Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES


LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Cord Blood America, Inc. (OTCBB:CBAI), an umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation company, today announced its six months ending June 30, 2005 consolidated results indicate revenues of $1.485 million, more than doubling the revenues over the same period last year.

COMPANY'S GROWTH WELL AHEAD OF THE INDUSTRY

Gross Profit for the six months ending June 30, 2005 reached $398.8K, again more than double the amount over the same period last year.

In keeping with the company's growth strategy, the selling and administrative costs increased to $2.5M. This increase is largely due to Cord Blood America becoming a public company. The company reported a net loss of $2.26 million in the six months ended June 30, 2005 or $0.06 per diluted share. A large portion of the loss is one-time assessments for issued equity.

Matthew L. Schissler, Chairman and CEO of Cord Blood America, stated: "The company continues to grow rapidly in this time of industry advancement. We're proud of our accomplishments. However, there's a lot more work to be done. The cord blood stem cell industry is still in its infancy, and with proper strategic planning, scientific developments and growth strategies for private banking, this industry could potentially lead the world into a new, universally accepted health care paradigm. As for our company, Cord Blood America feels it has demonstrated great success in this time of development. We believe that we are positioned to be one of the leaders of the umbilical cord blood stem cell industry, and laid the groundwork for a highly successful and profitable company."

The complete second quarter report can be reviewed on the SEC website.
