In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year.

Sirona Biochem's Second Skin Lightening Compound Shows Superiority Over Industry Standard in Study

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/22/12 -- Sirona Biochem Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SBM)(PINKSHEETS:SRBCF)(FRANKFURT:ZSB), announced today that its second cosmetic skin lightening compound developed by its subsidiary company, TFChem, demonstrated extremely positive results in an efficacy study. The study showed that the company's depigmenting agent, TFC-849, was 7 and 14 times more effective at inhibiting tyrosinase than alpha- and beta arbutin, respectively. Both alpha- and beta arbutin are industry standard skin lighteners. Sirona Biochem has two compounds that are being developed as cosmetic skin lightening agents. The studies, funded through a $1.9 million French grant, are led by TFChem and involve a consortium of partners.

"We are thrilled our skin depigmenting agents are showing a major advantage over two of the most popular skin lightening compounds," said Neil Belenkie, Chief Executive Officer of Sirona Biochem. "Based on the results we've seen so far, we believe we are developing agents that are going to be more effective than any skin lighteners currently on the market."

An IC50 calculation, a standard laboratory inhibiting measure, showed that TFC-849 was 7 times more effective at inhibiting human tyrosinase activity than alpha arbutin and 14 times more effective than beta arbutin. Efficacy studies were conducted using commercial human tyrosinase Feldan® to determine the compound's ability to inhibit tyrosinase activity. Tyrosinase is an enzyme responsible for melanin production or darkening of the skin.

Further studies are being conducted to study the stability and safety of both of the company's depigmenting agents, TFC-849 and TFC-723. Results of these studies are anticipated in the following weeks.

According to Global Industry Analysts, the global skin lightening market was estimated to be US$7.5 billion in 2009 and is expected to exceed US$10 billion by 2015. It's estimated about 15 percent of the global population invests in skin lightening products. In Japan alone, an estimated US$5.9B was spent on skin lighteners in 2009.
