SAN DIEGO, June 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Dr. Steven Josephs, Ph.D., a former National Cancer Institute (NCI) researcher, has joined Entest BioMedical Inc.'s (www.entestbio.com) Science Advisory Board where he will focus on expanding the company's stem cell cancer research. Dr. Josephs' NCI research involved studies of the human T-cell leukemia virus, HIV and Human Herpervirus-6 genetic characterization.

Entest BioMedical Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of San Diego-based Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BMSN; www.BMSN.us).

According to David Koos, Chairman and CEO of both Entest BioMedical Inc. and Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc., "Dr. Josephs' extensive cancer research background adds strength to our growing Scientific Advisory Board. His insight into potential stem cell therapies for cancer patients will help expedite Entest BioMedical's goal of providing innovative stem cell transplantation therapies and services including autologous and allogenic peripheral blood or bone marrow transplantation.

Dr. Feng Lin, Director of Research for Entest BioMedical and Bio-Matrix Scientific Group, also applauded the addition of Dr. Josephs' to the Science Advisory Board. "Dr. Josephs joins our life science team at exactly the right time," said Lin. "We're currently interested in differentiating hematopoietic stem cells into immune cells especially T-cells. Dr. Josephs will work with us on our research goal of generating a new population of immune cells from a patient's own stem cells to reactivate the patient's immune system. This strategy represents a novel and effective immunotherapy especially for cancer patients and HIV patients who have injured immune systems and are at high risk of infection with bacteria and viruses."
