Market are yet to react to the company’s most recent news, which symboilizes a major step forward for US Stem Cell in terms of validation of its lead technology and the primary application of this technology to the healthcare space.
Specifically, the news details the publication of a preclinical trial of US Stem Cell’s osteoarthritis treatment. The science that underpins this treatment is pretty much the same across the whole spectrum of different target indications and that’s why this validation is so important.
Essentially, the company removes fat cells from the patient through liposuction and then extracts stem cells from this removed fat. It then injects the stem cells (directly) into the region of the body for which the patient requires treatment.
USRM just recently released results from a study where stem cell treatment was injected into patient’s knees and patients were asked to walk for 6 minutes after the WOMAC test. The treatment numbers proved to be successful.
Across the ten patients, average WOMAC reduced to 52 at 3 months, 46 at 6 months, 42 at 1 year, 38 at 1.5 years, and 41 at 2 years. This is after one round of treatment. All of these reductions were statistically significant, recorded at p-values of 0.01 or less. Similarly, the treatment resulted in an improvement in the 6MWD test at 3 and 6 months and 1, 1.5, and 2 years post treatment.
The study is not enough to validate the treatment in total, but if the upcoming tests continue to validate this treatment, the stock could take a run.
US Stem Cell Inc (OTCMKTS:USRM) has great science and cash to burn for the moment – after a $5 million financing – but investors need watch out for dilution. USRM is carrying a $17.56 million market cap and 335.43 million shares outstanding. We will be watching news on this company and if the therapy results are promising again, the market may not ignore it for a second time. However, as all investors know, biotech is a risky endeavor, regardless.
