Whiteboard: Sernova’s Cell Pouch™ for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)

Type 1 Diabetes is a condition in which the
body produces little to no insulin Insulin is what allow sugars to enter the
body from the bloodstream to produce energy. If a person doesn’t have enough insulin,
this results in rising of blood sugar levels and requires daily insulin injections. Both
low and high blood sugar levels can be dangerous and if not properly regulated, can have potentially
harmful effects such as blindness, kidney disease, heart disease and amputations
Sernova is a clinical stage regenerative medicine company developing a new approach to treat
diseases such as type 1 diabetes Sernova’s Cell Pouch is a small device which,
once implanted in the body, creates a safe environment to transplant therapeutic cells.
These therapeutic cells can then restore the body functions and release the missing factors
in the body as needed. For diabetes, the cells respond to elevated blood sugar levels by
releasing insulin Sernova’s regenerative medicine solution
could be used for diabetes and other chronic diseases such as hemophilia A, thyroid disease
and other rare diseases Sernova is currently in clinical trials in
the US at the University of Chicago For more information:
