ProMetic Life Sciences Inc. began trading today on OTCQX International, a segment of the OTCQX marketplace reserved for high-quality non-U.S. companies listed on a qualified stock exchange in their home country.  U.S. investors can find current financial disclosures and Real-Time Level 2 quotes for the company on www.otcmarkets.com.

"Joining OTCQX fits perfectly with our strategy to further develop our presence in the U.S.," added Mr. Laurin.
