Cytori Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CYTX) and Green Hospital Supply expanded the StemSourceÂ® Cell Bank commercialization partnership to include Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. As with the commercialization agreement for Japan, revenues from all related product sales will be shared equally between Cytori and Green Hospital Supply.
Commercialization activities in Japan have resulted in a significant number of prospective customers not only in Japan, but throughout Asia, said Seijiro Shirahama, president of Cytori Asia Pacific. With Green Hospital SupplyÂ™s experience and knowledge of the region, we are able to take advantage of the existing product infrastructure to expand the revenue potential for the StemSourceÂ® Cell Bank.
The StemSourceÂ® Cell Bank is being commercialized to hospitals in Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand by Green Hospital Supply, Inc., in partnership with Cytori. The foundation of the StemSourceÂ® Cell Bank is Cytori’s proprietary CelutionÂ® 900 System, which automates the separation and concentration of stem and regenerative cells residing within adipose tissue so they may be prepared for cryopreservation.
CytoriÂ™s (NASDAQ:CYTX) goal is to be the global leader in regenerative medicine. The company is dedicated to providing patients with new options for reconstructive surgery, developing treatments for cardiovascular disease, and banking patients’ adult stem and regenerative cells. The CelutionÂ® 800 System is being introduced in Europe into the reconstructive surgery market while the CelutionÂ® 900 System will be launched in Japan for cryopreserving a patient’s own stem and regenerative cells. Clinical trials are ongoing in cardiovascular disease and planned for spinal disc degeneration, gastrointestinal disorders, and other unmet medical needs. (www.cytoritx.com)
