Bothell (euro adhoc) - May 28 -- CellCyte Genetics Corporation (CellCyte) (OTC Bulletin Board: CCYG) has entered into a collaborative research agreement with Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine to perform an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) disease model study in mice using CellCyte's CCG-TH30 product candidate. The goal of the study is to evaluate the functional benefit of the CCG-TH30 therapy in a disease model outcome study representative of the AMI (heart attack) indication. Douglas W. Losordo, M.D., a leader in cardiovascular cell therapy research and Director of Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute, will serve as the principal investigator on the study.

@@start.t2@@"We are extremely pleased to collaborate with Dr. Losordo, as he is one of the preeminent leaders in cardiovascular regenerative medicine," said Ronald W. Berninger, Ph.D., CellCyte's Chief Scientific Officer. "This is another important collaboration for our program, as it allows us to evaluate the functional outcome benefit of the CCG-TH30 therapy as compared to standard cell therapies where delivery agents aren't used."

      About Douglas W. Losordo, M.D.
      Dr. Losordo is a cardiologist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and is the
Director of Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine and the Feinberg Cardiovascular
Research Institute, both at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He is board
certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Internal Medicine, and Interventional
Cardiology. Dr. Losordo is a member of the Northwestern Memorial Faculty
Foundation, and his clinical interests include gene therapy, stem cell
transplant, regenerative medicine and angiogenesis. He has preclinical expertise
in animal models of cardiac disease, as well as preclinical and clinical
expertise in stem cell therapy for cardiac regeneration. In recognition of his
continued and outstanding achievements, Northwestern University's Feinberg
School of Medicine named Dr. Losordo the Eileen M. Foell Professor of Heart
Research in May 2007. He is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the
American Heart Association, the American Association for the Advancement of
Science, the American College of Physicians, the American College of Chest
Physicians, and the Society for Cardiac Interventions and Angiography.

Institute is dedicated to pursuing an understanding of the fundamental molecular
and cellular processes underlying cardiovascular disease, the largest
contributor to morbidity and mortality in the United States. The mission of
Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute is to improve the quality of human
life through creative basic and translational research in cardiovascular
disease, and to build a legacy of outstanding scholarship, scientific
achievement, and therapeutic discovery. Investigators at Feinberg Cardiovascular
Research Institute are exploring complex problems in modern cardiovascular
research, including basic cellular signaling pathways and their contributions to
disease, the use of stem cells in regenerative medicine, and diagnostic and
imaging technologies critical to patient care.

      About CellCyte Genetics
      CellCyte Genetics Corporation is a biotechnology company engaged in the
discovery, development and commercialization of stem cell enabling therapeutic
products. CellCyte is developing products designed to allow more efficient
delivery and increased retention of adult stem cells to diseased organs, such as
the heart. The goal of these therapies is to increase the number of stem cells
delivered to a damaged organ, thereby markedly increasing organ healing and
functional restoration. The Company's lead product in development,
CCG-TH30, is designed to send autologous bone marrow-derived (adult) stem cells
to the heart of patients after a heart attack.
