Healthcare Stocks Leading the Sector

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / February 25, 2019 / The cost of healthcare has been outpacing inflation. According to Investor's Business Daily, the U.S. soon will ''spend nearly 20% of its gross domestic product on health care.'' Investors looking to cash in on this bullish signal could start by researching the following companies.

A company in the sector that has not had news recently but according to their website ''has an open IND (Investigational New Drug) and has agreed with the FDA on a Phase 2 trial protocol that is targeted to start at the end of Q2 of 2019'', BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), has grabbed our attention. The Company is developing therapies for the Global Chronic Low Back Pain Market (estimated of US$ 9.19 billion by 2025) and the Global Obesity Treatment Market ($15.6 billion by 2025.) *according to Grand View Research

Today we are highlighting: BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX), Achieve Life Sciences, Inc. (ACHV), Zosano Pharma Corporation (ZSAN), Pfizer Inc. (PFE).

BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. (BRTX) (Market Cap: $9.463M, Share Price: $0.7168)
, a life sciences company focused on stem cell-based therapies, is working on two major therapies. Their back-pain solution, BRTX-100, has shown positive results in both preclinical animal and human studies as a non-opioid chronic lower back pain treatment.

BRTX's obesity treatment ''ThermoStem'' uses 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.
