International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.39, up 2.63%, on 182,103 volume with 50 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 211,200, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.65.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

The funding procured from this agreement will provide working capital and allow the company to identify potential merger and acquisitions that will strengthen its ability to compete in the online and mobile gaming market place.

Today before the opening bell, VIASPACE announced that it has harvested a large number of seedlings from its Giant King Grass nursery in California and had them transported in a 40-foot refrigerated container to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands where they have been planted in a 25-acre propagation nursery operated by Tibbar Energy. Tibbar plans to propagate the Giant King Grass to create a 1,000+ acre plantation to fuel the 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant under construction.
According to today’s press release, the Giant King Grass will be ready to propagate within six months. Tibbar anticipates having the power plant in operation in the first quarter of next year. The St. Croix Public Services Commission approved Tibbar Energy’s facility design for a 7 MW anaerobic generator that uses VIASPACE’s proprietary Giant King Grass energy crop in December 2012.
Tibbar Energy’s St. Croix project will be as close to organic farming as possible using the digestate from the anaerobic digestion process as a fertilizer to grow Giant King Grass. According to Tibbar President and CEO Tania Tomyn, the farm will be a conventional farming operation. Additionally, Tibbar will have a small amount of compressed natural gas that will be produced from the bio-gas to run the fleet of trucks that haul the Giant King Grass. These will be the first compressed natural gas trucks on St. Croix.
Tibbar Energy signed an exclusive agreement with VIASPACE in September 2012 and received a small initial shipment of Giant King Grass as an initial test. This Giant King Grass is now four months old and over 10 feet tall.
Tomyn commented, “The Giant King Grass grows well in tropical St. Croix. The test was very successful, and we decided to go forward with the 25 acre propagation nursery. We are slated to have the full plantation and power plant up and running by early second quarter of 2014.

“The 20 plus acre shipment to Tibbar was our largest from the propagation nursery in California,” stated VIASPACE CEO Dr. Carl Kukkonen. “Late December and January was a very busy time for VIASPACE. We shipped and planted Giant King Grass in South Africa, Hawaii and Central America in addition to St. Croix. The Department of Agriculture is working very closely with us to inspect the shipments and issue the phytosanitary certificates that show that the Giant King Grass is pest and disease free.”
VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, added, “Having USDA approval of Giant King Grass and our domestic propagation nursery in California, have both significantly contributed to our ability to respond to our customers and the ever increasing demand for GKG as the world’s highest yielding biomass platform. This is certainly true in our partnership with Tibbar Energy in St. Croix and we are so pleased with every aspect of our project there. We are receiving more requests for proposals than ever before and believe that the rapidly increasing global demand has made GKG the biomass platform of choice because its high yield makes the economics of this green energy business profitable.

The jump in exposure being given by print and online media to ISCO subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care is highlighted with the recent endorsement by celebrity Mariel Hemingway. The popular screen star has begun promoting Lifeline’s Eye Firming Complex on social shopping network OpenSky.com. There is no marketing influence greater than the recommendation of a friend, relative, or respected acquaintance, and OpenSky taps that power. OpenSky is a platform that connects unique product creators (suppliers) with the world’s most influential content creators (sellers), resulting in shoppers getting to buy goods from the people they know and trust.
Here is a peek at Mariel’s endorsement:
“The skin around our eyes is very delicate, and it gets more fragile as the years go by. But you can restore firmness, fade dark circles, and relax wrinkles without seeing a surgeon—believe me! I love Lifeline’s Eye Firming Complex and use it faithfully to keep my eye area bright and smooth. The “secret” is in the smart blend of anti-aging ingredients. What’s really unique about this Lifeline complex are the non-embryonic stem cell extracts. They plump up thinning skin from the inside out by replacing old skin cells with healthy new cells. This is really unlike anything else you’ll find, and you can see the remarkable results. Plus, proteins and peptides stimulate collagen production to do everything from zap puffiness to tighten skin, and hydrators like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid keep your delicate eye area soft and moisturized.
I dab on a small amount in the morning and again at night. I love that I wake up with bright, refreshed eyes—now I actually look as well-rested as I feel!”
Lifeline Skin Care is the creator of advanced rejuvenating stem cell skin creams. In December of 2012, they hosted a breakfast for 40+ editors (newspaper, magazine, and online) in New York City, and got an overwhelming response from which they are now beginning to reap the publicity rewards.
