THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY FOR REAL WORLD EVIDENCE-BASED PRECISION MEDICINE:
STEM-CELL BASED ONCOLOGY R&D
Human Epithelial Stem Cell Innovation
epiSCI is a biotechnology drug development company on a mission to develop breakthrough treatments for the solid cancers of our internal organs, the carcinomas that represent 95% of all cancers. Our vision is to produce life-saving targeted therapies of high efficacy, while minimizing life-quality-lowering drug toxicities. To overcome drug resistance and prevent cancer spread, epiSCI uses a paradigm-shifting personalized medicine approach to identify the similarities and differences between the normal stem cells, which renew and maintain our organ's normal functions on any given day, and the cancer stem cells, their pathogenic offspring, which are the seeds of metastasis and causes of cancer mortality.
Common sense: the right research platform to develop the right drug, delivered to the right cells,
in the right patient or group of patients.
Breakthrough: A personalized medicine approach in R&D.
With our top-flight expertise in epithelial stem cell biology and cell culture, we study the differences and similarities between organ-derived, matched normal human stem cells studied in cancer-free and animal free environment and cancer stem cells from the same organ, to understand the process of carcinogenesis. We use the starting material dictated by common sense: the stem cells that are healthy in part of the organ but have become cancer elsewhere in the same organ and the same patient. We bring personalized medicine in R&D by looking at individual variations in drug responses as well as in a statistically significant number of patients.
