Company Description (as filed with the SEC)
We are a life science company developing proprietary products to improve the treatment of female infertility based on recent scientific discoveries about the existence of egg precursor cells. In 2004, one of our scientific founders, Jonathan Tilly, Ph.D., from the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, or MGH, discovered the existence of egg precursor cells within the ovaries of adult mice. Subsequent research by Dr. Tilly demonstrated that these egg precursor cells also exist in human ovaries and have the potential to mature into eggs and, therefore, to replenish a woman's egg supply. These discoveries put into question the long held belief that a woman is born with a finite number of eggs. This research also demonstrated that these egg precursor cells might provide a source of fresh cellular components, such as mitochondria, that could potentially be used to enhance the quality of existing eggs. ...
