Date:9/19/2011

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. ("ACT"; OTCBB: ACTC), a leader in the field of regenerative medicine, announced today that it has been issued a patent (patent number 8,017,393) for the Company's proprietary method for generating and expanding hemangioblast cells from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).  ACT holds an exclusive license to commercialize the patented technology in North America through an agreement with Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine International (SCRMI), a joint venture between ACT and CHA Bio & Diostech Co, Ltd (CHA Biotech), a leading South Korean biotechnology company.  Hemangioblasts are precursor cells that can generate a broad spectrum of important blood, immune, and vascular cell types, including red blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, and mesenchymal stem cells, which have powerful immune-modulatory effects and can make bone and cartilage among other replacement tissues.
