The clinical trial will be conducted at the Pensacola Center of the Andrews' Research and Educational Institute in conjunction with Dr. Adam Anz and Dr. Josh Hackel, prominent physicians at the Institute. To date, IntelliCell's technology for isolating stromal vascular fraction cells from the vasculature of adipose tissue has been used to successfully treat over 60 knees with results lasting as long as 5 years.

IntelliCell's Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Steven Victor, remarked, "This is a pivotal point for IntelliCell BioSciences as it will be what we believe to represent the first of many clinical trials that the company will undertake and establish the company as a leader in the cellular therapy segment of the biotech industry. This IND study is important for verifying the company's patented technology of utilizing Ultrasonic Cavitation as a method of separating stromal vascular fraction cells from lipoaspirate. We believe that IntelliCell's Stromal Vascular Fraction Cells will offer people with OA a new and improved approach to gaining significant improvements in their qualities of life. We at IntelliCell are excited to have this opportunity to work with the distinguished Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, who will be the principal investigator of this clinical trial."

It will be research like this at the Andrews' Research and Educational Institute in collaboration with IntelliCell BioSciences and inVentiv that will further our research in the use of the biologics for the treatment of the osteoarthritic knee. We believe, based on antidotal evidence of others, that this cellular therapy has the potential to be a game changer."

About Osteoarthritis Arthritis of the Knee

Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease or osteoarthrosis, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. As a result of decreased movement secondary to pain, regional muscles may atrophy, and ligaments may become more lax.

Treatment generally involves a combination of exercise, lifestyle modification, and analgesics. If pain becomes debilitating, joint replacement surgery may be used to improve the quality of life. OA is the most common form of arthritis, and the leading cause of chronic disability in the United States. It affects about 1.9 million people in Australia, 8 million people in the United Kingdom and nearly 27 million people in the United States.
