Exhibit 99.1


Arch Therapeutics Novel Self-Assembling Agent, AC5-GTM, for Use in Endoscopic Procedures was Presented at the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) 2020 Annual Meeting


Emerging technology presentation demonstrates use of AC5-GTM in submucosal lifting and management of gastrointestinal bleeding during porcine endoscopic procedures.


FRAMINGHAM, Mass., August 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arch Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) ("Arch" or the "Company"), developer of novel liquid, gel and solid hemostatic and wound care devices, announces the release of research from the AC5® self-assembling peptide technology platform that was presented at the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) 2020 Annual Meeting.


SAGES selected the research, originally submitted as an abstract, to be featured in a podium presentation with a demonstration video as part of the Emerging Technology Session.1 The presentation, “Novel Self-assembling Agent, AC5-GTM, for Use in Submucosal Lifting in Endoscopic Resection and Management of Gastrointestinal Bleeding” by Eleanor C. Fung, MD, Jay Redan, MD, Chirag Shah, PhD and Terrence Norchi, MD, is available online starting August 11, 2020.


The self-assembling peptide technology, AC5-G, was studied in live swine gastrointestinal models by Dr. Fung, Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine, and by Dr. Redan, Chief of Surgery at AdventHealth Celebration and Professor of Surgery at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Fung specializes in general and minimally invasive surgery and advanced therapeutic endoscopy. Dr. Redan specializes in minimally invasive general surgery and has been widely considered a pioneer in the field of laparoscopic surgery since its infancy. The additional authors are Dr. Shah, Vice President Research and Development Engineering and Quality Systems at Arch Therapeutics, and Dr. Norchi, President and CEO of Arch Therapeutics.


Surgeons, clinicians and other attendees of SAGES may see the video here. It is also available on the Company website


AC5-G, formulated in prefilled syringes, was studied at two different medical centers in two swine in approximately 16 procedures, including endoscopic mucosal resections (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissections (ESD) and hemostasis of post polypectomy beds.





In these procedures, AC5-G demonstrated unique features and attributes compared to available alternatives in the growing field of EMR and ESD. AC5-G created a long lasting lift, or cushion, that provided good visibility and delineation of tissue planes to the surgeon, thereby enabling safer resection of target tissues. Furthermore, when applied to sites of bleeding, AC5-G provided hemostasis. AC5-G was also easily injected into the tissue through standard size injection needles (e.g., 230 cm long catheters with 25 gauge needle tips) deployed through the endoscopes, and it could be used in conjunction with clips when desired. From this initial experience, doctors Eleanor Fung and Jay Redan believe AC5-G has attributes that are applicable to a wide range of procedural needs in endoscopic surgery. Examples of applications in which we believe that AC5-G, could be used include resection of adenomas, early-stage cancers or other gastrointestinal mucosal lesions, as well as treatment of achalasia and gastrointestinal bleeding.


Terrence W. Norchi, MD, President and CEO of Arch said “We are pleased that this important research is being presented and that our promising development stage self-assembling peptide, AC5-G, is resonating with surgeons and gastroenterologists who strive to make surgical procedures less invasive and make existing minimally invasive procedures even safer. We look forward to sharing more information as this product advances through our pipeline.”
