For those looking for recent momentum that has been contained in constructive consolidation to even out the momentum indicators on the chart – to relieve the overbought extremes, but in a potentially healthy manner — then Creative Medical Technology Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:CELZ) may be an interesting stock to have on your radar. This is a stem cell play with a focus on erectile dysfunction, and the catalysts have been piling up for the name of late.
As a case in point, the company just announced that its subsidiary Caverstem International LLC has signed an exclusive contract with Promo Med Russia for the commercialization of its CaverStem technology. According to the release, “As previously disclosed, Creative Medical Technology Holdings, Inc. formed the subsidiary CaverStem International LLC for the purpose of commercializing its erectile dysfunction technology to international physicians.”
Creative Medical Technology Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS: CELZ) bills itself as a company that is engaged in stem cell research and applications for use to treat male and female sexual dysfunction, infertility and related issues. It holds a patent for its erectile dysfunction (“ED”) treatment and was granted a license by Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a non-profit biomedical research and education institute (“LABIOMED”), for the infertility treatment.
It has also filed a patent application focused on physical manifestations of female sexual arousal disorder, as an extension of the work with stem cell therapies for ED. Following testing of its ED treatment, Creative Medical intends to market treatment kits to physicians for use with their patients suffering from ED. During the first quarter of 2016, it commenced a 15-month clinical trial study being conducted at UCLA by LABIOMED on the efficacy and safety of the ED treatment.
The study involves testing on 40 subjects. Following further testing, Creative Medical also intends to market licensed products under its infertility technology license and the female sexual dysfunction patent application.
According to company materials, “Creative Medical Technology Holdings, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company currently trading on the OTCQB under the ticker symbol CELZ.”

Traders will note 90% tacked on to share pricing for the listing in the past month, but this action is running counter to the larger trend in the name. Furthermore, the name has witnessed a pop in interest, as transaction volume levels have recently pushed 30% over what the stock has registered over the longer term.
“Upon meeting with Dr. Gershman and the CaverStem team at the American Urological Association conference in May, I became more familiar with the CaverStem technology and quickly identified it as a valuable treatment for the escalating erectile dysfunction problems in Russia. As physicians it is our responsibility to seek out and develop advanced technologies in medicine to improve the quality of our patients’ lives,” said Professor Dimitri Pushkar MD, Director of Urology at Moscow University.
“We are excited and appreciative that a physician of Dr. Pushkar’s reputation is involved in expanding our technology to the international medical community. We also wish to thank Dr. Gershman, as his decades-long relationships and stellar international reputation were instrumental in furthering our expansion of CaverStem,” said Timothy Warbington, CEO of Creative Medical Technology Holdings.
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $31.1M, CELZ has a store ($102K) of cash on the books, which is balanced by about $509K in total current liabilities. One should also note that debt has been growing over recent quarters. CELZ is pulling in nominal trailing 12-month revenues of $14K. But we are seeing recent top-line growth, with sequential quarterly revenues growing at 100%, which is at least certainly moving in the right direction at this point. This is an exciting story, and we look forward to a follow-up chapter as events transpire.
