Cytori´s history- the years 2000-05

Written by
Article- History untill 2005.   Cytori became Cytori on July 11 2005 when the name change from MacroPore Biosurgery became official. Before that date, MacroPore obviously had some history too. That history started in 1997 when the company was founded by Chris Calhoun, Stefan Lemperle and Ralph Holmes. Holmes was a surgeon who left relatively soon thereafter to become CEO…

Reflections on Cytori- the years 2006-11

Written by
MacroPore was from an investors viewpoint- kind of "the dark side" of Cytori- not only because of the failed Medtronic partnership on bio-resorbable implants, but also because of excessive option-plans and failed guidances on revenues etc. The preceeding article "History" was a more objective article and facts driven- what follows is surely also "facts driven", but has definitely a more subjective colour,…

Cytori- its Board Members-past and present

Written by
First- some historical development- Untill 2007 Cytori´s Board of Directors was more of an "good ol boys" club, although by SEC rules considered " pre-dominantly independent". The father-in-law of CEO Calhoun and Chairman of the Board, Marshall Cox "retired" in that year, meaning that the stock awards for BOD members could finally also be reduced to a "normal" level as happened…

Cytori- its Partners-past and present-Roche

Written by
Second partner I would like to present here is Hoffmann La Roche- short -Roche. In the same conference call early 2009 when Calhoun talked about his partners, he described the proprietary enzyme supplier as a "unnamed major US pharma partner, which we dont want to disclose for competitive reasons"- just to make things easy.(LOL) Roche is a top notch biotech, which is illustrated…

Cytori- its Partners-past and present-Astellas

Written by
Actually Astellas is of course a little more than just a candidate, since on December 7, 2010 they took an equity participation in Cytori, with the first right to negotiate a deal on liver regeneration. Cytori explained this in a note as follows: Such a partnership would likely revolve around what we refer to as our Version 2.0 Celution® and…

Mechanisms of Therapeutic Action of ADRCs

Written by
In the Wall Street press one always reads, when the theme "stem cells" comes up, what the difference in adult- and embryonic cell differentiation potential is and what these magic things all can do, or what they cant do.

There seem to be several misconceptions or maybe just different opinions about the ability for Cytori to protect the IP, which went into the designing- and engineering of the Celution range of products. Thereto different opinions about the technical superiority of the same system. I do not think the following write-up will eliminate differences of opinion, but provides sufficient additional…
