SinoFresh Nasal Spray Achieves Positive Results Against H1N1 (Swine Flu) Virus in Initial Pilot Animal Study

Test Data Suggests That Nasal Treatment With SinoFresh Decreased the Severity and/or Incidence of H1N1 Infection in Test Group Animals

VENICE, FL--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - SinoFresh HealthCare, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SFSH) announced today the successful results of its initial pilot animal study testing the efficacy of the SinoFresh Nasal Spray product when used on animals infected with the H1N1 ("swine flu") virus. The study data suggests that treatment with SinoFresh allowed the infected animals to recover more rapidly from H1N1 infection than did untreated animals. In addition, pre-treatment with SinoFresh Nasal Spray decreased the severity and/or incidence of infection.

Dr. Michael Stampar, D.O., Senior Medical Advisor to SinoFresh HealthCare Products, stated, "We are very encouraged by this initial study report and will continue to develop data to support our belief that SinoFresh Nasal Spray, a broad-based antiseptic solution, is an important component in protecting the health of patients that are exposed to the H1N1 ('swine flu') virus."

The study, which was conducted by SRS International Corp. of Falls Church, VA, was conducted over 14 days and was designed to evaluate the severity of infection from H1N1 ("swine flu") virus in the Cotton Rat animal model, a well accepted model for studying human nasal and respiratory tract infection by viruses and other microbial pathogens. In this study, the test animals were inoculated with H1N1 and then received SinoFresh Nasal Spray in the nose three times daily for 14 days.

The study evaluated the product's likelihood of efficacy in both prevention and treatment. One group of animals was treated with SinoFresh Nasal Spray prior to inoculation with H1N1 and a second group was treated starting 15 minutes after inoculation with H1N1 while the remaining "control group" received no treatment during the overall 14-day study period.

The Company has now also initiated a study to evaluate the product's ability to reduce or eliminate viral shedding which is the main method of transmission of the H1N1 flu virus. The active phase of the additional study has been completed and is in the laboratory for evaluation. Results are expected in the next few weeks.
