Entest BioMedical Projecting Near Term Start Up of Study on Stem Cell and Laser Treatment for COPD at Bio-Matrix Scientific Group's Stem Cell Research Facility

Entest Acquires First of Several Photoceutical Devices for Use in Developing Proprietary Laser Device, ENT-576, Which Will Be Coupled With Stem Cell Therapy in COPD Treatment

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 22, 2010) - Entest BioMedical Inc. (OTCBB: ENTB) announced that it has acquired the first of several photoceutical devices it will be using in the development of its proprietary laser device, ENT-576. This laser device will be used in conjunction with stem cell therapy to enhance efficacy in the regenerative treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

The Company's Chairman & CEO David Koos stated, "We are excited with this first step in moving towards a specialized laser device that will augment stem cell therapy for treating COPD. We believe the ENT-576 can be utilized to 'paint' damaged lung tissue with laser irradiation allowing stem cells therapeutic treatment to 'spot focus' on the damaged tissue resulting in not only a reduction of progression but also an actual reversal of the effects of COPD."

A spokesperson for Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (OTCBB: BMSN) noted that it is anticipated this research will start up shortly at its 15,000 sq. ft. stem cell research facility. The projected outcomes of this study will be the development of ENT-576, a specialized laser device, as well as an effective stem cell therapy for treating COPD.

COPD is the 4th leading cause of death in the United States and there is currently no known cure.
