Tissue Regeneration Therapeutics Inc. Grants Excusive Canadian License for Its Patent: Viable Cells From Frozen Umbilical Cord Tissue, For Family Banking

Toronto, Canada, September 25th 2015: Tissue Regeneration Therapeutics
(TRT) announced today an exclusive licensing agreement with Cells for Life, which will
now be able to offer families in Canada the ability to extract stem cells from
cryogenically stored tissue surrounding the vessels of the umbilical cord, a rich source
of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The proprietary extraction method is enabled
through TRT’s human umbilical cord perivascular cell (HUCPVC) patented

TRT is a progressive biotechnology company with a focus on the commercial development
of our patented Human Umbilical Cord PeriVascular Cell (HUCPVC) platform technology
and its TXP family of cell therapy products. TRT has discovered the world’s richest source
of mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (MSCs) with potent regenerative, angiogenic, anti-
inflammatory, and immuno-regulatory properties. Unique advantages of the TRT HUCPVC
platform technology are founded on the highly enriched source of these important cells
compared to other tissue sources. Specifically, HUCPVCs represent high cell yields at
harvest from tissue normally discarded at birth; high frequencies of mesenchymal stromal
cells within the harvested population, their increased biological potential compared to cells
derived from adult tissues and their inexhaustible supply.
