Hemostemix CEO on autologous stem cell therapy and how it works with circulatory issues
In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Peter Clausi speaks with Thomas Smeenk, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Hemostemix Inc. (TSXV: HEM | OTC: HMTXD), about Hemostemix’s technology that uses patients own blood to treat ischemia in the circulatory system of the body.
In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Thomas said, “We take blood from patient’s arm. We fractionate out their stem cell from that blood.” He continued, “Then we culture them and change them from a raw stem cell into an angiogenic cell precursor that is programed to address ischemia in the circulatory system of the body. It is common in diabetics, in individuals who suffer from heart disease such as angina or ischemic cardiomyopathy, in wound care.”
Thomas stated that Hemostemix has treated more than 500 patients using the technology which is now in clinical trials. He added, “The second one we patented is NCP (Neural Cellular Precursor). This is a cell that can be used to treat stroke, diseases that have nerve damage.”
