Press Release Communiqué de presse - April 28, 2021 28 April, 2021

Sernova KOL Event Highlights Novel Cell Therapy Approach for the Potential Treatment of Thyroid Disease


April 28, 2021 9:00 AM ET

LONDON, ONTARIO – April 28, 2021 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V:SVA)(OTCQB:SEOVF)(FSE/XETRA:PSH), a leading clinical-stage regenerative medicine therapeutics company, announced today the highlights of its first virtual Key Opinion Leader (KOL) event on thyroid disease.

The KOL event featured a presentation by Dr. Sam Wiseman, a leading surgeon and internationally recognized expert in the management of thyroid and parathyroid disease. In his presentation, Dr. Wiseman discussed current treatment options and the potential for a novel cell therapy approach for the treatment of postoperative hypothyroidism using Sernova’s Cell Pouch™. The presentation was followed by a Q&A session with attendees.

“I’m very excited about this program because as surgeons, we will be able to offer our patients a treatment option that could allow for avoidance of postoperative hypothyroidism requiring life-long dependence on thyroid medication,” said Dr. Sam Wiseman. “Our preclinical study evaluating transplantation of human thyroid tissue into Sernova’s Cell Pouch has shown promising results. I believe this very exciting new approach represents a critical step towards an entirely new treatment option for post-thyroidectomy hypothyroidism."

Dr. Wiseman's presentation and the subsequent Q&A session are now available on Sernova's website at www.sernova.com and on Sernova’s social media channels.

ABOUT SERNOVA'S THYROID PROGRAM

Sernova's approach for treating postoperative hypothyroidism is to transplant a portion of the thyroid gland being removed into a pre-implanted vascularized Cell Pouch™ to recover thyroid function. In collaboration with Dr. Wiseman, preclinical proof of concept study conducted under a grant from the British Columbia Transplant Foundation is contributing to advancing Sernova's plans to conduct clinical assessment of this novel approach. Sernova's overall treatment goal is to preserve thyroid function, and improve patient quality of life, relative to current treatments.

Thyroidectomy is commonly performed for management of cancer, and for treatment of benign (non- cancerous) disease that includes nodules, goitre and hyperthyroidism. It is estimated that about 150,000 thyroidectomies are performed in the US annually, with most individuals undergoing thyroid surgery eventually being diagnosed with benign conditions. Patients undergoing total thyroidectomy, and many patients undergoing partial thyroidectomy, require life-long oral postoperative thyroid hormone replacement.

Post-surgical thyroid hormone replacement therapy, if monitored carefully, can be effective; however, some patients may suffer from deleterious side-effects including body weight gain, fatigue, and depression, with a resultant negative impact on quality of life, and significant costs to the healthcare system. We believe Sernova's development of new therapeutic strategies to treat post-surgical hypothyroidism has the potential of addressing an important unmet medical need.

ABOUT SERNOVA'S HYPOTHYROID PROGRAM

Sernova's immediate approach in treating hypothyroid disease is to transplant healthy thyroid tissue following thyroidectomy (removal of the thyroid gland) into the pre-implanted vascularized Cell Pouch to recover the normal function of the thyroid gland. In collaboration with Dr. Wiseman, preclinical proof of concept work conducted under a grant from the British Columbia Transplant Foundation is contributing to advancing Sernova's plans to conduct clinical assessment of the Cell Pouch with transplanted thyroid tissue in patients suffering from hypothyroid disease. Sernova's treatment goal is to preserve thyroid function and improve patient quality of life relative to current treatments.

Thyroidectomy is commonly performed for cancer diagnosis or treatment and for treatment of benign (non- cancerous) disease that includes goiter and hyperthyroidism. It is estimated that about 150,000 thyroidectomies are performed in the US yearly, and the majority of individuals undergoing a thyroid operation are diagnosed with benign diseases after their procedure. Patients with Grave's disease and thyroid nodules undergoing total thyroidectomy, and many patients undergoing partial thyroidectomy require life-long thyroid hormone replacement.

Post-surgical thyroid hormone replacement therapy, if monitored carefully, can be effective; however, patients often suffer from deleterious side-effects including weight gain, depression, headaches, and cardiovascular disease, with resultant negative impact on quality of life, and significant costs to the healthcare system. We believe Sernova's development of new therapeutic strategies to overcome hypothyroidism has the potential to meet an important unmet medical need.

Press Release Communiqué de presse - April 14, 2021 14 April, 2021

Sernova Appoints Internationally Renowned Thyroid Disease Expert Dr. Sam Wiseman to its Scientific Advisory Board


Sernova Expands Scientific Advisory Board Expertise for its Innovative Cell Therapy Therapeutic Applications in Endocrine Disorders Including Thyroid Disease

April 14, 2021 9:00 a.m. EST

LONDON, ONTARIO – April 14, 2021 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V: SVA) (OTCQB: SEOVF) (FSE/XETRA: PSH), a leading clinical-stage company developing regenerative medicine therapeutic technologies for the long-term treatment of chronic diseases, today announced the appointment of Dr. Sam Wiseman to its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Wiseman to Sernova’s Scientific Advisory Board,” said Dr. Philip Toleikis, President & CEO Sernova Corp. “Dr. Wiseman’s internationally recognized leadership in surgical treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disease and his forward-thinking interest in Sernova’s development of novel cell therapy-based applications will be a great asset as we seek to expand the clinical applications of our cell pouch platform.”

“The importance of the thyroid gland in controlling everyday bodily functions is often underappreciated. For people who have their thyroid gland removed, the solution relies on lifelong dependence on medication,” said Dr. Sam Wiseman. “Sernova’s cell therapy approach aims at providing a functional cure and improving the quality of life for these patients by allowing them to reduce or potentially eliminate daily thyroid hormone treatments. I am excited to join Sernova’s Scientific Advisory Board and bring my expertise to support them in the development of novel cell-based approaches for treatment of thyroid disease and potentially other endocrine diseases.”

Dr. Sam Wiseman is an academic thyroid/parathyroid surgeon and internationally recognized expert in the management of thyroid and parathyroid disease. He is Professor of Surgery in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and is an attending surgeon at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.

At Roswell Park Cancer Institute, he completed fellowships in Head & Neck Surgery, Surgical Oncology, and Oncology Research. Dr. Wiseman joined the staff at St. Paul's Hospital, and the University of British Columbia in 2003. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and a Consultant Surgical Oncologist at the British Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA). He currently serves as the Research Head for the Department of Surgery at Providence Health Care and is the Chair of the Endocrine Tumour Group of the BCCA. He has authored more than 150 peer-reviewed scientific publications, numerous book chapters, and served as a senior editor of the medical textbook, Gray’s Surgical Anatomy. Dr. Wiseman’s research has been presented globally and he has received numerous awards and honours throughout his career that include a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award and Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 Award. He is passionate about education and mentors and supervises many trainees, both clinically and in research. He is committed to providing new therapeutic options and treatment approaches for patients suffering from thyroid/parathyroid diseases with the ultimate goal of improving quality of life for these people.

ABOUT SERNOVA’S THYROID DISEASE PROGRAM

Sernova is utilizing its Cell Pouch Platform as a potential treatment for hypothyroid disease. Our approach is to transplant a patient’s own healthy thyroid tissue following thyroidectomy into the pre-implanted vascularized Cell Pouch to preserve the normal thyroid function and reduce or eliminate the need for lifelong daily thyroid replacement therapy. Sernova plans to conduct clinical assessments of the Cell Pouch with transplanted thyroid tissue in patients suffering from post-surgical hypothyroidism with the aim of preserving thyroid function and improving patient quality of life.

Thyroidectomy is commonly performed for cancer diagnosis or treatment and for treatment of benign (non- cancerous) disease that includes goiter and hyperthyroidism. It is estimated that about 150,000 thyroidectomies are performed in the US yearly.

Press Release Communiqué de presse - March 15, 2021 15 March, 2021

Sernova Provides Positive Outlook Regarding the Development of Its Innovative Therapeutics Platform Technology for Chronic Diseases


Sernova is the first and only regenerative medicine therapeutics platform company to demonstrate a well- vascularized subcutaneous islet transplant technology achieving persistent islet graft function in diabetic patients

Sernova CEO hosting an investor conference call on March 18, 2021 at 11:00 am (EDT)

March 15, 2021 9:00 a.m. EDT

LONDON, ONTARIO – March 15, 2021 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V:SVA) (FSE/XETRA:PSH) (OTCQB:SEOVF), a clinical-stage regenerative medicine company, today provides a Corporate Update and highlights recent key achievements in its pipeline, including its diabetes clinical program as well as other leading development programs.

“I am pleased that our clinical study based on our unique technology platform continues to contribute significant advancements to the field of regenerative medicine therapeutics. This is demonstrated by ongoing positive patient outcomes in safety, tolerability, and efficacy measures as we actively approach completion of full study enrolment. These advancements are occurring despite ongoing global uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this restrictive environment, Sernova also achieved significant advancements in our other therapeutic programs and in the development of technologies that we believe are building significant shareholder value and justified optimism for patients suffering from chronic diseases. As validation of our strategic approach, we are pleased with the recently completed institutional led bought deal financing of $23M. We are aggressively moving forward with all of our programs,” said Dr. Philip Toleikis, President and CEO of Sernova.

DIABETES : SERNOVA’S LEAD CLINICAL INDICATION

Sernova’s principal investigator in its US Phase I/II diabetes clinical trial, Dr. Piotr Witkowski, presented an update at the recent 2021 21st Winter Symposium of the American Society of Transplant Surgeons based on data from its current clinical trial: A Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy -Study of Sernova's Cell Pouch for Clinical Islet Transplantation.

Five of the 7 planned patients have been enrolled, implanted with the Cell Pouch, and are advancing through the transplantation phases of the study.

The following key findings to date have been noted in our trial patients:

• The Primary Safety Endpoint of the study continues to be met:

o the Cell Pouch, following implantation under the skin, shows consistent incorporation with vascularized tissue in multiple patients providing a suitable environment for the survival and function of insulin producing cells; and

o the implanted Cell Pouch and therapeutic cells continue to demonstrate a positive safety profile with no serious adverse events related to the Cell Pouch.

• The Secondary Efficacy measures continue to show clinical benefit in the most advanced treated patients including:

o absence of life-threatening hypoglycemic episodes;

o enduring presence of insulin produced by the Cell Pouch transplanted cells (measured by the biomarker C- peptide) in the bloodstream;

o reduction or elimination in the daily amount of insulin injected; and

o a reduction in HbA1c, a measure of long-term blood sugar control, which can lead to reduced diabetic complications.

Pre-screening of the final two patients is actively underway to complete study enrollment.

HEMOPHILIA A

Sernova as a member of the Horizon 2020 HemAcure Consortium (HemAcure Consortium) presented results of the Consortium’s research at the American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy. Importantly, the following highlights were presented:

• hemophilia A patients unable to express the required clotting factor VIII (FVIII) blood cells were isolated;

• the human FVIII gene responsible for the production of the missing required clotting factor was successfully inserted to achieve a therapeutic effect;

• the safety of these newly corrected cells and their ability to produce sufficient human clotting factor both in laboratory and in an initial preclinical animal model was confirmed.

o human FVIII blood levels reached up to 10%, which is considered sufficient to enable patients to regain their clotting ability;

o these corrected therapeutic cells in the Cell Pouch were successfully assessed in a preclinical model of hemophilia A showing long-term survival of cells;

o human FVIII was also detected in the bloodstream long-term (measured up to four months, the length of the study, following treatment); and

• data further confirmed functional clotting improvement in the blood at the four months time point where human FVIII corrected cells transplanted into the hemophilia A preclinical model restored the animals clotting activity to a therapeutic level within the Cell Pouch.

“These results demonstrate the success in developing a novel approach for the treatment of hemophilia A. These results continue to showcase Sernova’s Cell Pouch platform technologies for the treatment of multiple indications including rare diseases where a gene can be inserted into cells to produce any protein or factor required to treat disease,” added Toleikis. “We look forward to completing work to bring this and other novel therapies to human clinical testing as soon as practicable.”

HYPOTHYROID DISEASE

Sernova is developing a treatment for hypothyroid disease following complete or partial removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy). To advance this platform technology, in collaboration with Dr. Sam Wiseman and in part funded by a Transplant Venture Grant awarded by the Transplant Research Foundation (TRF) of British Columbia, we are assessing healthy human thyroid tissue in preparation of a clinical program.

This new treatment approach allows patients to preserve their thyroid function following a thyroidectomy by transplanting healthy thyroid cells into Sernova’s Cell Pouch. Currently completed pre-clinical work is setting the stage for a regulatory submission for this second clinical program.

PLATFORM EXPANDING TECHNOLOGIES AND CORPORATE COLLABORATIONS

Sernova is acquiring and developing state of the art technologies. These involve both unique cell encapsulating technologies and gene editing technologies to reduce or eliminate the need for immunosuppression medications targeted to our specific cell therapy clinical applications within the Cell Pouch platform.

• Sernova has acquired all the patented technology and knowhow for a cellular local immune protection technology (Conformal Coating Technology)

o an exclusive worldwide license agreement with the University of Miami was signed, broadening this technology scope.

o Sernova intends on bringing the Cell Pouch platform technologies, which includes conformally coated therapeutic cell technology, to the clinic first for our diabetes donor and stem cell programs with the goal to improve current cell therapy treatment options.

• Sernova also entered into a collaboration agreement with AgeX Therapeutics to utilize their UniverCyte™ technology. The objective is to generate transplantable genetically engineered stem cells that are immune protected to treat diseases for use in Sernova’s Cell Pouch.

Sernova is in active collaborations with leading global pharmaceutical companies for multiple cell therapy clinical applications in combination with Sernova’s cell therapy therapeutic platform and technologies. The goal of these collaborations is to initiate co-development and/or licensing agreements, as well as the potential ability to market and distribute our regenerative medicine therapeutics worldwide.

Dr. Toleikis will participate in the first of a series of conference calls for shareholders to provide corporate updates and answer questions at 11:00 am (EDT) on March 18, 2021. A presentation will be made available on Sernova’s website before the call. All questions to Dr. Toleikis can be submitted to info@sernova.com prior to the call.
