The process of regeneration developed by
Fortuna Fix is based on the Axolotl
Salamander’s well documented ability to regenerate.
drNPCs: multipotent cells of the neural lineage produced by direct reprogramming. Directly reprogrammed neural precursor cells (drNPC) are made by reprogramming somatic cells which are the everyday cells that make up the body. The technology is akin to replacing the software of a cell (which is the hardware). This allows skin cells or blood cells, for example, to be become neural precursor cells, which in turn can differentiate to neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes to rebuild neural tissue (Central Nervous System and Spinal Cord). The drNPCs are autologous and their manufacturing is fully automated.
Regeneration Matrix™ is a unique self-assembling 3-dimensional biomaterial with intricate physical characteristics that mimic the matrix in regenerating tissues. Placing Regeneration Matrix™ in a site of injury kick-starts the regeneration process in damaged or injured tissue. Regeneration Matrix™ promotes angiogenesis and has an ability to prevent scar tissue formation and the growth of tumour cells.
Rebuilding neural tissue and restoring functionality with therapeutic stem cells that are:
- custom-designed to address the underlying pathology of each condition
- personalised to each patient (autologous)
Lead programs involve transplantation of directly reprogrammed autologous neural precursor cells:
