Recently, I had the honor of interviewing Kyle Cetrulo, CEO of AuxoCell Laboratories. In this interview, we explore the upcoming Future of Regenerative Medicine Congress, as well as future directions for regenerative medicine at large. Enjoy. [Read more…]
“Stem Cell Research Products – Opportunities, Tools, & Technologies” is a global strategic report report that evaluates opportunities across the entire stem cell product spectrum, with emphasis on opportunities for research product development. [Read more…]
This is part one of a two-part interview with Matthew Feshbach, CEO and Co-Founder of Okyanos (pronounced “Oh – key – AH – nos”). Founded in 2011, Okyanos is an innovative stem cell therapy provider that specializes in treating patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and other chronic conditions.
Okyanos Cell Therapy delivers a mixed population of fat (adipose) derived stem and regenerative cells (ADRCs) using internationally-approved technology to patients with chronic, degenerative conditions.
Treatments are performed in their purpose-built, state-of-theart cell therapy center, led by Dr. Jeffrey Hartog, a U.S. double board-certified plastic and cranio-maxillo facial surgeon. Okyanos is fully licensed under the Bahamas Stem Cell Therapy and Research Act and adheres to U.S. surgical center standards. [Read more…]
To understand the growing market potential for stem cell therapies, it is critical to consider the current landscape for stem cell clinical trials.
There are 5561 clinical trials found when the term “stem cells” is searched on ClinicalTrials.gov, indicating that there are now thousands of stem cell trials underway worldwide. (Search executed November 7, 2016.)
ClinicalTrials.gov is the global registry of publicly and privately supported clinical studies involving human patients. While not a comprehensive resource, it contains approximately three-quarters of registered cell therapy trials worldwide.
Below is a map showing the location of current stem cell clinical trials.

“Hotspots” for Stem Cell Clinical Trial Activity
Clearly, North America (3057 trials) and Europe (1288 trials) are “hotspots” for stem cell clinical trial activity.
Among the North American trials, nearly all of them of them are occurring in the United States (2935). [Read more…]
A question that I am frequently asked is, “How do you find a stem cell clinical trial?”
The short answer is, go to ClinicalTrials.gov and search for a stem cell clinical trial specific to your condition.
There are three steps:
- Go to ClinicalTrials.gov
- Search by the phrase “stem cells”
- Identify a clinical trial specific to your medical condition
Below, I go into more depth on how to approach this process. [Read more…]
