SinoFresh Nasal Spray tests positive against deadly methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteria in vitro

MRSA a leading culprit in thousands of hospital-acquired infections and deaths each year

ENGLEWOOD, Fla.–July 12, 2005 (PRIMEZONE)–SinoFresh HealthCare, Inc. (OTCBB:SFSH) today announced positive results of a controlled laboratory experiment studying the killing effectiveness of SinoFresh(tm) Nasal Spray against the deadly MRSA bacteria in vitro. Dr. Barry Kreiswirth, Ph.D., conducted the study at the Public Health Research Institute (PHRI) of Newark, NJ, where he is director of the Institute’s Tuberculosis Center and Hospital Infections Program.

The results showed 100% killing of an infectious concentration of MRSA virtually upon contact with SinoFresh(tm) Nasal Spray. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus derives its name from its resistance to commonly used antibiotics. It has become a major problem in hospitals and other extended care facilities where sick patients are particularly susceptible to infection.

William Wilferth, R.Ph., M.S., Vice President of R&D for SinoFresh HealthCare stated, “Through this and previous studies, we’ve now shown in vitro that SinoFresh(tm) eradicates representative strains of the three most common sources of upper respiratory illness — bacteria, viruses, and mold.” He continued, “We are very pleased that Dr. Kreiswirth, whose expertise in the characterization and surveillance of MRSA strains and infections has led to collaborations with the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health, was able to provide his support and direction.”

The latest in vitro results will form part of the basis of discussion when SinoFresh HealthCare goes before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a Pre-Investigational New Drug (Pre-IND) meeting to determine its course of action to gain drug status for a prescription version of SinoFresh(tm) Nasal Spray.
