Entest BioMedical Files 3rd Patent Application for COPD Stem Cell Treatment
Date:11/18/2009

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Entest BioMedical Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ENTB) announced today the filing of a third patent application relating to the area of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a condition that affects more than 5 million patients in the United States, resulting in more than 120,000 deaths per year. The application covers an implantable medical device useful in re-directing the immune system to stop tissue inflammation.

"The importance of the inflammatory process in COPD is exemplified by the use of broad-acting steroids that reduce inflammation. Unfortunately, these drugs do not address the cause of the inflammation, and have a variety of adverse effects," stated Dr. Stephen Josephs, inventor of the technology.

A recent article "Immunologic aspects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease" by Cosio et al in the June 4th, 2009 issue of New England Medical Journal suggests that COPD may actually be not just a disease of inflammation but, of active immunological attack. The current technology seeks to induce a process in which immunity towards components of the body is blocked.

"To date Entest has filed two previous patent applications covering use of fat stem cell components in COPD and methods of using photoceuticals to enhance stem cell therapy. The current patent application has a variety of derivative uses outside of COPD including treatment of transplantation rejection, and other disease in which the immune system has gone awry," stated David Koos, Entest's CEO.

The essence of the technology is the use of existing implantable devices to deliver chemical/protein signals that specifically stop inflammatory reactions in a manner that is more in tune with biological processes. Instead of us "telling the body" what it should do with a blunt-force approach, as is the standard of care, the current invention uses more natural and slow acting interventions.
