Universal Stem Cell Product Could Overcome Key Challenges in Donor Organ Transplants

also broaden the impact of transplantation medicine, helping many more patients and providing a better quality of life.”

“This is an interesting study demonstrating the potential of multipotent adult progenitor cells to serve as a universal cell product,” said Anthony Atala, MD, Editor of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine and director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. “Being able to reduce the level of immunosuppressant drugs post-transplant would have significant benefits to patients.”

The study team is now recruiting for a Phase I clinical trial to assess the safety profile of MAPC infusion in liver transplant recipients. Athersys is also conducting clinical trials in several other areas using MultiStem®, the clinical grade product being developed that utilizes the MAPC technology. The company also has a partnership with Pfizer to treat inflammatory bowel disease, which is the subject of an ongoing international Phase 2 clinical trial, and also has an ongoing Phase 2 clinical trial for treating patients that have suffered an ischemic stroke.
