ACT to Be Issued Broad Patent for Human ES Cell-derived RPE Cells in China
Date:3/23/2011

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. ("ACT"; OTC Bulletin Board: ACTC), a leader in the field of regenerative medicine, announced today that China's State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) has allowed the Company's patent application to provide broad intellectual property protection in China for the manufacturing and pharmaceutical preparations of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).  

This Chinese patent filing provides coverage of the scalable manufacturing of human RPE cells from hESCs.  The claims cover methods for producing purified preparations of RPE cells from hESCs, and the use of those hESC-derived RPE cells in pharmaceutical preparations and compositions.

"The fact that we are being awarded a set of broad claims in China, following the issuance of the three far-reaching RPE patents in the U.S. last year, gives us greater confidence that we are in a position to create a dominant patent position around our stem cell-derived RPE program in leading markets around the world," said Gary Rabin, ACT's interim chairman and CEO. "Our progress in obtaining patent protection in China for our RPE program is a testament to the continued recognition of the inventions and innovations resulting from our scientific team's ongoing research, and further protects the platform technology underlying one of our key therapeutic programs."  

The efficient production of highly pure RPE cell preparations derived from human embryonic stem cells represents the first critical step in the creation of a renewable source of transplantable cells that can be used to target macular degenerative diseases such as Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy (SMD) and Dry Age-related Macular Degeneration (Dry AMD). The Company has already demonstrated that its hESC-derived RPE cells can rescue visual
