 "Fiscal year 2011 was a building year for our company.  We achieved a broad
array of objectives across the topical, systemic and cosmetic programs within
our company.  With that groundwork set, I feel enthusiastic about the prospects
of our topical and systemic research programs as well as our cosmetic business. 
The coming year will be one focused on (a) generating more clinical results with
proof-of-concept studies for dermatological indications; (b) progressing our TBI
trials; (c)  collaborations with dermatologists who want to conduct studies to
determine the benefits of DERMACYTE skin care products; and (c) growing
DERMACYTE sales," said Chris Stern, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.


Financial Results

Net revenue for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011 was $103,167 compared to
$8,353 for the same period in fiscal year 2010. Gross profit as a percent of
revenue was 32% compared with 17% for the previous year. This was primarily due
to increased sales volume of the Company´s two new DERMACYTE products that were
launched in fiscal 2011.

Marketing and sales expenses for the year ended April 30, 2011 were $875,634
compared with $283,104 for the comparable period in 2010. The increases in
marketing and sales expenses for the year were driven primarily by an increase
in the costs incurred for compensation, marketing and direct advertising for our
DERMACYTE product line, as well as trade shows, public relations and other
market development programs for our cosmetics.

General and Administrative (G&A) expenses increased from $6,952,036 to
$7,108,497 for the fiscal year 2012 compared with fiscal year 2011.  The
increase in G&A expenses for the fiscal year 2011 was driven primarily by an
increase in legal and accounting fees, compensation, depreciation and
amortization, and impairment charges on certain intangible assets.  This
increase was partially offset by a reduction in our costs for consulting.

For the 12-month period ending April 30, 2011, research and development expenses
decreased 10% from $2,974,709 compared to $2,681,713 for the 12-month period
ending April 20, 2010.  The decrease in R&D was driven primarily by a reduction
in development costs, partially offset by an increase in compensation and costs
associated with the Phase IIb traumatic brain injury clinical trials for Oxycyte
emulsion.

During the 12-months ended April 30, 2011, other income increased approximately
$435,000 compared to the same period in the prior year.  This increase was due
to the award of nearly $250,000 under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care
Act of 2010, which was received in November 2010, and the impairment on our
investments in Glucometrics and Purple Heart Injury Labs of approximately
$210,000 recorded in the prior year.

Interest expense increased approximately $17,000 for fiscal year 2012 due to the
accretion of premium due on the promissory notes issued under the Note Purchase
Agreement with our largest shareholder, the Vatea Fund, as compared to the
interest recognized from the amortization of the discounts and issue costs upon
conversion of the notes payable in the prior year. 

Total operating expenses for the year ended April 30, 2011 were $10,665,844
compared to $10,209,849 for the same period in 2010.

For the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011, we reported a net loss of $10,448,296,
or $0.45 per share, compared to a net loss of $10,507,376, or $0.54 per share
for fiscal year 2010.

For the full year ended April 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash
equivalents totaling $951,944, compared with $632,706 at April 30, 2010.
