Cellular Biomedicine Group, a biomedicine company engaged in the development of new treatments for degenerative and cancerous diseases, announced today the launching of their pre-clinical study on human adipose derived mesenchymal progenitor cell (haMPC) therapy for asthma. The study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of haMPCs to treat severe asthma.

The pre-clinical study will be conducted by Shanghai First People's Hospital, a leading teaching hospital affiliated with Shanghai Jiaotong University. Professor Zhou Xin, director of the hospital's respiratory department and chairperson of Respiratory Diseases Division of Shanghai Medical Association, will lead the study as Principal Investigator.

"Asthma places a significant burden on families and communities in China. With 300 million people worldwide and over 30 million people in China suffering from asthma without effective therapies, this disease represents a meaningful unmet medical need. We are very excited to be developing a cellular medicine solution that may have the potential to improve the quality of life for millions of people in China and globally." said Dr. Wei (William) Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Cellular Biomedicine Group.
