Derma Sciences to Enter Phase II Development of Wound Healing Product That May Use Body's Own Naturally Occurring Stem Cells
Date:1/24/2008

, is the kind of product the medical industry is looking for."

Derma Sciences obtained the rights to DSC127 via license with the University of Southern California, and has signed a clinical services agreement with U.S. Biotest. The scope of the agreement covers pre-study services, study management, clinical operations, data management and medical writing.

Early testing of DSC127 demonstrated that its healing powers may work by promoting the recruitment of mesenchymal stem cells to sites of tissue injury. Mesenchymal stem cells are integral to the creation of several tissue types including skin, beginning in the fetal stages of development.

DSC127 is a novel angiotensin analog that was shown in various animal models to promote healing and reduce scar formation. As a person ages and gets beyond the age of rapid growth, the number of his or her mesenchymal stem cells greatly diminishes. However, administration of DSC127 at the site of tissue injury may promote the recruitment of mesenchymal stem cells in numbers that support the rapid healing of tissue. Application of DSC127 in various animal models has resulted in the increased pace of angiogenesis, as well as increased keratinocyte and extracellular matrix production, all key drivers for dermal repair.

U.S. Biotest, founded by Drs. Gere diZerega and Kathleen Rodgers, maintains an expertise in the licensed compound and has extensive capability in the development of devices and pharmaceutical agents. Drs. diZerega and Rodgers have previously been involved in the development of 4 medical products that have received FDA approval and 7 medical products that are marketed worldwide. Regarding DSC127, they have directed all pre-clinical work, including compound development, manufacturing validation, toxicology studies, successful National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant submissions, acquisition of an Investigational New Drug (IND), and completion of a Phase I clinical trial.
