    Alliqua to Present Results Demonstrating Antimicrobial Properties of SilverSeal® at SAWC SPRING 2013


    NEW YORK , May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliqua, Inc. (OTCQB:ALQA) ("Alliqua(ALQA)" or the "Company") today announced it will present the results of two in vitro studies investigating the antimicrobial properties of the Company's SilverSeal® hydrogel dressing. Data from these studies indicate that SilverSeal may be capable of rapid and sustained efficacy in managing the occurrence of wound contamination by reducing the bioburden from multiple bacterial pathogens and by sustaining this activity for up to eight days. Complete data will be presented at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and Wound Healing Society (SAWC/WHS) meeting taking place May 1-5, 2013 in Denver, CO.

    The first study tested the bactericidal activity of SilverSeal against pathogens commonly associated with wound infections, including MRSA and VRE. SilverSeal dressings were exposed for up to 24 hours to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE), Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Concentrations of E. coli, P. aeruginosa, MRSA, E. faecalis and K. pneumoniae had been reduced by 99.99%; and of VRE after 24 hours.

    "The ability of SilverSeal to control these bacterial pathogens is a very important finding in today's environment where health officials around the globe are voicing concern over the rising prevalence of resistant hospital-acquired infections, including surgical site infections," stated David Johnson, Alliqua(ALQA)'s chief executive officer. "The timing of these findings is particularly opportune as we institute plans to increase our marketing of these dressing solutions through our growing sales organization to the acute care and post-acute care marketplace."
