ADDISON, Texas, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ULURU Inc. (OTCQB: ULUR) announced today the first shipment of the 0.75 gram blister pack to our Austrian marketing partner.

Commenting on the launch of Altrazeal® in Austria, Helmut Kerschbaumer, Chairman of Melmed Holding AG, stated, "We are excited to launch Altrazeal® in the first European market. Given the changes that are occurring in reimbursement in certain European markets this is an ideal time to launch this highly cost effective advanced wound care dressing. The clinical experience, particularly the Austrian experience which has been developed by important key opinion leaders, favourably positions Altrazeal® to compete for a leadership position in Austria and throughout Europe. The innovative packaging design of the 0.75 gram blister pack, which has been very positively received by the medical community, further improves Altrazeal's® ease of application and provides a highly innovative image reflecting the significant advancement Altrazeal® represents in the advanced wound care market."
