Arch Therapeutics Co-Founder Dr. Ellis-Behnke Speaks at 6th Annual CLINAM 
Nanomedicine Summit in Basel, Switzerland 
Company Views Participation at Forefront of Emerging Trends in
Nanomedicine as Important to Ongoing Strategy for Success 
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/13 --   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 lecture
titled "The Spider Effect, how the Immune System in the Brain can be
Measured and Modulated with Nanotechnology" at the 6th annual
European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine (CLINAM) Summit in
Basel, Switzerland. 
The focus of this year's CLINAM Summit was 'Nanomedicine & Targeted
Medicine -- the paradigm of precise, highly effective and safe
medicine with subtle influence for the benefit of patients and
mankind.' Beat Loeffler, Executive Director of CLINAM, said the goal
of the 2013 Summit was "to bring together the most skilled people in
an effort to help to shape this scientific field and thereby push the
boundaries of cutting-edge Nanomedicine and Targeted Medicine." 
Ellis-Behnke, a founding board member of the International Society of
Nanomedicine, discussed the groundbreaking system he designed to
categorize the activation status of microglia using morphological
attributes. "The work represents a new measurement system for
inflammation that assigns an objective number to the level of
inflammation and thus can be used as a diagnostic to treat and
measure the response," he said. 
Ellis-Behnke noted, "Inflammation is often only treated for two
weeks. However, our work indicates that inflammation can last far
longer than that before returning to a resting state, suggesting that
inflammation needs to be treated far longer than was once thought. In
order to modulate these responses, it is important to control the
leakage of blood within and between tissue components as well as in
the local environment. This can be accomplished with novel
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. He proposed
the development and commercialization of Arch Therapeutics' flagship
product candidate known as AC5(TM).  
Arch Therapeutics CEO, Dr. Terrence Norchi further comments, "Dr.
Ellis-Behnke is at the forefront of emerging trends in nanomedicine
and the advice he provides our Company continues to be of great
importance. He is the lead inventor on the intellectual property
exclusively licensed by Arch Therapeutics from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology and his work offers strategic insights that
shape our future and the roadmap for our success."
