Terumo Americas Holding, Inc., Agrees to Acquire Harvest Technologies Corporation, a Leader in the Development of Point-of-Care Cellular Therapy

o of vascular product solutions. We are committed to pursuing technologies that help to advance the medical industry and best meet the growing, specialized needs of the international physician and patient communities."

Harvest Technologies Corporation's SmartPReP 2 BMAC is considered a potentially breakthrough technology because it can process and concentrate the cellular components from autologous bone marrow, including adult stem cells, within 15 minutes, while some concentration techniques require hours, or in some cases days, to prepare.   The concentrate produced by this system has been documented to generate more total nucleated cells with enhanced viability that affect a desired outcome in animal models compared to concentrations obtained by using the most common laboratory methods described in successful clinical studies—while being significantly easier to implement and requiring half the amount of aspirate of bone marrow from the patient.

Harvest Technologies Corporation is focusing its initial commercialization efforts in Europe to support clinical research for the treatment of end-stage Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI), a result of peripheral artery disease, which often leads to lower-limb amputation and increased patient morbidity and mortality rates. Harvest is also conducting a 42-patient pilot, randomized, controlled, safety cardiac study of its BMAC system in three U.S. medical centers. The BMAC product is injected into the patient's heart muscle during bypass surgery to study its safety and effectiveness in this patient population. Previous studies using similar techniques have shown clinical promise.  

"Harvest Technologies Corporation is at the technological forefront of developing point-of-care systems that allow physicians to apply non-surgical approaches for difficult-to-treat diseases such as CLI," says Gary Tureski, President and CEO of Harvest Technologies Corporation.  "Terumo Co
