BioTime is a biotechnology company engaged in research and product
development in the field of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine
refers to therapies based on stem cell technology that are designed to
rebuild cell and tissue function lost due to degenerative disease or
injury. BioTime’s focus is on pluripotent stem cell technology based on
human embryonic stem (“hES”) cells and induced pluripotent stem (“iPS”)
cells. hES and iPS cells provide a means of manufacturing every cell
type in the human body and therefore show considerable promise for the
development of a number of new therapeutic products. BioTime’s
therapeutic and research products include a wide array of proprietary PureStem®
hydrogels, culture media, and differentiation kits. BioTime is
developing Renevia™ (a HyStem® product) as a
biocompatible, implantable hyaluronan and collagen-based matrix for cell
delivery in human clinical applications, and is planning to initiate a
pivotal clinical trial around Renevia™, in 2014. In addition,
BioTime has developed Hextend®,
a blood plasma volume expander for use in surgery, emergency trauma
treatment and other applications. Hextend® is
manufactured and distributed in the U.S. by Hospira, Inc. and in South
Korea by CJ HealthCare Corporation, under exclusive licensing agreements.
