Cell Tissue Technology Sdn Bhd (CTT) today announces its participation at the 2013 Biopharma Asia Convention held in Sentosa Island, Singapore from 18 – 21 March 2013.
The 2013 BioPharma Asia Convention is the largest and most strategic event in Asia that brings together more than 4,000 key stakeholders and decision makers from across the globe to explore partnership ideas, business trends and investment opportunities in Asia's bio-pharmaceutical sector.
This year's BioPharma Asia Convention was dedicated entirely to the value chain of the pharmaceutical industry, including innovations, technologies and methodologies in driving drug discovery development across Asia. The convention also explored the latest technology and best practices in increasing biologic manufacturing productivity, licensing and partnering opportunities in Asia, particularly in the fields of pharmaceutical and biotechnology. In addition, the conference also showcased the latest trends and development in Asia's top 3 diseases – cardiology, oncology and diabetes.
The CEO of Cell Tissue Technology Sdn Bhd, Dr Khairul Baharin gave two speeches at two different sessions of the Convention. The first speech entitled "Assessing Commercial Opportunities and Challenges for Stem Cell Applications In Asia” was delivered on 19 March 2013. The session also involved discussions on accessing the trends, opportunities and challenges in the commercialization of stem cell applications in Asia as a viable business model. There was an in-depth analysis of the capabilities of popular countries in Asia in commercializing stem cell applications for therapeutic and drug discovery purposes.
The second speech, titled "Formation of Autologous Bilayer Tissue Engineered Human Skin Using HPD as Biomaterials” was delivered on 20 March 2013. The session covered a demonstration of CTT's key product, MyDerm™. Among the areas touched were on MyDerm™'s unique characteristics, underlying principles of tissue engineered skin using HDP as biomaterials and identifying the needs of the study towards solving current and upcoming clinical problems. This is in addition to discussions on the efforts and initiatives to recognize and ascertain suitable alternatives to the current gold-standard treatments and the journey from the laboratories to bedsides.
The events helped the attendees to gain an insight into Asia' stem cell industry from leading pharmaceuticals, biotechnology companies and research institutes to identify and assess the critical issues at the interface of stem cells and regenerative medicine. These sessions also helped to uncover the latest breakthroughs in Asia's stem cell industry besides getting engaged in meaningful discussions with the industry's veterans and global heavyweights.
Such events are important and crucial to create prospects for business collaborations between basic research scientists and pharmaceutical companies.
Cell Tissue Technology Sdn Bhd announces today that the Company's key product, MyDerm™ is listed among the 50 Innovation Business Opportunities (IBO) at the 6th Governance Council Meeting of Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM).
According to AIM, MyDerm™ has the potential to generate a revenue of RM3.07 million in 3 years' time.
IBO is a continuous project under AIM that showcases locally developed potential innovations that are available for bidding by individuals and companies locally and abroad. The emphasis is to secure a business partner to commercialize the intellectual properties of universities and research institutes in Malaysia.
AIM's role is to bridge and facilitate the processes involved by publishing on their website every quarter the 50 projects available for interested parties to "bid”. Bidding here does not refer to any monetary transactions but indicates an interest. When a party bids for a project, it is required to provide information to AIM for screening with the owners of the IPs.
An introductory meeting will be held between the bidder and the IP owner to discuss potential modes of cooperation or collaboration.
MyDerm™ was included with 49 other projects which were announced by the Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Details for bidding are now available at www.innovation.my.
Cell Tissue Technology Sdn Bhd (CTT) is a Malaysian-based company established as a spin-off from the National University of Malaysia or UKM. One of the early ideas behind the formation is to manufacture and commercialize MyDerm™ - an autologous tissue engineered medical product researched and developed by the Tissue Engineering Centre of UKM.
Currently there are less than 10 companies in the country adopting advanced medical technology as their core business activities. Many are still wedged at the pre-commercialization stage and none has boasts any success story in the market. CTT aims to be at the forefront of Malaysia's advanced medical industry in areas of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Our first step towards this direction is our introduction of MyDerm™, the first tissue engineered human skin in Malaysia.
ABOUT MyDERM™ - THE JOURNEY
MyDerm™ is an advanced 3D autologous skin substitute meant for the repair of full thickness skin loss. This skin substitute is permanent, able to replace the traditional skin and have proven to enhance wound healing.
MyDerm™ is used mainly to replace skin loss due to burns, injuries, diseases and infections.
MyDerm™'s contribution to the medical scene is enormous and significant, more so for diabetic patients who generally suffer from poor wound healing. The prevention of infections to open wounds will reduce greatly the dreaded solution of amputation.
As such, CTT is confident that the introduction of MyDerm™ will revolutionize the local medical industry, bringing hope and solutions to people who need it – doctors, patients, surgeons, consultants, etc.
To ensure its effectiveness and safety, MyDerm™ will be extensively used clinically on patients. The research and development for this product was completed in big animal study and Limited Clinical Application in June 2008. The prototype also underwent several tests such as "Toxicology for Safety”, "Rejection on Implantation” and "Flowcytometry Cell Cycle Analysis”. There were no incidents of infections, graft losses, excessive bleeding or hematoma. Patients reported less pain, less scaring and discoloration after treatment.
