ULURU Inc. Announces Filing of OraDisc(TM) B Regulatory Dossier in Europe

ADDISON, TX | Posted on December 19th, 2007

OraDisc(TM) B is a product developed from our adhesive film technology which incorporates 15 milligrams of benzocaine for the treatment of oral pain. The product is designed to adhere to the mucosal surface and selectively deliver pain relief to a localized area. Compared with currently marketed gel products, OraDisc(TM) B provides a significantly greater period of pain relief as the adhesive film is designed to erode over a 1 - 1.5 hour period.

Under the terms of the agreement this will trigger a major milestone payment from Meldex International PLC in February 2008 which was payable on the later to occur of the registration filing or the first anniversary of the signing of the agreement.

Commenting on the registration filing, Kerry P. Gray, President and Chief Executive Officer of ULURU, stated "I am very pleased with the progress Meldex has made preparing and submitting the OraDisc(TM) B Dossier. Securing a regulatory approval for our adhesive film technology in Europe is an important step in our overall commercialization strategy for this technology."

Steve Martin, Chief Development Officer of Meldex International PLC, added "Strategically this is an important product in our portfolio as it compliments our existing range of products in supportive care and pain management and our instant release Soluleaves(TM) technology. Given our expanding European presence this novel product offers us the potential to build a significant presence in the pain management market."
