IntelliCell Licenses SVF Manufacturing Technology to Cell-Innovations

  • Cell-Innovations will market the stromal vascular fraction (SVF) manufacturing technology of IntelliCell BioSciences in Australia and New Zealand, under a license agreement that calls for a one-time payment of $700,000 and a royalty stream of 12.5% of net sales.

    IntelliCell’s technology is a nonenzymatic method for deriving SVF containing adult stem cells from 60 cc’s of adipose tissue. According to the company, the technology generates between half billion to 1.4 billion SVF cells, about 10–20 times greater than present-day enzyme-based methods.

    Cell-Innovations and IntelliCell also say they will assist Macquarie Stem Cells, a company of Cell-Innovations director Ralph Bright, to establish IntelliCell Centers of Excellence where doctors can treat their patients.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
