The published article features BioRestorative Therapies, and focuses on BRTX-100, the Company’s lead therapeutic candidate for chronic lumbar disc disease, which is cleared for a Phase 2 FDA clinical study. “We are honored to have been selected as a Top Spine Company by MedTech Outlook and included in its listing of 10 companies that are at the forefront of providing Spine Device solutions and impacting the industry. Our approach to treat chronic lumbar disc disease using autologuous mesenchemal stem cells that have been engineered to survive the harsh environment of the damaged disc is intended to address a large and growing population of patients that suffer from back pain globally”, explained Lance Alstodt, CEO of BioRestorative.
In addition to BRTX-100, the magazine article also highlights another of BioRestorative’s technology platforms, its pre-clinical ThermoStem® program, utilizing brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to target treatment of metabolic diseases and disorders.
About BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (www.biorestorative.com) develops therapeutic products using cell and tissue protocols, primarily involving adult stem cells. Our two core programs, as described below, relate to the treatment of disc/spine disease and metabolic disorders:
• Disc/Spine Program (brtxDISC™): Our lead cell therapy candidate, BRTX-100, is a product formulated from autologous (or a person’s own) cultured mesenchymal stem cells collected from the patient’s bone marrow. We intend that the product will be used for the non-surgical treatment of painful lumbosacral disc disorders. The BRTX-100 production process utilizes proprietary technology and involves collecting a patient’s bone marrow, isolating and culturing stem cells from the bone marrow and cryopreserving the cells. In an outpatient procedure, BRTX-100 is to be injected by a physician into the patient’s damaged disc. The treatment is intended for patients whose pain has not been alleviated by non-invasive procedures and who potentially face the prospect of surgery. We have received authorization from the Food and Drug Administration to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial using BRTX-100 to treat persistent lower back pain due to painful degenerative discs.
• Metabolic Program (ThermoStem®): We are developing a cell-based therapy to target obesity and metabolic disorders using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue (“BAT”). BAT is intended to mimic naturally occurring brown adipose depots that regulate metabolic homeostasis in humans. Initial preclinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels. Researchers have found that people with higher levels of brown fat may have a reduced risk for obesity and diabetes.
