NeoStem Comments on Recent Court Ruling Blocking the Federal Government's Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research
Date:8/25/2010

NEW YORK, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE Amex: NBS) ("NeoStem" or the "Company"), an international biopharmaceutical company with operations in the U.S. and China, commented today on the ruling this week of a U.S. District Court blocking the federal government from funding research involving human embryonic stem cells.  In issuing a preliminary injunction, the judge said it violated a law first passed in 1996 prohibiting federal money for research where a human embryo is destroyed.
