Stock Watch: BTEM Completes a Full Spanish Translation of Its Highly Praised Informational Website! April 11, 2006

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Biostem Inc., (OTC BB: BTEM), Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX), Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) and Schering-Plough Corporation (NYSE: SGP).

Once again, Biostem Inc., (OTC BB: BTEM) due to its pending acquisition of Cryobanks International, may be a target of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that it has completed a full Spanish translation of the company's highly praised informational website.

Investors should note: Why is this important? Because the website is considered a fundamental component in educating the Hispanic population and increasing minority cord blood donations. And what's more; Cryobanks International is currently a world leader in cord blood collection, processing, and banking. The company is the only bank in the United States who accepts cord blood donations from anywhere in the Continental United States.

Through the National Cord Blood Act passed in 2005, the federal government has appropriated $79 million to build a national cord blood bank targeting, in particular, ethnic minority donors. Cryobanks expects to receive a significant portion of these funds for its participation in building the national data bank. The company's Spanish enabled website will be key in informing potential Hispanic donors on how they can participate.

Investors should continue to monitor the progress of Biostem and Cryobanks International! "The Hispanic community has been seeking a quality informational site dealing with cord blood, and we are thrilled to provide it. Concentrating our efforts in educating the Hispanic community about cord blood donations brings us one step closer in our mission to accommodate anyone in need of a life saving transplant," says Dwight Brunoehler, President & CEO of Cryobanks International.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Biostem and Cryobanks International! According to the latest U.S. Census, 2000, Hispanics represented 12.5% of the population. Yet, in the National Bone Marrow Donor program, they represent only 7% of the donor pool. Unfortunately, this leaves the Hispanic community 37% underrepresented. Since these stem cell transplants typically originate from donors of similar ethnic backgrounds, this under representation of the Hispanic community represents a real life and death issue for those in need.

Prior to the latest press release, the stock closed yesterday at $4.10 a share.

In case you are not familiar with the company: Cryobanks International, is a corporation located in Altamonte Springs, Fl., which is to be acquired by BioStem, Inc. (OTC BB: BTEM). The Company is a leader in the collection, processing, and banking of stem cellsderived from the umbilical cord immediately after birth. The units of cord blood (CB) are processed and stored by the company for use in unrelated transplants (where the donor is a histocompatible match, but is anonymous and unrelated to the recipient) and for personal storage and use. In recent years, cord blood transplants (CBTs) have become widely recognized as a safe, effective, and in many ways preferable, alternative to bone marrow transplant (BMT). There is tremendous potential need for CBTs in the United States and worldwide. Cryobanks International is well poised to help meet that need, equipped with an inventory of nearly 9,000 cord blood units.

"Alcoa gave quarterly results and the first-quarter reporting period really kicks-off this week as U.S. companies, analysts and economists predict, will be showing solid results. However, interest rate worries are in the near future; the 10-year Treasury note is at 4.97% and the 30-year note is at 5%, plus the increased cost of oil and energy will be a factor in future earnings. Nationally, the average cost of gasoline is at $2.67 for regular unleaded, up by 17 cents in the last 2 weeks alone," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
