John S. Arnone, CEO stated, “We are very optimistic about the state of the Regenerative Medicine Industry globally as we enter 2018. We have seen a steady increase of new international companies seeking to license our turn-key stem cell collect-process-store program and associated Intellectual Property utilizing our proprietary products and services to create processing and storage facilities.” Arnone further stated, “In 2018 we look forward to expanding our US based physician network, patient adipose tissue and stem cell storages, increasing our global laboratory licensing program and continuing an organization-wide initiative to create new products and optimize our internal quality systems and processes.”
In 2018, management intends to continue its focus on increasing revenue, reducing costs, expanding our international licensing program and assisting our affiliate(s), Baoxin Asia Pacific Biotechnology Co, LTD (Baoxin) with establishing two new laboratory and therapy centers in Beijing and Shanghai to cover the regenerative medicine needs of China. Our plan includes assisting our partners with establishing a physician education facility in China to promote the use of ATGRAFT as a natural cosmetic filler, and as a preferred material to the artificial fillers currently used in cosmetic applications. We also plan to finalize and submit an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for our ATCellTM product to the U.S. FDA to support our cellular platform and regenerative medicine services.
