Stem Cell Company Executives, Scientists, Investors and Physicians will present data Feb. 19 at the 8th Annual New York Stem Cell Summit in New York City

Nov 26, 2012, 14:30 ET from RRY Publications LLC

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RRY Publications LLC today announced that the use of stem cell therapies in 2012 significantly exceeded forecasts which were originally presented at the February 2012 New York Stem Cell Summit. Said Robin Young, stem cell industry analyst and host of the New York meeting: "The range and scope of stem cell therapeutic use in the United States grew much faster than we'd forecasted earlier this year. Virtually all of the increases we're seeing are for adult stem cell therapies and, in particular, the use by physicians of both allograft and autologous stem cell products. It would not be an exaggeration to call this unexpected and remarkable growth."

Mr. Young's revised forecast of stem cell commercialization revenues for 2013-2020 will be presented at the February meeting in New York.

The companies, scientists and physicians that are at the forefront of this remarkable increase in stem cell therapeutic use will be presenting at the 8th Annual New York Stem Cell Summit. Listed below is the preliminary lineup of presenters for the 8th Annual Stem Cell Summit.

The Stem Cell Summit, an intensive one-day event, allows attendees to learn about the latest developments in the stem cell marketplace, evaluate the groundbreaking stem cell products physicians are using today, and discover the growing market potential in terms of revenues. For 2013, the Summit will feature 30+ presenters, a research review and debate session, and a special track on expanding the range of stem cell therapies.

The 8th Annual Stem Cell Summit will take place on Feb. 19, 2013, at Bridgewaters in the heart of New York City's historic South Street Seaport. The preliminary roster of companies featured will include representatives from 2012 presenters and new 2013 presenters.
