Date:4/18/2008

EATONTOWN, N.J., April 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Osteotech, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTE), a leader in the emerging field of biologic solutions for regenerative medicine, announced today that it has renewed its exclusive tissue recovery agreement with The Euro Atlantic Transplant Alliance ("EATA"), a Bulgarian public non-profit foundation. The agreement, which was effective April 1, 2008, is for an initial term of seven years and automatically renews for successive four year terms unless a written notice of intent to terminate is provided by either party at least twelve months prior to the end of the initial, or any renewal term. This new agreement replaces a previous agreement that was due to expire in early 2009.

Sam Owusu-Akyaw, President and Chief Executive Officer of Osteotech, stated, "We are very pleased to renew our relationship with the Republic of Bulgaria and the EATA. Through the tissue recovery efforts of both organizations over the past five years, Osteotech has been able to use its processing and product technologies to bring safe and clinically effective OsteoBiologic products to the European market for use by surgeons to alleviate pain, promote biologic healing and restore function."

Dr. Roman A. Hitchev, President and Chief Medical Officer of TB Osteocentre Bulgaria EAD, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Osteotech, commented, "We have had an excellent working relationship with the EATA over the last five years and together have established a successful tissue recovery system in the Republic of Bulgaria. We look forward to continuing our outstanding relationship with the EATA and, working with the EATA, to successfully integrate the Bulgarian tissue recovery and transplantation system into the tissue exchange system of the European Union."

Dr. Galina V. Balabanova, M.D., Executive Director of the EATA, remarked, "Osteotech and Osteocentre Bulgaria have been excellent partners and supporters of tissue banking in Bulgaria. They have a rich tradition in technological advancement and quality. Osteotech is also a key financial supporter of the collaboration we have with the Scoliosis Research Society, which allows us to provide pediatric spinal deformity surgery for children without healthcare insurance coverage."

The EATA, a public non-profit foundation authorized under the Bulgarian Transplant Law of 2007 and organized under the Bulgarian Public Foundations Law of 2001, is responsible for funding healthcare projects in Bulgaria for the public benefit, tissue transplantation, international patient referral services and pediatric spinal deformity surgery for children without healthcare insurance coverage. The EATA also provides financial management and fundraising to hospitals and providers participating in the Bulgarian national donor recovery network.
