Date:3/31/2009

San Diego, CA (March 31, 2009) Novocell, Inc., a stem cell engineering company, today announced that it has received U.S. Patent 7,510,876 with claims covering human definitive endoderm cells, an essential cell for generating not only pancreatic type cells, which Novocell is developing for use as a cell therapy for diabetes, but also other endoderm lineage-derived tissues and organs such as lungs, intestine, liver, thymus and thyroid.

"This composition patent is a milestone achievement for Novocell and is the culmination of extensive research that opened the door to the endoderm lineage," said Fred Middleton, Chairman & Acting CEO of Novocell. "The efficient production of endoderm represents the first critical step in the creation of a renewable islet source derived from hES cells that is targeted at restoring normal glucose regulation in diabetic patients."

"Novocell is a leader in differentiation of stem cells to create functional islet cells of the pancreas, and this broad patent significantly enhances our proprietary position and further secures our investment in the development of a diabetes cell therapy and potentially other endoderm-derived cell products," said Edward Baetge, Ph.D., Senior Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer of Novocell.
