BioMS Medical Corp. Company Profile

00:28 EDT 19th March 2019 | BioPortfolio

BioMS Medical has obtained an exclusive worldwide license to a proprietary technology developed at the MS Patient Care and Research Clinic at the University of Alberta for the treatment of MS. The technology, MBP8298, is based on over 26 years of research and is a synthetic myelin basic protein peptide comprised of 17 amino acids which is intravenously injected into MS patients as a therapeutic treatment. BioMS Medical is currently conducting a pivotal Phase II/III human clinical trial of MBP8298 in patients with Secondary Progressive MS. Patient enrollment has began in Canada and Europe. The Company’s second technology, HYC750, involves a method for mobilizing hematopoetic cells in humans. BioMS has obtained an exclusive worldwide license to HYC750 from the University of Alberta. HYC750 is based on hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring and vital component in the connective tissue of humans. Hyaluronic acid is currently used, in various forms, in a large number of commercially available products for applications such as ophthalmologic surgery, rheumatoid arthritis treatment, joint mobilization, wound healing and as a carrier matrix for cells and drugs. In those applications, hyaluronic acid has been shown to be very safe. HYC750 has a number of potential uses, however, the current focus of the Company is on its use as a treatment for the side effects of chemotherapy. BioMS has also entered into an agreement with the University of Alberta, Dr. Leonard I. Wiebe, Dr. James Diakur and BioCyDex Inc. ("BioCyDex"). BioCyDex has exclusive worldwide licenses from the University of Alberta for two technologies. One technology relates to the delivery of anti-viral and chemotherapy drugs into cells for the purpose of improving the effectiveness of those drugs. The other technology relates to the imaging of genes that have been delivered into cells as part of gene therapy treatment. Both technologies are at an early stage of development. BioMS Medical is a publicly traded company on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX: MS).
