Arch Therapeutics Co-Founder Rutledge Ellis-Behnke Delivers Keynote at 
Nanomaterials Technology Transfer Conference in Corfu, Greece 
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 --   Arch Therapeutics,
Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) ("Arch" or the "Company"), a life science company
and developer of AC5(TM), a novel product aimed at controlling
bleeding and fluid loss in order to provide faster and safer surgical
and interventional care, is pleased to advise that co-founding and
inventing scientist, Dr. Rutledge Ellis-Behnke, delivered a keynote
lecture titled "Translating Nanomedicine: Molecular medical devices
from Nano Neuro Knitting to Immediate Hemostasis to Cancer Stem Cell
Arrest" in Corfu, Greece at the Technology Transfer Workshop: From
the Lab to the Marketplace.  
Dr. Ellis-Behnke was instrumental in discovering the hemostatic and
other barrier properties of self-assembling peptides that could make
future surgery and interventional care faster and safer through the
development and proposed commercialization of the Company's flagship
product candidate known as AC5(TM). The product is based on a
self-assembling peptide solution that creates a physical, mechanical
barrier, which could be applied to bleeding organs or wounds to seal
leaking blood and other fluids.  
Dr. Ellis-Behnke presented during a day-long special workshop,
addressing nanotechnology transfer, which was part of a larger
four-day conference, the 4th International Conference for
Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials to Nanodevices and Nanosystems, which
reviewed the current state-of-the-art in nanoscience and
nanotechnology, and identifies challenging and rewarding research
Ellis-Behnke talked about his discovery of new molecular medical
devices and how they will change medicine and the entire healthcare
system. "Controlling the healing process is critical for the recovery
of any injury, especially burn trauma," Ellis-Behnke continues,
"First a barrier must be created to stop bleeding. In a surgical
setting, we've shown that we can stop bleeding in small and large
animals in less than 15 seconds, in multiple tissues, as well as a
variety of different wounds, using a self-assembling peptide that
creates a barrier and incorporates it into the surrounding tissue to
form an extracellular matrix. This is all achieved without clotting
and we've found that it does not induce an immune response." 
An added benefit of the nanomaterial is that it is optically
transparent. "Placing it on a wound not only stops the bleeding
quickly and creates a barrier; it also provides a clear view of the
surgical field while operating through it." 
"This technology will impact the operating room in a fundamental way
through the reduction in procedure time, along with the ability to
control the environment so operations can be performed in less than
optimal conditions while maintaining surgical field integrity," said
Ellis-Behnke. "The time to perform an operation could potentially be
reduced by up to 50 percent."
