BioTime, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: BTX) is a biotechnology company engaged in two areas of biomedical research and product development:

  • Stem cell technology and products for use in regenerative medicine.  These products and technologies are being developed and marketed by our wholly owned subsidiary Embryome Sciences, Inc.
  • Blood plasma volume expanders and related technology for use in surgery, emergency trauma treatment and other applications.  Our lead product is Hextend® which is being marketed by Hospira, Inc. and CJ CheilJedang Corp. under exclusive licenses from us


The Potential of Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine refers to therapies based on human embryonic stem ("hES") cell technology that are designed to rebuild cell and tissue function lost due to degenerative disease or injury. The great scientific and public interest in regenerative medicine lies in the potential of hES cells to transform into any cell type of the human body. hES cells therefore show considerable potential as a source of new therapies for a host of currently-incurable diseases such as: diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, heart failure, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, macular degeneration, hearing loss, kidney and liver failure, as well as many other disorders that may be treated by replacing diseased or damaged organ tissues. In response to the unusual potential of the field, the State of California has allocated $3 billion over the next 10 years to fund basic research, and President Obama has lifted previous restrictions for federal funding of stem cell research.

Led by Dr. Michael West, considered by many to be a founding father of the stem cell industry, BioTime has assembled an array of products and associated intellectual property that give it the potential to be a leader in this exciting new field of medicine.

We are implementing a near-term revenues strategy in the regenerative medicine field by seeking to develop and market advanced hES products and technology that can be used by researchers at universities and biopharmaceutical companies. These research-only products generally can be marketed without regulatory (FDA) approval, and are therefore relatively near-term business opportunities when compared to human therapeutic products. We may also initiate development programs for human therapeutic applications if sufficient capital becomes available to us or through joint efforts with industry partners.

BioTime is leveraging its product development strategy on two key technology platforms:

  • • An advanced iPS technology allowing the transformation of human cells of the body back to a primordial stem cell state equivalent to embryonic stem cells. Using this technology with patient specific stem cells, rather than stem cells derived from embryos donated by unrelated people, may reduce the incidence of rejection of tissue grafts.
  • ACTCellerate™ technology that permits the generation of scalable and highly purified cells of the human body.

Dr. Michael West, CEO

Dr. West is the Chief Executive Officer of BioTime, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: BTIM) and Embryome Sciences, Inc. of Alameda, California. The Companies are focused on developing an array of research and therapeutic products using human embryonic stem cell technology. He received his Ph.D. from Baylor College of Medicine in 1989 concentrating on the biology of cellular aging. He has focused his academic and business career on the application of developmental biology to the age-related degenerative disease. He was the Founder of Geron Corporation of Menlo Park, California (Nasdaq: GERN) and from 1990 to 1998 he was a Director, and Vice President, where he initiated and managed programs in telomerase diagnostics, oligonucleotide-based telomerase inhibition as anti-tumor therapy, and the cloning and use of telomerase in telomerase-mediated therapy wherein telomerase is utilized to immortalize human cells. From 1995 to 1998 he organized and managed the research collaboration between Geron and its academic collaborators James Thomson and John Gearhart that led to the first isolation of human embryonic stem and human embryonic germ cells. From 1998 to 2007 he was President and Chief Scientific Officer at Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: ACTC) where he managed programs in animal cloning, human somatic cell nuclear transfer, retinal differentiation, and ACTCellerate, a technology for the multiplex derivation and characterization of clonal human embryonic progenitor cell lines.
