International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.265, off by 1.85%, on 40,920 volume with 20 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 441,948, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.65.
International Stem Cell Corp. announced having raised $1M today via multiple long-standing investors through a private placement on the same terms as the last such placement with management (Jan 22). To have key investors strengthen their positions like this really bolsters confidence at ISCO as they set out to apply capital raised in both efforts to accelerating their therapeutic programs towards clinical stage, building upon the recently announced, highly promising pre-clinical data for both Parkinson's and Liver disease.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

This certification is a stand-alone standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization that provides harmonized quality management systems requirements for manufacturers of medical devices. Cardium’s compliance with ISO 13485 represents an important next step forward to compliance with European regulatory requirements.
“This ISO certification represents a major achievement and milestone for Cardium and moves us forward in our CE Mark Certification application for authorization to market and sell Excellagen in the European Union, which currently consists of 27 member countries,” stated Christopher J. Reinhard, Chairman and CEO of Cardium Therapeutics.
Cardium also reported today that it has completed its submission of required documentation including the technical file and design dossier of its CE mark filing for review by BSI. Additionally, Angel Biomedical’s operations has been acquired by a United Kingdom-based private equity company. Angel Biomedical is responsible for a segment of Excellagen’s collagen manufacturing process. It is expected that the new entity, Collbio Ltd., will continue manufacturing of new batches required for their ISO re-certification, which is necessary for final certification of Cardium’s CE mark application, in the second quarter 2013. Cardium previously established a supply of manufactured bulk collagen in the United States and does not anticipate any disruption in the Excellagen supply chain.
