Cytori To Present Data In Two Distinct Models Of Impaired Wound Healing

Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYTX) will present new preclinical data describing positive effects of Cytori Cell Therapy™ on a corneal wound healing model and in cutaneous scarring following burn injury. The data will be presented at the International Federation for Adipose Therapeutics (IFATS) in San Diego on November 17-20, 2016.

One presentation is titled "Adipose-Derived Regenerative Cells Promote Proliferation of Corneal Epithelial Cell And Corneal Wound Healing." This presentation will focus on the effects of Cytori Cell Therapy on corneal wound healing using cell culture and corneal explant culture models. The cornea is particularly sensitive to injury following exposure to chemical agents and there is an unmet need for therapies capable of promoting corneal healing following accidental or terrorist-initiated exposure to chemical agents.

Another presentation is titled "Autologous Adipose Derived Regenerative Cell (ADRCs) Therapy For The Prevention And Treatment Of Hypertrophic Scars Using A Red Duroc Porcine Model," which suggests the ability of Cytori's DCCT-10 cell therapy to mitigate the development of hypertrophic scarring in a porcine model.

This research was funded by Cytori's contract with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHSO100201200008C).
