Laser-type device to be coupled with Stem Cell Therapy.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2009 -- Entest Biomedical, Inc. (OTCBB: ENTB) announced that it has initiated discussions with a manufacturer of lasers regarding the development of a proprietary laser device which shall be owned by Entest and used in conjunction with several stem cell therapies currently being developed by Entest. These therapies are aimed at increasing efficacy in treating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). A spokesman for Entest stated that this particular manufacturer was approached due to their success in commercializing medical devices in the North American market.
“Biotechnology R&D companies like Entest frequently have intellectual property tied to medical devices under development. Entest’s planned usage of laser-type devices in treating COPD requires the adaptation of current laser technology into a device that supports the Company’s Stem Cell / Photoceutical therapy.” said David Koos, Chairman and CEO of Entest. “Companies such as PhotoThera in Carlsbad, California, have successfully used this approach in developing their laser-based NeurotheraÒ technology for treating ischemic stroke patients (currently in Phase III clinical trials).”
Entest’s patent-pending approach revolves around the use of the patient’s own stem cells in combination with specific laser wavelengths to repair damaged lung tissue of patients with COPD.
Ernest’s goal is the generation of schematics, code, and intellectual property pertaining to the new device which will serve as the basis for regulatory filings and FDA development of the Entest “regenerative photoceutical” approach to COPD.
