Beta-Cell Company Profile

14:51 EDT 19th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Beta-Cell is engaged in the development and commercialisation of innovative cell and drug therapies for the treatment of diabetes. The primary therapeutic focus of the company is on beta-cells, the highly specialized endocrine cells located in pancreatic islets and responsible for producing insulin. Beta-Cell has an advanced pre-clinical xeno-transplantation program based on its proprietary technologies to isolate and transplant fetal pig pancreatic endocrine (FPPE) cells. As demonstrated by the company, transplanted FPPE cells have the ability to restore normoglycemia in immune competent diabetic mice. Follow-up experiments with FPPE cells in large animal models are in progress. Concurrently, Beta-Cell is conducting research projects aimed at stimulating the proliferation, survival and differentiation of precursor / stem cells into functional beta-cells. In addition to its core programs in beta-cell therapy, the company has adopted a dynamic business strategy to maximize the commercial potential of its different technology platforms. The first product made available in this process is the access to high-quality FPPE cells produced in large amounts under GLP conditions. The company also provides a combination of services using in vitro test systems based on pancreatic islets and endocrine / exocrine cells from rat, pig and human sources to accelerate the identification and validation of novel diabetes drug candidates. The third product currently commercialised by Beta-Cell is a robust murine in vivo model to evaluate drug candidates for the induction of immune suppression or immune tolerance upon xeno-transplantation. Finally, Beta-Cell is active in the development of innovative multiplex detection tools for porcine pathogens.
