Amarantus Announces Three Data Presentations Related to the Company's LymPro Diagnostic Test at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC)

July 7, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO and GENEVA, July 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amarantus BioScience Holdings, (OTCQB:AMBS), a biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of novel diagnostics and therapeutics related to endoplasmic reticulum stress, cell cycle dysregulation, neurodegeneration and apoptosis, today announced that analytical performance, clinical performance and 6-year longitudinal data related to the Company's LymPro Test® will be presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC), held at the Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, July 12-17, 2014.

"We are pleased to be presenting data on three critical aspects of LymPro's diagnostic profile," said Gerald E. Commissiong, President & CEO of Amarantus. "It is critical to properly position LymPro within the scientific community as we advance towards commercialization. We believe this data will provide the basis for pharmaceutical companies to use LymPro initially as a surrogate marker in their trials and for Key Opinion Leaders to add LymPro as a tool in their diagnostic paradigm. These key constituents will be critical for LymPro's initial market adoption."

About LymPro Test

The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test ®) is a diagnostic blood test that measures the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes to withstand an external stimulation inducing them to enter the cell cycle. It is hypothesized that certain diseases are the result of a compromised cellular machinery that leads to abhorrent cell cycle re-entry by neurons. The inventive step for LymPro involves using peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common immune-based relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain. LymPro Test ® is currently being developed as a diagnostic blood test for Alzheimer's disease and is being evaluated as a diagnostic blood test for Traumatic Brain injury and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.
