Stemedica Issued U.S. Patent For Stem Cell Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy and Diabetic Optic Neuropathy
Date:12/20/2012

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

Stemedica Cell Technologies, Inc., a leading manufacturer of adult allogeneic stem cells and stem cell factors announced that the Company has been issued U.S. Patent #8,318,485 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. This broad-based patent covers the treatment of diabetic retinopathy and other degenerative diseases of the eye with the Company’s ischemic tolerant neural (itNSC) and mesenchymal (itMSC) stem cells.

In the United States, diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of new blindness in people 25-74 years of age. Approximately 700,000 persons in the United States have proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Each year another 65,000 are diagnosed with the condition. A recent study has estimated that, among people with diabetes aged 40 or older, 28.5% will develop diabetic retinopathy. Worldwide, it is estimated that 20 million people have proliferative diabetic retinopathy, with this number projected to increase to over 30 million by 2030.

Diabetic retinopathy begins as a vascular condition with microaneurysms in the vessels of the retina. These blood vessels become blocked, thereby depriving portions of the retina from blood supply. This trauma causes the retina to secrete vascularization signals that result in new, fragile, abnormal blood vessels being formed. The thin fragile walls of the new vessels leak fluid into the surrounding tissue, placing pressure on the nerves that become damaged in the process.

Nikolai Tankovich, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Medical Officer of Stemedica noted, “The treatment covered by this patent addresses the unique pathophysiology of diabetic retinopathy. Our ischemic tolerant mesenchymal stem cells are able to help restore the damaged endothelial lin
