Stempeutics inks a deal with Cipla for Stempeucel

18 May 2018 | News

Stempeucel has significant potential to overcome limitations of traditional treatment approaches for CLI due to anti-inflammatory properties, ability to promote neovascularization and promote healing of non-healing ischemic ulcers.

Biotech firm Stempeutics Research has said that it has inked an out-licensing deal with drug major Cipla for its stem cell therapy product Stempeucel, indicated for treating critical limb ischemia. 

"Under this agreement, Cipla will get exclusive marketing rights for five years in India for critical limb ischemia due to atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease (CLI-PAD) with Stempeutics manufacturing and supplying the product to Cipla," the company said in a statement. 
 
CLI-PAD is characterised by narrowing of arteries in the legs limiting blood flow to the muscles due to the build-up of fatty deposits called plaque, Stempeutics said. 

"The product is expected to be available in the Indian market in the beginning of 2020 after undergoing the phase 3 clinical trial in India, which is expected to commence in 2018," it added. 

Stempeutics CEO BN Manohar said, "Although alternate treatments exist for CLI-PAD, only 50 per cent of patients can be  managed with contemporary vascular techniques, while satisfactory clinical outcomes are evident in about 25 per cent of the patients," Manohar said. 

Stempeucel has significant potential to overcome limitations of traditional treatment approaches for CLI due to anti-inflammatory properties, ability to promote neovascularization and promote healing of non-healing ischemic ulcers, he added.
