Medgenics Announces EPODURE To Be Presented In Poster Session At The American Society Of Nephrology’s Kidney Week 2012

Medgenics, Inc. (NYSE Amex: MDGN and AIM: MEDU, MEDG) (the “Company”), the developer of a novel technology for the sustained production and delivery of therapeutic proteins in patients using their own tissue, today announced the Company will be presenting a poster at the upcoming American Society of Nephrology’s Kidney Week 2012, taking place from October 30 to November 4 in San Diego.

The poster, titled “Novel Sustained Delivery of Erythropoietin in Hemodialysis Patients for Safer Anemia Control using EPODURE™ Biopumps – Autologous Dermal Tissue Samples Secreting Erythropoietin,” presents preliminary data from a Phase IIa clinical trial of EPODURE to treat anemia patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD).

EPODURE is an autologous dermal Biopump capable of the sustained secretion of therapeutic erythropoietin (“EPO”) in the body using a small tissue explant from the patient’s own skin and processed to continuously produce EPO for many months. The EPODURE Biopump is subsequently implanted subcutaneously into the patient to provide continuous delivery of EPO.

Posters will be showcased in Poster Reception Halls A - C from November 1-3 and will be available for viewing on those days from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with presentations taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Medgenics’ poster will be presented at Kidney Week 2012 on Friday, November 2nd.
