Stem Cell Market Update to Be Presented at the 9th Annual New York Stem Cell Summit

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RRY Publications LLC today announced that the use of stem cell therapies in 2013 cleared $250 million representing a 30% increase over 2012 shipments and a new record. Said Robin Young, stem cell industry analyst and host of the New York meeting: "The range and scope of stem cell therapeutic use in the United States continues to grow and evolve and now encompasses a number of new indications. Virtually all of the increases we're seeing are for adult stem cell therapies and, in particular, the use by physicians of both allograft and autologous stem cell products."

Mr. Young's revised forecast of stem cell commercialization revenues for 2014-2024 will be presented at the February meeting in New York.

The companies, scientists and physicians that are at the forefront of this remarkable increase in stem cell therapeutic use will be presenting at the 9th Annual New York Stem Cell Summit. Listed below is the preliminary lineup of presenters for the 9th Annual Stem Cell Summit.
