    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the regenerative therapies market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Cytomedix, Inc. with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award for its Angel® concentrated platelet-rich plasma (cPRP) system that takes significant strides forward for the emerging tissue regeneration applications market.
