Oculus Innovative Sciences Microcyn Technology Presented in Poster,at European Wound Management Association Conference

PETALUMA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2007 - Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLS) today reported that its Microcyn Technology was the subject of a poster presentation at the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) conference that was held in Glasgow, Scotland this past week.

The poster, entitled Clinical Results About an Antimicrobial Solution in the Treatment of Infected Chronic Wounds, utilized Cutting & Harding infection criteria to evaluate the performance of the Microcyn Technology plus antibiotics versus a control group of povidone iodine plus antibiotics. Forty patients with infected wounds were randomized into the two groups; 20 each in the Microcyn and povidone iodine groups. Analyzed data included: pain (VAS), improvement/resolution of the clinical signs of infection, bad odour reduction, white blood cells count and duration of hospitalization.

The study, led by investigators E. Ricci, S. Astolfi and R. Cassino of the operative unit of vulnology at the San Luca Clinic in Turin, Italy, concluded that the Microcyn Technology showed better results than did the povidone iodine group in reduced number of days of hospitalization, reduction of clinical signs of infection and pain reduction.

Dr. Andres Gutierrez, director of medical affairs for Oculus Innovative Sciences, said, "This poster, along with the dozen other international clinical studies conducted to date, further supports the use of Microcyn Technology in the treatment of infected wounds. Encouraged by these data, we have initiated several study sites for the FDA Phase II trial in the treatment of mildly infected diabetic foot ulcers in the United States."

Microcyn Technology, with three 510k FDA clearances in the United States for cleaning, moistening, lubricating and debriding wounds, is not approved in the U.S. for treatment of infection.
