There exists a multi-million dollar opportunity
to supply the medical community with a new and superior source of stem cells for
transplantation in the treatment of cancer and many other serious diseases. The
primary mission of NuStem Technologies, Inc (NuStem) is to meet this need through the
collection, processing, cryogenic storage and sale of stem cells derived from
the umbilical cord of a newborn baby following a live birth.
Stem cells are life sustaining precursor cells that develop into red and
white blood cells, and platelets. In the treatment of cancer, chemotherapy and
radiation destroy not only the cancer cells but also these blood precursors.
Without healthy blood cells to supply oxygen, fight infection, and aid in
blood clotting, the person's health and life are threatened. This becomes a
major factor that inhibits physicians from being more aggressive in treating
cancer. A "rescue" of new stem cells is needed so that the cure itself does
compromise the patient.
Benefits for Participants
Only about 30% of patients worldwide that need a bone marrow transplant have
a compatible family donor. Of the remaining 70%, only 25% of these find a
suitable match after searching the bone marrow registries. In the United States,
more than 50,000 bone marrow transplants are needed each year, but 15,000 people
die because an acceptable match could not be found.
NuStem will provide a more effective and less expensive alternative to
traditional bone marrow transplants. Sales are likely to increase
dramatically in at least three other areas: (1) the replacement market for bone
marrow since cord blood stem cells are safer, more effective, and less
expensive; (2) new markets from the aggressive treatment of cancer and other
diseases; and, (3) the international market that is at least the same size, if
not bigger, as the U.S. market.
Management projects that only 3% of prospective patients search NuStem's
database each month in years 3 through 5. As the size of the bank grows to
50,000 units the statistical probability of being able to provide a match grows
to 94%. In the fifth year of operations NuStem projects that 21,040 units will
be placed at $15,000 per unit.
Even with this conservative approach, the potential profit is tremendous:
NuStem requires total capital infusion of $34 million over the first 18
months. NuStem Technologies is seeking individuals, groups, and entities that
would like to be involved in bringing this life saving technology to the
marketplace and reap the financial benefits of their participation. Additional
materials and a detailed explanation of the opportunity are available.
