(NYSE American: LCTX) (TASE: LCTX) has been awarded a new USD 670,621 Small Business Innovation Research grant to advance its Vision Restoration Program, the company's proprietary and innovative program generating 3-dimensional human retinal tissue derived from pluripotent cells
, the company said.
fall into two groups, embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells.
In addition, BioTime will present preclinical results from its Vision Restoration Program, the Company's proprietary program based on the ability to generate 3-dimensional human retinal tissue derived from pluripotent cells
The process of assigning cells to placenta or baby is important because that is when pluripotent cells
The data showed that complete human 3-dimensional retinal tissue derived from BioTime's human pluripotent cells
Its clinical programs are based on two platform technologies: pluripotent cells
and cell/drug delivery.
"Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), including embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent cells
(iPSCs) are considered promising approaches to study diabetes.
Newcells' team can source tissues from patients, generate iPSC from these, and convert the pluripotent cells
into the particular cell types required to model the disease.
The ensuing contributions discuss a number of specific cell types, including ocular surface cells, corneal stromal keratocytes, endothelial cells, crystalline lens cells, and limbal cells, as well as the dynamics and induction of pluripotent cells
, potential cell therapies, and gene therapy.
"The aim of carrying out these studies is to obtain pluripotent cells
from a cloned embryo.
