Potential Advantages

There are significant limitations to the current therapies for treating a range of tissue and organ abnormalities, and there is a clear need for approaches that are safer, more effective and cost-efficient.

Tengion's technology has the potential to offer several major advantages over current best practice. Tengion neo-organs and tissues have the potential, once approved and commercially available, to:

  • Regenerate native-like tissue and restore function and structure
  • Reduce healthcare costs for organ failure while improving medical outcomes
    • Avoid the risk of organ rejection
    • Eliminate the burden and costs of immunosuppression
  • Provide meaningful clinical safety and efficacy advances versus existing alternatives
    • Reduce or eliminate other adverse effects of existing procedures
    • Shorten recovery time
  • Improve quality of life for patients and their families
