    The Company also announced that Dr. Philip Toleikis, Sernova's President and CEO, will present a company overview at BioContact Quebec, Canada's premiere biopharmaceutical investment and partnering symposium, in Quebec City on Thursday, October 8th.

    Each Unit offered in the private placement shall consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at the price of $0.25 for a period of two years. A finder's fee will be payable of up to 8% of the Units placed, payable in cash or in Units at the option of the finder. Sernova intends to use the proceeds of the private placement for product development activities and for general working capital. Closing is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.

    Dr. Philip Toleikis, President and CEO stated: "This financing will provide the capital for Sernova to continue to aggressively move our product development programs forward, including the validation and optimization of our novel Cell Pouch System(tm) device for cell transplantation."

    The Cell Pouch System(tm) is a proprietary device which has been developed for human use and is a key component of Sernova's platform technology. The Cell Pouch System(tm) will be used initially for treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes and has the potential for use in additional cell transplantation therapies including haemophilia, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's disease and other chronic debilitating diseases.

Sernova is currently developing a platform technology for a number of serious disease indications, starting with a novel treatment for insulin- dependent diabetes, using the novel Cell Pouch System(tm) and its patented Sertolin(tm) cell technology. According to the American Diabetes Association approximately 9 million Americans require insulin injections and it is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States.
