NEWS

During each step, prescribed types and amounts

of growth factors, growth media, and supplements

direct pluripotent stem cells to progress along the

differentiation pathway until they become PEC-01 cells.

Once implanted under the skin of a patient, PEC-01 cells,

which are contained within an implantation device, have

been designed to mature into functional beta cells and

other cells of the islet that control blood glucose levels.

Vertex anticipates the acquisition will close later

this year. ViaCyte has received support for its research

from JDRF and the California Institute of Regenerative

Medicine and has established collaborative partnerships

with leading companies to advance its therapies for T1D.

Vertex is a global biotechnology company that

invests in scientific innovation to create transformative

medicines for people with serious diseases. Founded in

1989 in Cambridge, Mass., Vertex's global headquarters

is now located in Boston's Innovation District and its

international headquarters is in London.
