About Amarantus BioScience Holdings, Inc. 

Amarantus BioScience Holdings (OTCQX:AMBS) is a biotechnology company developing treatments and diagnostics for diseases in the areas of Neurology, Regenerative Medicine and Orphan diseases. The Company has an exclusive worldwide license to intellectual property rights associated with Engineered Skin Substitute (ESS), an autologous full thickness skin replacement product in development for the treatment of adult severe burns, currently preparing to enter Phase 2 clinical studies. In parallel, the Company is evaluating human clinical data from previously conducted studies in pediatric severe burns and Congenital Giant Hairy Nevus to support clinical development expansion into those areas.  ESS has achieved Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) in the area of severe burns, and is seeking ODD status for additional serious dermatologic indications. AMBS also has development rights to eltoprazine, a small molecule currently in clinical development for Parkinson's disease levodopa-induced dyskinesia, an orphan disorder, with the potential to expand into adult ADHD and Alzheimer's aggression. AMBS owns the intellectual property rights to a therapeutic protein known as mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF) and is developing MANF as a treatment for orphan ophthalmic disorders, initially in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and retinal artery occlusion (RAO). AMBS also owns the technology platform that led to MANF's discovery (PhenoGuard™), and which can be used to identify novel neurotrophic factors.

AMBS' Diagnostics division owns the rights to MSPrecise®, a proprietary next-generation DNA sequencing-based test for identifying patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis at first clinical presentation, has an exclusive worldwide license to the Lymphocyte Proliferation test (LymPro Test®) for Alzheimer's disease, (developed by Prof. Thomas Arendt, Ph.D., from the University of Leipzig), and owns intellectual property for the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease (NuroPro).
