In August, we engaged the services of three experts at the forefront of asthma research, William Busse, M.D., of the University of Wisconsin; Mario Castro, M.D., M.P.H, of the Washington University in St Louis; and Prescott Woodruff, M.D., M.P.H., of the University of California, San Francisco. Each of the consultants brings a breadth of experience in research to assist the Company in determining the appropriate clinical endpoints for a clinical trial in steroid resistant asthma.In September, the Company announced the licensing of three families of patents from UCSF. NeoStem's worldwide exclusive license to these patents provides incremental protection for the Company's Treg platform. The three patent families cover methods to isolate, expand and use Tregs with therapeutic potential for autoimmune disorders, including U.S. patent 7,722,862, which claims a cellular immunotherapy for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. NeoStem's patent estate for its Treg program now includes exclusive rights to 22 issued patents in U.S. and major international commercial geographies and covers isolation, activation, expansion and methods of treating or preventing certain conditions and/or diseases using Tregs.
