Company’s Newly Discovered Stem Cell Shows Promising Potential in Regenerative Medicine

November 1, 2007 Cryo-Cell International Inc., one of the largest and most established family cord blood banks, today announced its discovery of breakthrough stem cell technology and its launch of the world’s first-ever service provided for women to store their own menstrual stem cells. The new service, called C’elleSM (pronounced “C-L”), enables women to collect menstrual flow containing stem cells, which can be cryogenically preserved in a manner similar to stem cells from umbilical cord blood and may one day serve as a potential source for promising regenerative therapies to treat heart disease, diabetes, neurological disorders like spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, in addition to cosmeceutical applications such as anti-aging therapies, to name a few. However, realistically, it may take several years for these menstrual stem cells to be developed into potential widely-available commercial therapies. The C’elle service is based on Cryo-Cell’s intellectual property, for which patent applications are pending, related to the procurement, processing, isolation and cryo-preservation of these unique menstrual stem cells.
