The company needs to decide whether to commercialise a product (i.e. sourcing cells from a donor that can be applied universally) or a service (i.e. providing patients with their own stem cells). This choice drastically changes the business model the companies have to adapt. Notably, further organisation is required in the latter example as providing a service of this kind necessitates coordination with hospitals and healthcare professionals.
A final obstacle for translation into the clinic of regenerative medicine products is the ‘valley of death’, defined as the lack of funding between early pre-clinical to successfully completion of Phase II clinical trials. The fact that regenerative medicine is seen as an expensive and risky process with long term timescale makes the investments from the private sector even more difficult to get.
How are companies and institution bringing regenerative medicine to life?
