Patent on Technology for the Delivery of Stem Cells to the Human Heart Issued to CellCyte Genetics Corp. of Washington

KIRKLAND, Wash., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CellCyte Genetics
 Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:   CCYG) announced today that is has received
 notice of the issuance of a U.S. patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,282,222) for its
 unique methods and compositions approach to deliver and direct stem cells
 to target organs in the body.
     Using this now-patented technology, exclusively licensed to CellCyte
 from the US Department of Veterans Affairs, the company is developing stem
 cell enabling therapeutic products designed to allow more efficient
 delivery and significantly increased retention of adult stem cells to
 diseased and other target organs, such as the heart.
     Dr. Ronald Berninger, Chief Scientific Officer of CellCyte Genetics
 explains, "The goal of CellCyte's stem cell targeting/retention therapies
 is to enhance the number of cells available for regeneration of damaged
 tissue, and thereby markedly increase opportunities for healing and
 restoring organ function. The company's first product in development,
 CCG-TH30, is designed to target autologous bone-marrow-derived (adult) stem
 cells to the heart of patients after a heart attack."
     "In preclinical models, CCG-TH30 has been shown to increase the
 retention of stem cells up to as much as 77% in pre-clinical models as
 compared to conventional methods, which achieve only up to about 6%,"
 Berninger states. "Importantly, CellCyte's product candidate, along with
 stem cells, can both be delivered intravenously through a patient's
 circulatory system without an invasive procedure."
     Company CEO, President and Chairman, Gary A. Reys emphasizes the
 importance of the patent's issuance to the company's position. Reys states,
 "This patented technology is significant, as it has the potential to fill
 an important missing piece in the field of regenerative medicine, namely,
 the ability to target and then keep cells in an organ of interest, in this
 case, the heart. The issuance of a patent for this platform assures
 CellCyte Genetics that it will remain a leader in this field as it
 continues to pursue development of the technology to deliver stem cells to
 other areas throughout the body."
     CellCyte Genetics Corp. is completing preclinical studies and in 2008
 will then move to a Phase I human clinical trial using the compound for the
 heart.
     In addition to this indication, the patenting of the technology opens
 up the possibility for gene therapy and the delivery of a variety of other
 payloads to the heart via the stem cell vehicle.
