NeoStem's Subsidiary, Progenitor Cell Therapy (PCT), To Provide Process Development And Manufacturing Services To Kite Pharma

Kite will be accessing capacity in PCT's California facility, which recently brought online one additional, fully-outfitted Class 10,000 clean environment room ("CER") bringing the total of active CERs at the California facility to seven. Additionally, PCT's New Jersey facility recently completed an extensive renovation that added two additional CERs (one of which is rated Class 1,000 to meet European Union manufacturing requirements) bringing the total number of CERs in the New Jersey facility to five, in addition to almost doubling useable office space.

"The expanded space at PCT's California and New Jersey facilities reflects our belief that the regenerative medicine industry is continuing to grow and our desire to be prepared to serve the needs of clients such as Kite," said Robin L. Smith, MD, MBA, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem, Inc.
