NeoStem Vice President Will Speak on VSELs and Emerging Stem Cell Technologies at Age Management Medicine Conference

NEW YORK, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE Amex: NBS) which is pioneering the pre-disease collection, processing and long-term storage of adult stem cells for future medical need, announced today that Alan Harris, M.D., Ph.D., the Company's Vice President of Drug Development and Regulatory Affairs, will speak at a conference on Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine, taking place in Las Vegas, November 5-8, 2009.

Dr. Harris's presentation will take place during a special pre-conference session on November 5, 2009, focused on "Regenerative Medicine: From Autologous Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PRP) to Stem Cells." The subject of his talk is "The Apheresis Product: A Rich Source of Pluripotent VSELs, Stem Cells and Progenitor Cells for Autologous Banking and Cellular Therapies."

Apheresis utilizes a minimally invasive procedure that members of NeoStem's collection network employ to collect stem cells from peripheral blood to store, using NeoStem's proprietary cryogenic technology, for the donor's personal use in time of medical need. NeoStem also holds a worldwide exclusive license to VSEL (Very Small Embryonic-Like) Cell Technology, and is supporting research programs at the University of Louisville as well as engaging in its own research and development activities. As Vice President of Drug Development and Regulatory Affairs, Dr. Harris oversees the Company's progress in these cutting edge arenas.

The Las Vegas events are organized by the Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG), dedicated to educating physicians and healthcare professionals on this growing medical specialty, age management medicine, through evidence-based scientific medical education conferences, workshops, seminars, publications and Web media. The Group, now in its fifth year, consists of leading industry healthcare professionals, physicians, practitioners, researchers, medical associations and providers of products and services. Attending the conference will be physicians, researchers, and health professionals, including dentists, chiropractors, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, psychologists and medical students.

Age management medicine is a proactive, preventive approach focused on preservation of optimum human function and quality of life, making every effort to modulate the process of aging prior to the onset of degenerative aging. The basic tenets of age management medicine are patient evaluation through extensive medical history, lifestyle assessment, physical examination and laboratory evaluation to establish personalized proactive treatment plans consisting of proper diet, exercise, stress management and appropriate medical interventions.
