Healtheuniverse Announces Patented Intellectual Property Utilizing Adult Stem Cells, Offers Alternative to Human Embryonic Stem Cells for Medical Treatment

COVINA, CA--(Marketwire - June 13, 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 patented intellectual property developed by Healtheuniverse may lead to the development of various cell lines that will be utilized to cultivate cells amalgamate to form functional human tissue. These unique cell lines offer an alternative to human embryonic stem cells for medical treatments.

Major commercial applications for these progenitor cell lines will be utilized for both non-surgical and surgical areas. Non-surgical applications will be focused on skin rejuvenation and minor wound reparative processes. Surgical applications will address major wound repair and reconstructive areas such as formation of new skin and bone.

Vipul Dev M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Healtheuniverse stated, "Our research is a promising example that adult stem cells are not necessarily locked into their current fate and we have the potential to reprogram them into becoming other cell types. It is unlikely that one source of stem cells can be used to treat all medical problems and diseases, but different clinical applications could be addressed by using adult cells taken from adipose tissue, without the same ethical concerns associated with embryonic stem cells. In addition adult stem cells have the potential to avoid a critical obstacle posed by embryonic stem cell use -- the possibility that a patient's body could reject the foreign cells."
