FDA's Hydroxycut Recall Highlights the Need for Stem Cell Innovations' ACTIVTox Human Liver Testing
Date:5/21/2009

HOUSTON, May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stem Cell Innovations' (Pink Sheets: SCLL) ACTIVTox(R) human liver toxicity tests are the only products on the market using a standardized human liver cell line to identify potential toxicities associated with nutraceuticals and dietary supplements. This system is available now and can be used to help prevent future liver-related damage and death.

"The use of our ACTIVTox testing system could help prevent recalls associated with liver toxicity," said James H. Kelly, PhD, CEO of Stem Cell Innovations, Inc. "ACTIVTox allows manufacturers to evaluate potential liver issues before release. This can be particularly important in the use of botanical extracts where both growing conditions and the extraction procedure can have dramatic effects on the composition of the final product."

ACTIVTox is designed to identify human liver toxicities associated with drugs, nutraceuticals and food supplements. "Consumers often have the impression that plant-based products are totally benign where, in fact, many of the most potent chemicals ever identified are plant products," said Kelly. "Particularly with the complex manufacturing challenges associated with the use of crude plant extracts, cell-based testing can give an extra measure of comfort to both the consumer and the producer. Considering the cost of developing, manufacturing and marketing new products, ACTIVTox testing protects your investment."
