LyGenesis, Inc., a biotechnology company developing innovative technology for organ regeneration, announced today that they have raised $3 million in Series A financing from Juvenescence, Ltd. LyGenesis’ technology uses lymph nodes as bioreactors to regrow functioning organs within a patient’s own body. The financing will enable LyGenesis to complete the final preclinical work required to enable human clinical trials, which will initially focus on patients with end stage liver disease.
LyGenesis, Inc. is an organ regeneration company enabling a patient’s own lymph nodes to be used as bioreactors to regrow functioning ectopic organs. Our initial target organ for clinical development is liver regeneration, with a focus on helping patients with end stage liver disease (ESLD). Instead of one donor organ treating one patient, LyGenesis enables one donor organ to treat dozens of patients. Instead of major surgery, LyGenesis uses outpatient endoscopy for transplantation of donor cells, which grow and become a functioning ectopic organ.
