VENICE, Fla., Jan. 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SinoFresh® HealthCare, Inc., (Pink Sheets:SFSH) is pleased to announce it has launched a program to initiate studies providing additional data to evaluate the efficacy of SinoFresh Homeopathic Antiseptic Nasal Spray in reducing the onset and duration of a number of common illnesses such as sinusitis, common colds and flu. SinoFresh HealthCare, Inc. anticipates that the initial study designed to evaluate symptom relief for chronic sinusitis sufferers, estimated to be as many as 37 million Americans, will commence by the end of the Q2 2011.

William Wilferth, Chief Pharmacist and Vice President of R&D states, "With our recent acquisition of SRS International, SinoFresh is now in a position to initiate a program to fully evaluate the impact of the product's use for a number of common illnesses such as sinusitis, common colds and flu. SRS has extensive expertise in the design, conduct and evaluation of products like SinoFresh's Nasal Spray and will be able to develop the data necessary for the company to inform users of the full benefits of SinoFresh Nasal Spray use. We look forward to the initiation of this program and the exciting potential it holds for new and expanded uses of our premier product."

Wilferth continues, "We have been encouraged to take this next important step by our nearly 10 years of input from both consumers as well as the medical community citing strong anecdotal evidence that the SinoFresh Homeopathic Antiseptic Nasal Spray has brought significant relief to sinusitis sufferers. Numerous regular users of the product have also reported to us a significant reduction in the incidents of cold and flu infections. While we cannot make these claims now, we have reason to be optimistic in evaluating the regular use of a nasal antiseptic in reducing the onset and duration of upper respiratory contracted illnesses."

"We are excited about initiating this program to support and build the research and clinical database on our patented lead product," stated David R. Olund, CEO. "We believe that success in these clinical initiatives has the potential to expand product usage, open additional markets and dramatically impact long term shareholder value."
