Overview, page 1

2.     You state in the first paragraph that your technology "allows for the
proliferation of
       donor cells while maintaining the cells' functional therapeutic
       providing a treatment alternative for patients." You then state on page
3 that your
       technology "increases engraftment efficiency in HSCT and enables
engraftment and
       immune system reconstitution," and that NiCord thus "may serve as a
       readily-available, reliable and effective alternative to existing
sources of donor cells
       for HSCT." You also state on page 92 that "NiCord delivers a
       effective dose of stem cells, leading to rapid engraftment and immune
       Since an efficacy determination is solely within the FDA's authority and
       continuously evaluated throughout all phases of the clinical

       remove these and all other statements or implications regarding the
potential efficacy
       of your product candidates.

3.     Please revise your pipeline chart here and on page 86 to specify the
       malignancies" which NiCord and NAM-NK are being tested to treat. Also,
given that
       NAM-NK is currently in a Phase 1 trial, please revise your pipeline
charts to present
       Phase 1 and Phase 2 in separate columns or explain why you believe the
       presentation is appropriate.
