NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- IntelliCell BioSciences, Inc. ("Company") (SVFC) announced today that it has been notified according to the FDA validation registration number 3009842420, that its new facility located at 460 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10022 is now registered to recover, process, package, store, and label human cells and tissue products (HCT/P's) such as the IntelliCell autologous stromal vascular fraction cellular product. In the registration notification, FDA acknowledged that the IntelliCell process is to be covered under regulations for tissue products. The HCT/P regulations are described in 21 CFR section 1271.10.
IntelliCell's Chairman and CEO, Dr. Steven Victor, stated "Our Company is very pleased to announce today that our new cellular processing facility has now been registered to process an individual's own tissue for the purpose of acquiring their stem and regenerative cells for use in regenerative medicine. The IntelliCell processing technology is designed to allow physicians to treat their patients during a same day and same procedure basis much the same way that bone marrow transplants and IVF treatments are performed today. This is a significant step for the Company as it continues its mission to be a leading regenerative medicine company. We look forward to continuing to work with FDA as we prepare a number of clinical studies for disease states with high unmet clinical needs."
Robert Sexauer, EVP of Clinical Development stated "We can now begin to move forward with our plans for in-human clinical studies such as lower limb ischemia by applying to Institutional Review Boards (IRB's) with study protocols and laboratory processes that will be compliant with the federal and state regulations. By operating under regulations for 21 CFR 1271.10 regulations, similar to autologous tissue transplants, we may be able to prepare a number of regenerative medicine projects and we look forward to working with FDA to meet any and all requirements."
