Cellular Dynamics International In-Licenses Key Patent Portfolio for Using Stem Cell-Derived Cells in Drug Testing
Date:7/15/2009

w">Indiana University Research & Technology Corporation said, "As a leader in the pluripotent stem cell field, CDI is a great licensing partner for IUPUI. We are confident CDI will run with this technology, exploiting it to its fullest potential."

The license enables CDI to optimize the process of developing and purifying different cell types created from human pluripotent stem cells, including the company's first commercially available product line, human cardiomyocytes. Under the licensed technology, pluripotent stem cells are engineered to include a selectable "marker." As the stem cells begin to differentiate into different terminal cell types (e.g. heart, blood, neural cells, etc.), the marker allows researchers to identify and select a particular cell type (e.g. heart cells) and produce a highly purified and functional cell population.

The license also covers the use of cardiomyocytes purified through this technology for drug testing. While cardiomyocytes are the company's entree into the market, the company has programs in place for developing multiple cell types, and the Field patents enable the company to develop them into highly purified populations. CDI is using the Field technology in conjunction with the patents it has licensed from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), UW-Madison's tech-transfer vehicle, to create a pipeline that mass produces cells for large-scale drug screening campaigns at pharmaceutical companies and for regenerative medicine applications.

In addition the license, which includes patents pending at the European Patent Office, also allows CDI to sublicense to other companies and institutions.
