SATELLOS BIOSCIENCE INC. TO PRESENT GAME CHANGING SCIENCE AT UPCOMING EUROPEAN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY ORGANIZATION WORKSHOP
- Ryan Mitchell, PhD and Director of Business Development to highlight advancements with Satellos’ novel muscle regeneration technology on April X in Gouvieux, France
TORONTO, ONTARIO, APRIL 25-26, 2022 – Satellos Bioscience Inc. (TSXV: MSCL) (“Satellos” or the “Corporation”), a regenerative medicine company aimed at developing therapeutics that change the way degenerative muscle diseases are treated, is pleased to announce that Ryan Mitchell, PhD and Director of Business Development will be presenting a poster on Satellos’ game changing science during an upcoming European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) workshop on muscle formation, maintenance, regeneration and pathology. The workshop will take place in Gouvieux, France from April 24-29, 2022.
During the workshop Mr. Mitchell will be presenting a poster on Satellos’ unique and proprietary work in skeletal muscle regeneration, and the company’s advancements in inventing and developing medicines which reset the body’s innate ability for self-repair. Central to the presentation will be an update on Satellos’ lead drug program focused on treating Duchenne, a fatal genetic disease with insufficient treatment options.
“The EMBO is one of the most prestigious life sciences organizations on the planet, and we are very excited for Ryan to present our transformative work as a part of this highly regarded workshop,” said Satellos founder and CEO, Frank Gleeson. “At Satellos, we are developing an entirely novel category of medicines which aim to restore the body’s innate muscle repair and regeneration process in people living with Duchenne and a range of other dystrophies. We’re excited to share our science and developments with the many leading experts in skeletal muscle development, homeostasis, regeneration, and pathology that will be attending this prominent forum.”
Duchenne is a fatal genetic disease that slowly and progressively robs people of their muscle strength and function. Diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately one in 5,000 live male births, Duchenne is caused by a change in the dystrophin gene. It was discovered by Dr. Michael Rudnicki that muscle stem cells in people living with Duchenne are severely compromised in their ability to create the muscle progenitor cells upon which repair and regeneration depend. As a result, the muscles of Duchenne patients are unable to keep up with the continuous damage that accumulates throughout life, becoming progressively more damaged. No treatment exists today to correct this situation.
About Satellos Bioscience Inc.
Satellos is a biotechnology company dedicated to developing lifechanging medicines to treat degenerative muscle conditions. Our scientists discovered what we believe to be a previously unrecognized root cause of skeletal muscle degeneration. One which has the potential to transform how muscle disorders are treated. Our scientific founder, Dr. Michael Rudnicki, is a thought leader who discovered and has shown how muscle stem cells regulate muscle repair and growth throughout life. He has shown how defects in a process known as stem cell “polarity”, which controls how muscle stem cells divide to create muscle progenitor cells, lead to a failure of muscle regeneration in Duchenne and potentially other muscle disorders. As a result of this ongoing inability to produce sufficient numbers of new muscle cells, the muscles of people living with Duchenne are unable to keep up with and repair the continuous and accumulating damage their muscles experience. Satellos’ lead program is focused on developing an oral therapeutic drug (i.e., a pill) intended to correct muscle stem cell polarity and restore the body’s innate muscle repair and regeneration process. We believe our unique therapeutic approach represents a potential disease modifying treatment for Duchenne and other dystrophies, offering new hope to patients. To expand our programs to other degenerative muscle conditions or disorders, Satellos has created a proprietary discovery platform, MyoReGenX™, which we utilize to identify disease situations where deficits in muscle stem cell polarity and regeneration occur and are amenable to therapeutic treatment.
