Date:9/3/2009

residential appointee to the National Bioethics Advisory Commission, the principal advisory body to the President and Congress on ethical issues in the biomedical and life sciences. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Anadys Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), and a Trustee of the Berklee College of Music.

"I am delighted and feel privileged to join Satori's team of world leaders in the field of Alzheimer's research and drug discovery," says Mr. Holtzman. "As recent data from the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative clearly demonstrate, Satori's flagship program focuses on the most compelling target for preventing the progression of Alzheimer's."

Alzheimer's disease is a debilitating disorder characterized by the progressive loss of memory, thought and language. More than 5.2 million people in the US alone suffer from Alzheimer's disease and it is estimated that this form of dementia strikes more than 1 in 8 adults in the US over the age of 65 years. By 2050, it is estimated that the number of new cases each year will double in the US to greater than 959,000. Available therapies provide only temporary symptomatic relief.

On the Satori board, Mr. Holtzman joins Dr. Ives; Dr. Thomas Salzmann, Chairman of the Board and former EVP of Preclinical Development at Merck, and Board member at Sirtris and Concert Pharmaceuticals; Mr. Chris Ehrlich, General Partner at InterWest Partners; Mr. Ed Mathers, Partner at NEA; Dr. Ilan Zipkin, Partner at Prospect Venture Partners; Dr. Bennett Shapiro, PureTech Senior Partner and former EVP of Basic and External Research at Merck; and Ms. Daphne Zohar, PureTech Managing Partner.
