About Biostage, Inc.: www.biostage.com
Biostage is a biotechnology company developing bioengineered organ implants utilizing the company’s Cellframe™ technology which combines a proprietary biocompatible scaffold with a patient’s own stem cells to create Cellspan™ organ implants. Cellspan implants are designed to stimulate the regeneration of organ tissue following the surgical removal of cancer or other life threatening diseases or trauma in the esophagus, bronchus and trachea. Based on its preclinical data, Biostage has selected life-threatening conditions of the esophagus as the initial clinical application of its technology.
Cellspan implants are currently being advanced and tested in collaborative pre-clinical studies focused on life-threatening conditions of the esophagus in support of Biostage’s goal of filing an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. FDA in late 2016. The IND will seek approval to initiate clinical trials for its esophageal implants in humans.
