It is Neuroplast BVs commitment to ensure that their lead therapeutic interventions are commercialized as soon as possible to bring benefit to public health by improving the lives of patients. To realize this ambition Neuroplast intensively collaborates with renowned academic and institutional centers of excellence. Neuroplast wants to focus at those indications, which have not only an enormous impact on the quality of life of the patients suffering from these diseases but also indications for which no treatment is available to slow down the progression, to stop the progression or even reverse the effects of the progression of these diseases. Special of interest are the diseases and disorders of the central nervous system.

Based on its own intellectual property, Neuroplast BV developed a platform (AMARYLLIS) to produce Neuro-Cells under a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) quality system. Innovative is the automated chain of procedures from collection of autologous stem cells to the release of the end product in this unique platform
Neuroplast’s preparations are highly condensed autologous anti-inflammatory bone marrow-derived stem cell preparations, manufactured, released and re-administered within 6-12 hours after the actual bone marrow collection, in order to stop or slow down the acute and/or episodic inflammatory processes, responsible for neuronal cell death. From the results of the freedom-to-operate studies, and the scientific literature database, it was concluded that Neuroplast’s finding is novel & inventive, and relevant to the industry. Therefore, as part of Neuroplast’s intellectual property, different patents are filed to secure the processing of Neuro-Cells. These patents covers the stem cell preparation from all kind of sources protects Neuroplast’s intellectual property.
