Announced today that significant progress has been achieved in its collaboration with Evotec SE. This progress includes advancement of Evotec’s iPSC derived islet-like clusters in combination with Sernova’s implantable Cell Pouch device toward a first-in-human Phase 1/2 clinical trial for the treatment of patients with T1D and severe hypoglycemia slated for regulatory filing in 2024. The objective of the collaboration is to produce an off-the-shelf, commercially viable, ethically derived cell therapy treatment for people suffering from T1D. The treatment would include Sernova’s Cell Pouch System™ incorporating Evotec’s iPSC-derived islet-like clusters. The combination product is anticipated to be the first treatment of its kind to reach clinical testing for T1D. Sernova Corp. shares T.SVA are trading unchanged at $0.93.
