Biotechnology companies have broken many medical barriers in the past 40 years, harnessing the technological revolution to bring innovative solutions to medical problems.
One flourishing field in biotech is regenerative medicine, a market worth $16.9 billion in 2021. Regenerative medicine harnesses the body’s amazing ability to heal itself, using cutting-edge technology to apply this regenerative power to prompt the body to recover from diseases previously uncured.a
An estimated one-third of Americans would benefit from regenerative therapeutic cures. There are wide applications for such regenerative therapy, with categories including stem cell research, gene therapy and tissue engineering. Some difficulties for regenerative medicine companies include arduous Food and Drug Administration (FDA) trial processes and the need for vertical integration of their product development to cut expenses.
Biotech companies involved in regenerative medicine include Mesoblast Ltd. (NASDAQ: MESO), Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: BCLI), Lineage Cell Therapeutics (NYSE: LCTX) and BioRestorative Therapies Inc. (NASDAQ: BRTX).
Companies Working In The Regenerative Medicine Industry
Here is a look at some companies looking to be leaders in the regenerative therapy field:
Mesoblast Ltd. develops novel treatments for back pain and various cardiovascular conditions. This Australia-based company focuses primarily on cell therapy solutions, with a mesenchymal lineage stem cell (MSC) technology platform. This develops MSCs, highly multipotent cells taken from healthy bone marrow, and develops treatments for tissue damage, heart disease and more.
Lineage Cell Therapeutics is a company pioneering cell-based therapies to treat serious diseases, including ocular disorders and cancer. It uses its proprietary cell-therapy platform to develop and manufacture self-renewing stem cells into differentiated cells, which can be transplanted to treat problems including cancer or degenerative diseases.
Brainstorm Therapeutics focuses on cell therapies for neurodegenerative diseases. Its autologous cellular therapeutics platform NurOwn® treats the disease by differentiating the patient’s healthy MSCs. Brainstorm’s work may eventually provide treatments for such neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer’s.
This Company Has Its Own Cell Manufacturing Facility
BioRestorative Therapies, which primarily develops products using highly therapeutic adult stem cells, focuses on disc/spine disease and metabolic disorders. BioRestorative’s brtxDisc program is developing a treatment for the millions of Americans suffering from either chronic or acute back pain. Its product BRTX-100, which uses autologous stem cells to treat degenerative spinal discs, is in a Phase Two FDA trial.
BioRestorative is also tackling obesity, which currently affects over 40% of Americans. It is developing the product ThermoStemⓇ, which harnesses the body’s natural production of healthy brown fat cells to target patient obesity and other metabolic issues associated with obesity.
BioRestorative believes that its treatments will also help condition the body for better future regeneration and responses to medical treatment. A significant advantage for the company is the vertical integration of development and production it has through its clinical-grade cell therapy manufacturing facility. This facility, completed in April, gives BioRestorative control and oversight in the cell manufacturing process, apart from the flexibility to make its own decisions and to correct quality issues in real-time. Owning the facility mitigates the expense normally associated with these activities, which is a great benefit when conducting FDA trials.
