Medistem Presents at Regenerative Medicine Organization Conference

Chief of Scientific Development to Give Lecture on Patentability in Biotechnology

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 28, 2007 -- Medistem Laboratories' (OTCBB: MDSM) (FRANKFURT: S2U) Thomas Ichim, Chief of Scientific Development, was invited to talk at the 4th Annual Regenerative Medicine Organization Conference in Las Vegas on the subject of "Intellectual Property in Biotechnology."

"We are honored that the Regenerative Medicine Organization would recognize Thomas as an international leader in the area of intellectual property protection and invite him to address such a distinguished audience as that assembled at the current conference," said Neil Riordan, CEO of Medistem. He continued, "Tom's forward-looking approach to patentability issues, as well as his balanced understanding of science, law and development of therapeutics, is a real asset to Medistem as we seek commercialization of pipeline candidates."

The Regenerative Medicine Conference focus this year is on "The Convergence of Science, Business, Medicine and Politics," and features an array of international opinion leaders. The conference is being held at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas from February 26th through February 28th, 2007.

"A great deal of value is lost by scientists not understanding what is and is not patentable," said Thomas Ichim, Medistem's Chief of Scientific Development. "Through enabling scientists and their financial backers to better understand the patent system, what develops is a more productive economic system and as a result society and science move ahead."
