International Stem Cell Corporation’s Lifeline Cell Technology Subsidiary Expands Sales and Distribution While Enhancing Manufacturing Capability and Clinical Product Opportunities

§ July 3rd, 2011 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on International Stem Cell Corporation’s Lifeline Cell Technology Subsidiary Expands Sales and Distribution While Enhancing Manufacturing Capability and Clinical Product Opportunities

International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCBB:ISCO) (http://www.intlstemcell.com), the first company to perfect a method of creating human "parthenogenetic" stem cells derived from unfertilized human eggs, reports that its wholly owned subsidiary, Lifeline Cell Technology (Lifeline), grew 2011 first quarter product sales by 35% and gained well over 200 new customers compared with the prior year through new product introductions and the development of worldwide distribution channels. Lifeline also made significant progress in its strategy to expand its product applications into manufacturing human tissues and cells for clinical use. Lifeline Cell Technology develops, manufactures and markets the Lifeline® brand of cell culture products used by researchers to grow human cells for basic and pre-clinical research. Lifeline also fulfills an important role in parent ISCO's long-term strategy to be a leading developer and manufacturer of human cells and human-cell-based products for clinical applications.


Lifeline's chief executive officer, Jeffrey Janus, stated, "Our product sales growth was largely due to the development and launch of more than 30 new products in 2010, including products that allow researchers to study human stem cells. Lifeline also opened new distribution channels in Japan, India, Taiwan, South Korea and Singapore and has achieved significant sales in those new markets. Importantly, we have also moved closer to validating the feasibility of ISCO's strategic plan as our proprietary FibroLife® media is being used to cultivate tissue-engineered blood vessels for Cytograft Tissue Engineering in Novato, California. Cytograft's vessels are expected to be used as coronary grafts for coronary bypass procedures, as peripheral grafts to prevent lower limb amputations and as living tissue shunts for hemodialysis patients."


Cytograft's technology was recently featured at the American Heart Association's conference of emerging technology and can be viewed on the AHA's "Emerging Science Series Webinar" at scientificsessions.org/emergingscience.


Cytograft's chief executive officer, Todd McAllister, Ph.D., said, "Cytograft's clinical programs are going forward in Phase III trials and we are excited to be working with Lifeline as one of our key media developers and suppliers as we transition to commercialization and as we develop our next generation platform."


In anticipation of producing clinical grade products, Lifeline recently moved into new laboratory facilities that are capable of cGMP level manufacturing. Said Janus, "Lifeline Cell Technology provides ISCO the capacity to develop and manufacture human cell-based products for growing field of regenerative medicine, while at the same time generating revenue in the research market. The Cytograft opportunity is but one example of many potential clinical applications for Lifeline's products."

International Stem Cell Corporation Discovers Method to Produce Uncontaminated Liver Cells: New Platform to Produce Various Cell Types Free From Undifferentiated, Potentially Tumorigenic, Cells

§ June 26th, 2011 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on International Stem Cell Corporation Discovers Method to Produce Uncontaminated Liver Cells: New Platform to Produce Various Cell Types Free From Undifferentiated, Potentially Tumorigenic, Cells

International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCBB:ISCOE) announces the discovery of a novel, patent-pending technology to produce unlimited numbers of liver cells (hepatocytes) that are free of contamination with potentially dangerous undifferentiated cells. The technology is based on the natural, physiological properties of the cellular environment, and does not require any additional purification of the final product. The starting materials for the production are pluripotent stem cells, either ISCO's proprietary human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) or human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).


The technology is described in a new article that will appear in Cell Transplantation, the Regenerative Medicine Journal (currently the article is available only in electronic form). The published data also reinforce that hpSCs can provide the cellular material necessary for the implementation of cell-based therapies.


Marie Csete, M.D., Ph.D., co-author of the paper, said, "Derivation of differentiated cell products that are not contaminated with undifferentiated cells solves a major technical roadblock in the development of all pluripotent stem cell-based therapies because undifferentiated stem cells with tumorigenic potential can persist through long differentiation protocols. Therefore methods to generate pure differentiated cells for transplantation are critical for creating successful cell therapies. Furthermore, the elegant technology developed by ISCO scientists to enforce critical steps in differentiation illustrates the power and importance of basic engineering tools in stem cell biology."


Nikolay Turovets, Ph.D., Director of Research and Therapeutic Development at ISCO and co-author of the paper stated, "The technology discovered by our research team is based on reproducing features of the normal human embryonic microenvironment. The method uses a differentiation device that incorporates a three-dimensional extracellular matrix, combined with a porous membrane. Treatment of undifferentiated cells above the membrane using differentiation-directed proteins results in permitting the desired cells to migrate through the membrane into the matrix, where they further differentiate into functional hepatocytes."


Jeffrey Fair, M.D., liver transplant surgeon and Director of Translational Research for the Cedars-Sinai Comprehensive Transplant Center and Department of Surgery in Los Angeles, and co-author of the paper said, "Derivatives of HLA-homozygous hpSCs are likely to be significantly less susceptible to immune rejection after transplantation, thus offering major advantages over other pluripotent cell sources of hepatocytes. In the paper, we demonstrated that hepatocytes derived from hpSCs in this differentiation system demonstrate activities that are missing in a number of metabolic liver diseases, such as expression of AAT and OTC genes. Thus, personalized HLA-matching, as well as presence of the required activities make the pure hepatocyte population derived from hpSCs an attractive development candidate for cell therapy of metabolic liver diseases, urea cycle disorders, AAT-deficiency or other liver diseases in which a single hepatocyte product can ameliorate disease."


The approach used to derive a pure hepatocyte population is a technology platform that may allow derivation of various cell populations from different sources.


Andrey Semechkin, Ph.D., President and CEO of ISCO, and co-author of the paper stated, "We have discovered technology that has a number of features and advantages, and our plans are to expand the applications of this platform to develop new products. This system is universal and does not depend of the particularities of cell lines. As such it could be successfully used with hpSCs, hESCs and, we believe, with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs). Because isolation of undifferentiated cells happens at the first step of the differentiation procedure, the technology could be used to isolate other cell types, for example pancreatic or heart cells. Also, because technology is based on a natural process, cell separation is accomplished without any cell damage, in contrast to physical purification methods such as FACS, or magnetic sorting."


An electronic pre-copy-edited version of the paper entitled "Derivation of high-purity definitive endoderm from human parthenogenetic stem cells using an in vitro analog of the primitive streak" is available at: http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/cog/ct/pre-prints/ct0284agapova.


A color version of the paper will be available when the print publication is issued. Prior to print publication, color figures can be obtained upon request from Nikolay Turovets, PhD:nturovets@intlstemcell.com.
