Stem Cell Innovations' C3A Human Liver Cell Line is Capable of Producing Biosimilar Serum Proteins for Follow-On Biologics

Blood clotting proteins factor 8 and 9 are first target indications

HOUSTON, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stem Cell Innovations' (Pink Sheets: SCLL) liver assist device program has additional application in the production of biosimilar and novel proteins. "Many of the commercially important therapeutic proteins are liver products and comprise a multibillion dollar market in the US," said James H. Kelly, CEO of SCLL. "Albumin, the clotting factors and alpha-1-antitrypsin are all produced naturally in the liver. Our C3A cell line produces each of these proteins at levels comparable to the natural liver cell. We already have the capability for large scale culture of the C3A cell line and expect that our PluriCell(TM) derived hepatocytes will have similar production capabilities. In addition, the C3A line provides an excellent host for the production of recombinant proteins due to the liver's massive synthetic capability."

In a sign that major pharmaceutical companies are becoming more aggressive about the biosimilar business, Merck is buying Insmed's portfolio of follow-on biologics for $130 million in cash. "We are exploring ways to fund our activities in this area through a spin out or an acquisition," said Kelly.
