Advanced Viral Research Corp. Announces Positive Preliminary,Findings from Ongoing Phase II Dermatological Study

YONKERS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 18, 2007 - Advanced Viral Research Corp. (OTCBB: ADVR), a research based biopharmaceutical company, announced today that preliminary findings from its ongoing Phase II dermatological study show topical treatment with AVR118 appears to have clinical activity in reducing inflammation and redness associated with surgical incisions or dermatologic dermabrasion.

The Phase II open label dermatological study is evaluating the activity of a topically applied spray formulation of AVR 118 as an anti-inflammatory and regenerative healing agent. The first cohort of patients examined underwent dermabrasion for the treatment of severe acne. Following the procedure, AVR118 was applied directly to one half of the inflamed facial tissue. The other half of the face remained untreated. A preliminary examination of five patients demonstrated visible improvement on the treated side of their face. The treated area showed less inflammation as well as a reduction in the redness and swelling of acne lesions.

The second cohort of patients examined underwent plastic surgery that resulted in a minimum of two bilateral surgical incisions. AVR118 was applied topically to one wound and the second wound served as an untreated control. In early results from two patients, one patient demonstrated a decrease in inflammation on the treated side.

"I am very encouraged by this data. The response we've seen thus far indicates that AVR118 may have beneficial activity in both sets of patients," said Stephen M. Elliston, President and Chief Executive Officer. "A preliminary and unexpected result was the reduction of the inflammatory symptoms of acne. We plan to amend the protocol to include patients being treated solely for acne, given the potential of this market," added Elliston.

Advanced Viral Research Corp. is a New York based biopharmaceutical company dedicated to improving patients' lives b y researching, developing and bringing to market new and effective therapies for the control of symptoms associated with cancer and other serious diseases.
