Corrected: USRM Posts Earnings for Second Quarter 2019

SUNRISE, FL – August 7, 2019 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced earnings for the second quarter that ended June 30, 2019. Correction: U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. posted second-quarter revenues of $1.2M.

While second-quarter earnings lagged, the Company’s results took into account the current regulatory environment. Compared to second quarter of 2018, year-over-year revenue decreased $522k or 29%, from $1.8M to $1.2M. Likewise for the six month period ending June 30, 2019 over six months, the Company’s revenue reduced $926k or 26%.

After 12 quarters of steady growth, the Company saw its first significant dip starting in January 2019.

“While the Company was fortunate to see tremendous growth for nearly four years, pioneering the field of stem cell treatment does not come without obstacles. We have introduced new products and will continue to adjust the business accordingly as we navigate the complexities of an evolving regulatory structure,” said Mike Tomas, President  & CEO of U.S. Stem Cell Inc.

“We are transitioning the clinics to a more diversified regenerative medicine platform, while complying with recent court rulings. While we are considering our appellate options to seek a reversal of those rulings, we are planning to replace the demand for adipose stem cell therapies in the coming years and we expect to see a lag as we shift the business.”

Net decrease in gross profit margin for the second quarter 2019 was 36.8%, or $791k, compared to second quarter 2018. Operating expenses were down 36.1% or $750k, for the second quarter, and also decreased for six-month ending 2019 23.8% from $3.2M to $2.5M.

Working capital deficit is up for the second quarter, $7.1M from $4.4M since December 2018 due to current maturities from Promissory Notes. Net operating income (loss) from operations decreased from ($823k) to ($534k) from the same period last year. Income (loss) from operations decreased from ($933k) in the six-month ending June 30, 2018, to a loss of ($832k) in the six month ending June 30, 2019.

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. is a leader in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry. To management’s knowledge, USRM has completed more autologous stem cell clinical treatments than any other stem cell company in the world.

USRM Posts Financial Results for First Quarter 2019

SUNRISE, FL – May 7, 2019 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

For the first time in two years, the Company’s revenue decreased.  The drop was 24%, from $1.7M in the first quarter of 2018 to $1.3M in the current quarter.  

“ We are working to achieve the transition of the autologous stem cell space  from relatively unknown to a recognized, viable option in the marketplace, as more and more people learn about the healing potential from their own stem cells,” said Mike Tomas, President and CEO of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc.  “This quarter we saw a negative shift in our quarterly revenues and earnings. As the benefits of autologous stem cell therapy become more and more relevant, we look forward to continuing to provide leadership and opportunity in the field of regenerative care.”

The Company’s gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 decreased 35% compared to the same period last year, from $1.2M to $0.8M.  Operating expenses were down 3% or $33k, for the first quarter of 2019 compared to last year, but remained at approximately $1.2M, due in large part to the Company’s costs associated with the legal effort to defend, among other matters,  claims challenging autologous stem cell therapy.

“Americans are given the technology inside their own bodies to heal, and we feel strongly the opportunity is here to preserve access to this treatment as an effective, regenerative therapy whose time has come,” said Dr. Kristin Comella.  “We are confident there will be a time when this therapy is part of the standard of care, and we look forward to that day.”

Working capital deficit at the end of the first quarter of 2019 was up 9% to $4.8M, compared to $4.4M at year end 2018. The Company’s operating loss increased from $9k in the first quarter of 2018 to $399k for the first quarter of 2019.  

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. is a leader in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry specializing in physician training and certification and stem cell products including its leading therapy Adipocell™, as well as veterinary stem cell training, stem cell banking, and the creation and the management of stem cell clinics.  To management’s knowledge, USRM has completed more autologous stem cell clinical treatments than any other stem cell company in the world.

USRM Posts Increase in Revenue and Profit Margin for 2018

SUNRISE, FL – March 13, 2019 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced positive financial results for the year ended December 31, 2018.

Consistent with performance for the past two years, revenue continues to increase, up 21% or $1.2m for year-end, 2018 compared to 2017, from $5.5m to $6.7m.   Likewise, for the three months ended December 31, 2018, the Company reported a $190k or 13% increase in revenue, from $1.5m to $1.7m, compared to the same period last year.

“It is remarkable to watch demand increase for stem cell therapy, as more and more Americans are exploring this option as a solution for chronic pain,” said Mike Tomas, President and CEO of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc.  “We are on the cusp of regenerative medicine becoming a more integral part of patient plan of care,” said Tomas.

Net increase in gross profit margin for year end 2018 compared to 2017 is 26%, or $955k, from $3.6m to $4.6m. Likewise net increase in gross profit margin for the three months ended December 31, 2018, compared to the same period in 2017, is 25%, or $232k, from $936k to $1.2m.  

Operating expenses increased 28%, from $4.4m to $5.7m for the year end, and 55% from $784k to $1.2m for the three months ended Dec. 31, mostly due to stock-based and other employee compensation.  Non-cash compensation for the year and for the three months ended Dec. 31 also increased, from $645k to $1.2m and from $83k to $416k, respectively.

Net operating (loss) was $1.1m for 2018, compared to $805k for 2017. For the three months ended December 31, 2018, net operating (loss) was $47k compared to a profit of $152k for the same period last year.

Currently, Americans have the option to either utilize their own healing stem cells harvested from fat or bone marrow or to use tissue-based products like those from birth tissue or cord blood.  Dr. Kristin Comella, USRM’s Chief Science Officer, is one of the most published scientists in the world on autologous adipose stem cell therapy. She and her colleagues have published several articles in the past few months regarding the benefits of autologous stem cell therapy for chronic conditions, including decubitus ulcers (perpetual sores common in spinal injury patients and the elderly); meniscal tears, and psoriasis.  Chronic conditions can cause chronic pain — the source of a national opioid epidemic which The New York Times reports is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50.

Autologous stem cell therapy involves taking a small sample of a patient’s fat and separating the stem cells from the fat or adipose tissue. Because there are 500 times more stem cells from fat as compared to bone marrow (and much less invasive to retrieve), the protocol has begun to attract more and more patients in the United States, even though the treatment has been available abroad and offshore for many years.  

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. is a leader in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry specializing in physician training and certification and stem cell products including its leading therapy Adipocell™, as well as veterinary stem cell training, stem cell banking, and the creation and the management of stem cell clinics.  To management’s knowledge, USRM has completed more autologous stem cell clinical treatments than any other stem cell company in the world.

USRM Chief Science Officer Featured on One Radio Network

SUNRISE, FL – January 15, 2019 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced its Chief Science Officer has been featured on Patrick Timpone’s One Radio Network. Playback of the interview is available here.

Dr. Kristin Comella, who has been frequently published in the scientific literature on the use and application of autologous (a patient’s own) adipose-derived stem cells, will speak on her expertise in the autologous stem cell space. Americans’ interest in stem cell therapy continues to grow, demand for Dr. Comella to present on the topic continues to increase.

“The interest surrounding the application of stem cell therapy as an alternative to chronic drug use is on the rise and is driving the advancement of regenerative medicine,” said Dr. Comella.  “We continue to see the positioning of stem cell therapy as an emergent catalyst that will impact the standard of care for our nation. In the coming years we will see more and more demand for information and education, as patients with chronic pain continue to learn more and more about their options for regenerating damaged tissue.”

Currently, Americans have the option to either utilize their own healing stem cells harvested from fat, bone marrow or to use tissue-based products like those manufactured from birth tissue or cord blood.

In the past twelve months alone, Dr. Comella has published several articles regarding the benefits of autologous stem cell therapy for chronic conditions, including decubitus ulcers (perpetual sores common in spinal injury patients and the elderly); meniscal tears, and psoriasis.  Chronic conditions can cause chronic pain — the source of a national opioid epidemic which The New York Times reports is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50.

Autologous stem cell therapy involves taking a small sample of a patient’s fat and separating the stem cells from the fat or adipose tissue. Because stem cells from fat are 500 times more plentiful than stem cells harvested from bone marrow (and much less invasive to retrieve), the protocol has begun to attract more and more patients in the United States, even though the treatment has been available abroad and offshore for many years.

Dr. Kristin Comella Featured on Robert Scott Bell Show

USRM Chief Science Officer Discusses Health Freedom Surrounding Autologous Stem Cell Industry

SUNRISE, FL – November 9, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced its Chief Science Officer, Dr. Kristin Comella, has appeared on the Robert Scott Bell Show to talk about health freedom and autologous stem cell therapy. The interview can be listened to in its entirety here.

Autologous (a patient’s own) stem cell therapy is currently being researched in autoimmune, neurological, orthopedic and degenerative conditions.  As one of the world’s leaders in autologous stem cell therapy, Dr. Comella is extensively published in peer reviewed scientific publications indexed on Pubmed in the field of regenerative medicine. This year thus far, she has published several peer reviewed papers demonstrating the benefits of autologous stem cell therapy for chronic conditions, including decubitus ulcers (perpetual sores common in spinal injury patients and the elderly); meniscal tears, and psoriasis.  Chronic conditions can cause chronic pain — the source of a national opioid epidemic which The New York Times reports is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50.

Through Dr. Comella’s leadership, she and her team have trained and certified  more than 700+ physicians worldwide in stem cell therapy.  She was named number 24 on Terrapin’s list of the Top 50 Global Stem Cell Influencers and no. 1 on the Academy of Regenerative Practices’ list of Top 10 Stem Cell Innovators.  She also made the list of Top 50 Functional and Integrative Medical Doctors/Scientists in the country by DrAxe.com, one of the most visited natural health websites in the world.  

Dr. Comella is taking an important stand to ensure your stem cells are not declared a drug” said Robert Scott Bell. “We will continue to monitor the FDA’s and Dr. Comella’s efforts in this endeavor.”

“It is important to continue informing Americans about adipose-derived, autologous (a patient’s own) stem cell therapy and its availability — today — for managing the repair of tissue damage, chronic pain and other conditions,” said Dr. Comella.  “Robert is a voice for health freedom, and it was great to have the opportunity to share with him our concerns in attempting to prevent Americans from having access to the healing cells in their own bodies.”

Autologous stem cell therapy involves taking a small sample of patient’s fat and separating the healing stem cells from the fat or adipose tissue. Fat tissue has a higher amount of stem cells than bone marrow and is much less invasive to retrieve. The healing stem cells are then re-injected locally into a joint or used intravenously for systemic circulation where they may repair damaged tissue in the body.  Once the stem cells are separated out from the patient’s own fat, they are simply relocated in their body.

Six days a week, Robert Scott Bell empowers his listeners with healing principles.  He hosts two hours of informational radio dealing with everyday health issues from the perspective of alternative/holistic health care. He also fearlessly tackles the tough issues including confronting government and corporations who would stand in the way of health freedom.  Bell has personally overcome numerous chronic diseases using natural healing principles, and has dedicated his life to revealing the healing power within all of us. He is a well-known and respected member of the health community and has access to guests from every specialty and practice to better equip listeners to heal themselves from the inside out.

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. is a leader in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry specializing in physician training and certification and stem cell products including its lead product Adipocell™, as well as veterinary stem cell training, stem cell banking, and the creation and the management of stem cell clinics.  To management’s knowledge, USRM has completed more clinical treatments than any other stem cell company in the world.

USRM Posts 25% Nine Month Revenue Increase From 3Q 2017

Profit Margins Continue to Increase As Costs And Operating Expenses Decrease

SUNRISE, FL – November 06, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced third quarter results for this year and comparatively from last year, for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2018.

As has been the trend for the past several years, revenue continues to rise — almost $1M or 25% for the period compared to the same period last year —  from $4.04M in 3Q 2017 to $5.03M in 3Q 2018. Gross profit margins also increased, $723K or 26.8%, from $2.69M to $3.42M for the same time period. Operating expenses decreased $850K or 42%, from $2.02M to $1.17M.  Net Loss from operations decreased $838K or 79.3%, from $1M to $218K during the same nine months ended this year versus last.

“Our financials directly reflect the success of our ongoing efforts to simultaneously expand and streamline operations to continue to serve the increasing market demand for stem cell therapy and regenerative health services,” said Mike Tomas, President and CEO of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc.  “Driving innovative therapies while helping to define and set industry standards requires a delicate balance. We are working hard to achieve that balance, and I believe our third quarter financials demonstrate that effort.”

For two consecutive years, U.S. Stem Cell, Inc., has continued to sustain substantial revenue growth, which may be attributable to an increased awareness of stem cell therapy, as Americans seek alternatives to pain management and opioids.  The Company has also been instrumental in providing more than ten thousand stem cell procedures in the past 19 years for a variety of indications, including orthopedic, autoimmune, degenerative and neurological diseases.  USRM also trains and certifies physicians in stem cell therapy — to date, more than 700+ physicians worldwide — and has engaged with more than 288 clinics.

Adipose Stem Cells Demonstrate Effectiveness in Repairing Decubitus Ulcers

Paper Published by USRM Chief Science Officer in Journal of Medical Cases

SUNRISE, FL – October 9, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced it has published in the scientific literature that it has successfully used autologous stem cells from fat tissue to repair decubitus ulcers.

A decubitus ulcer is a wound on the skin also known as a pressure ulcer which typically occurs over bony skin, such as buttocks.  These wounds can be common in spinal cord injury patients with limited mobility. The number of patients with pressure ulcers is estimated to be between 1.3 to 3 million in the United States.  The number of hospitalizations as a result of decubitus ulcers has increased by more than 75% between 1993 and 2006.

“We continue to identify beneficial ways to utilize our own healing stem cells retrieved from fat tissue for therapeutic use,” said Dr. Kristin Comella, USRM’s Chief Science Officer and author of the paper, “and decubitus ulcers are an important market given the aging baby boomer demographic.  The elegance and simplicity of this effective therapy cannot be overstated. It’s an incredible opportunity to utilize a patient’s own cells to repair tissue damage without the use of drugs.”

Non-healing decubitus ulcers can be challenging to treat and may often progress to other life-threatening complications.  Significant tissue damage is present in stage three/four wounds and treatment options can be limited or present additional risks.  Applications of regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy are rapidly expanding in particular in the field of non-healing wounds.  Adipose tissue is a rich source of autologous stem cells which can be easily isolated in an outpatient visit.

The paper documents a 49-year-old male with prior incomplete spinal cord injury with Stage 3 decubitus ulcer on the buttocks.  The wound had persisted for 8 months with full thickness loss of epidermis and no exposure of underlying bone, muscle or tendon.  Prior interventions include wound cleansing with hydrogen peroxide, wound dressing with Eusol (bleach, boric acid, and water) and gauze, and pressure relief by changing of position in bed.  

The patient’s autologous cells were injected directly into the ulcer.  The wound was monitored and tracked with imaging and the patient was tracked for quality of life parameters as well as safety (adverse events).  No complications or other safety events were reported either during the procedure or in the months following the procedure. The patient reported reduction of pain consistent with wound healing and a willingness to repeat therapies if required.  The healing stage 3 pressure injury showed clear re-epithelialization.

USRM Hires Senior VP of US & International Sales

Former Abbott Pharmaceuticals, Stem Cell Centers Exec Joins Team

_________________________________________

SUNRISE, FL – September 11, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced Phil Posa has joined its executive management team as Senior Vice President of U.S. & International Sales.

Posa, who brings more than 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical, medical device and regenerative spaces, most recently served as an Executive and CEO at Stem Cell Centers of Idaho, where he assisted in the launch and management of new and existing clinics — at a rapid growth rate of approximately one clinic per month.

As part of the management process, Posa maintained quality control and efficiency company wide, starting with the successful negotiation of contracts with manufacturers and suppliers to provide the best possible product at the lowest possible cost.  He was also responsible for successfully designing and initiating a shift in training curriculum by emphasizing a focus on marketing, product and protocols for treatment and conditions, which resulted in the incorporation of a seamless program for patient flow thereby allowing the company to track from lead generation to patient satisfaction following treatment.

By focusing on conversion rates, service and best possible outcomes, Posa’s successful approach in design, implementation and execution helped bring sales to an all-time monthly high, resulting in a new benchmark for the company’s profitability. It also launched regenerative medicine into traditional insurance reimbursement medical practices, thereby converting them into ‘white glove’ concierge care cash practices.

“We are ecstatic to have Phil join our team, especially when we are at a pivotal point in expansion and diversification,” said Mike Tomas, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Stem Cell, Inc.  “The ability to assist in growing our markets both domestically and internationally is one of many skill sets Phil brings to the team. Combined with his expertise in the launch and clinical expansion in the stem cell arena, he is the perfect fit for us at this time.”    

Prior to his tenure at SCC, Posa also served as Senior Vice President U.S. & International Sales for Whale Imaging, Boston, and Skyline Medical, of Minnesota, respectively.  He received his MBA from Rivier College in New Hampshire, and a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, NY.  He also was certified as a Public Health Advisor by the State of New York, and as an epidemiologist by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

“I am very excited about the potential of U.S. Stem Cell in the U.S. and International markets, and am looking forward to building upon the world-class reputation the Company has built over the past twenty years,” said Posa.  “It is a great opportunity at just the right time in the marketplace. I am looking forward to hitting the ground running to help bring USRM to its next level of success.”

Posa also received 15 All Star awards during his tenure at Abbott Pharmaceuticals as a sales leader and manager.

Stem Cells Shows Promise For Repairing Torn Meniscus

SUNRISE, FL – July 10, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced it has demonstrated successful, in-human results in repairing meniscus tear after autologous stem cell therapy from adipose or fat tissue.  

Results are published in the scientific publication the Journal of Medical Cases, and is authored by USRM Chief Science Officer Dr. Kristin Comella and colleagues Dr. Scott Greenberg of the Magaziner Center for Wellness, and Dr. Laura Ross of Ross Orthopedic.

“The ability to provide this kind of therapy to Americans can be life changing,” said Dr. Comella.  “Use of one’s own healing cells to help repair damaged tissue rather than having to cut open or manipulate the damaged area to try to reduce pain and restore function is the most elegant form of regenerative medicine we have today.”

Meniscal injuries are the most common knee injury in the United States with an annual average of incidence of 66 per 100,000, according to a 2014 article in the Journal of Orthopedics.  Approximately 850,000 patients each year are surgically treated — often arthroscopically — for meniscal injuries.  

The paper outlines the case study of a 56-year-old male with a chronic meniscus injury.  During the 12-month follow-up period, the patient reported a reduction in pain and an improvement in knee function. Figure 1a shows a tear at baseline on the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, while Figure 1b, taken 9 months after the first injection shows complete resolution of the tear. The healed tear could not be penetrated by the probe.

The arthroscopic images showing resolution were also consistent with quality of life improvements for the patient, including a reduction in pain and resumption of normal activities. The patient experienced very little downtime and was able to resume normal activities in less than 1 week.

Dr. Comella, who has more than 20+ years’ experience, is recognized worldwide by her peers as an innovator and world leader in the development and clinical practice of stem cell products and therapies.  USRM has been a part of more than 10,000 stem cell procedures in the past 19 years for a variety of indications including orthopedic, autoimmune, degenerative and neurological diseases.  

U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. is an emerging leader in the regenerative medicine / cellular therapy industry specializing in physician training and certification and stem cell products including its lead product AdipocellTM, as well as veterinary stem cell training and stem cell banking and creation and management of stem cell clinics.  To management’s knowledge, USRM has completed more clinical treatments than any other stem cell company in the world.

‘Renewing Our Heroes’ to Provide USRM Stem Cell Protocol to First Responders

SUNRISE, FL – June 5, 2018 – U.S. Stem Cell, Inc. (OTC: USRM), a leader in the development of proprietary, physician-based stem cell therapies and novel regenerative medicine solutions, today announced Renewing Our Heroes  — a charitable health initiative established to provide first responders and other civil service personnel with access to alternative medical care they would otherwise be unable to obtain — will now offer USRM stem cell procedures and protocols to its recipients following injuries and conditions that occur in the line of duty.

Established by Joseph Radich, Founder and Clinical Director of  RenewU Medical and son of an actively serving New York City firefighter, Renewing Our Heroes was created as a charitable health initiative to help individuals who voluntarily and without hesitation put their bodies, minds, families and lives on the line every day.

“I see the power of regenerative medicine, and because U.S. Stem Cell Clinic and Dr. Kristin Comella are the industry standard for holistic, autologous stem cell therapy, it only makes sense to make this protocol available to the fine men and women who serve our country,” said Radich. “Renewing Our Heroes is a way we as Americans can give back, and help them have access to what they deserve, the very best regenerative medicine has to offer.”

Dr. Kristin Comella, USRM’s Chief Science Officer, is one of the most published scientists in the world for the clinical application of autologous fat derived stem cell therapies. She is also President of the Academy of Regenerative Practices, and is a leading voice in the power of regenerative medicine.

“This is exactly why we do what we do: helping the good people of our nation find the possibility of living healthier, longer lives so that they continue to do what they do best.  For almost 20 years, I have researched, studied, tested, published and provided access to the healing, autologous stem cells in people’s bodies,” said Dr. Kristin Comella, USRM’s Chief Science Officer.  “It is a privilege to be tapping into this holistic form of stem cell therapy and to continue to serve in furthering this mission worldwide.”

“Expansion of our stem cell protocol into the line of service for our first responders means we are starting to reach more and more Americans who otherwise would never have access to this incredible regenerative therapy,” said Mike Tomas, USRM’s President and CEO.  “It is an honor for our organization to know the true heroes of our country can now have access to this standard of care.”

Dr. Comella’s leadership role inspires other organizations and physicians — 700+ clinicians and 287+ clinics worldwide — many of whom train and certify with her and the team at the U.S. Stem Cell Clinic in Sunrise, Florida.
