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 materials." 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."
