Medgenics (NYSE AMEX: MDGN) is developing and commercializing Biopump, a proprietary tissue-based platform technology for the sustained production and delivery of therapeutic proteins using the patient's own skin biopsy for the treatment of a range of chronic diseases including anemia, hepatitis C and hemophilia. Medgenics believes this approach has multiple benefits compared with current treatments, which include regular and costly injections of therapeutic proteins.

The Company disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-­looking statement based on the occurrence of future events, the receipt of new information, or otherwise. 2  
    • Truly Personalized Medicine: Innovative med-­tech and therapeutics company developing sustained protein therapy for chronic diseases. Continuous protein production and delivery from Designed to be better, safer and cheaper, replacing scores of injections, in $130b protein market. Potentially offering major advantages in treating a wide range of chronic diseases starting with anemia, hepatitis C and hemophilia. 3  
    • Key Considerations:  Publicly Listed: NYSE Amex: MDGN;; LSE AIM: MEDU, MEDG Proprietary Biopump, an autologous tissue-­based platform technology for the sustained production and delivery of therapeutic proteins. 3 lead products address markets >$16B/yr in anemia, hepatitis C and hemophilia. EPODURE  in  Phase  I/II  dosing  trials,  producing  EPO  in  anemia  patients  with  CKD.   INFRADURE  preparing  to  commence  Phase  I/II  trials  in  Israel  for  production  of  IFN-­a   to  treat  hepatitis  C.   HEMODURE  being  developed  as  a  sustained  Factor  VIII  therapy  for  the  prophylactic   treatment  of  hemophilia.   A single treatment in anemic patients shown to last 6-­28 months. Solid IP protection: 10 issued and 50+ pending patents. First validating pharma deal: Baxter for hemophilia, Factor VIII Biopump. Experienced management;; founded in 2000, based in Israel and U.S. 4  
    • Our Biopump Method:1. Harvest  the  tissue  by  needle  biopsy  from    2. Process tissue  into  a  drug  producing   Biopump  in  10-­14  days  by  controlled   Biopump and a toothpick transfer  of  desired  gene.  3.

    • Unique Platform, Disruptive Potential: Platform for sustained production and delivery of therapeutic proteins Current focus anemia, hepatitis C and hemophilia: Concept proven with EPODURE EPO Biopumps in anemia patients with unprecedented results from single administration: Potentially much more cost effective treatment. Designed to be implemented using standard facilities and procedures. 11  
    • Potential Healthcare Advantages:Increased efficacy: Sustained  dose  within  therapeutic  window.  Improved safety:  not  produced  in  rodent  cells.   Fewer  side  effects  resulting  from  overdose.   The BiopumpImproved patient compliance: therapeutic system Replaces  frequent  injections.   could change the Reliable  treatment    not  dependent  on  patient.   paradigm for theReduced costs: treatment of chronic Does  not  require  an  expensive  protein    manufacturing   diseases. facility.  Reversible treatment: Simple  process  (ablation).  Extend treatment to under-­treated populations: Existing  treatment  impractical  or  too  costly.   12  
    • Lead Products: EPODURE (anemia) Sustained EPO therapy ($9.6B/yr) could replace  $15-­30,000/yr/patient  in injections, offering: Superior  treatment  at  lower  cost:  >6-­12  months  sustained  EPO  therapy,  avoid   peak  overdose  risks,  improve  compliance  and  reliability.   Improved  hemoglobin  control,  directly  address  current  key  issues  in  anemia:     FDA  hemoglobin  safety,  CMS  reimbursement  bundling.   INFRADURE (hepatitis C) Sustained IFN-­a therapy ($2.6B/yr) could replace  $35,000/yr/patient in injections, offering: Effective  treatment  with  greatly  reduced  side  effects    safer,  patient  friendly,   lower  cost  and  unmatched  treatment  interval:  6+  months.   Cost  effective  alternative  for  interferon  therapy,  direct  antiviral  agents.   HEMODURE (hemophilia) Sustained FVIII therapy for ($4B/yr) could replace  >$100-­250,000/yr/patient  injections, potentially offering: PROPHYLACTIC TREATMENT     >  6-­12  months  sustained  FVIII  therapy  from  single  treatment.   Improved  QOL  at  a  lower  cost.   13

    • EPODURE Mid-­dose Sustained Hemoglobin Response: EPODURE   20  
    • Route to Revenues:Regulatory: Safety  already  shown  especially  as  treatment  can  be  reversed;;   providing  clear  route  forward.   QA  designed  in:  automated  processor  using  sealed  cassettes.   Niche:  expedited  route,  small  pivotal  trial  for  approval.  Clinical Pathway Simplified: Delivers  well-­known  proteins  now  in  routine  clinical  use.   Better  delivery  and  compliance.   Better  safety:  own  protein,  no  peak  overdose  or  under-­dose   between  injections  and  ability  to  reverse  or  stop  treatment.  Scale Up: Reliable  method    >5,000  Biopumps  made.   Automated  bioprocessor  with  sealed  cassettes    in  development.  Partnering: Typically  aiming  for  Phase  I/II.   21   Potential  major  revenue  source  before  sales,  based  on  comps.  
    • IP Protection & Practical Application: 10 issued patents, >50 pending patents. Licenses have been acquired for Biopump and related key elements: Factor VIII license from University of Michigan. Freedom to operate: off-­patent proteins or use of cDNA. Towards scale-­up and automation: >5,000 Biopumps produced. Using reliable DermaVac harvest and implantation devices. Prototype semi-­automated processing station demonstrated. New generation processing in development. 22
