The University of Pennsylvania Key Developments
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. Enters into One-Year Research Collaboration Agreement with University of Pennsylvania
Sep 15 15
BioRestorative Therapies, Inc. announced that the company has entered into a one-year research collaboration agreement with the University of Pennsylvania. The research is intended to develop the company's ThermoStem® Program by advancing the understanding of brown adipose biology and its role in metabolic disorders. Brown fat is recognized as playing a role in caloric burning, as well as potentially regulating glucose and lipid levels. The research collaboration will focus on studying the epigenetic regulation of brown fat transcription and metabolism by nuclear receptors and mechanisms related to obesity-associated insulin resistance and diabetes. It has recently been demonstrated that motif-altering single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) cause differential PPARg binding associated in elevated HDL levels and other metabolic syndrome parameters. Understanding the role that SNPs play upon an individual's genome has the potential to improve the risk/benefit ratio for patients undergoing antidiabetic therapy, thereby allowing for personalized pharmacogenomics. The laboratory of Mitchell Lazar, MD, PhD, the Sylvan Eisman Professor of Medicine and Genetics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, will work with BRT to characterize these brown fat cells.
