Ryan Mitchell, PhD and Director of Business Development, will showcase advances in Satellos’ new muscle regeneration technology on April 25-26 in Gouvieux, France
Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 21, 2022) – Satellos Bioscience Inc. (TSXV:MSCL) (“satellites“or the”society“), a regenerative medicine company focused on developing therapies 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 the groundbreaking science of Satellos at of an upcoming European conference Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) Workshop on Muscle Formation, Maintenance, Regeneration and Pathology The workshop will take place in Gouvieux, France, April 24-29, 2022.
During the workshop, Dr. Mitchell will present a poster on Satellos’ unique and proprietary work in skeletal muscle regeneration and the company’s progress in inventing and developing drugs that reset the innate ability of the body to repair itself. At the center of the presentation will be an update on Satellos’ lead drug program focused on treating Duchenne, a fatal genetic disease with insufficient treatment options.
“EMBO is one of the most prestigious life science organizations on the planet, and we are thrilled to have Ryan showcase our transformational work in this highly regarded workshop,” said Frank Gleeson, Founder and CEO of Satellites. “At Satellos, we are developing an entirely new class of drugs that aim to restore the innate process of muscle repair and regeneration in people with Duchenne and a range of other dystrophies. We are excited to share our science and our developments with the many leading experts in skeletal muscle development, homeostasis, regeneration and pathology who will participate in this premier forum.”
Duchenne is a fatal genetic disease that slowly and progressively robs people of muscle strength and function. Diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately 1 in 5,000 live male births, Duchenne is caused by a change in the dystrophin gene. Dr. Michael Rudnicki discovered 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 cope 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 the development of life-changing drugs to treat degenerative muscle conditions. Our scientists have discovered what we believe is a previously unknown root cause of skeletal muscle degeneration. One that has the potential to transform the way muscle disorders are treated. Our Scientific Founder, Dr. Michael Rudnicki, is a thought leader who discovered and demonstrated how muscle stem cells regulate muscle repair and growth throughout life. He showed how defects in a process known as stem cell “polarity”, which controls how muscle stem cells divide to create muscle progenitor cells, lead to failure of muscle regeneration in Duchenne and potentially to other muscle disorders. Because of this continued 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 cumulative damage to their muscles. Satellos’ core program is focused on the development of an oral therapeutic drug (i.e. a pill) to correct muscle stem cell polarity and restore the body’s innate muscle repair and regeneration process. . We believe that our unique therapeutic approach represents a potential modifying treatment for Duchenne disease and other dystrophies, offering new hope to patients. To extend our programs to other degenerative muscle conditions or disorders, Satellos has created a proprietary discovery platform, MyoReGenX™, which we use to identify pathological situations in which muscle stem cell polarity and regeneration deficits occur and amenable to therapeutic treatment.
