Medical Technology Research Alert: Zacks Small Cap Research Update for Aethlon Medical (OTCQB:AEMD); "Remain Encouraged By Ongoing Progress"

Point Roberts, WA, New York, NY - August 20, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including biotech and medical technology stocks, issues a research alert for Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: AEMD). Yesterday Brian Marckx, CFA from Zacks Small Cap Research issued an update on the company entitled, “Remain Encouraged By Ongoing Progress”.

Excerpt from Zacks Small Cap Research, Brian Marckx, CFA:
Aethlon Medical (OTC BB:AEMD) filed their 10-Q for the fiscal first quarter ending 6/30/2013 on August 13th. Revenue came in in-line with our number with operating income coming in much better than our estimate as a result of AEMD doing a nice job of cutting operating expenses and conserving resources. AEMD booked $196k in DARPA contract revenue in Q1 which was in-line with our number. Revenue relates to the twelfth milestone under the DARPA contract (the fourth milestone under the year-2 contract). Subsequent to the end of fiscal Q1 AEMD invoiced for and was paid another $404k which relates to the thirteenth and fourteenth milestones.
AEMD also disclosed in the 10-Q that they have submitted to Battelle their first invoice for work the company is doing under the previously announced subcontract agreement that the company has with Battelle related to the $22.8 million systems integrator contract with DARPA. AEMD's initial invoice is for just over $20k which we assume will be recorded and collected in fiscal Q2. As a reminder, AEMD's subcontract is a time and materials contract so the total that AEMD will eventually bill will not be known until their work is completed. We do, however, think it's likely that there will be additional revenue contribution from this contract throughout the year.

Stem Cell Stock Alert: BioRestorative Therapies (OTCBB: BRTX) Receives Approval to Conduct Retrospective Safety Study on its Bulging/ Herniated Disc Procedure

JUPITER, Fla. - August 6, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) BioRestorative Therapies Inc. ("BRT" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BRTX), a life sciences company focused on developing stem cell based cellular therapies for various personal medical applications, today announced that it has received approval from the Western Institutional Review Board ("the Board") to complete a retrospective safety study on selected subjects previously treated by the Company's brtxDISC™ bulging and herniated disc procedure. The study is titled "Re-consenting and Follow-Up of Adults from a Retrospective Study Using Autologous Transplantation of Marrow Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Degenerated Intervertebral Disc."

Study objectives are to determine the safety of subjects who received transplants of their own stem cells into their disc, using MRI and Quality of Life Questionnaires. The Board requires that all subjects must be able to consent for themselves to be enrolled in the study, which has been approved to take place at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Broomfield, Colorado.
The approval allows BRT to retrospectively collect and analyze clinical data on selected subjects who previously have been treated for bulging or herniated disc disease with the Company's novel brtxDISC™ procedure. These procedures were performed using BRT's proprietary therapeutic delivery device cannula system and its proprietary culture method isolating a selective population of mesenchymal stem cells. BRT expects to complete the study within a six-month period.
"This is a significant milestone in taking our brtxDISC™ procedure closer towards an FDA meeting to seek approval for the commencement of our clinical trial. We look forward to collecting this data with the ambition of meeting the safety requirements necessary for us to receive approval and start our trial," commented Mark Weinreb, Chief Executive Officer of BioRestorative Therapies. "Our goal is to compile and present the necessary data to the FDA with the goal of initiating a Phase I or Phase II clinical trial in the early part of next year."
About BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. ("BRT"), www.biorestorative.com, develops medical procedures using cell and tissue protocols, primarily involving adult stem cells, designed for patients to undergo minimally invasive cellular-based treatments. BRT is developing the following scientific initiatives:
  • brtxDISC™ Program (Disc Implanted Stem Cells), a non-surgical treatment for bulging and herniated discs that addresses the gap between non-invasive and invasive back procedures. This research is still in the non-clinical, investigational stage.
  • ThermoStem® Program, a treatment for metabolic disorders (diabetes, heart disease, etc.) and obesity using brown fat stem cells. Initial non-clinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels in the body.
  • brtx-C Cosmetic Program, based on the development of a human cellular extract that, per initial in vitro studies, when applied to human skin cells, appears to cause an increase in the production of collagen and fibronectin, which are proteins that are essential to combating the aging of skin. Potential cosmetic uses are being explored with third parties.
The Company also offers plant stem cell-based facial creams and beauty products under the Stem Pearls® brand at www.stempearls.com.

Stem Cell Stock Alert: BioRestorative Therapies (OTCBB: BRTX) Provides Company Updates with Shareholder Letter

JUPITER, Fla. - August 1, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) BioRestorative Therapies Inc. ("BRT" or the "Company") (OTCQB: BRTX), a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapeutics, today announced the issuance of a shareholder letter by Chief Executive Officer, Mark Weinreb, providing an update to shareholders on the Company's progress.

The shareholders were advised as follows:
Over the past 12 months, BRT's substantial investment in research and development has allowed the Company to continue executing on its growth strategy. There have been many developments, both operationally and scientifically, that have positioned the Company well as a growing stem cell biotechnology company with a specific focus on cellular treatments and therapies for certain medical applications.
Below are some of the Company's accomplishments and activities over the past 12 months:
  • In the latter part of 2012, BRT appointed Wayne A. Marasco, M.D., Ph.D. as Chairman of its Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Marasco currently serves as an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He is head of Marasco Labs, an accomplished research laboratory at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute known for discovery and therapeutic human monoclonal antibody development and for constructing and validating various human-mouse chimeric models in the area of cancer, infectious disease immunotherapy, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Dr. Marasco is a Principal Faculty Member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and has extensive experience in the field of stem cells.
  • Late last year, the Company announced that its common stock had begun trading on the OTC Bulletin Board. The company went through a very thorough and diligent review process by FINRA to attain the Bulletin Board listing. The Bulletin Board trading platform allows for more potential investors interested in purchasing the Company's stock. The Company is extremely pleased to provide investors increased visibility and transparency that this regulated quotation service provides.
  • In late November, BRT launched its new website available at www.biorestorative.com. The new site highlights the Company as an innovator and pioneer in the adult stem cell industry. The Company's primary programs are highlighted in more detail on the website, along with rich imagery and information about therapies being developed.
  • At the start of 2013, the Company was invited to present at the Adipose Tissue Biology conference of the Keystone Symposia conference series. Chief Scientist and Vice President of Research and Development, Francisco Silva, presented the Company's research on "Human Metabolically Active Brown Adipose Tissue Derived Stem Cells." This research is a result of the scientific work the Company has been performing pursuant to its ThermoStem® Program, which is in the pre-clinical stage and which focuses on treatments for metabolic disorders (particularly focusing on Type 2 diabetes) and obesity and uses adult derived stem cells from brown adipose (fat) tissue stem cells.
  • On April 13th, Dr. Marasco spoke at the Second International Vatican Adult Stem Cell Conference: Regenerative Medicine -- A Fundamental Shift in Science and Culture. The event was held in Vatican City from April 11th to April 13th. Dr. Marasco spoke during the session entitled "Stem Cells, Cancer and Aging — A Search for Solutions." His talk was titled "What Questions Haven't Been Addressed with Respect to Stem Cells, Cancer and Aging?"
  • In April, the Company was invited to present at the 5th International Congress on Prediabetes and the Metabolic Syndrome in Vienna, Austria. Mr. Silva presented the Company's research on Human Metabolically Active Brown Adipose Tissue Derived Stem Cells. This research is a result of the scientific work the Company has been performing pursuant to its ThermoStem® Program.
  • The Company hired ProActive Capital in mid-April to help increase awareness of the Company among the investment community. ProActive Capital is also helping to increase exposure through the use of social and digital media.
  • In mid April, the Company implemented a 1-for-50 reverse stock split which reduced its outstanding shares from 820,641,011 to 16,412,820. 94% of the shares voted were in favor of the proposal. The Company believes the reverse split will help attract a new base of shareholders as well as new institutional and retail support in the market.
  • In mid May, the Company signed an agreement with Dexterity, Inc., a product design and bioengineering firm, to further the development and production of its brtxDISC™ (Disc Implanted Stem Cells) stem cell therapy device. This device plays an integral role in delivering stem cells for its proprietary bulging/herniated disc therapy.
  • In May, the Company once again presented its investment thesis at the Marcum MicroCap Conference. To listen to the webcast, please visit http://wsw.com/webcast/marcum/brtx. The event hosted nearly 100 publicly traded companies with capitalizations under $500 million and attracted more than 1,000 people, including senior personnel from the presenting public companies, leading institutional investors, directors, bankers and service providers to the microcap marketplace.
  • At the end of May, the Company formally launched its "brtx-C Cosmetic" Program. The Company announced that it has developed a human cellular-derived extract that, per initial in vitro studies, when applied to skin cells, appears to cause a significant increase in collagen and fibronectin production (proteins that are essential for combating the aging of skin). The Company plans to conduct additional in vitro studies to better understand the extract's mechanism of action and human cellular activity and is actively seeking collaborations with other parties to commercialize the product.
  • In mid June, financial personality and founder of NBT Equities Research, Tobin Smith, interviewed CEO Mark Weinreb with regard to the Company's hybrid business model and what it is currently doing that will help change the biotechnology landscape. Click here for the full interview: http://direct.nbtequitiesresearch.com/video/nbt-biorestorative-1
  • In late June, the Company expanded its ThermoStem® Program by collecting 150 samples of human brown adipose tissue. This strengthens its R & D platform for the development of treatments for metabolic disorders and obesity. For the past year, through strategic collaboration and internal efforts, the Company has grown a large library of human brown fat stem cells. The compilation of a large number and variety of brown fat derived stem cells allows it to study and identify potential cell lines to be used in developing therapies.
  • In mid July, the Company was featured in the industry publication, "The Life Sciences Report." In the interview included in the report, CEO Mark Weinreb described how the Company's cell therapy process could possibly keep disc disease treatment out of the operating theater. Link to full interview: http://www.thelifesciencesreport.com/pub/na/15470
  • Since 2011, the Company has raised approximately $9 million, which has enabled it to achieve clear milestones as it continues to build momentum on its growth strategy.
"Based on these accomplishments, we are excited for what lies ahead in the near and long term," states CEO Mark Weinreb. "We continue to make speedy and efficient progress with our programs and look forward to further advancements regarding each of our exciting initiatives. I would like to thank all of our shareholders for their continued support. We will continue to work diligently to further execute our growth plan so that BioRestorative Therapies will be able to mature into a prominent life sciences company."
