PALO ALTO, Calif., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular Biomedicine Group (OTCQB: CBMG) today announced that it has achieved 50% enrollment of the total projected enrollment required for its Phase I trial to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of the medical technology haMPC (Human Adipose-derived Mesenchymal Progenitor Cells) therapy for Knee Osteoarthritis (KOA). To date the trial has had no Severe Adverse Effect (SAE) reported.

The Phase I open label clinical research trial for KOA, registered with the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) under number NCT01809769 (click here to view), tests the safety and efficacy of intra-articular injections of autologous (patient's own) haMPC in order to reduce inflammation and regenerate damaged joint tissues. This trial is conducted at Shanghai Renji Hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in China.

"This patient enrollment achievement in our clinical trial is an exciting milestone for CBMG. We anticipate that enrollment will continue to move quickly and the study is on schedule to complete its Phase I clinical trial," said Dr. William Cao, President of Cellular Biomedicine Group.
