Provectus Type C Meeting With FDA Oncology Division Held December 16, 2013

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--

Provectus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB:PVCT) (, a development-stage oncology and dermatology biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it held a Type C meeting with the FDA's Division of Oncology Products 2 on December 16, 2013. The purpose of the meeting was to determine which of the available paths that Provectus' novel oncology drug PV-10 will take in pursuit of FDA approval and commercialization.

Under FDA rules, the agency should issue official minutes to the Company within 30 days after such a meeting; in this case by January 15, 2014. The minutes will clarify the available regulatory paths and, therefore, allow the Company to better estimate a time-line to commercialization of PV-10.

Chief Executive Officer Craig Dees, Ph.D., said, "This meeting with the FDA is a significant step forward in establishing a pathway to initial U.S. approval of PV-10 for the treatment of melanoma. There are different possible routes to approval of PV-10 such as a breakthrough therapy designation or accelerated approval and each of these has different requirements and time lines. I appreciate that our shareholders are eager to receive as much information as possible, and while there is nothing more the Company can add until it has received the official meeting minutes, we wanted to provide this interim update. In addition, our discussions with several potential international licensing partners are not affected in any way."
