Dr. Auayporn Nademanee of City of Hope leads study showing efficacy of

novel therapy

ARCADIA, Calif. and DUARTE, Calif., Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) has selected an abstract written by Dr. Auayporn Nademanee, physician and professor in the Division of Hematology & Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation at City of Hope, and Dr. Robert Chow, Founder and Global Medical Director for StemCyte, as one of four best abstracts at its annual Council Meeting in Minneapolis, MN. The abstract, "Adult Patients with Malignancies Transplanted with Plasma Depleted Cord Blood (PD CB) -- A Retrospective Audited Analysis of 107 Patients" was presented by Dr. Nademanee at the NMDP Council Meeting and has several other co-authors.

The abstract describes the safety and effectiveness of transplanting single or double plasma-depleted umbilical cord blood units into adult patients with cancers of the blood. All of the plasma-depleted cord blood was processed and shipped from the StemCyte International Cord Blood Center in Arcadia, CA. Dr. Nademanee says, "Patients treated with plasma-depleted cord blood demonstrated excellent outcomes in terms of overall survival, transplant-related mortality, and the absence of complications such as graft-versus-host disease. We believe that plasma-depleted cord blood will continue to be an effective treatment for patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and other malignant indications."

Dr. Chow says, "We thank NMDP for selecting ours as one of their Best Abstracts. We are heartened to see the outstanding patient outcomes using StemCyte's plasma-depleted cord blood products. However, none of these results would be possible without the tremendous care given to patients by physicians like Dr. Nademanee at City of Hope. We are gratified to have the support and confidence of physicians at City of Hope and other leading transplant centers around the world." StemCyte has shipped c
