Regen BioPharma Peer-Reviewed Publication Provides Preclinical Support for HemaXellerate™ Bone Marrow Failure Product


1/25/2013 8:30:06 AM

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2013) - Regen BioPharma, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BMSN), announced today publication in a peer reviewed medical journal the scientific basis for its HemaXellerate™ bone marrow failure product. The manuscript is available at http://www.translational-medicine.com/content/pdf/1479-5876-10-231.pdf. The publication is an overview of the Investigational New Drug (IND) application that the company plans to file for initiating clinical trials.

HemaXellerate™ is a cell therapy product developed by Regen BioPharma that uses fat derived from the patient as a source of "healing cells" to stimulate bone marrow production of blood cells. These "healing cells" are termed "endothelial cells" and are a critical component of the blood production machinery of the bone marrow that is damaged in patients with bone marrow failure.

Intellectual property covering the HemaXellerate™ product include US Provisional Patent applications 61/648898 - Acceleration of Hematopoietic Reconstitution by Placental Endothelial and Endothelial Progenitor Cells and 61/670791 - Treatment of Hematopoietic Disorders filed by Regen, as well as an option to exclusively license issued US Patent #6,821,513.

Currently, the only way to stimulate production of blood from bone marrow is through administration of growth factors. The overall market for growth factors is $18 billion per year. Unfortunately, growth factors require repeated administration, are expensive, and in many patients are ineffective.

"Treatments available today for patients with insufficient bone marrow function are a 'band-aid' solution that require repeated administration and do not address the underlying cause of bone marrow failure," said David Koos, Chairman and CEO of Bio-Matrix, and a co-author of the publication. "We believe that HemaXellerate™ offers the possibility to actually heal damage that has occurred to the bone marrow and thus more naturally treat the core of cause of bone marrow inactivity."

The publication contained data obtained from independent laboratories supporting the use of HemaXellerate™ as an alternative to growth factor therapy and was a co-authored by stem cell pioneers Dr. Amit Patel from University of Utah, and Dr. Michael Murphy from Indiana University. Additionally, the paper was co-authored by companies working in the field of stem cells including Cook Biotechnology and Medistem, Inc.

Regen BioPharma's first indication of HemaXellerate™ will be patients with aplastic anemia who are drug resistant and not eligible for bone marrow transplantation. Demonstration of efficacy in this patient population is anticipated to lead the way for entry into the $18 billion hematopoietic growth factor market which includes conditions such as anemia, thrombocytopenia, and chemotherapy associated leukopenia.
