Phase III Clinical Trial Stem Cell Company Aims to Fast Forward Regenerative Solutions to Dreaded Lung Disease
Therapeutic Solutions International (TSOI) announced today the launching of a spin-off company, Breathe Biologics, Inc., to commercialize technologies in the area of COPD.
Therapeutic Solutions International has licensed to Breathe Biologics assets in the COPD space including the Investigational New Drug Application (IND) which has been granted FDA number 28508. With the IND, the FDA assigned the stem cell therapy the new name of “Allogeneic Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells, JadiCell; Intravenous injection.”
COPD is marked by lung inflammation and damage to alveoli — the tiny air sacs in the lungs responsible for gas exchange. The precursor cells that line the alveoli, called alveolar epithelial progenitor cells, cannot adequately respond to this damage by generating enough new alveoli. JadiCells are mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) — a type of adult stem cell found in several tissues that can give rise to many different cell types. MSCs possess anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and regenerative properties that have made them increasingly popular as potential therapeutic avenues for some conditions.
“The effects of JadiCell on numerous types of inflammatory disease are profound. In my personal experience, in patients with COVID-19 under Right to Try and Emergency Use IND, the results are nothing short of miraculous,” said Dr. James Veltmeyer, Chief Medical Officer of the Company. “To date regenerative medicine has not been truly applied to the problem of COPD, I am excited to assist Breathe Biologics in accelerating this novel technology to address a significant unmet medical need.”
“Through selecting opinion leaders in science and business and providing them with new and clinically applicable technologies I believe that we can extract significant value from our Innovation Factory at Therapeutic Solutions International,” said Timothy Dixon, President, and CEO of the Company. “I look forward to the rapid commercialization of the JadiCell for COPD which we believe will have a significant impact on patients.”
