Company Advances Towards Clinical Trial to Address Premature Ovarian Failure Patients
PHOENIX, Feb. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTC-CELZ) Creative Medical Technology Holdings announced today new data explaining mechanisms of action of its patented OvaStem® female infertility/ovarian failure treatment. OvaStem®, which is covered by issued patent #10,792,310, involves injection of stem cells into dysfunctional ovaries and has been demonstrated to induce fertility, as well as restore hormone levels.
The data, which are covered in a newly filed patent application, demonstrate that mesenchymal stem cell injection results in generation of T regulatory cells. These cells are a type of immune cell which the Company has previously patented for regeneration of lumbar discs (US Patent #10,842,815). Importantly, depletion of T regulatory cells resulted in negation of the beneficial effects of stem cells, whereas exogenous administration of T regulatory cells are capable of restoring ovarian function.
"Cellular therapy is making significant advances in the treatment of cancer, degenerative diseases, and autoimmunity." Said Dr. Amit Patel, Board Member of the Company and co-inventor of the patent. "We are pleased to discover this interesting interaction between mesenchymal stem cells and T regulatory cells in prevention of ovarian failure and restoration of function. By elucidating mechanisms, we feel we are making progress towards eventual filing with the FDA for initiation of clinical trials."
Although the menopause market is believed to be approximately $600 billion, the Company is focusing on the initial indication of premature ovarian failure. Premature ovarian failure occurs in woman under 40 who experience degeneration of ovaries from a variety of conditions. The Company has demonstrated efficacy of autologous (patient's own stem cells) and allogeneic (universal donor) in animal models of this condition.
"Despite having a wide variety of cellular products in development, there appears to be a common theme of interaction between mesenchymal stem cells and T regulatory cells." Said Timothy Warbington, President and CEO of the Company. "Today's discovery that T regulatory cells are effective in treatment of ovarian failure lends more scientific support to OvaStem®, which we hope will accelerate our path towards FDA clinical trials to treat this condition."
