ULURU Inc. Announces Approval to Market Altrazeal® in New Zealand


3/20/2012 7:14:24 AM

ADDISON, Texas, March 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ULURU Inc. (NYSE Amex: ULU), announced today that Altrazeal®has been approved for marketing in New Zealand.

Commenting on the approval in New Zealand, Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO of ULURU, stated, "The approval for New Zealand is very timely as the Australian Wound Management Association Conference is currently being held in Sydney. At this conference key opinion leaders from both Australia and New Zealand are being introduced to Altrazeal®. To support the launch of Altrazeal®in Australia and New Zealand a five center, 60 patient study, has been initiated in Australia. A second 90 patient comparative study is planned to be conducted in Europe. This study is to support reimbursement submissions by demonstrating pharmacoeconomic benefits. These two studies will provide additional support for our global marketing activities."

With the New Zealand approval it is now anticipated that Altrazeal®will be launched in the near future in six additional markets for human and veterinary use.

Also, we have been recently advised by our licensee for China that approval is anticipated in the second quarter of 2012. The Altrazeal® regulatory submission is at the final stage of technical evaluation by the Center for Medical Device Evaluation. All updated certificates and materials have been submitted to the SFDA, the regulatory body for China.

Mr. Gray Continued, "With approval in China in the final phase we will now focus on further expanding our international network to include Canada, Latin America, additional S.E. Asia markets and South Korea. It is our objective to have Altrazeal®marketed in over 12 countries by the end of 2012. In addition, we have recently submitted a quotation to supply Altrazeal® to a Middle Eastern country. If successful, government tenders such as this can significantly enhance near term revenues."
