On December 3, 2009, the Company filed a 510(k) premarket notification with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking marketing clearance of its Excellagen(TM) product candidate based on positive data from the Company's recently completed Phase 2b Matrix clinical study that demonstrated substantial improvements in wound healing responses in patients with non-healing diabetic foot ulcers following one or two applications of Excellagen, an enhanced, customized collagen-based gel matrix. The application filed with the FDA covers ExcellagenXL(TM) and ExcellagenFX(TM), advanced wound care management medical devices comprising customized collagen protein-based topical gels designed for use by health care professionals for patients with dermal wounds, which can include diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, tunneled/undermined wounds, surgical and trauma wounds, second degree burns, and other types of wounds. The Company also plans to develop and introduce additional new product opportunities by incorporating other agents into the Excellagen formulation, including antimicrobials, DNA and/or other biologics, which will be designed to address particular wound healing and other tissue repair applications.

Forward-Looking Statements

Except for statements of historical fact, the matters discussed in this press release are forward looking and reflect numerous assumptions and involve a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control and may cause actual results to differ materially from stated expectations. For example, there can be no assurance that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will grant marketing clearance of the ExcellagenXL(TM) and ExcellagenFX(TM) product candidates or that we can successfully introduce these or additional products into advanced wound care markets; that Excellagen, Excellarate or our other candidates will prove to be sufficiently safe and effective, or that results or trends observed in one clinical study or procedure will be reproduced in subsequent studies or procedures, or that clinical studies even if successful will lead to product advancement or partnering; that the Excellagen or Excellarate product candidate offers the potential for simpler or more cost-effective treatment for physicians and patients than other FDA-approved products that currently are or will be on the market; that the Matrix clinical study program or other human clinical trials can be conducted and completed in an efficient and successful manner; that we can develop a DNA-based orthobiologics product portfolio; that our products or product candidates will not be unfavorably compared to competitive products that may be regarded as safer, more effective, easier to use or less expensive; that FDA or other regulatory clearances or other certifications, or other commercialization efforts will be successful or will effectively enhance our businesses or their market value; that our products or product candidates will prove to be sufficiently safe and effective after introduction into a broader patient population; or that third parties on whom we depend will perform as anticipated.

Actual results may also differ substantially from those described in or contemplated by this press release due to risks and uncertainties that exist in our operations and business environment, including, without limitation, risks and uncertainties that are inherent in the development of complex biologics and in the conduct of human clinical trials, including the timing, costs and outcomes of such trials, our ability to obtain necessary funding, regulatory approvals and expected qualifications, our dependence upon proprietary technology, our history of operating losses and accumulated deficits, our reliance on collaborative relationships and critical personnel, and current and future competition, as well as other risks described from time to time in filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We undertake no obligation to release publicly the results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances arising after the date hereof.
