PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. PMCBa biotechnology company specializing in the development of cellular therapies for cancer and diabetes using its live cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®, today announced that the leadership team will attend the 15th International Conference on Advanced Diabetes Technologies and Treatments (ATTD) to be held April 27-30, 2022 in Barcelona, Spain. ATTD is a scientific conference that was established in 2008. Conference meetings have become the world’s most renowned forum for showcasing developments in new diabetes technologies and treatments.
PharmaCyte CEO Kenneth L. Waggoner said, “This annual conference is where clinicians, diabetes care providers, researchers, industry leaders and investors come together to share knowledge. and develop collaborations. As we continue to expand our product portfolio, developing a treatment for type 1 diabetes and insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes that can essentially serve as an “artificial pancreas” is of vital importance to PharmaCyte. Our treatment based on live cell encapsulation offers real hope for future development in the field of diabetes.
Major topics covered at the conference include Decision Support Systems, Data-Driven Decision Support Systems and Artificial Intelligence, Closed-Loop Systems and Algorithms, Artificial Pancreas, Pumps glucose sensors, implantable pumps and sensors, new insulin analogues and new insulin delivery systems. , devices focused on the prevention of diabetes, IT in the service of medicine; telemedicine, software and other technologies, advanced medical technologies for use in hospitals and more.
In addition to attending presentations and discussions by leading professionals in the field, PharmaCyte’s leadership team will meet with members of its International Diabetes Consortium to launch its new diabetes initiatives.

About PharmaCyte Biotech
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. is a biotechnology company developing cell therapies for cancer and diabetes based on a proprietary cellulose-based live cell encapsulation technology known as “Cell-in-a-Box®This technology is used as a platform on which therapies for several types of cancer and diabetes are developed.
PharmaCyte’s cancer therapy encapsulates genetically engineered human cells that convert an inactive chemotherapy drug into its active or “cancer-fighting” form. For pancreatic cancer, these encapsulated cells are implanted into the blood supply to the patient’s tumor as close to the tumor site as possible. Once implanted, a chemotherapy drug that is normally activated in the liver (ifosfamide) is given intravenously at one-third the normal dose. Ifosfamide is transported through the circulatory system to where the encapsulated cells have been implanted. When ifosfamide passes through the pores of the capsules, the living cells inside act like a “bio-artificial liver” and activate the chemotherapy drug at the cancer site. This “targeted chemotherapy” has been shown to be effective and safe to use in previous clinical trials and we believe has little or no treatment-related side effects.
PharmaCyte’s therapy for type 1 diabetes and insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes involves encapsulating a human cell line that has been genetically engineered to produce and release insulin in response to blood sugar levels in the human body. Cell line encapsulation will be done using the Cell-in-a-Box® Technology. Once the encapsulated cells are implanted in a diabetic patient, we anticipate that they will function as a “bio-artificial pancreas” for the purpose of insulin production.
