Advanced Cell Technology

Please describe the work that you are doing that you consider to be the most innovative and of the greatest likely long-term significance.

Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. is the leading biotechnology company in the emerging field of regenerative medicine.

Our focus is on the production of young cells for the treatment of cell degenerative disease. Our technology platform offers four distinct advantages over our competition:

- Our technology utilizes nuclear transfer (cloning) technology to produce healthy cells or tissue of any type with an identical genetic match to the patient's own DNA. This eliminates the risk of the cells being rejected by the patient's immune system.

- Our technology regenerates the cell lifespan, thereby making "young" cells available for aging patients.

- Our technology allows for precise genetic modification at the cellular level to cure genetic disorders as part of the treatment process.

- Our Reduced Complexity Library (RCL) technology offers an off-the-shelf product for acute indications where nuclear transfer is not appropriate.

The combination of these unprecedented advances - the ability to produce young cells of any kind, genetically modified in any way, genetically compatible with the patient - is the hallmark and strength of Advanced Cell Technology's platform.
