StemBioSys Inc. has received approval for a patent that expands coverage of technology licensed from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

StemBioSys CEO Bob Hutchens said the patent approval represents an "important step" for the company as it moves toward commercializing its technology.

The "Maintenance and Propagation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells" patent - U.S. patent 8,961,955 - is an extension of the company's core high-performance micro environment technology, which enhances the isolation, expansion and delivery of various types of stem cells. The new patent covers application of the HPME technology for bone healing applications. This is an area that StemBioSys is actively pursuing as one of many potential therapeutic applications for the technology.
