FRAMINGHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 22, 2016) - Arch Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) ("Arch" or the "Company"), developer of the AC5 Surgical Hemostatic Device™ ("AC5™"), reports favorable data from a 21-day repeat exposure skin test to evaluate the irritation potential of AC5 to human skin. This represents the first safety data obtained for AC5 from human testing.
The study was a Cumulative Irritation Evaluation test designed to determine the skin irritation potential of AC5 and controls after each was applied daily for 21 sequential days to the skin of a total of 41 healthy male and female human subjects. Results were obtained by evaluating and comparing the subject's skin in areas where AC5 and the controls were repeatedly applied. Based upon the results, AC5 was not considered an irritant.
Arch Therapeutics President and CEO Terrence Norchi, MD, stated, "The results of this study represent an important step toward demonstrating clinical safety of AC5, and we remain pleased with the safety data generated to date. This irritation test adds to the portfolio of solid results and should enhance the profile of AC5 for hemostasis and other wound care applications."
