NeoStem Hires Experienced Marketing Executive Arlene Graime to Direct Government Affairs and Raise Nationwide Consumer Awareness

New Hire Further Strengthens Senior Management to Accelerate Business Development Programs and Target Key Government Agencies

NEW YORK--(HSMN NewsFeed)--NeoStem, Inc. (OTCBB:NEOI ), the first company to specialize in the collection, processing and storage of stem cells from adult donors for personal use in times of critical medical need, announced today the further expansion of its program to commercialize the Company's proprietary processes and first-to-market competitive advantage to a vast, nationwide consumer base with the hiring of Arlene Graime as Director, Government Affairs and Special Projects.

In her new position, Ms. Graime will spearhead initiatives aimed at working with key federal and state agencies, and crucial Congressional committees in order to raise awareness for the benefits of adult stem cell therapy as a treatment option. NeoStem believes that the use of its proprietary collection, processing and storing capabilities could significantly increase the chances of survival for first-responders, such as firefighters, police officers and the National Guard, who are at risk of suffering from radiation exposure.

"NeoStem is entering a new growth period that will require significant support to maximize our capabilities," said Robin Smith, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of NeoStem. "We believe that Arlene will provide us with the proper guidance and support to reach targeted key government agencies and to raise nationwide consumer awareness for NeoStem's next generation health services. We are fully committed to commercializing our services and to building shareholder value."

Ms. Graime has had an accomplished and multifaceted career in corporate marketing, special event planning and working with the House of Representatives. She also worked with key staff members of two White House administrations.

As the Senior Director of Marketing at Coach, Inc., she directed an executive sales team that introduced new marketing strategies, processes and procedures that successfully achieved financial objectives. She also served as the National Director of Events for the United States Olympic Committee, working on diplomatic efforts to promote goodwill and sportsmanship through public relations with United States and International Olympic athletes.

"NeoStem offers a rare opportunity to join a world-class team of executives working in the early stages of the next healthcare revolution," said Ms. Graime. "My experience will serve to develop the strategies that communicate the promise of adult stem cells to a general audience. I look forward to contributing to NeoStem and furthering the Company's vision."

NeoStem is developing a nationwide health-industry network to capitalize on the predicted $8.5 billion-dollar stem cell therapeutics industry. NeoStem's visionary senior management, non-capital intensive business model and proprietary processes are making an immediate impact in what many believe to be the "next big thing in consumer health marketing." The Company has termed this paradigm shift in the medical industry as "bio-insurance," which empowers health-conscious adults to have their own (autologous) stem cells collected and banked to ensure prompt access for therapeutic use in times of critical medical need.
