Ekkyo Presents a Positive Assessment one Year After the Launch of EkkyLite(TM), its New Scar Healing System

MARSEILLE, France, October 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Ekkyo(TM), a photomedicine company that develops first-in-class laser-based systems for skin scar prevention and reduction is presenting today, one year after the commercial launch of EkkyLite(TM), its assessment through some key figures:

    - More than 50 French surgeons have used the EkkyLite(TM) system
    - Almost 200 patients have been treated during surgical operations,
      directly in the operating room
    - 10 French centres are already equipped with the EkkyLite(TM) laser,
      allowing coverage of the main regions in France
    - 8 foreign countries are now working with EkkyLite(TM) through a network
      of distributors

Ekkyo has also set up a national register to log and measure the development of the healing process for each patient treated. This confidential register provides personalised access for each practitioner equipped with an EkkyLite (TM) system, allowing them to register the patients treated and also giving them the possibility of publishing scientific articles related to the results obtained.

"This register is a genuine multicentre database updated in real time," comments Alain Cornil, Ekkyo's CEO.

"The development of EkkyLite(TM), both in France and abroad, confirms the potential of our approach and allows us, in return, to enrich our clinical database," adds Cornil "Thanks to this enlarged palette of users, we will very soon be able to present new clinical results."

In the final quarter of 2009, Ekkyo continues to progress and will present EkkyLite(TM) at a national level and, thanks to its network of distributors at an international level, at the following conventions: 10 October: EkkyLite(TM) will be represented by the Austrian distributor, STRADIS, at a convention organised by Austrian Plastic Surgery Society. Alexandre Capon, reference surgeon, will also speak on the LASH (Laser Assisted Skin Healing) technique during the lunch symposia. 16 October: Portuguese plastic surgery convention in Lisbon. From the 23 to the 27 October: plastic surgery 2009 in Seattle. An international convention bringing together more than 3000 surgeons from all over the world. From the 23 to the 25 November: An undisputed name in the world of plastic surgery, the Societe Francaise de Chirurgie Plastique, Reparatrice et Esthetique (SOFCPRE - French Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery) is organising its 54th convention this year at the CNIT in Paris. The Ekkyo team will be present on stand number 29 and will have the opportunity to officially announce the results of the clinical study carried out since 2007.

About Ekkyo

Created in 2006, Ekkyo is a photomedicine company that develops and markets first-in-class scar-healing devices to reduce scarring and improve post-surgical comfort.

The first laser-assisted skin healing system and the first product marketed by the company, EkkyLite(TM) assists the surgeon right after the critical moment of wound closure, at the early stage of the skin-healing process. By applying a precisely controlled heat stress early in the inflammatory phase of the skin healing process, EkkyLite(TM) makes possible to stimulate and accurately control the balance between skin repair and regeneration. Results confirm the benefits if this LASH(R) (Laser Assisted Skin Healing) technology: enhanced healing with a significantly reduced scar thus repaired tissue is similar to normal skin in its structure.

By this new approach Ekkyo's ambition is to make laser technology available to all, to surgeons first and tomorrow to all doctors facing skin healing issues, and so to contribute to improve the comfort of the intervention and the quality of life of the 70 million patients who are confronted every year to problems of skin healing.

Based in Aix en Provence, France, Ekkyo has 20 staff members as of September 2009.
