For the millions of individuals suffering from diabetes, there may finally be a solution through stem cell therapy. SERAXIS’ team of top scientists has successfully developed state-of-the-art technologies for the treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes. The patented stem cell derived-replacement therapy, SR-01 is able to normalize blood glucose over a long term in animal models of diabetes and will soon be tested in the clinic.
SERAXIS, INC., a regenerative medicine biotech company was launched in 2013 and operates from the Germantown Innovation Center, Germantown, Maryland. Its name SERAXIS (SER-AXIS) originates from the words serum and praxis (from Greek, putting a theory into practice) to reflect the company’s mission to develop a clinical treatment for use in medicine.

SERAXIS cell therapy, SR-01 is intended to provide long-term blood glucose regulation in adult type-1 diabetics, removing dependence on insulin injections. It is anticipated that when SR-01 is implanted, it will release insulin and/or glucagon in response to variations of blood glucose, causing blood glucose control at levels comparable to a non-diabetic adult.
