WELLESLEY, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - Arch Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: ARTH) ("Arch" or the "Company"), developer of the AC5 Surgical Hemostat™, announced that it will be featured as a presenting company at the 7th Annual Livingston Securities Life Sciences Stakeholders Summit on October 1, 2014 at the Cira Center in Philadelphia, PA.

Chief Executive Officer, Terrence W. Norchi, MD, will provide a corporate overview and update. Dr. Norchi will also discuss the importance of developing a hemostatic agent that is effective in patients prescribed anti-coagulant or anti-platelet therapy, which are commonly known as blood thinners and are taken by millions of Americans. AC5™ has recently been shown to be effective in stopping bleeding in animals on an anticoagulant in two separate studies, including one performed by an independent third-party research group. In these studies, the measured time to hemostasis (TTH) in animals administered therapeutics doses of heparin was rapid and comparable to the TTH in those animals not administered the anticoagulant. TTH is a measure of the time required for bleeding to stop after administration of the product.

The current presentation will be available on the corporate website (www.archtherapeutics.com).
