BioRestorative Therapies Inc (NASDAQ: BRTX) Announces European Patentability Of ThermoStem® Program With Indications In Obesity And Type 2 Diabetes

BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.

By Julian Richard, Benzinga BioRestorative Therapies (NASDAQ: BRTX), a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on stem cell-based therapies, announced on the 8th of February that the European Patent Office had issued a notice of allowance for a patent application related to its metabolic ThermoStem® program. The Notice of Allowance signals the end of the examination process for the patent application. It indicates that the European Patent Office has determined that the ThermoStem® program is novel, non-obvious, and fully and particularly described in the patent application. The Notice of Allowance is a testament to BioRestorative’s commitment to innovation and advancing medical science through developing novel therapies utilizing adult stem cells. With this milestone, BioRestorative has made significant strides toward achieving its mission of developing and commercializing cell-based products and therapeutics for various metabolic conditions – such as diabetes and obesity – across key international markets. This patent will provide the company with protection for its proprietary ThermoStem® process, which is being developed for the treatment of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, such as obesity and increased cholesterol (fat) and glucose in the blood, that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The ThermoStem® program harnesses the body’s ability to create new brown fat tissue from human brown adipose-derived stem cells. Pioneering research conducted by Biorestorative Therapies demonstrated that brown tissue burns rather than stores energy. Increased levels of brown tissue support weight loss by increasing metabolism and reducing sugar and fats in the blood. Thus, higher brown fat levels may address metabolic syndrome's significant effects. Obesity management is the subject of intense clinical development with Eli Lilly Co (NYSE: LLY) and Pfizer Inc (NYSE: PFE) looking to emulate the success of Semaglutide, marketed by Novo Nordisk A/S (NYSE: NVO) for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes. “Our patent family for our ThermoStem® program continues to grow as we receive additional patent grants in key markets,” said Lance Alstodt, CEO of BioRestorative Therapies, commenting on the development. “We are committed to the development of ThermoStem® as a potential treatment for obesity and metabolic disorders, such as type 2 diabetes. This patent, which covers a manufacturing process for ThermoStem® developed by BioRestorative’s scientists, enhances our ability to do so in European jurisdictions.” In addition to its metabolic program (ThermoStem®), BioRestorative Therapies is pioneering the use of a patient’s bone marrow cells to treat chronic lower back pain caused by degenerative disc disease. BRTX-100 is currently being evaluated as a non-invasive alternative to surgery in patients with degenerative chronic lower back pain, with results from the clinical study expected in March or April 2023.

BioRestorative Therapies was founded by scientists and researchers committed to developing stem cell therapies to address unmet needs in patients with highly prevalent conditions.Our advances in stem cell biology and delivery protocols harbor great promise in conditioning our bodies’ own regenerative potential to treat major diseases more effectively than current interventions.Today, BioRestorative is actively developing programs that aim to dramatically increase quality of care for both (i) chronic back pain caused by disc degeneration, as well as (ii) metabolic disorders including obesity and diabetes.

February is Pet Dental Health Month


Dental disease affects 80% of adult dogs and 96% of senior dogs[1], but new data from WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ® finds that very few Gen Z and Millennial pet parents are brushing their dog’s teeth daily, and less than one-half (44%) could list the signs of disease to their vet.[2] With February being Pet Dental Health Month, it is the perfect opportunity to start a proper doggy dental routine. Recently, Dr. Danielle Bernal, veterinarian with WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ®, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss pet dental health and what pet parents can do to establish a healthy routine. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Ideally, pet parents should be thinking about their dog’s teeth the same way they do their own. When it comes to at-home care, daily brushing of a dog’s teeth with a toothbrush and special canine toothpaste works, but pet parents often face toothbrush troubles.In fact, WHIMZEES by Wellness found that Gen Z and Millennial pet parents’ dogs have given side eye (58%) or run away (41%) at the sight of one. “If you are struggling with brushing your dog’s teeth consistently, incorporating a daily dental chew can be an excellent resource to help maintain your dog’s dental care and keep those tails wagging,” said Dr. Danielle Bernal. “In addition to daily dental care, it’s important to recognize the signs of periodontal disease, such as discoloration, broken or loose teeth, super stinky breath, reduced appetite and inflamed gums. By incorporating a daily dental chew like WHIMZEES by Wellness, pet parents can ensure they’re treating their dogs well and give them healthy smiles to live happier and healthier lives together.” WHIMZEES by Wellness all-natural dental treats allows pet parents to treat dogs well by combining the joy of treats with health benefits of supporting healthy teeth and gums. By giving just one WHIMZEES treat a day to fight bacteria that resurfaces daily, dogs get twice the cleaning power because WHIMZEES last three times longer to provide more cleaning time.[3] They are thoughtfully engineered with grooves and ridges to provide dogs with both chomping and cleaning, making WHIMZEES the treat that treats them well. WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ® dental treats are conveniently available at pet specialty retailers, national retailers and online.

In her role as on-staff veterinarian at Wellness Pet Company, maker of premium natural food and treats for dogs and cats, including WHIMZEES ® by Wellness ®, she educates pet parents and retailers alike on the importance of natural ingredients like wholesome meats and nutrient-rich superfoods and the highest quality standards. She passionately believes that proper nutrition helps pets lead happier, healthier lives and she shares that message with pet parents [1] Ozy, Sweeney, Dog Owners Have a New Obsession: Dental Health for Their Pets, March 2019 [2] Conducted in December 2022, Pollfish collected data via an online survey from a random sampling of 1,000 Gen Z and Millennial (ages 18-41) dog parents identified as demographically representative of the U.S. population.
