Early Stage Partners participated in the Series A early stage venture capital investment in Juventas Therapeutics, which is developing Stromal Derived Factor, or SDF-1, to repair damage to heart and other tissue. SDF-1 is a naturally occurring universal recruiter of a body's own stem cells to areas of damaged tissue. Juventas is demonstrating that the application of SDF-1 to injured tissue, long after the body's own repair mechanism has ceased producing SDF-1, can regenerate tissue by promoting new blood vessel formation and preventing ongoing cell death.
