SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2010) - Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CYTX) will be hosting an investor teach-in on cardiac cell therapy on Tuesday, November 16 from 7:00-8:00 AM CT (8:00-9:00 AM ET) from the American Heart Association meeting in Chicago. The goal is to help investors evaluate the several ongoing clinical trials and approaches to using stem cells for the treatment of heart attacks, heart failure and other vascular diseases. The presentation will be webcast live and can be accessed from the Investor Relations section of Cytori's website at http://ir.cytori.com.

Investigators from Cytori's APOLLO and PRECISE studies will review their clinical trial experience, the attributes of various sources for stem cells, and how, when and where cells should be delivered. In addition, they will each discuss future directions for the field, including trial design, endpoints, ways to further enhance the effects of the cells, and how such therapies will integrate with current standard-of-care. A Q&A session will be led and moderated by Jan Wald, PhD, of Noble Financial.
