NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -01/09/12)- Stem Cell stocks -- particularly companies focused on adult stems cells -- have performed well of late. Earlier this month Goldman Sachs noted the potential upside of Pluristem Therapeutics -- noting that the company does not use the highly controversial embryonic stem cells. The remark from the analyst firm helped drive shares of similar companies that use adult stem cells.

In a recent "blog from the chairman" on the company's website, Gary Rabin observes that Advanced Cell Technology now has the distinction of being the only company that is conducting FDA-cleared human clinical trials using human embryonic stem cell-derived therapies. "Both of our ongoing Phase 1/2 trials use human embryonic stem cell (hESC)-derived retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, one for Stargardt's macular dystrophy (SMD) and the other for dry age-related macular degeneration (dry AMD)," Rabin explains.
