NovaBay Pharmaceuticals Provides Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2010 Financial Results And Business Unit Updates

"We further advanced on our goal of building business units based upon the Aganocide anti-infective platform in four distinct therapeutic areas: dermatology, ophthalmology, urology and hospital infections. Each of these market segments offers substantial revenue potential. NovaBay's hybrid strategy is to address these market opportunities either through partnerships and collaborations, which effectively minimizes our commercialization risk, or by building an internal organization to strategically market our own products when appropriate from a commercial standpoint," Dr. Ron Najafi, concluded.

Recent Highlights

2010 Highlights

The results were highlighted at the 48th Annual Infectious Disease Society of America Meeting in Vancouver, B.C., which also provided the Company with a platform to announce additional confirmatory studies of NVC-422's nail penetration and anti-fungal capabilities in onychomycosis. 
  • October 2010 - Appointed Gail Maderis, BayBio President and CEO, former CEO of Five Prime Therapeutics and Genzyme Senior Executive, to its Board of Directors. Over 20 years of senior-level healthcare experience adds significant depth to NovaBay's Board.

The patent will cover compositions of matter and methods of use for NVC-612 and related compounds, all of which have a unique mechanism of action toward microorganisms. The new patent complements NovaBay's existing collection of more than 20 patents and pending patent applications on its proprietary technology platforms.   
  • May 2010 - Completed enrollment in Phase 2a proof of concept clinical trial for the treatment of impetigo. The double-blind, randomized, sequential group study evaluated the safety and efficacy of NVC-422, in 129 patients ages 2 to 12 at clinical centers in the Dominican Republic.

  • March 2010 - Reported positive data from exploratory Phase 2 clinical trial for Urinary Catheter Blockage and Encrustation (UCBE). In-house, un-partnered study showed that NovaBay's lead Aganocide compound, NVC-422 was well tolerated and reduced or eliminated certain pathogens in the urine.
