NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Initiates Phase 2 Clinical Trial For The Treatment Of Urinary Catheter Blockage And Encrustation

NovaBay is focusing its technology on four distinct therapeutic areas: dermatology, ophthalmology, urology and hospital infections. In dermatology, the focus is on developing NVC-422 gel for impetigo and acne. NovaBay has the distinct advantage of being partnered with Galderma, the leading dermatology company in the world. In ophthalmology, the goal is to develop an eye drop for conjunctivitis with Alcon, the world's leading ophthalmology company. In urology, NovaBay aims to reduce the incidence of urinary catheter blockage and encrustation (UCBE) and the associated urinary tract infections with an irrigation solution containing NVC-422. In hospital infection, NovaBay is targeting the six-million-patient market of chronic non-healing wounds, such as pressure, venous stasis and diabetic ulcers with its proprietary antimicrobial solution, NeutroPhase ®, which has received two 510K clearances from the Food and Drug Administration.

Cautionary Information Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements, which are based upon management's current expectations, assumptions, estimates, projections and beliefs. The statements in this press release including, but not limited to, statements regarding NovaBay's expectations and potential regarding the potential of NVC-422 to treat urinary catheter blockage and encrustation and other infections, the use of NVC-422 solutions to control bacteria that inevitably and rapidly develop in urinary catheters and in the bladder represents a significant opportunity for NovaBay, that NovaBay expects the trial to be completed in Q3 2011, with results available in Q4 2011, that NovaBay plans to discuss the Phase 2 results and the Phase 3 study protocol with the FDA and initiate a Phase 3 registration study for UCBE in 2012,  as well as other statements that relate to future events or results, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or achievements to be materially different and adverse from those expressed in or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: the risk that NovaBay may experience unexpected results in further studies which may limit, delay or prevent NovaBay from conducting further clinical trials; unexpected adverse side effects or inadequate therapeutic efficacy of NVC-422 may inhibit NVC-422 from becoming a treatment for urinary catheter blockage and encrustation; the risk of unexpected delays in the regulatory process which may delay the commencement or completion of clinical trials and the risks that results obtained in the Phase I and exploratory Phase 2 may not be obtained in the current Phase 2 clinical trial.  Other risks relating to NovaBay and its Aganocide compounds, including risks that could cause results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements in this press release, are detailed in NovaBay's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, under the caption "Risk Factors" in Item 1A of Part II of that report, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 12, 2010.
