The American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians (AAOSCP) is an organization created to advance the research and development of therapeutics in regenerative medicine, including diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease related to or occurring within the human body. Its aim is to be an educational resource for physicians, scientists, and the public in diseases that can be caused by physiological dysfunction that are ameliorable to medical treatment. [Read more…]
Hemostemix Inc. (“Hemostemix”) (TSX Venture:HEM; OTCQB:HMTXF) is a publicly traded clinical-stage biotech company that develops and commercializes blood-derived stem cell therapies for medical conditions lacking adequate treatment options. Importantly, it is one of the first clinical-stage biotech companies to test a stem cell therapy within an international, multi-center Phase II clinical trial for patients with critical limb ischemia (“CLI”). CLI is a severe form of peripheral artery disease (“PAD”) that is caused by reduced blood flow to the extremities. After showing promising results in a Phase I trial and with a large number of historical patient treatments performed in open trials, Hemostemix’s Phase II trial targets a participant’s diseased tissue with proprietary cells grown from his or her blood that can support the formation of new blood vessels. This lead cell therapy product is called ACP-01. [Read more…]
iPSCs have been created using mRNA technologies, with cGMP control from donor screening, consenting, to skin punch, and throughout cell bank production.
SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, December 4, 2018 — After 3 years of cleanroom construction and 2 years of quality system establishment, Allele Biotech has produced its initial batch of 6 iPSC (induced pluripotent stem cells) lines that are ready for prime time. [Read more…]
Growth of the iPSC market is supported by an increasing number of clinical studies that are investigating the therapeutic potential of iPSC-derived cell therapy products. Induced pluripotent stem cells (called iPSCs or iPS cells) are a type of stem cell that can become any cell within the human body, giving them enormous potential for use within regenerative medicine.
