Biotechs Investors Are Flocking To

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2019 / Below are a few biotechnology stocks seeing a growing amount of investor interest which is the precursor for long term bull runs.

One company who's on the verge of a major breakthrough, BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, is developing a therapy ''ThermoStem''using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue. The stock is still relatively unknown, however, with the global obesity treatment market expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2024 you can bet investors will be very interested in this company when they learn about it. Get a jumpstart on the crowd by researching BRTX today.

Today we are highlighting: BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), Cronos Group (CRON), BioTime (BTX), Eyenovia (EYEN) and Cara Therapeutics (CARA).

According to Grand View Research, the global obesity treatment market was valued at $3.9 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2024. According to the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, about 30% of the global population is either obese or overweight. These are just a couple making companies developing weight management solutions so valuable to investors.

One of the more novel approaches to fighting this obesity epidemic is being developed by BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX) (Market Cap: $8.308M, Share Price: $0.65), a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, developing a therapy ''ThermoStem'' using brown adipose (fat) derived stem cells to generate brown adipose tissue (''BAT''). BAT is intended to mimic naturally occurring brown adipose depots that regulate metabolic homeostasis in humans.

BRTX just received a Notice of Allowance on the company's fourth patent for their metabolic ThermoStem program. The company's patents span US, Australia and Japan.

Initial preclinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels. This is a very promising sign for the company.
