Multipotent Stem Cell Proteins Support Soft Tissue Regeneration

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

Histogen, Inc., a regenerative medicine company developing solutions based on the products of cells grown under simulated embryonic conditions, announced that Dr. Michael Zimber will give a podium presentation entitled “Human Multipotent Stem Cell Proteins Support Soft Tissue Regeneration” today at the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) Americas Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA.

Through its proprietary technology process that simulates the conditions of the embryonic environment, Histogen has developed a human extracellular matrix (hECM) material composed of stem cell-associated proteins including SPARC, decorin, collagens I,III,IV, V, fibronectin, fibrillin, laminins, and hyaluronic acid. The hECM’s distinctive composition of growth factors and other proteins are known to stimulate stem cells in the body, regenerate tissues, and promote scarless healing.

Histogen sought to examine whether the hECM may promote scarless healing in full thickness wounds, similar to that seen in fetal healing, using a variety of forms of the material, including hollow spheres to maximize void fill volume. In preclinical studies, all hECM-treated wounds healed rapidly with minimum contractions, and the hECM microspheres had a statistically significant improvement in healing as compared to the controls (p<0.05) and produced a 25% thicker dermis. In addition, hECM applied topically after microneedling resulted in up to a 3X dermal thickening.

“We are very pleased that our propriety materials produced by hypoxia-induced human multipotent stem cells have shown significant healing results in both soft and hard tissues,” said Dr. Gail Naughton, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Histogen. “These results open new therapeutic markets, show tremendous potential for our material in cutaneous wound care and orthopedics, as well as support the expansion of our aesthetic pipeline to include soft tissue fillers.”

In addition to "Human Multipotent Stem Cell Proteins Support Soft Tissue Regeneration,” Dr. Zimber will also be presenting “Human Multipotent Stem Cell Proteins Support Osteogenesis In Vitro” during the TERMIS AM Annual Meeting taking place November 10-13, 2013 in Atlanta. Following the event, these presentations will be available upon request.

About Histogen
Histogen is a regenerative medicine company developing solutions based upon the products of cells grown under proprietary conditions that mimic the embryonic environment, including low oxygen and suspension. Through this unique technology process, newborn cells are encouraged to naturally produce the vital proteins and growth factors from which the Company has developed its rich product portfolio. Histogen's lead product, Hair Stimulating Complex (HSC) has shown success in two Company-sponsored clinical trials as an injectable treatment for alopecia. In addition, the human multipotent cell conditioned media produced through Histogen's process can be found in skincare products including ReGenica, which is distributed by Suneva Medical in partnership with Obagi Medical Products.
