3D-Printed Human Brain Organelle Model System Presented At Meeting.

TORRANCE, Calif., October 31, 2018 -Celprogen Inc., announced it has finished printing 3D brains from brain stem cells for studying neurological disease stages.

A poster on this work was presented at the Neuroscience meeting in San Diego, Calif., on November 3.

The 3D printed human brain was used to study "The role of Microglia activation and deactivation in neurological diseases."

Celprogen identified and characterized 11 lead compounds that are potential drug candidates for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and glioblastoma patients.

The invention relates to 3D organ printing programs at Celprogen that identify potential future use in transplant of major organ systems.

Celprogen is also validating the 3D human printed heart, pancreas, liver, hair follicle, and brain for toxicology and drug discovery research.
