Date:10/16/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BCLI), a leading developer of adult stem cell technologies and therapeutics, is excited and honored to state the appointment of Rasheda Ali, revered author and daughter of renowned boxer and long time Parkinson's sufferer Muhammad Ali, as a member of the company's Advisory Board. BrainStorm has announced results leading to a possible cure for Parkinson's, which drew the attention of philanthropist Ali, an advocate in finding a cure for her father's debilitating disease.

As the author of I'll Hold Your Hand So You Won't Fall - a Child's Guide to Parkinson's Disease her longtime goal has been to encourage a dialogue between parents and children. Continuing her efforts toward national and international awareness and pursuing medical breakthroughs for Parkinson's, she will now champion Brainstorm's research and advancements, in her new role.

"I am very excited to be part of the BrainStorm Advisory Board and focus more attention on spotlighting their groundbreaking research towards a cure for Parkinson's," says Ali. "This is obviously a very personal issue for me, as I continue to pray daily for a cure for my father, which it seems BrainStorm is determined to find. I cannot wait to lend a hand."

"As a role model and a living example of how to cope with her own father's struggle with Parkinson's, Rasheda is a natural fit for our cause. We are very excited to have her collaborate with BrainStorm as a pivotal member of our Advisory Board, joining the ranks of notable world class business leaders like Prof. Jacob Frenkel and Harvey Krueger," commented Chaim Lebovits, President. "We know through her passion to find a cure for her father, she will continue to do great things for those who suffer from Parkinson's -- both family and patient."

Leveraging her celebredom and humanitarian legacy, Rasheda wants to bring further awareness to the Parkinson's issue. Over 1 million Americans suffer from Parkinson's, with more victims, young and old, being diagnosed daily. 40% of victims are under the age of 60 and it is estimated that Parkinson's costs the U.S. over $26 billion annually in disability costs and lost productivity. Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson's though BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics is well on its way to conquering this horrible disease via adult stem cell research.
