Cytomedix Announces Positive Results With Angel(R) cPRP in Veterinary Application

Data Provide Insight Into Anti-Inflammatory Mechanism of PRP

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- Cytomedix, Inc. (OTCQX: CMXI) (the "Company"), a regenerative therapies company commercializing and developing innovative platelet and adult stem cell technologies, announced today that positive data on the Angel® cPRP system in a veterinary application -- treatment of persistent mating induced endometritis (PMIE) in mares -- were recently presented at the 3rd annual conference of the North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association (NAVRMA) in Savannah, GA. Treatment with PRP was shown to be associated with a statistically significant reduction in certain endometrial pro-inflammatory cytokines and inducible nitric oxide synthetase (iNOS), both known to be involved in the pathology of PMIE.

Many mares fail to respond to conventional therapies and recent studies have shown a link between PMIE and the expression of certain cytokines. Nitric oxide is also believed to play a role in uterine clearance. The study investigated 9 barren mares with a history of PMIE. During the treatment cycle, whole blood was processed using the Angel cPRP system and the resultant PRP was brought to a final volume with platelet poor plasma and infused into the uterus. All mares were then inseminated with motile sperm. Evaluation of endometrial biopsies showed that in mares treated with PRP there was down-regulated expression of pro-inflammatory molecules, IL-1b, IL-6, IL-8 and iNOS, compared with untreated mares (p < 0.05).

Lisa Metcalf MS, DVM, Diplomate ACT, lead investigator on the study commented on the results, "Infertility in high value mares is a significant economic problem in the equestrian industry. Intra uterine treatment with PRP offers a new approach to treating this condition and, in this study we observed multiple pregnancies in the treated mares that were previously barren. Use of PRP in this setting warrants further investigation".

Martin Rosendale, Chief Executive Officer of Cytomedix added, "These results are very promising and give us further insight into the mechanism by which PRP inhibits inflammation by decreasing the presence of pro-inflammatory cytokines. These findings regarding the control of inflammation may be transferable to human inflammatory conditions. We will continue to explore disease areas where inflammation is known to play a role and where there is a need for a therapeutic alternative to corticosteroids."

For example, Guo Ping, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said in a recent report from the World Economic Forum, "The Industrial Internet will afford emerging markets a unique opportunity ...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
