* FDA issued suggested labeling for BF-200 ALA for treatment of actinic
keratosis (AK)
* FDA has not requested any further data
* NDA on track

Leverkusen, Germany, April 4, 2016 -
Biofrontera AG (FSE: B8F), the specialist for sun-induced skin cancer, today
announced an update on the latest progress of its New Drug Application (NDA)
for lead product BF-200 ALA, which is currently being reviewed by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has issued the proposed labeling
for BF-200 ALA, the Company's prescription drug for the treatment of mild to
moderate actinic keratosis (AK) on the face and scalp. Biofrontera
anticipates finalizing the labeling of BF-200 ALA with the FDA over the next
few weeks to adequately reflect the drug's efficacy and safety indications.

As a part of FDA's review, Biofrontera is addressing the additional questions
posed by the regulatory agency regarding the quality management system and
Biofrontera's photodynamic therapy lamp, which is used in conjunction with
and activates the topically-applied BF-200 ALA. The Company anticipates these
questions to be resolved in the coming days. In addition, the FDA has not
made Biofrontera aware of any major issues or deficiencies with the submitted
NDA, nor have they raised any major issues during their inspections of
Biofrontera's clinical sites or partnered manufacturing facilities. The only
inspection still pending is that of Biofrontera's medical device
manufacturing facility, which FDA has announced for early May.

"We are extremely encouraged by the FDA's initially suggested labeling and
look forward to working with them closely to finalize this important step as
we prepare for the U.S. launch of BF-200 ALA," said Prof. Hermann Lübbert,
CEO of Biofrontera AG. "We have been pleased with the efficiency and
seamlessness of the NDA process and strongly believe we will be able to
adequately address any additional inquiries that the FDA may raise as the May
PDUFA date nears. BF-200 ALA represents a unique product that will assist
those suffering from actinic keratosis that can eventually progress to skin
cancer."
