Lively discussion of potential therapies using Adult Stem Cells drives awareness among viewers; NeoStem experiences never before seen interest in its services

NEW YORK, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (Amex: NBS) which is pioneering the pre-disease collection, processing and long-term storage of adult stem cells for future medical need, today announced the launch of its adult stem cell public awareness program, a key element of which is Company spokesperson, Suzanne Somers, who talks about the latest medical technology in her New York Times Bestseller "Breakthrough" which includes a chapter dedicated to NeoStem and the benefits of adult stem cell collection and storage. The live filming of Ms. Somers' own stem cell collection at the California HealthSpan Institute in San Diego, a member of the NeoStem adult stem cell collection network aired last month on ABC's "Nightline."

Ms. Somers, herself a 7 year breast cancer survivor, also appeared last week on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," inspiring an audience comprised solely of breast cancer survivors, about the breakthrough therapies being developed using stem cell treatment including the actual re-growth of human breast tissue. She also spoke at length about NeoStem's adult stem cell collection and storage services as well as the Company's CEO, Dr. Robin Smith. (link provided).

Ms. Somers commented, "Developments in stem cell therapy are the most exciting new breakthrough in medicine. It gives me great peace of mind to know that my own stem cells are carefully and privately housed at a NeoStem storage facility, and will be available to me in the future as development of the many potential therapies utilizing adult stem cells by physicians in the US and around the world progresses. I've learned in my life that being 'reactive' to life's misfortunes, is not as productive as being 'proactive', and that is the path on which I choose to live my life."

Dr. Robin Smith, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem commented, "We are thrilled to have as a spokesperson a health and wellness personality with a following as extensive and devoted as Suzanne's and have noted a remarkable 500% increase in recent phone and e-mail inquiries from individuals interested in learning more about our service." Dr. Smith further noted, "Suzanne's ability to communicate with the general public is an important driver in our mission. Suzanne has the track record, the knowledge, and the celebrity appeal to convey our message, which is the importance of stem cell therapy, and more importantly, the need to have your own stem cells banked while you're healthy."

About NeoStem, Inc.

NeoStem is developing a network of adult stem cell collection centers that are focused on enabling people to donate and store their own (autologous) stem cells when they are young and healthy for their personal use in times for future medical need. The Company has also recently entered into research and development through the acquisition of a worldwide exclusive license to technology to identify and isolate VSELs (very small embryonic-like stem cells), which have been shown to have several physical characteristics that are generally found in embryonic stem cells.

About Stem Cells

A stem cell is essentially a "blank" cell, capable of becoming another more differentiated cell type in the body. Microscopic in size, stem cells are important in medical and science circles because they can be used to replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. They can serve as a built-in repair system for the human body, replenishing other cells as long as a person is still alive.
