Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (BMSN.OB)'s Regen BioPharma Initiates Pre-Clinical Study in Support of HemaXellerate™ Cell Therapy


11/19/2012 9:18:59 AM

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2012) - Bio-Matrix Scientific Group, Inc. (OTCQB: BMSN) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Regen BioPharma, Inc., has contracted Cascade Life Sciences, Inc. to research the safety and efficacy of Regen's HemaXellerate™ product using mice models for testing. Cascade Life Sciences is a privately-owned San Diego-based company with a platform of stem cell related technologies that are being advanced to serve the research community and the commercial development of stem cell-based therapeutics. Sophia Khaldoyanidi, M.D., Ph.D. is the principal investigator of the study.

The results of Regen's study will provide the safety profile data required for filing of an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for the product with the US Food and Drug Administration . Regen intends to file an IND Application in the fourth quarter of 2012 and conduct Phase I/II clinical trials during 2013 and 2014.

HemaXellerate™ offers the possibility of delivering a population of endothelial cells to restore blood production in patients with hematological conditions. "Unlike current approaches of administering pharmaceuticals," said J. Christopher Mizer, President of Regen BioPharma, "our strategy is to heal the bone marrow by administering cells that provide the optimum mix of growth factors to stimulate the bone marrow into producing blood cells naturally."

Regen has submitted two provisional patent applications covering the use of different sources of endothelial cells to heal damaged bone marrow. These applications cover: (1) placental cells (61/648898 - Acceleration 0f Hematopoietic Reconstitution by Placental Endothelial and Endothelial Progenitor Cells); and (2) fat cells (61/670791 - Treatment of Hematopoietic Disorders).
