ABOUT SERNOVA CORP.
Sernova Corp is developing regenerative medicine therapeutic solutions using a medical device (Cell Pouch™) and immune protected therapeutic cells/tissues (i.e. human donor cells, corrected human cells, and stem cell-derived cells) to improve the treatment and quality of life of people with chronic metabolic diseases such as insulin-dependent diabetes, blood disorders including hemophilia, and other diseases treated through cellular production of proteins or hormones missing or in short supply within the body. For more information, please visit www.sernova.com.
ABOUT SERNOVA'S CELL POUCH SYSTEM
The Cell Pouch, as part of the Cell Pouch System, is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable macro-encapsulation device solution designed for the long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells. The device, upon implantation, is designed to incorporate with tissue, forming highly vascularized tissue chambers for the transplantation and function of therapeutic cells, which then release proteins, hormones, or other factors as required to treat disease. Sernova is currently conducting a Phase I/II study at the University of Chicago and has demonstrated encouraging early safety and efficacy indicators. The Cell Pouch, in combination with therapeutic cells/tissues, has been shown to provide long-term safety and efficacy in preclinical models of diabetes, hemophilia A and other indications supporting our therapeutics platform.
