Date:2/25/2009

g rotator cuff and hernia repair surgeries.

"Serica is actively seeking a strategic partner to advance the SeriScaffold product array, particularly in the aesthetic and reconstructive surgery market, while the company continues to advanced its ligament and tendon platform technology in the orthopaedic marketplace," said Altman.

About the Reconstructive and Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Market

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery market represents a wide range of surgical procedures, including nearly 500,000 procedures related to breast reconstruction, reduction and non-cosmetic breast implant removal. Body contouring post massive weight loss represents over 65,000 procedures and cosmetic plastic surgeries total over 856,000 surgical procedures, including breast augmentation, facelifts, neck lifts and tummy tucks.

About Serica's Biomaterials

The body's structural tissue can be destroyed, removed or weakened due to trauma, disease or aging. Serica is developing natural, silk biomaterials designed to act as "scaffolds" to provide support and relief to damaged tissues, in order to promote restored function. The company's ligament grafts for ACL repair, surgical meshes, and gels are comprised of the fiber protein of the B. mori silkworm, which has centuries of human use. In pre-clinical studies, Serica's silk-based products are shown to be bioresorbed at slower rates than other common structural proteins, such as collagen, as well as other water soluble synthetic polymers, to enable optimal healing. Serica's silk-based biomaterials require no re-hydration or advance preparation for surgical implantation.

Serica is developing products for a wide variety of applications where current materials fail to meet the needs of clinicians and patients, including connective tissue r
