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 $0.269, up 3.46%, on 167,192 volume with 35 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 198,870, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.55.
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.

BG Medicine has received news that its partner Abbott, a global leader in in vitro diagnostics, has obtained a CE Mark for the Galectin-3 assay run on the ARCHITECT immunochemistry platform.
Pending country registration, this launch of the ARCHITECT Galectin-3 test under the CE Mark will make galectin-3 testing further available in several European countries – another significant step in BG Medicine’s commercial strategy. The progress made by Abbott will expand the use of galectin-3 testing in heart failure patients and strengthen BG Medicine’s ability to drive the growth of galectin-3 testing throughout the world. BG Medicine is currently partnering with four diagnostic instrument manufacturers in order to commercialize automated versions of the BGM Galectin-3 test.
Galectin-3 is a strong indicator of prognosis and readmission risk in heart failure patients. The availability of a rapid turnaround galectin-3 result would mean heart failure patients who are at high risk of adverse events can be identified more readily. Considering the rise in heart failure, it is important for new tools to be introduced that will aid fast clinical decision making processes and supply options for exploring new interventions.
In addition to Abbott, BG Medicine is also partnering with Alere, bioMérieux SA, and Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics to provide automated versions of its galectin-3 test to key market segments. bioMérieux SA launched the test earlier this year in Europe and certain other territories that recognize the CE Mark.
Galectin-3 testing has been implicated in various biological processes that are important in the development and progression of heart failure. Elevated levels of galectin-3 are associated with a more aggressive form of heart failure – potentially making the identification of high-risk patients using galectin-3 testing an important aspect of patient care. This testing may be useful in helping physicians identify those patients who are at a higher risk of death or hospitalization, including 30-day readmission.

Pluristem Therapeutics is a leading developer of placenta-based cell therapies. The company’s patented PLX (PLacental eXpanded) cells are a drug delivery platform that releases a cocktail of therapeutic proteins in response to a host of local and systemic inflammatory and ishemic diseases. The cells are grown using the company’s proprietary 3D micro-environmental technology.
The company today announced that following favorable pre-clinical studies, biotechnology firm United Therapeutics Corp. received approval to perform a human Phase 1 study in Australia using Pluristem’s PLX-PAD cells in patients that have been diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). This disease is characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs and leads to a greater workload for the right side of the heart.
United Therapeutics plans to conduct a single center, open-label, dose-escalation study in PAH patients. It plans to enroll up to 9 patients in three dosing levels with PLX-PAD cells administered intravenously. The main endpoint of the study is to evaluate the safety of PLX-PAD cells over the period of a year. There are also secondary efficacy endpoints at six week intervals.
In 2011, Pluristem and United Therapeutics entered into a licensing agreement where United Therapeutics will develop, market, and sell Pluristem’s PLX-PAD cells for PAH. Under terms of the agreement, United made an upfront payment of $7 million to Pluristem. Pluristem is also eligible to receive regulatory milestone and other payments that may total up to an additional $48 million. United bears all the costs of conducting the clinical trials.
The licensing agreement also provides that, following commercialization, United Therapeutics will buy the PLX-PAD product at a specified margin over Pluristem’s cost. In addition, United will pay Pluristem specified royalties as a percentage of its gross profits generated from the sale of the PLX-PAD cell products.
