ULURU Inc. Announces Development Partnership With a Leading Consumer Pharmaceutical Company to Develop a Range of Products.
ADDISON, TX | Posted on July 11th, 2007
ULURU Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ULUR) today announced that it has commenced the development of a range of consumer pharmaceutical products under a development agreement signed with a major consumer pharmaceutical company.
The initial developments are focused on utilizing our nanoparticle
elastic adhesive gel, which offers the potential to significantly extend
the time that a flexible film stays in contact with the skin, to release
active compounds. Under the terms of the agreement ULURU will receive
payments for the development activities and has granted its development
partner a period of exclusivity to enter a potential licensing agreement.
Commenting on the agreement Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO of ULURU
Inc., stated "This is an important validation of our nanoparticle elastic
gel technology. Considerable interest has been expressed in this technology
by both consumer product and dermatology companies as the gel offers the
potential to extend the delivery of actives to the skin surface. Both the
gel technology and our erodible film technology give us the potential to
develop a range of differentiated consumer pharmaceutical products with a
significant period of patent protection. We continue to explore extensions
of our technology applications into the consumer pharmaceutical market as
this offers the potential to accelerate product revenue."
The nanoparticle elastic gel forms a transparent adhesive film that can
be spread on intact skin or superficial non-exudating wounds. The film can
be applied to irregular surfaces such as joints without impairing movement
and deliver active compounds for extended periods of time. Potential uses
of the elastic gel include treatment of acne, psoriasis, skin irritation,
scar management and cold sores.
