East Millstone, New Jersey, August 22, 2005 – Life Sciences Research, Inc.

Andrew Baker, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “This move to the world’s most prestigious stock exchange marks an important milestone for LSR.  The growing visibility LSR has enjoyed in the investment community has played an important part in our qualifying for the NYSE.
