PITTSTON, ME--(Marketwire - March 06, 2013) - YaFarm Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: YFRM) (YaFarm, or the Company) announced today that the Integrative Stem Cell Institute (ISCI) has received significant funding for its venture in Cancun, Mexico.
The ISCI is a premier provider of cell-based, regenerative medical therapies that utilize a patient's own stem cells for the treatment of neuro-degenerative diseases. Combining a state-of-the-art laboratory and clean room facility with an integrative medical approach to treatment, the ISCI provides therapies as part of controlled clinical studies. The ISCI has partnered with the International Stem Cell Practice (ISCP) to provide patients with access to a global network of physicians to provide pre-treatment evaluation and post-therapy follow up for the independent collection and evaluation of patient outcomes.
The investment will be used to complete the construction of the new medical facility housed within Hospital Galenia in Cancun, Mexico. The hospital is accredited by both the Joint Commission (JCI) and the Accreditation Canada (ACI), and is the only hospital in Mexico to have been awarded certification from both of these organizations.
"The funding is important," says David Audley, CEO of the ISCI. "The pace of work for both the laboratory facility and the clean room space is moving fast, and this final infusion of capital will allow us to complete the project earlier than scheduled." Once finished, the ISCI will be able to initiate the clinical studies for diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Multiple Sclerosis.
"This last stage financing allows us to deliver these therapies to patients sooner than we expected," continues Mr Audley. "With a state-of-the-art lab, a world-class medical facility and a truly integrative treatment approach represent the next great stage of cell-based medicine, and patient care."
