Date:5/28/2008

WASHINGTON, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Professor Shimon Slavin of the International Center for Cell Therapy & Cancer (ICTC) at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, and Professor Dimitrios Karussis, senior neurologist at Jerusalem's Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Kerem, are the recipients of the "International Adult Stem Cell Research and Therapeutic Treatments Award 2008" by the Worldwide Center for Adult Stem Cell Education (WCASCE; http://www.Adultstemcelleducation.com). The first-of-its-kind award recognizes Professors Slavin and Karussis' achievements in adult stem cell clinical work and therapeutic treatments. WCASCE is based in Dallas, Texas with offices in Washington, D.C. and Bangkok, Thailand. Its mission is to educate the American public on the potential of adult stem cells for diagnosing, treating, curing and preventing disease.

According to Donald Margolis, WCASCE Chairman and Founder, "Professor Slavin is an expert bone marrow transplantation scientist and clinician. The former Director of Israel's National Stem Cell Transplantation Center at Hadassah before establishing the ICTC, Prof. Slavin will soon be among the few experts who also treat bone repair and reconstruction of cartilage in addition to innovative clinical application of stem cells and cell-mediated immunotherapy for the treatment of hematological malignancies, solid tumors and a broad spectrum of non-malignant disorders treatable by stem cell transplantation. Professors Slavin and Karussis' team are the first in the world to try and help multiple sclerosis and amyotropic lateral sclerosis patients by injecting their spinal fluid with large numbers of adult stem cells (mesenchymal stromal stem cells) taken from their bone marrow and multiplied in culture. Some of the patients' conditions have improved or stabilized in Phase I and II clinical trials."
