A monoclonal antibody that depletes blood stem cells and enables chemotherapy free transplants

This trial proposes to replace SCID patients’ dysfunctional immune cells with healthy ones using a safer form of bone marrow transplant (BMT). Current BMT procedures must use toxic chemotherapy to make space in the bone marrow for the healthy transplanted stem cells to engraft. The Stanford team will instead test a safe, non-toxic protein called […]

Retinal progenitor cells for treatment of retinitis pigmentosa

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a severe form of blindness that runs in families with an incidence of 1:4000. A team at UC Irvine, is using cells called retinal progenitor cells to repair the damage caused by this vision destroying disease. The cells are injected into the back of the eye and it’s hoped they will […]

Preclinical and clinical testing of a stem cell-based combination product for insulin-dependent diabetes

ViaCyte is developing cell therapies to replace lost pancreatic beta cells for people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The therapies are derived from human embryonic stem cells, which are partially matured into becoming pancreatic tissues (the type destroyed in T1D). The cells are inserted into a small pouch that is transplanted under the patient’s skin. The […]

A Translating Center designed to expedite the development and delivery of high quality stem cell therapies to patients

A successful partnership, resulting in the creation of a Translating Center recognized as the leader in providing end-to-end preclinical development services (preclinical research, CMC, regulatory) to accelerate the availability of stem cell treatments to patients with unmet medical needs. The proposed Translating Center will benefit the lives of patients in CA with serious unmet medical […]

Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Neural Stem Cells for Severe Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Human embryonic stem cell-derived neural stem cells. Indication Spinal cord injury Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed neural stem cell therapy will be transplanted into a spinal cord injury site, providing cell replacement and a new neuronal relay across the injury site in an effort to promote significant functional improvement. Unmet Medical Need […]

A 1XX-enhanced and fully non-viral BCMA CAR T cell therapy for Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma (UCCT-BCMA-1)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Cryopreserved autologous TRAC locus 1XX BCMA-CAR T cells Indication Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma Therapeutic Mechanism Engineered T cells target and kill BCMA+ Myeloma cells Unmet Medical Need No durable treatments are available for RRMM and only ~30% of patients can access current BCMA CAR therapies. This product can improve product […]

Pre-Clinical To Clinical Gene Therapy Development For CMT4J

Therapeutic Candidate or Device AAV9 Gene Therapy For An Ultra-Rare Disease Called CMT4J Indication CMT4J or the FIG4 Gene Therapeutic Mechanism Gene Therapy through an Intrathecal One-Time Injection Unmet Medical Need CMT4J is an ultra-rare disorder that presently lacks any available treatment options and represents an underserved orphan population. Project Objective Successful Filing of an […]

Manufacturing of AS-202, an Antisense oligonucleotides for a Phase 1/2 Clinical Trial for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Therapeutic Candidate or Device AS-202, an antisense oligonucleotide Indication Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Therapeutic Mechanism AS-202 targets PIKFYVE, a lipid kinase. By inhibiting PIKFYVE activity, it induces exosomal secretion, which robustly clears misfolded proteins including C9ORF72 dipeptide repeat proteins (DPRs), TDP-43 and tau from neurons. Unmet Medical Need To date, therapeutic options for ALS have been […]

Treatment of the TMJ disc complex

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Tissue implant engineered using expanded, allogeneic chondroprogenitor cells Indication Defects of the temporomandibular joint disc complex Therapeutic Mechanism Though the mechanism has not been established, Hyaleon®️ may initially act as a load bearing structure that fills defects of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc complex. The implant is slowly remodeled allowing for […]

Cancer Stem Cell Interception with Rebecsinib: A First-in-Class ADAR1 Inhibitor

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Rebecsinib is a novel small molecule inhibitor of ADAR1 splicing that selectively eradicates therapy-resistant cancer stem cells in blood cancers. Indication The target indication is relapsed/refractory secondary acute myeloid leukemia (sAML), or int-2 or high-risk myelofibrosis (MF). Therapeutic Mechanism Rebecsinib therapy for patients with relapsed/refractory sAML, or int-2 or HR MF […]
