Partner Olympus, as a Company, has major issues to resolve after the accounting cover-up scandal emerged. Dont want to comment that here, but you can read all about Woodford, Kikukawa and tobashi in the Wikipedia article- Link here
According to Cytori management this scandal doesnt affect the relationship between Cytori and Olympus at all, which could be partially true, but new strategic developments will hardly be possible, since Olympus probably is like a ship after a fire in the machineroom, after which navigation, power supply etc etc is all non functioning. As we speak- late 2012- CEO Sasa has taken over and the BOD is newly installed. In some aspects the Olympus-Cytori relationship seems to be drawing to an end, but certainly not all. Time will tell.
