Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Thursday, June 30, 2011 -- (Business Wire India) -- Asia Knowledge Associates is organizing the Second Annual two day conclave and exhibition on Stem cell research and therapy named "India Stem Cell Conclave & Exhibition 2011". The conclave & exhibition will be held on 2nd and 3rd of July 2011 at the Westin Hotel, Mumbai. Whilst the conclave aims to showcase the latest research conducted by scientists from across the world, who are researching on the potential of using stem cells in finding new cures, the exhibition which in its second year offers a comprehensive knowledge to the common man on the various benefits of stem cell therapy, its reach and utility.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Mayur Abhaya (President & Executive Director) - LifeCell International said "The global cellular therapies industry is poised to grow significantly with exciting new therapies gaining regulatory approval, and with several more reporting very strong lead clinical data. Recently the industry crossed the $1bn threshold in revenues, and could potentially bring in more than $5bn in annual revenues by 2016. We hope that the outcome of the Stem Cell Conclave will provide the industry an opportunity to showcase the significant programs being worked upon in India and also importantly setup the advocacy necessary to provide the necessary impetus from a regulatory and structural point for continued investments into this emerging field.

We are also very keen in sharing excerpts from our R&D programs and recent developments in stem cell industry for the benefit of the audience present at the conclave".

Speaking at the event Mr. David Oxley (Vice President Emerging Market Sales) - "Regenerative Medicine, as "an Industry," is at a dynamic an important crossroads. Ten years ago, we were a small, fledgling group of innovators with a common goal; unlock the natural healing mechanisms of the human body to treat critical unmet medical conditions. Today, we are improving patient care through personalized, point-of-care cell therapy. Our aspiration would be for this collective dialogue to help ensure India becomes a leading hub in regenerative medicine worldwide.

For Cytori, it's about a Platform rather than a single product; it's about Enabling Surgeons and Hospitals worldwide to treat Ischemia Disease. In the end, it's about using a patient's own Adipose-Derived Regenerative Cells (ADRC) at the point of care to improve the quality and length of life."
