Pluristem Life Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: PLRS) is a biotechnology company dedicated to the commercialization of allogeneic stem cell therapy products for the treatment of several severe degenerative, malignant and autoimmune disorders. The Company's first planned product, PLX-I, targets a $2 billion market and intends to resolve the global shortfall of matched tissue for bone marrow transplantation by improving the engraftment of umbilical cord blood (UCB). Pluristem's products are derived from mesenchymal stem cells obtained from the placenta and expanded in the Company's proprietary PluriX™ 3D bioreactor that imitates the natural microstructure of bone marrow and does not require supplemental growth factors or cytokines. Pluristem believes the resultant expanded cells are multipotent and able to differentiate into a variety of different cell types as well as being immune-privileged to protect the recipient from immunological reactions that often accompanies transplantation.
