ACT Interim Chairman and CEO Gary Rabin to Present at World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress in London
Date:5/5/2011

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. ("ACT"; OTCBB: ACTC), a leader in the field of regenerative medicine, announced today that interim chairman and CEO Gary Rabin will be presenting at the World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress, May 9-11, in London.

Mr. Rabin's presentation, titled "Using ESC-Derived RPE Cells for Dry AMD and Stargardt's Disease," will be given on Monday, May 9.  In it, he will provide an update on ACT's forthcoming human clinical trials for Dry Age-Related Macular Degeneration (Dry AMD) and Stargardt's disease.

ACT recently announced Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval of its Phase 1/2 clinical trials for the treatment of macular degeneration with human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells to be conducted at UCLA's Jules Stein Eye Institute.

About SMD, Dry AMD and Degenerative Diseases of the Retina

Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy (SMD) is one of the most common forms of macular degeneration in the world.  SMD causes progressive vision loss, usually starting in children between 10 to 20 years of age.  Eventually, blindness results from photoreceptor loss associated with degeneration in the pigmented layer of the retina, called the retinal pigment epithelium or RPE cell layer.

Degenerative diseases of the retina are among the most common causes of untreatable blindness in the world.  As many as thirty million people in the United States and Europe suffer from macular degeneration, which represents a $25-30 billion worldwide market that has yet to be effectively addressed.  Approximately 10% of people ages 66 to 74 will have symptoms of macular degeneration, the vast majority the "dry" form of AMD – which is currently untreatable. The prevalence increases to 30% in patients 75 to 85 years of age.
