THE SCIENCE

 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT IS OUR ABILITY TO KEEP YOUR CELLS THE SAME.

At Hope Biosciences, all of the stem cell treatments under development are based on our core stem cell culture and banking technology.

OUR RESEARCH STARTED WITH A SIMPLE PREMISE

Our bodies contain billions of stem cells that are responsible for repairing us, regulating our immune system, maintaining our body’s natural regenerative function and even promoting circulation. Found in almost every tissue of our bodies, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are widely recognized as having the highest regenerative capacity.

PLURIPOTENT

They have the ability to become practically every cell type in the body (with exception to blood cells).

WHY MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS?

SELF-REGENERATING

They can regenerate into new stem cells. 

ETHICALLY SOURCED

They can be found in almost every tissue of the body and can easily be harvested from adults and children.

REGULATES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Directly impacts inflammation in the body and the mechanism of healing.

ANTI-BACTERIAL

MSCs have natural antimicrobial properties.

ANGIOGENIC

Form blood vessels thus increasing blood flow.  A critical step for healing.

PREVENTS CELL DEATH

MSCs have naturally anti-apoptotic properties.

The main reason why chronic degenerative diseases affect us later in life is simply because we lose stem cells as we age and therefore cannot regenerate as fast as we degenerate.

HOPE BIOSCIENCES WAS FORMED TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.

Could there be a way to effectively replace the regenerative stem cells that we've lost over time?

WE FOUND THE SOLUTION BY OVERCOMING THREE MAJOR HURDLES▸▸▸

▸ Finding a Cell Source

First, we had to find a source of mesenchymal stem cells that met our criteria:

1) Safe; 2) ethical; 3) consistent; 4) easy to obtain

Fat tissue met all our requirements.  To avoid rejection and ethical concerns, we chose to use one's own fat. We also found that regardless of age or condition, we could successfully find consistent quantities of mesenchymal stem cells in fat.  Our process requires only 1 tablespoon of fat thereby making the process easy and virtually painless for any patient to undergo.

One of our manufacturing technicians holds up a syringe containing a fat sample from a Hope Bio adult stem cell banker. It is separated and ready for processing to isolate the mesenchymal stem cells.

The inside of our cell incubators is a controlled environment where small amounts of stem cells grow into large amounts used for banking or treatments.

▸▸ Producing the Right Quantity

Just as medication is dependent on dose, stem cell therapy is as well.  You need access to adequate quantities in order to make a difference.

 

Hope Biosciences‘ core technology is the ability to make accurate copies of your own stem cells to unprecedented quantities. We start with one tablespoon of fat or approximately 100,000 mesenchymal stem cells and can culture (grow) these cells in a way that not only generates high amounts; but, maintains their original characteristics such as identity, purity, genetic stability, potency, differentiation capacity and phenotype.

 

In a nutshell, we have the ability to generate unlimited quantities of your stem cells that are the same as those we took from your body.

▸▸▸ Creating an Endless Supply

To effectively treat a disease, not only is the appropriate dose required but often times, the treatment needs to be repeated until resolved. This is by far the greatest hurdle in the field of regenerative medicine.

Hope Biosciences has overcome this hurdle by standardizing a process by which only 1 tablespoon of fat is required to generate virtually unlimited quantities of cells at unlimited doses*. The same applies to newborn babies. A small sample of the amniotic membrane of the placenta is all that is needed to generate all the stem cells they would ever need in their lifetime*.

Our stem cell bankers‘ master cell banks are contained in these small cryovials which are stored in a liquid Nitrogen tank until a fresh batch of cells is needed.
