Alliqua Biomedical Announces New Data on sorbion(R) Wound Care Dressings to be Presented at the Spring 2014 SAWC Meeting

(April 21, 2014)

LANGHORNE, Pa., April 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliqua, Inc. (Nasdaq:ALQA) ("Alliqua" or "the Company"), a provider of advanced wound care products, announces new data from the Company's sorbion® product line will be presented at the Spring 2014 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care to be held at the Gaylord Palms Hotel and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida on April 23-27. Thirteen abstracts will highlight data on cytokine and protease binding capabilities and bacterial sequestration and retention through exudate management by sorbion® dressings. The resulting reduction of inflammation and impact on other factors that affect wound healing will be discussed. 

Separately, the Company will co-sponsor a breakfast symposium with sorbion titled "Cost Savings Through Hydrokinetic Fibers in Acute and Chronic Wounds" on Friday, April 25 from 7:30am-9:00am ET. The symposium will focus on the beneficial attributes of advanced wound care dressings from sorbion using hydrokinetic fibers in acute and chronic wounds. Attendees will learn about the dressing's ability to absorb and hold high quantities of exudate, reduce bioburden through microbial sequestration and use as a way to decrease (or manage) utilization of negative pressure wound therapy, which can result in significant cost savings. The participants will be Keith Cutting, MN (Daresbury, UK), Randall Wolcott, MD (Lubbock, TX), Cornelia Wiegand, PhD (Jena, Germany) and S. Kwon Lee, MD (Sacramento, CA).

David Johnson, CEO of Alliqua, said, "The SAWC meeting is the largest annual gathering of wound care clinicians in the U.S. We are very excited to participate in this program and highlight the specific advantages presented by sorbion's wound care dressings."
