(formerly AFCell Medical), one of the leading innovators of allograft implants
from human amniotic membrane in the United States, has received notice that
MiMedx Group, Inc. (MDXG), filed a patent infringement lawsuit against it, its
partner in the wound care market, Medline and Liventa's processing partner,
Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, Inc. (MTF).

inroads of our amniotic tissue wound care coverings among major hospital
networks in the United States. We are also confident that our tissue forms do
not infringe any of the patents asserted by MiMedx."
