Stem Cell Researchers Poised for PayoffThe Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on Advanced Cell Technology & Neostem (October 18, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- Stem Cell stocks continue to be some of the most volatile in the market. While scientists firmly believe that stem cells are the future of medicine, and a highly lucrative sector, investors worry that budget cuts could slash funding for the controversial research. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Biotechnology Industry and provides equity research on Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: ACTC) and Neostem, Inc. (NYSE Amex: NBS).

Embryonic stems cell research suffers on-again, off-again bans on US federal funding. Since Obama took office, funding has been less sporadic. However last month two scientists appealed a ruling that permitted federal funding of human embryonic stem research to go forward. Dr. James Sherley, a biological engineer at Boston Biomedical Research Institute, and Theresa Deisher, of Washington-based AVM Biotechnology argued it diverted money away from their work with adult stem cells.
Embryonic stem cells come from days-old human embryos and can produce any type of cell in the body. Scientists hope to be able to use them to address spinal cord injuries, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and much more.

Adult stem cells, well significantly less controversial, may only develop into a limited number of cell types, so their potential applications are not as great as embryonic stem cells.
NeoStem holds the worldwide exclusive license to VSEL Technology, which uses very small embryonic-like stem cells, shown to have several physical characteristics that are generally found in embryonic stem cells, and is pursuing the licensing of other technologies for therapeutic use.
Advanced Cell Technology focuses on the development and commercialization of human embryonic and adult stem cell technology in the field of regenerative medicine. Last month the company announced that the independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) overseeing the Company's two ongoing stem cell clinical trials in the United States authorized ACT to move forward with enrolling and treating the next set of patients in each of the trials.
