I warmly welcome her to the team," says Xintelas CEO Evy Lundgren-Åkerlund.

Xintela develops medical products for regenerative medicine and cancer based on its proprietary marker technology, XINMARK®. Xintela uses the technology to select and assure the quality of mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of cartilage damage and osteoarthritis. In a study on horses, the company has shown that stem cells are safe to use and that they have a positive effect on the articular cartilage and the underlying bone after an injury. XINMARK® is also used for the development of an antibody-based treatment (Antibody Drug Conjugate, ADC) against glioblastoma, the most common and aggressive form of brain tumors in adults. Positive preclinical results from cell studies and animal model have shown that the antibody has a killing effect on glioblastoma cells and thus has confirmed the concept. Xintela is listed on Nasdaq First North Stockholm since 22 March 2016. Xintela's Certified Adviser at Nasdaq First North is Erik Penser Bank AB, +46 8-463 80 00.
