StemCyte will announce this major milestone at the 7th Annual International Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation Symposium in Los Angeles June 5-6, 2009.

"When StemCyte was founded in 1997, there were not even 1,000 cumulative cord blood transplants worldwide. I am especially proud of the progress we have made during this time," says Dr. Robert Chow, StemCyte Founder.

StemCyte has now provided prescription cord blood product to over 180 transplant centers worldwide in five continents and is a trusted name among transplant physicians. With both public and private banks in the U.S., India and Taiwan, StemCyte has emerged as a global leader in cord blood banking.

Cord blood stem cells have become a viable option to treat a variety of illnesses including leukemia, lymphomas, Autoimmune diseases and Genetic Blood disorders such as Thalassemia sickle-cell disease.

"With over 20 years of human safety and efficacy data, umbilical cord blood stem cells are emerging as a prime source of stem cells for the field of regenerative medicine, which is the repair of injured tissues, nerves and organs. Research and clinical studies are increasing at an incredible pace and this will result in the treatment of some of the most devastating diseases. StemCyte's large library of HLA typed product as well as our experience and expertise in this field will position us very well to take advantage of these emerging therapies," explains StemCyte's CEO Ken Giacin.

In 2008, StemCyte, Inc. signed two research and licensing agreements for human umbilical cord blood stem cell treatment for spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS, and other problems of the central nervous system. The initiatives are being developed by Professor Wise Young M.D., Ph.D. at Rutgers the State University, New Jersey and Professor John Lin M.D., Ph.D. at China Medical University Hospital, Taiwan.
