Regenerative Therapies

Bringing MSC into clinical care to prevent inflammation-based diseases. Mesenchymal stromal cells have been shown to exhibit a great therapeutical potential in various diseases. However, up until now clinical application was limited by the lack of availability of clinical grade MSC in large quantities. A method has been developed by our group to isolate fetal MSC at clinical grade. The method was patented (DE102016114043B3) and is currently in migration into a university-based spin-off company. Within the MASC-collaboration these MSC are currently tested in clinical trials (OHRI, CHEO, SCRM). Currently, this cells are also used as a therapeutic agent to treat Covid-19 associated ARDS. Furthermore, a trial is planned to test efficacy in patients with steroid refractory GvHD. The project receives funding from different sources, including the BMBF within the SaxoCell Cluster4Future.
