Progenitor Cell Therapy, A NeoStem Company, Invited To Present At Two Conferences In September

NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeoStem, Inc. (NYSE:NBS) ("NeoStem" or the "Company"), a cell therapy company, today announced that Company management of a NeoStem company, Progenitor Cell Therapy ("PCT"), an internationally recognized contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO), has been invited to present on its core expertise in development of commercial manufacturing processes for cell therapy at two cell therapy conferences in September. At each, PCT will offer its unique perspective as an industry leader in contract development and manufacturing of cell therapy products, with over 12 years of exclusive cell-therapy focused experience.

Timothy Fong, Ph.D, M.B.A, PCT's Vice President, Technology and Product Development, will be sharing PCT's expertise in cell therapy manufacturing with a focus on commercialization. At IBC Life Sciences' Cell Therapy Bioprocessing Conference, he will chair a panel on quality assurance and controls and will give a presentation entitled "From Concept to Product: Considerations for Developing a Robust Commercial Manufacturing Process", which will include considerations for developing a robust commercial manufacturing process. He will also speak at the Stem Cells USA and Regenerative Medicine Congress on "Cell manufacturing considerations for first-in-world stem cell therapeutics".

Dr. Fong stated, "As a cell therapeutic progresses from concept to product, the development of a commercial manufacturing process may contain unexpected technical and quality issues. The development path should follow several defined steps. My presentations will discuss the key steps in the process and highlight critical areas that need to be addressed to develop a successful commercial manufacturing process. PCT helps clients bridge the gap between discovery and patient care through efficient transfer of cell-based therapies from laboratory into clinical practice."

NeoStem and PCT invite you to attend the conference(s), see Dr. Fong's talks, and connect with the PCT team at PCT's booths. If you are a colleague of PCT or NeoStem, PCT can offer you a registration discount. Please contact PCT at for more details.
