PHOENIX, Dec. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTC-CELZ) Creative Medical Technology Holdings Inc. announced today novel data and patent filing No. 63131261 describing the ability of ImmCelz® to reverse liver failure in the carbon tetrachloride preclinical model of hepatocyte necrosis.
These findings are the basis for a patent filing covering various means of generating the ImmCelz® product in a hepatoprotective specific manner. The Company has previously reported that ImmCelz® is capable of treating animal models of stroke,1 as well as inducing "immunological tolerance" in a model of autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis.2
The work is an extension of previously published findings of Dr. Thomas E. Ichim, in which mesenchymal stem cells were capable of inhibiting progression of liver failure.3
"I am proud of the work the team at Creative Medical Technologies is conducting in advancing the concept of immunologically-mediated regeneration," said Dr. Ichim, Co-inventor of the patent. "ImmCelz® is an advancement on our previous liver failure work due to the fact that we have shown transfer of regenerative activity from the stem cell to the immune cell. Immune cells possess ability to home to injured tissues faster than stem cells due to their smaller size. Additionally, immune cells possess immunological memory, which we believe may be applied to the concept of regeneration."
"While stem cell therapeutics are recognized as the future of medicine, I believe it is important to realize that many activities of stem cells are mediated by changes to the immune system," said Dr. Amit Patel, Board Member of the Company and Co-Inventor of the Patent Application. "ImmCelz® represents a fundamental advancement in regenerative medicine in that instead of administering stem cells in the body to induce immune modulation, we actually optimize the immune modulation in the laboratory before injecting immune cells into the patient."
Being at the forefront in identifying novel regenerative treatment options, the Company possesses numerous issued patents in the area of cellular therapy, including patent no. 10,842,815 covering use of T regulatory cells for spinal disc regeneration, patent no. 9,598,673 covering stem cell therapy for disc regeneration, patent no. 10,792,310 covering regeneration of ovaries using endothelial progenitor cells and mesenchymal stem cells, patent no. 8,372,797 covering use of stem cells for erectile dysfunction, and patent no. 7,569,385 licensed from the University of California covering a novel stem cell type.
"Liver failure represents a significant unmet medical need and I am extremely excited that ImmCelz® has the potential to help the numerous patients on the liver transplant waiting list who currently have no other option.
With growing validation and acceptance of such technologies, the company intends to continue to broaden its intellectual property portfolio by compiling research data and filing patents, in order to record early filing dates and increase the likelihood of our receiving patent issue.
We continue to welcome opportunities with collaborators and Key Opinion Leaders as we are dedicated to accelerating the further development of our technology."
