Healtheuniverse Patented Non-Embryonic Stem Cell Technology in Development for Use in the $15 Billion Plastic, Reconstructive, and Cosmetic Surgery Market

COVINA, CA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Healtheuniverse Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HLUN), a biotechnology development firm engaged in research, development and commercialization of regenerative medicine therapies utilizing non-embryonic adult stem cells, announced today that the Company's adipose derived stem cell technology is under development for use in the $15 billion worldwide plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery market. The Company intends to sell its proprietary technology through packaged products and licensing agreements, once human clinical trials are completed, to plastic and cosmetic surgeons as a simple way for the industry to utilize our proprietary technology worldwide.

Cosmetic surgery can be performed with stem-cell generated natural tissues instead of synthetic implants. Saline and silicone implants for breast augmentation may rupture, leak, and interfere with breast cancer detection on mammograms. Stem cell generated natural tissue implants created through the use of the Company's commercially packaged product line could provide a superior product and also avoid these problems.

The market for plastic, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgery procedures today exceeds $15 billion per year. It's estimated that cosmetic surgery procedures represent approximately $10 billion of industry revenues. Plastic Surgery encompasses both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, commonly referred to as cosmetic surgery. While not essential to physical health, aesthetic surgery can improve the appearance of normal body features and enhance self-image.
