About Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology
Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology (HART) is developing bioengineered organ implants utilizing the recipient's own stem cells to treat life-threatening conditions. HART has developed and begun testing a new technology platform to create organ implants to replace diseased or damaged portions of the esophagus, trachea or bronchus to restore function.
HART's novel "Cellframe" technology platform utilizes new scaffold materials and design, a different type and concentration of the patient's own cells and certain other improvements to address the needs of affected patients. This new platform is currently being tested and developed further in a large-animal collaborative study with Mayo Clinic. HART is working to refine its new platform and to develop compelling data to pursue its goals of filing an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in late 2016 to initiate clinical trials for one of its three product candidates and compassionate use implantation surgeries.
