    will be keynote speakers at the 3rd Annual Stem Cell Summit on Feb. 26 at

    largest gathering of stem cell experts where there will be more than 40
    company presentations from leading executives in the area of stem cells.
    Industry analyst Robin Young will also provide a 10-year market forecast
    for the stem cell industry.

    Dr. Caplan and Robin Young, president of RRY Publications and the
    organizer of the annual Stem Cell Summit, will provide welcoming remarks.
    Dr. Caplan has studied tissue engineering of mesenchymal tissue, skeletal
    tissue biology, extracellular matrix and the aging of the skin. Young's
    update on the 10-year market forecast for the industry will include his
    estimate for 2008 that sales of stem cell products are expected to reach
    $87 million.

    Drs. Young and Lyon will be luncheon keynote speakers. Dr. Young will
    discuss how stem cells are helping patients with life-threatening diseases
    today through the use of cord blood. Young is one of the world's
    outstanding neuroscientists and a leader in spinal cord injury research who
    has received various awards and acknowledgments, including being the first
    researcher elected to the Spinal Cord Injury Hall of Fame. He is also the
    doctor who first treated Christopher Reeve following a 1995
    horseback-riding accident. Dr. Lyon trained at the prestigious Shock Trauma
    Center in Baltimore and has since developed a research center focusing on
    the fields of osteobiologics and orthopedic trauma.

    New York Lt. Gov. David Paterson has been a stem cell proponent and
    will provide closing remarks with Mr. Young. Paterson led the charge for
    several crucial issues for New York's future, proposing legislation for a
    $1 billion voter-approved stem cell research initiative.

    The 3rd Annual Stem Cell Summit will provide institutional investors,
    industry participants and researchers with a complete update on the stem
    cell industry. Attendees will learn about the investment opportunities in
    the stem cell marketplace, the groundbreaking stem cell products physicians
