Encapsulated cell therapy is an emerging area of biopharmaceutical research that aims to unleash the therapeutic potential of cells to treat serious diseases without the need for immunosuppression. Altucell has developed patented, proprietary engineered cells that are combined with a patented encapsulation technology to create effective therapeutics. These cells:

· express high levels of immunoregulatory proteins

· survive well in an encapsulation environment

· undergo measured division

· can be produced in large scale

· are of a similar type to cells previously used in clinical applications

· provide the ability to easily insert and retrieve

· applicable to numerous, various diseases
