VetCell Therapeutics USA is clinical stage division of PrimeGen US Inc, a subsidiary of PrimeGen Global, which is currently in the clinical trials phase for its allogenic cell therapy products. The company, in collaboration with UC Davis, College of Veterinary Medicine, is in the process of enrolling cats in a large-scale, FDA authorized, multi-center clinical trial where its DentaHeal™︎ cell therapy for FCGS will be evaluated.
The division is also completing pilot clinical trials of its cell therapies for canine atopic dermatitis and canine osteoarthritis. It plans to start clinical trials for its canine cell treatments targeting atopic dermatitis in 2021 and osteoarthritis in 2022.
The data from these clinical trials will be submitted to the US FDA to support approval of the respective cell therapy.
|Therapy Type||Pipeline Status||Target Date|
|DentaHeal - Allogenic MSC for FCGS||Clinical phase - Initiated FDA authorized clinical trial in 2020||Pivitol study to start 2022|
|Allogenic MSC for Canine AD||INAD enabling study phase - Complete||Safety study to start 2021|
|Allogenic MSC for Canine OA||INAD enabling study phase - Complete||Safety study to start 2022|
Collaboration is the key to our Success
We are committed to making cell therapy a mainstay of modern veterinary medicine. To accomplish this, VetCell Therapeutics USA has fostered collaborative relationships with some of the highest regarded veterinary schools in the world.
UC Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine
Veterinary Institute for Regenerative Cures
We are working with UC Davis’s VIRC on hosting a multi-center clinical trial for DentaHeal, an investigational cell therapy for the treatment of FCGS. We are currently in the recruitment phase.
College of Veterinary Medicine
We are working with Western University on an INAD enabling study of MSCs as a treatment for Canine AD. Initial study is complete, and we will be exploring a safety study soon.
