LaVoieHealthScience Adds XenoTherapeutics to Client Roster


Boston-based XenoTherapeutics Aims to Bring Life-Saving Innovation
from The Lab to Address the Global Shortage of Transplantable Organs and

(LHS), an integrated investor and public relations agency focused on
advancing health and science innovations, today announced the addition
of XenoTherapeutics to its client roster as its agency of record for
strategic communications. XenoTherapeutics is partnering with LHS to
build a messaging framework to educate stakeholders on the company's
proprietary platform technology to advance xenotransplantation, the
science of transplanting organs and tissues of different species.

XenoTherapeutics' mission is to provide innovative, affordable, and safe
medical solutions to patients in critical need in both the U.S. and
around the globe. Its initial product candidate, Xeno-Skin, is
intended to serve as a replacement or a complement to the current "gold
standard" of burn treatment: human cadaver allograft. However, unlike
the limited quantity of lifesaving human graft material available, Xeno-Skin
is intended to be mass-produced, stored, and rapidly shipped when
needed. Ultimately, the goal is to increase emergency preparedness for
unexpected catastrophic events at home and fill current shortages
experienced far too frequently around the world today. The
XenoTherapeutics pipeline starts with skin, but envisions myriad
applications of the technology, including nerves and solid organs.

"In selecting a communications partner, we did our due diligence," said
Paul Holzer, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of XenoTherapeutics.
"LHS stood out with its deep understanding of the business and
regulatory aspects of science and medicine, its team of high-touch
senior leaders, and proprietary approach to creating targeted messaging
mapped to stakeholders as the underpinning of a strategic communications
program. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship."

Donna L. LaVoie, President & CEO of LaVoieHealthScience commented, "We
are delighted to be working with the XenoTherapeutics team to bring
attention to their pioneering work in seeking to address the worldwide
shortage of organs for transplantation. Headed by a former U.S. Navy
SEAL, XenoTherapeutics' entrepreneurial culture, sense of purpose, and
innovative technology based on rigorous scientific research has the
potential to be an industry game-changer."
