  • December of 2016, the 21st Century Cures Act was signed into law, providing interactive regulatory paths for regenerative medicine therapies.
  • Summer of 2017 marked the first FDA-approved genetic engineering therapy to turn a patient’s own blood into an autologous vaccine by changing the way white blood cells function.
  • 423 North American companies are currently concentrating entrepreneurial resources on regenerative medicine therapies. 
  • In H1 2017, global regenerative medicine companies raised over $4 BILLION of investor capital to finance research, development, and commercialization of new therapies!

The exciting science of Regenerative Medicine develops ways to replace, re-engineer, or regenerate human cells, tissues, and organs to restore normal function.  Many U.S. firms are pursuing the FDA’s new Regenerative Medicine Advanced Therapy (RMAT) designation under the 21st Century Cures Act, which facilitates expedited reviews and approvals of these groundbreaking therapies.  Join us for a discussion about the legal considerations for commercializing a regenerative medicine innovation.  This snapshot will focus on regulatory concerns and litigation in this emerging space.
