About AgeX Therapeutics
AgeX Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE American: AGE) is focused on developing
and commercializing innovative therapeutics for human aging. Its PureStem® and
UniverCyte™ manufacturing and immunotolerance technologies
are designed to work together to generate highly defined, universal,
allogeneic, off-the-shelf pluripotent stem cell-derived young cells of
any type for application in a whole host of diseases with a high unmet
medical need. AgeX has two preclinical cell therapy programs: AGEX-VASC1
(vascular progenitor cells) for tissue ischemia and AGEX-BAT1 (brown fat
cells) for Type II diabetes. AgeX’s revolutionary longevity platform
named induced Tissue Regeneration (iTR™) aims to unlock cellular
immortality and regenerative capacity to reverse age-related changes
within tissues. AGEX-iTR1547 is an iTR-based formulation in preclinical
development. HyStem® is AgeX’s delivery technology to stably
engraft PureStem cell therapies and slowly release iTR molecules in the
body. AgeX is developing its core product pipeline for use in the clinic
to extend human healthspan, and is seeking opportunities to form
licensing and partnership agreements around its broad IP estate and
proprietary technology platforms for non-core clinical applications.
