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.
In addition to the development of therapeutics, BioTime’s research and
other activities have resulted, over time, in the creation of other
subsidiaries that address other non-therapeutic market opportunities
such as cancer diagnostics, drug development and cell research products,
and mobile health software applications.
BioTime common stock is traded on the NYSE MKT and TASE under the symbol
BTX. For more information, please visit www.biotimeinc.com
