OmegaGenesis Unveils Novel Nanotechnology Platform With Broad Biomedical Applications
Date:12/15/2008

New Company Founded on Mayo Clinic Discoveries is Developing Therapies for Wounds, Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Hair Growth Using Nano-Materials with Angiogenic Properties

GILROY, Calif., Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- OmegaGenesis today unveiled the company's novel technology platform which employs nano-materials made of rare earth elements with angiogenic properties. Nanorod therapies for wound healing, diabetic foot ulcers and hair growth are being developed by the company, with plans to expand into the therapeutic areas of ischemic heart damage and orthopedics in the future.

OmegaGenesis has developed novel methods to safely generate large-scale quantities of the nano-scale europium hydroxide rods, which were first developed at the Mayo Clinic and shown to promote angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. The company has established non-toxicity of the europium hydroxide nanorods in lab testing for human applications and pre-clinical studies for use of the nanorods in the treatment of wound healing, diabetic foot ulcers and hair growth are underway. Clinical trials are anticipated to commence in the second half of 2009.

"The angiogenic properties of the europium hydroxide nanorods open up a diverse set of biomedical applications and treatment classes that OmegaGenesis is pursuing," said Oostur Raza, CEO and co-founder. "We are excited to be using nano-scale materials for applications in medicine as it offers a number of advantages over conventional therapies. Nano-materials will enable doctors to treat disease at a sub-cellular level in a less invasive manner than treating disease at the organ or systemic level."

While OmegaGenesis is initially focusing its efforts on developing therapies based on angiogenesis, the company plans to eventually pursue applications in diagnostics and medical imaging, as well as anti-angiogenic therapies for inhibition of tumor growth in cancer.<
