ULURU Inc. Presents Nanoparticle Wound Care Technology at the Society for Biomaterials 2007 Annual Meeting and Exposition

ADDISON, TX | Posted on April 23rd, 2007

Bulletin Board: ULUR) announced that its nanoparticle aggregate technology
was presented today at the Society for Biomaterials 2007 Annual Meeting and
Exposition. This presentation was given by Dr. John St. John, Vice
President of Material Science, a co-inventor of the technology, during the
Regenerative Medicine and Clinical Translation II (wound healing) session
of the meeting.

The presentation titled "Immediate Shape-Retentive Wound Dressings
Formed In Situ Using Hydrogel Nanoparticle Powders" is the first scientific
presentation of this exciting new technology. The presentation initially
focused on the methods for the synthesis, purification and the physical
properties of the material. Wound healing data, in porcine full-thickness
wounds and skin graft donor site models, also presented demonstrating the
superiority of the nanoparticle aggregate dressing, compared with a leading
commercial product, to accelerate wound healing.

Results presented by Dr. St. John demonstrated the ability to control
the release of drugs and proteins from the nanoparticle dressing for a
period of time in excess of 30 days. This unique property of the
nanoparticle aggregate wound dressing offers the exciting opportunity of
controlling the release of growth factors and other actives to accelerate
wound healing.

A summary of the attributes of the nanoparticle aggregate technology

* Forms a film in situ sealing the wound and allowing conformation to
irregular wound surfaces
* Adheres to the wound but does not harm the healing tissue
* The dressing is moisture vapor and oxygen permeable
* Substantially decreases the need for multiple dressing changes
* Active healing agents can be trapped between the nanoparticles to
control the release of these actives to promote wound healing

Commenting on this presentation Dr. Spencer A. Brown, Director of
Research, Plastic Surgery Department University of Texas Southwestern
Medical center of Dallas, a co-author of the paper, stated, "At the
University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center we have extensively
evaluated this material both as a non-medicated dressing and an advanced
wound dressing incorporating a variety of actives including numerous growth
factors. The results achieved to date are very impressive in all the model
systems we have evaluated. We believe that this material offers great
promise to significantly advance the treatment of wounds and not only
accelerate the wound healing process but also reduce the nursing burden and
cost of patient care."
