About Pulse Biosciences

Pulse Biosciences is a novel medical therapy company bringing to market
its proprietary CellFX™ System. The Company’s novel CellFX System
provides a precise, non-thermal delivery of nanosecond duration energy
pulses that impact cells in treated tissue while sparing non-cellular
tissue. This unique mechanism of action disrupts the functions of
internal cell structures while maintaining the outer cell membrane,
initiating a cascade of events within the cell that results in regulated
cell death. The novel characteristics of the Company’s CellFX System has
the potential to significantly benefit patients across multiple medical
applications, including dermatology, the Company’s first planned
commercial application. In pre-clinical studies, Nano-Pulse Stimulation™
(NPS™) has demonstrated an ability to induce immunogenic cell death in
several cancer cell lines. The Company believes its NPS platform
technology may play a role in immuno-oncology as a focal tumor treatment
that can initiate an adaptive immune response. More information can be
found at www.pulsebiosciences.com.

Caution: Pulse Biosciences’ CellFX System and Nano-Pulse Stimulation
(NPS) are for investigational use.
