CellCyte Genetics Corp. Enters Collaborative Research Agreement With Cleveland Clinic Foundation to Qualify Stem Cell Delivery in Damaged Heart Tissue
Date:9/11/2007

KIRKLAND, Wash., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CellCyte Genetics Corporation (the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: CCYG) has entered into a collaborative research agreement with physician scientists at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation of Cleveland, Ohio. The goal of the collaboration is to investigate the presence and regulation of heart receptors involved in stem cell trafficking in normal and diseased human hearts, using CellCyte's proprietary compounds.

CellCyte Genetics is developing stem cell enabling therapeutic products designed to allow more efficient delivery and significantly increased retention of adult stem cells to diseased organs, such as the heart. The goal of this therapy is to increase the number of stem cells delivered to a damaged organ, thereby increasing organ healing and functional restoration. The Company's first product in development, CCG-TH30, is designed to send autologous bone-marrow-derived (adult) stem cells to the heart of patients after a heart attack. In preclinical models, CCG-TH30 has been shown to increase the retention of stem cells up to as much as 80% compared to conventional methods, which achieve only up to about 7%. Importantly, CellCyte's product can be delivered intravenously through the patients' circulatory system without an invasive procedure.

The lead investigators of the project at Cleveland Clinic Foundation are Dr. Wilson Tang M.D. and Dr. Sathyamangla Prasad Ph.D., both accomplished and renowned scientists in the field of cardiac biology. Dr. Tang is also a physician and key opinion leader in cardiac medicine.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation scientists will analyze heart tissue samples of heart failure patients for the presence of surface receptors that are hypothesized to play an important role in the interaction of stem cells with the heart. These studies are expected to provide valuable novel information that will increase the understanding of cardiac regeneration and will thereby support the discovery and development of novel stem cell therapeutics for the heart. Work on the project is expected to start in October 2007.

Cleveland Clinic, located in Cleveland, Ohio, is a not-for-profit multispecialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. Cleveland Clinic was founded in 1921 by four renowned physicians with a vision of providing outstanding patient care based upon the principles of cooperation, compassion and innovation. U.S. News & World Report consistently names Cleveland Clinic as one of the nation's best hospitals in its annual "America's Best Hospitals" survey. Approximately 1,800 full-time salaried physicians and researchers at Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Florida represent more than 100 medical specialties and subspecialties. In 2006, there were 3.1 million outpatient visits to Cleveland Clinic, from every state and from more than 80 countries. There were more than 53,000 hospital admissions to Cleveland Clinic. Cleveland Clinic's Web site address is http://www.clevelandclinic.org.
