MUNICH, Germany, Nov. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immudyne, Inc. (Pink Sheets:IMMD) is pleased to announce that Sven Rohmann, MD, PhD presented clinical data on Immudyne's ultra pure beta glucan produced from yeast through a proprietary patented process, in both orally and topically administered forms.

Immudyne's ultra pure beta glucan, administered orally with a daily dosage of 7.5 mg was shown to prevent the reoccurrence of cancer in 100% of 26 study participants who were in remission at the initiation of the study, compared to a matched control group of 23 participants that experienced a reoccurrence rate of 22 %.

In another clinical study Immudyne's ultra pure beta glucan was administered orally with a daily dosage of 15 mg to terminally-ill cancer patients, who were described as having a life expectancy of three months or less. After three months 79.6% of the 54 participants were still living, compared to only 2.4% of the 45 participants in the control group. After six months 43% of the participants taking Immudyne's beta glucan were still living, compared to none of the control group.

Dr Rohmann commented that these studies and others point to the potential of a therapeutic regimen combining Immudyne's ultra pure beta glucan with traditional forms of cancer treatments.

Dr. Rohmann also described a clinical study of the effectiveness of Immudyne's two topical beta glucan products. Applied twice daily the Immudyne products reduced the number and intensity of wrinkles in the female study participants significantly. At the initiation of the study the women had an average appearance of 44 years, as determined by the average wrinkle score. By the end of the eight week study the women had an average appearance of 29 years.
