avVaa World Health Care Products Reports Promising Research Findings for New Products Under Development

    LUMBY, B.C., July 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- avVaa World Health Care
 Products, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   AVVW), a biotech company offering
 therapeutic skin and health care products to customers worldwide, is
 pleased to announce positive findings from a number of scientific studies
 leading the way to avVaa's next generation of NeuroSkin(TM) products.
     avVaa Vice President of Research and Development, Dr. Mark Alden,
 recently presented data from the first clinical trail demonstrating the
 efficacy of patented nanoparticle silicic acid, the backbone of avVaa's
 next generation of NeuroSkin products at the plenary session of the New
 Jersey Technology Council Conference at Princeton University.
     At the presentation, Dr. Alden explained the vital role that silicon
 plays (in its biologically active amorphous form) in skin health and
 resilience (collagen formation, moisture retention, wound healing, among
 others). The conference, aimed at commercializing nanotechnology in the
 life sciences, hosted speakers from around the world. Interested parties

     The study, soon to be published, was conducted in Munich, Germany on
 patients suffering from eczema -- for many, a lifelong affliction. Testing
 both the mild and forte formulations, the study results were very positive.
     After just four weeks' use of NeuroSkin, researchers noted a 59%
 decrease in symptoms of erythema, a 70% reduction in skin scaling, a 63%
 improvement in infiltration, and a 45% reduction in itching. No adverse
 reactions were reported, and the products were well tolerated by the
 patients studied: 100% considered the mild version pleasing, and 94% the
 forte version (scent and irritation). Dr. Alden considered these results
 "remarkable," and "ground breaking," for a product with no toxicity.
     Two other studies using nanoparticle silicon were presented at the 42nd
 National Dermatology Congress, in Rimini, Italy. One, conducted by C.
 Rigoni, et. al. on children with eczema, and the other by S. Chimenti, et.
 al. on adults with Psoriasis, showed strikingly similar results. The
 percentage of patients experiencing greater than 50% reduction in symptoms
 was 85% and 71% in the two studies, respectively. Ninety percent reported
 an improvement in the quality of life index.
     Unlike virtually all commonly prescribed treatments for eczema
 (including steroids, UV light, coal tar, or chemotherapy), avVaa' NeuroSkin
 formulation does not require treatment breaks or limited use, since there
 are no known ill effects or toxicities. NeuroSkin contains silicic acid, a
 silicon-containing molecule found to be safe for topical application,
 backed by years of research.
     Alden continued, "The incidence of common skin ailments is growing
 worldwide. Yet, for the millions of people suffering from eczema and
 psoriasis, no cure is in sight. The only current palliative treatments
 available come with a risk of adverse effects, and their use must be
 limited. avVaa World Health Care Products, using a patented process that
 refines silica to nanoparticle size, provides a non-toxic solution for
 patients suffering from this growing health problem.
     "The results of these studies conducted around the world, together with
 ongoing trials, support our current line, and lead the way to new products
 under development -- including new applications and next generation
 formulations of NeuroSkin, which we are very excited about."
     avVaa CEO and Director Jack Farley said, "We are encouraged by recent
 study findings on our newest product lines. Well-researched, controlled
 scientific studies as to efficacy and safety lend substantial credibility
 in the marketplace and we look forward to full introduction of these unique
 skin care products that will meet avVaa's strictest standards for
 non-toxic, therapeutic skin care products to improve quality of life and
 well being for consumers worldwide."
