About Sernova

Sernova Corp. is a clinical stage health-sciences company focused on commercializing medical technologies. Sernova is developing a platform technology based on the Cell Pouch™, Sertolin™ and therapeutic cells, for a number of chronic diseases, including insulin-dependent diabetes as a first indication and other cell therapies such as for parathyroid disease, haemophilia, and Parkinson's disease. Sernova's goals for the Cell Pouch™ for diabetes include increasing the number of patients currently treated with intraportal delivery of donor islets and to provide a safe environment for sources of unlimited insulin-secreting cells such as insulin-producing stem cells and xenogeneic cells. This vision combined with local anti-rejection protection of the cells could enable millions of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes to be treated without limitation to availability of cells.
