they fail to penetrate to the site of infection with adequate drug levels required to subdue infections.

In the study of 482 patients, NB-001 healed lesions 1.3 days faster than placebo as measured by investigators (P=0.006). Results of the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2b trial are being presented at the 48th annual Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC)/46th annual Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) meeting in Washington, D.C.

NB-001 was well tolerated, without safety concerns or adverse events, and was not systemically absorbed. "NB-001 challenges the conventional wisdom that topical therapies are less effective, because NB-001 directly accesses the site of infection in the dermis and epidermis instead of remaining on top of the skin," said James R. Baker, Jr., M.D., founder and chairman of NanoBio Corp. "NB-001 employs a physical mode of action to disrupt the outer membranes of pathogens and prompt viral lysis, essentially killing on contact."

The study also suggests that the physical mode of action of NB-001 significantly reduces the likelihood that pathogens will develop resistance to the biocidal effect of the topical lotion.

"These characteristics make NB-001 an ideal candidate for first-line treatment with the potential for
