 ZILA, INC. POSTS RECORD FIRST QUARTER SALES AND PROFITS
 PHOENIX, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Zila, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZILA) today announced record sales and profits for the first quarter of fiscal year 1992 (ended Oct. 31, 1991).
 Sales of $1,213,087 for the first three months of FY 1992 compare to sales of $1,035,961 for the same period in FY 1991 -- an increase of 17 percent. Net income for the 1992 quarter was $157,455, compared to $132,343 for 1991 -- a 19 percent increase.
 "With Zila's sales and profits steadily increasing," President Joseph Hines said, "we have significantly expanded our product development program. Internal funding of product development in the first quarter was increased more than $80,000 from the amount spent a year ago. Had we not increased our investment in new product development, quarterly net income would have been more than $238,000, an 80 percent increase over the prior year. Stated simply, we are investing in Zila's future and are confident that the result will be most rewarding for the company and its shareholders."
 Zila plans to introduce several new products early in 1992. The company has announced plans to market PeriGel(tm), a new dentrifice/oral care system, and ZilaDerm(tm), to treat minor cuts, abrasions, insect bites, poison ivy and other skin irritations. Additionally, Zila is aggressively pursuing regulatory approval for another oral care product, formulated to assist in the diagnosis of certain oral diseases. "We are also analyzing several additional product acquisition and licensing opportunities," Hines added.
 Zila currently markets and distributes non-prescription, topical medications for the treatment of oral lesions. Its products include Zilactin(R), ZilaDent(tm), ZilaBrace(tm) and Zilactol(tm). Zila's offices are at 5227 North 7th Street, Phoenix, Ariz. 85014-2800.
