BOTHELL, Wash., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CellCyte Genetics Corporation (CellCyte) (OTC Bulletin Board: CCYG) has selected the Cardiovascular Phenotyping Core at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to perform a study to further evaluate CellCyte's glycoprotein products. The goal of the study is to investigate the efficiency of CellCyte's glycoprotein products in a preclinical model of myocardial infarction (heart attack).
"We look forward to working with the scientific team at Washington University on this study, which will continue to advance the research and development efforts for our glycoprotein products," noted Ronald W. Berninger, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer at CellCyte. "These are highly experienced researchers, as demonstrated by the fact that they perform more than 6,000 surgical and imaging procedures annually. Outsourcing a portion of the preclinical work allows us to move our program forward more quickly and is complementary to our in-house scientific efforts," Berninger added.
