Greatest Satisfaction Preserving Granddaughter's Cord Blood Stem Cells
Date:3/5/2008

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- "I have never experienced greater satisfaction than the gift of preserving my granddaughter's cord blood stem cells."

The quote, from Greg Smith, CEO, Mountain State Blue Cross Blue Shield (MSBCBS), is in reference to the storage of umbilical cord blood by CorCell, Philadelphia, Pa., a Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CBAI) company.

Mr. Smith continues: "The thought of possibly protecting Gracie from a serious disease long after I'm gone is an incredible feeling. I am hopeful many more MSBCBS customers will take advantage of the discount CorCell offers our members."

"We are an umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company (http://www.cordblood-america.com) focused on bringing the life saving potential of stem cells to families nationwide and internationally," said Matthew Schissler, CEO. "To learn about a testimonial, such as the one from Greg Smith, tells me we are in exactly the right sector at the right time to both assist families and to provide a significant opportunity for those who invest."

"Stem cells are used today in the treatment of various blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, and myelomas such as Hodgkin's Disease and are used to treat benign blood diseases such as anemia and immune deficiency disorders," Mr. Schissler said. "Their potential use in fighting our most intractable diseases in the future, including diabetes and heart disease, is enormous. We can understand why Mr. Smith is so enthused over his gift of life."
