IntelliCell BioSciences, Inc. to Address FDA Warning Letter
NEW YORK, March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IntelliCell BioSciences, Inc. ("Company") (OTCQB: SVFC.PK) announced today that the Company had received a warning letter, dated March 13, 2012, from the Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") related to an inspection of the Company conducted between November 8 and December 12, 2011. The letter outlines observations of those visits.
Dr. Steven Victor, Chairman of IntelliCell Biosciences stated, "The FDA Warning Letter is an opportunity for the Company to discuss the observations of the Company's facilities relating to current good manufacturing practices (cGMP's) with the FDA. The FDA also raised questions regarding the regulatory category that the cells produced by the Company's technology fall into, which the Company also intends to discuss with the FDA. The Company is moving to a new, commercial facility in late April 2012, and believes that the new facility will address the cGMP issues. The Company has also hired consultants and counsel who have extensive experience with applicable FDA regulations, as well as with the requirements of bringing the new facilities on line and in compliance with the FDA's requirements. The Company will be providing comprehensive response to FDA on April 3 that will thoroughly address all of the FDA's observations."
