ViaCyte's potential diabetes 'cure' gets another $6m to move into human trials

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

ViaCyte's stem cell-based diabetes product, which the San Diego-based company has said could reduce or eliminate the need for pharmaceutical insulin, has moved into clinical trials earlier than expected, helped by $6 million in new funds. This brings the total invested by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to $7 million, while the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has financed nearly $40 million in preclinical work for the VC-01 therapeutic and device combination product.
