Presentation Title: Small Mobile Stem (SMS) Cells: A New Single Agent, Multitargeted Approach To Tissue Regeneration
- Small Mobile Stem (SMS) cells are adult stem cells derived from human peripheral blood that demonstrate extensive proliferation, motility, and resilience.
- Enables allogenic cell therapy based upon favorable immunogenicity and meaningful interaction with cells key to tissue regeneration.
- Animal preclinical data confirm lung regeneration and the formation of blood vessels. IND Application in process for COPD.
