About BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. ("BRT"), www.biorestorative.com, develops medical procedures using cell and tissue protocols, primarily involving adult stem cells, designed for patients to undergo minimally invasive cellular-based treatments. BRT is developing the following scientific initiatives:
- brtxDISC™ Program (Disc Implanted Stem Cells), a non-surgical treatment for bulging and herniated discs that addresses the gap between non-invasive and invasive back procedures. This research is still in the non-clinical, investigational stage.
- ThermoStem® Program, a treatment for metabolic disorders (diabetes, heart disease, etc.) and obesity using brown fat stem cells. Initial non-clinical 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 in the body.
- brtx-C Cosmetic Program, based on the development of a human cellular extract that, per initial in vitro studies, when applied to human skin cells, appears to cause an increase in the production of collagen and fibronectin, which are proteins that are essential to combating the aging of skin. Potential cosmetic uses are being explored with third parties.
The Company also offers plant stem cell-based facial creams and beauty products under the Stem Pearls® brand at www.stempearls.com.
