LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 05, 2009) - In May of 2009, StemCell Pharma, Inc. (SCPI)
will organize an international commission for the examination of Edi
Leanca, a Romanian boy born blind and diagnosed with Leber's Congenital
Amaurosis (LCA), the most severe form of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), who
regained his sight after receiving stem cell implants. The technique used
on Edi Leanca is a proprietary technique owned by SCPI. The examination
will take place in Bucharest, Romania by a commission made up of retinal
experts with representatives from Romania, the European community, Russia
and the USA. A report will be issued regarding their examination.

SCPI is a privately held Nevada corporation formed in May of 2005. It owns
the worldwide rights to two inventions (patents pending) namely:
1. An Amniotic Membrane Stem Cell Telomerase Enhanced Implant and...
2. "The Transsclera Technology for Delivery of Stem Cells plus
The first invention deals with a proprietary technique, whereby using
telomerase modulators, the number of multiplications of the stem cells can
be manipulated either by keeping them at normal rate or if needed to
increase their multiplication by extending the telomerase lengths.
The second invention "The Transsclera Technology," uses the SCPI
formulations (stem cells plus enhancing factors) applied on the sclera (the
white of the eye) where through a proprietary technique, the formulations
cross rapidly the retina layers, landing on the retinal pigment epithelium
(RPE) and the photoreceptors layers. It is postulated that the stem cells
would next, through a process of differentiation become cones and rods,
eventually clean the area of damaged or dead photoreceptors, construct a
new photoreceptor layer and restore a certain degree of vision.
Based upon this technology, SCPI had developed blue prints that would allow
through setting up, licensing or joint venture (JV) agreements to set up
new stem cell clinics or with existing stem cell clinics abroad.
Another project this time in the US would involve setting up an
experimental stem cell clinic authorized in Nevada. This project if and
when approved won't be the first one successfully concluded. In July of
1977, the Governor of Nevada Mike O'Callaghan signed the bill H.R. 54
authorizing the manufacturing and marketing in Nevada of Gerovital H3, GH3,
the Romanian anti-aging drug brought to the US by Dr. Sapse. Gerovital H3
is now used all over the US.
SCPI has also available two stem cell treatments in injectable form
containing formulations intended for retinal diseases and for the treatment
of aging and diseases associated with aging.
These products are intended for clinical trials FDA type, in the US or
abroad, and when or if approved for marketing, they would become available
to patients via medical prescriptions issued by treating physicians. (Dr.
Sapse President of StemCell Pharma, Inc. had received US patents for the
treatment of Alzheimer's and depression in an aging population.)
