BioTime, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on
developing and commercializing novel therapies developed from what the
company believes to be the world’s premier collection of pluripotent
cell assets. The foundation of BioTime’s core therapeutic technology
platform is pluripotent cells that are capable of becoming any of the
cell types in the human body. Pluripotent cells have potential
application in many areas of medicine with large unmet patient needs,
including various age-related degenerative diseases and degenerative
conditions for which there presently are no cures. Unlike
pharmaceuticals that require a molecular target, therapeutic strategies
based on the use of pluripotent cells are generally aimed at
regenerating or replacing affected cells and tissues, and therefore may
have broader applicability than pharmaceutical products. BioTime also
has significant equity holdings in two publicly traded companies,
Asterias Biotherapeutics, Inc. and OncoCyte Corporation, which BioTime
founded and which, until recently, were majority-owned consolidated
subsidiaries of BioTime.
BioTime common stock is traded on the NYSE MKT and TASE under the symbol
