litary and in the general population," said Dr. Russell Taichman, Professor of Dentistry, Department of Periodontics and Oral Medicine at the University of Michigan's School of Dentistry who will work with the Company on the study.  

Dr. Taichman added, "Osteoporosis is a major medical condition affecting 75 million people worldwide and causing significant morbidity and mortality in the aging population and the increased incidence of fractures is the major cause of death from osteoporosis. In 2005, the estimated cost burden of fractures due to osteoporosis was $19 billion and that is expected to rise to over $25 billion by the year 2025.

Dr. Denis Rodgerson, NeoStem's Director of Stem Cell Science and Principal Investigator for the study commented, "We are honored to receive this award as it enables us, together with Dr. Taichman as co-Principal Investigator and his colleague Dr. Laurie K. McCauley, Chair, Department of Periodontics and Oral Medicine at the University of Michigan's School of Dentistry and Professor of Pathology at  the University of Michigan Medical School, to explore the significant therapeutic regenerative potential for VSEL™ Technology in autologous, cell-based therapies for the treatment of osteoporosis and other diseases of the bone."

NeoStem has a worldwide exclusive license to VSEL™ Technology which uses very small stem cells found in adult bone marrow that have several physical characteristics that are generally found in embryonic stem cells.  NeoStem has shown that these cells can be mobilized into the peripheral blood, enabling a minimally invasive means for collecting what NeoStem believes to be a population of stem cells that the potent
