Scientists and journalists agree: Tissue engineering is about to become the defining key in medical technology of the 21st century.

TICEBA - Tissue-Engineering


With the help of tissue engineering it will become possible to "repair" body tissue and organs with adult stem cells and thereby restore their natural function or maintain them over longer periods than previously possible.

Up to the end of the 90's, tissue engineering research was regarded by the general public as an unknown quantity. For journalists it was at best a term they had only heard of! Spring 1998 saw the breakthrough:

With the release of the first product of tissue engineering by the FDA, the US Licensing Authority, the revolutionary discipline provided proof of its applicability.

However, this was only the beginning. At a few selected scientific centres worldwide, for example in the USA, practical experiments have already been carried out on reproducing various tissues, organ parts or even whole organs. This procedure is now well on the way to becoming medical normality.

In future, the availability of our own healthy stem cells will be the key factor to take advantage of new, innovative therapies for malignant or degenerative conditions.

Autologous adult stem cells will be needed, since they generate a highly significant advantage with regard to any therapeutic opportunity opening up in the future.

Clinical Trials

We are now also recruiting patients for further clinical studies in phase I/IIa with allogeneic ABCB5-positive (ABCB5+) mesenchymal stem cells for the following indications: chronic venous ulcers (CVU), diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD).

Besides the authorization to manufacture a human medicinal product in accordance with § 13 (1) of the German Medicinal Products Act (AMG) for autologous mesenchymal stem cells, TICEBA is also authorized to manufacture a medicinal product for allogeneic mesenchymal as well as allogeneic limbal ABCB5 + stem cells following a recent extension.
