BOSTON & TORRANCE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#InvestorRelationsLaVoieHealthScience
(LHS), an integrated investor and public relations agency focused on
advancing health and science innovations, today announced that it has
added Emmaus
Life Sciences, Inc.
(Emmaus) to its client roster. LHS provides
strategic communications programming to Emmaus, helping to ensure all
stakeholders – including patients, healthcare practitioners, investors,
and other audiences – are educated and aware of sickle cell disease and
Emmaus’ dedication to patients with this orphan disease.

Emmaus has a history rooted in scientific discovery. Endari™
(L-glutamine oral powder), approved in July 2017, was developed by
Emmaus’ Chairman and CEO Yutaka Niihara, M.D., MPH. Dr. Niihara began
researching the benefits of L-glutamine more than 25 years ago in 1992,
as a physician treating sickle cell patients at the Los Angeles
Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Today, the
company’s product pipeline includes the potential use of L-glutamine to
treat diverticulosis, a GI condition affecting millions, as well as
diabetes. In addition, Emmaus is researching cell-sheet technology for
treatment of limbal stem-cell deficiency, an orphan disease.

“We understand the importance of extending our visibility and building
patient awareness of the treatment options for this debilitating orphan
disease,” commented Kurt Kruger, CFO of Emmaus Life Sciences. “LHS, with
its focus and expertise in the health and life science industry and
connections with influencers, investment community and media make it the
right partner for Emmaus.”

“We are honored to be working with Emmaus, a company led by Dr. Niihara
that is truly passionate about patients and committed to medical
innovation,” said Donna L. LaVoie, President & CEO of
LaVoieHealthScience. “We are aligned with Emmaus’ passion to help
patients afflicted with sickle cell disease and to raise the visibility
of this disease, and the company’s important contributions to this
underserved patient community.”
