As the most common stem cell type being used within regenerative medicine, there is huge potential for growth within the mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) market. Today, MSCs are the most common stem cell type being used within clinical trials, as well as the most studied stem cell type within the scientific literature. [Read more…]
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a well-characterized population of adult stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types (chondrocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, myocytes, and more).
Cynata Therapeutics Ltd (ASX: CYP) is a clinical stage regenerative medicine company specializing in stem cell therapeutics that has a proprietary technology for manufacturing induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
I had the honor of interviewing Dr Ross Macdonald, CEO of Cynata Therapeutics. In this interview, we discuss Cynata’s technology platform, the company’s world first achievements, and its clinical trial underway for GvHD.
