Date:11/23/2009

BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Light Sciences Oncology, Inc. (LSO) today announced the election of Akbar Seddigh, Chairman of the Board, Elekta, to a newly created seat on its board of directors. Mr. Seddigh is widely known for guiding numerous medical-product companies, including Elekta, to market leadership.

"The appointment of Akbar Seddigh brings additional strength in business development to the board," said LSO's Chairman of the Board Jeff Himawan.

Mr. Seddigh has held managerial positions within Volvo, AB Atomenergi, and the Geological Survey of Sweden. In 1984, he founded the medical-technology company Ortivus, where he was President until the end of the 1990s. He was recruited to Elekta's Board in 1998 and became Chairman in 1999. Elekta is an international medical-technology group, providing clinical solutions, comprehensive information systems, and services for improved cancer care and management of brain disorders. Mr. Seddigh is also Chairman of Inovation Bro (government fund), Hedson Technologies (industrial), and Belekinge Institute of Technology, and Vice-Chairman of the trade group BIO Sweden. He serves on the boards of Swedish companies Formo Services (industrial), Mentice (medical simulation), Affarsstrategerna (venture capital), Biolight (biotech), and Tobii Technology (eye control system).
