Recent published reports have demonstrated that BAT is found in adults and can be routinely isolated. In addition to providing material needed to further advance BRTs pre-clinical models, BioRestorative Therapies' library of stem cells can also provide a valuable and unique in seeking to develop small molecules that activate brown fat and increase energy expenditure, a strategy for addressing both obesity and diabetes. The Company's ongoing cell characterizations, collected data, and stem cells represent a potential supply of necessary controls and variety of cells for pharmaceutical and other companies embarking on the small molecule drug development pathway.
Mark Weinreb, Chairman and CEO of BioRestorative Therapies, said, "To our knowledge, we have the largest library of human brown fat stem cell lines known, which represents an enormous research asset in working towards a therapy for metabolic disorders and obesity. Having a large collection of brown fat stem cell lines will be important to accelerate the development of our ThermoStem® Program. Such access also provides opportunities for collaboration and strategic partnerships, because this volume and variety of collections is complementary to large pharmaceutical companies working on small molecule-based programs seeking to treat these disorders."
About BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. ("BRT"), www.biorestorative.com, develops medical procedures using cell and tissue protocols, primarily involving adult stem cells, designed for patients to undergo minimally invasive cellular-based treatments. BRT is developing the following scientific initiatives:
- brtxDISC™ Program (Disc Implanted Stem Cells), a non-surgical treatment for bulging and herniated discs that addresses the gap between non-invasive and invasive back procedures. This research is still in the non-clinical, investigational stage.
- ThermoStem® Program, a treatment for metabolic disorders (diabetes, heart disease, etc.) and obesity using brown fat stem cells. Initial non-clinical research indicates that increased amounts of brown fat in the body may be responsible for additional caloric burning as well as reduced glucose and lipid levels in the body.
- brtx-C Cosmetic Program, based on the development of a human cellular extract that, per initial in vitro studies, when applied to human skin cells, appears to cause an increase in the production of collagen and fibronectin, which are proteins that are essential to combating the aging of skin. Potential cosmetic uses are being explored with third parties.
