International Stemcell

isco-logo-whitespace
International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCBB:ISCO) develops a powerful new stem cell technology called “parthenogenesis” that promises to significantly advance the field of regenerative medicine by addressing the significant problem of immune-rejection. Parthenogenesis utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create “parthenogenetic” stem cells (hpSC) that can be “immune-matched” to millions of persons of differing sexes and racial backgrounds. A relatively small number of hpSC lines could provide sufficient immune-matched cells to cover large parts of the world’s population. ISCO plans to create a bank of these valuable hpSC lines (UniStemCell™) to serve all populations across the world.

Profile Description

Parthenogenetic (from the Greek parthenos meaning “virgin” and genesis meaning “birth”) activation utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSC) that can be immune-matched to millions of people. As a result, a relatively small number of hpSC lines could provide enough immune-matched cells to cover a large percentage of the world’s population.

ISCO’s scientists are focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the nervous system, joints and liver where cell therapy has been proven clinically effective but is limited by the availability of safe immune-matched human cells.
