ABOUT SERNOVA’S CELL POUCH SYSTEM

The Cell Pouch system including the Cell Pouch, which is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macro- encapsulation device solution designed for the long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells. The device is designed to incorporate with tissue, forming highly vascularized tissue chambers for the transplantation and function of therapeutic cells which then release proteins and hormones as required to treat disease. The Cell Pouch along with therapeutic cells has been shown to provide long-term safety and efficacy in small and large animal models of diabetes and has been proven to provide a biologically compatible environment for insulin-producing cells in humans. In early assessments of its ongoing Phase I/II clinical trial, Sernova has shown presence of blood levels of c-peptide both during glucose tolerance tests as well as under fasting conditions. Clinical testing is ongoing at the University of Chicago.

Press Release Communiqué de presse - February 18, 2021 18 February, 2021

Sernova Announces Second Annual Data Safety Monitoring Board Review of its Diabetes Cell Pouch System™ Clinical Trial and Recommendation for Protocol Continuation


Ongoing Safety of Sernova's Clinical Trial Confirmed

February 18, 2021 9:00 a.m. EST

LONDON, ONTARIO – February 18, 2021 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V:SVA)(OTCQB:SEOVF)(FSE:PSH), a clinical- stage company and leader in regenerative medicine therapeutics, is pleased to announce that the clinical trial independent Data Safety Monitoring Board ("DSMB") has completed the second planned annual review of the ongoing Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy Study of Sernova's Cell Pouch™ for Clinical Islet Transplantation Phase I/II clinical trial in patients with severe hypoglycemia unawareness and inability to produce their own insulin. The DSMB recommended that the Phase I/II clinical study should continue according to the study protocol and any related amendments. In their assessment, the DSMB did not raise any concerns regarding patient safety.

"We are pleased with the second annual independent DSMB review of our Phase I/II clinical trial," said Dr. Philip Toleikis, President & CEO Sernova Corp. "We thank the DSMB for its diligence, guidance and support as Sernova continues progressing the clinical trial."

The DSMB is an independent group of clinical research experts who review the accumulated data to permit a thorough evaluation of patient safety and to ensure the integrity of the study's data and progress towards completion.

ABOUT SERNOVA'S CLINICAL TRIAL

Sernova is conducting a Phase I/II non-randomized, unblinded, single-arm, company-sponsored trial to assess the safety and tolerability of islet transplantation into the company's patented Cell Pouch in diabetic subjects with hypoglycemia unawareness and an inability to produce their own insulin. The secondary objective is to assess efficacy through a series of defined measures. Eligible subjects are implanted with Cell Pouches. Following development of vascularized tissue chambers within the Cell Pouch, subjects are then stabilized on immunosuppression and a dose of purified islets, under strict release criteria, transplanted into the Cell Pouch. A sentinel pouch is removed for an early assessment of the islet transplant. Subjects are followed for additional safety and efficacy measures for approximately six months. At this point, a decision will be made with regards to the transplant of a second islet dose with subsequent safety and efficacy follow-up. Following this period, eligible patients may be administered a single dose of islets through the portal vein. Patients will be then further followed for one year to assess longer-term safety and efficacy. This study is supported in part by funding from JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

For more information on this clinical trial, please visit www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03513939. For more information on enrollment and recruitment details, please visit www.pwitkowski.org/sernova.

Press Release Communiqué de presse - February 04, 2021 4 February, 2021

Sernova Shares Accepted for Trading on the Electronic Trading Platform Xetra in Germany


February 4, 2021 9:00 a.m. EST

LONDON, ONTARIO – February 4, 2021 – Sernova Corp. (TSX-V:SVA)(OTCQB:SEOVF)(FSE:PSH), a leading clinical-stage regenerative medicine therapeutics company, is pleased to announce the start of trading of Sernova shares on Xetra, the electronic trading system of Deutsche Börse AG in Germany (German Securities Identification Number (WKN): A0LBCR, International Securities Identification Number (ISIN): CA81732W1041, German Ticker-Symbol: PSH).

Xetra is an electronic trading platform operated by the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. It offers trading in stocks, funds, bonds, warrants, and commodities contracts. Launched in 1997, the majority of stock market transactions in Germany are through the Xetra trading venue: approximately 90 percent of all trading in shares across all German exchanges is now conducted through Xetra making it the largest of Germany’s stock exchanges. Over 200 trading participants from 16 European countries, United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong are connected via Xetra servers.

Xetra is the first and primary choice for institutional investors with its significantly higher liquidity and narrower price spreads. Given the high turnover (liquidity) on the Xetra trading venue, orders for securities are executed swiftly and at prices in line with the market. Moreover, this principle is supported by Designated Sponsors who post binding purchase and selling prices (quotes) continuously and thus ensure additional liquidity and fair prices, making it the first choice for institutional investors. mwb Wertpapierhandelsbank AG will act as Designated Sponsor (active market maker) to handle the trading of Sernova’s shares on Xetra with immediate effect and therefore contribute to increased trading liquidity.

mwb fairtrade Wertpapierhandelsbank AG (www.mwbfairtrade.com) is a securities service provider licensed by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) with branches near Munich, Hamburg, Hanover, Frankfurt as well as Berlin. Founded in 1993 and active in two business divisions: Securities Trading and Corporates & Markets, mwb manages approximately 40,000 order books for German and international securities as well as 89 Designated Sponsors mandates making mwb one of the largest order book managers in Germany.

“mwb has developed in-depth knowledge on enabling Xetra trading for overseas companies. We are happy to support Sernova with the rollout of their exciting equity story and look forward to enhance Euro-based trading possibilities for their institutional and retail investor base in Europe,” said Sascha Guenon, Head of Designated Sponsoring and Corporate Broking at mwb.

“We are experiencing a significant increase of interest from institutional investors in Europe, especially in German-speaking countries, and want to provide them with a more efficient way to trade our shares," commented Dr. Philip Toleikis, President and CEO of Sernova. "This is an important step to increase the percentage of long-term oriented institutional investors within our group of shareholders who understand the potential of our innovative platform technologies in the regenerative medicine field as well as the valuation gap with our competitors. mwb has a strong network of biotech investors and we are looking forward to presenting the potential of Sernova’s regenerative medicine platform to them.”

ABOUT SERNOVA’S HYPOTHYROID PROGRAM

Sernova’s initial approach in treating hypothyroid disease is to transplant a patient’s own healthy thyroid tissue following thyroidectomy 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 is being conducted under a grant from the British Columbia Transplant Foundation. Following successful completion of preclinical studies, Sernova plans to conduct clinical assessments of the Cell Pouch with transplanted thyroid tissue in patients suffering from hypothyroid disease with the aim to preserve thyroid function and improve 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, 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 medication. 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. The development of new therapeutic strategies to overcome hypothyroidism remains an important unmet medical need.

Additionally, the Company shall pay the Underwriter’s a corporate finance fee payable in Units equal to 2.0% of the aggregate number of Units issued pursuant to the Offering.
