May. 21, 2015

Dave Gentry, host of "The RedChip Money Report: Small Stocks Big Money,” interviews Dr. Terrence Norchi, President & CEO of Arch Therapeutics (OTCQB: ...


Investment Highlights


  • European clinical trial expected to commence in 1H15

Hemostat and sealant worldwide market revenues are projected to grow from $4.5 billion in 2013 to $6.7 billion in 2017 (10% CAGR)

  • Current relevant hemostat and sealant solutions sell from $20 to $500; AC5 is expected to deliver value equal to or greater than currently available solutions

Potential for high, biopharma type margins with relatively low, medical device capital requirements and a shorter medical device development timeline

  • Biomaterials present safety, efficacy, and ease of use challenges
  • Time to hemostasis for most competing products is measured in minutes

  • Time to hemostasis with AC5 is faster than that reported by competing products
  • AC5 works well in presence of anticoagulants, which are taken by over 7 million Americans over age 65. AC5 stopped bleeding in animals treated with therapeutic doses of anticoagulants (blood thinners) as fast as it stopped bleeding in animals not treated
  • In vitro safety tests on 282 known human receptor and enzyme targets, AC5 showed no interaction, supporting its safety profile and straightforward mechanism of action

  • $13 billion in annual wound management revenue

Value Proposition


ARTH is developing a potential blockbuster technology to treat the $5 billion and growing hemostat and sealant market. This is a market with many flawed solutions, thus generating the need for a safe, effective, and easy to use solution. Surgeons and potential industry partners are looking for better products with novel mechanisms of action.
Preclinical studies to date support a strong efficacy and safety profile, as well as other differentiating characteristics of AC5 versus the competition. The Company anticipates high gross margins and a short time to commercialization, with the potential to generate a strong ROI for investors.
