FibroBiologics Files Patent Application Covering Fibroblast-based Technology for the Potential Treatment of Lupus

HOUSTON, March 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FibroBiologics (Nasdaq: FBLG) (“FibroBiologics”), a clinical-stage biotechnology company with 150+ patents issued and pending with a focus on the development of therapeutics and potential cures for chronic diseases using fibroblasts and fibroblast-derived materials, announced the filing of a patent application with the United States Patent Office covering the use of FibroBiologics’ fibroblast cell-based technology for the potential treatment of Lupus.

“Our scientists continue to explore clinical opportunities to treat chronic diseases using fibroblast cells, which are natural immune modulators. Successfully leveraging fibroblasts to achieve a durable immune modulation may serve as a potential treatment for Lupus, a debilitating autoimmune disease,” noted Founder & CEO of FibroBiologics, Pete O’Heeron.

“The immune modulation capacity of fibroblasts shows early promise in effectively regulating the expansion of pathogenic immune cells and their expression of harmful levels of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, and complement factors. Fibroblast cells may offer a broad range of potential clinical benefits for patients suffering from chronic disease,” added Chief Scientific Officer of FibroBiologics, Hamid Khoja, Ph.D.
