Second Annual International Congress on Regenerative and Cell Based Medicine to Examine the Latest Developments in Adult Stem Cells

Growth in techniques, research, and technology bringing cell based medicine closer to important practical applications

PORTLAND, OREGON, SEPTEMBER 30, 2010 – The International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS), a nonprofit organization committed to patient safety, peer oversight, and physician education in the medical use of adult stem cells, announces the 2nd Annual International Congress on Regenerative and Cell Based Medicine on November 11-12, 2010 at the M Resort in Las Vegas, NV. This professional medical conference brings together experts who are driving the field of adult stem cell technologies as part of their everyday practice of medicine. The ICMS will host lectures from physicians from around the world on how adult stem cells are being used in the clinical setting to treat patients.

“This conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for physicians, researchers, and clinicians from a variety of countries who are providing stem cell procedures, or evaluating them as potential options, to discuss the clinical state of the art for these promising therapies.” said David Bonner, PhD, Chairman & CEO of Stematix, Inc. “This conference promises great value to the participants in that it focuses entirely on how adult stem cells are being used in the clinic.”

The event will showcase presentations made by internationally acclaimed physicians on the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirant concentrate (BMAC), and adult stem cells derived from adipose tissue, bone marrow, and peripheral blood. Speakers will attend from nearly a dozen countries to present clinical experience and patient outcome data on indications such as Parkinson’s Disease, Critical Limb Ischemia, Angina, Diabetes, COPD, and Degenerative Disc/Joint Disease.

As a new feature to this year’s conference agenda, the ICMS will be providing a one-day hands-on workshop on Essential Knowledge in Stem Cell Collection Techniques.  This exciting workshop will provide physicians with a unique opportunity to learn the basics of the safe and effective collection of cells from seasoned specialists that are pioneering this field. The course will provide professional training in the collection of PRP and mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow, adipose and peripheral blood.

“As cell based medical techniques gain traction in the clinic,” said Dr. Vasilis Paspaliaris, founder of AdiStem, “providing independent education, by an international physician-driven nonprofit medical organization, like the ICMS, is critical.”


The 2nd Annual International Congress on Regenerative and Cell Based Medicine and the Essential Training in Stem Cell Collection Techniques is being held in Las Vegas on November 11 and 12th in conjunction with the Clinical Applications for Age Management Medicine hosted by the Age Management Medicine Group.
