Arch Therapeutics Co-Founder Dr. Ellis-Behnke to Speak at Nanomanufacturing 
Summit 2013 in Philadelphia, October 15, 2013 
The Company's Development of Medical Devices Manufactured at the
Nanoscale Is Differentiating and Important to Its Future Success 
WELLESLEY, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 --  Arch Therapeutics,
Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) ("Arch" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce
that co-founding and inventing scientist, Dr. Rutledge Ellis-Behnke,
will be featured during the opening day activities at the
Nanomanufacturing Summit 2013 October 15-17, 2013 at the University
of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.  
Dr. Ellis-Behnke's keynote speech encompasses, "Nanomedicine:
discovering, manufacturing and using new Molecular Medical Devices
for immediate hemostasis." He will focus on how related new
technology, including AC5(TM), should fundamentally alter the
practice of medicine and surgery, as well as how material design at
the nanoscale can provide desired product properties and
characteristics. 
Ellis-Behnke, comments, "The Nanomanufacturing Summit is a great
opportunity for government, universities, industry and business to
exchange emergent information on the current status of nanoscale
products as well as offering insights into new commercial practices
that introduce robust manufacturing techniques with an ability to
actually make the leap from the research lab into medical practices
across the nation and around the world."  
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 what became Arch
Therapeutics' flagship product candidate, now known as AC5(TM). Arch
Therapeutics obtained the exclusive worldwide license on the relevant
intellectual property, of which Dr. Ellis-Behnke is the lead
inventor, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and focused
on design and manufacturing at the nanoscale in order to bring
AC5(TM) closer to commercialization.  
Dr. Ellis-Behnke continues, "Arch Therapeutics' work is of vital
importance in this field, as they are instrumental in understanding
how to translate these discoveries into commercially viable processes
and products designed to fulfill areas of extraordinary medical need.
For instance, Arch's focus on surgical bleeding is important because
up to 50% of a surgeon's procedure time can be devoted to controlling
bleeding with the currently available technology."  
Arch Therapeutics CEO, Dr. Terrence Norchi commented, "Dr.
Ellis-Behnke remains a cutting edge thinker in the nanomedicine
realm. He brings an interdisciplinary approach to addressing
challenges of interventional healthcare and healing." Dr. Norchi
further commented, "Our collective focus on product design and build
at the nanoscale is very important to Arch's approach to areas of
significant medical need, starting with the mitigation of bleeding
during surgery. The nanoscale world holds great promise for the
future of medicine and for our products, in particular."
