A History of Excellence

Cytori is committed to developing and commercializing specialty therapeutics. Since 2002, Cytori has enabled researchers and clinicians to study and administer cell therapies using our novel Celution® System platform which harnesses the potential of stem and regenerative cells from adipose tissue. In 2017, Cytori strengthened its specialty therapeutics position by acquiring a nanomedicine platform technology that combines widely-known and prescribed chemotherapy agents, doxorubicin and docetaxel, both with liposomal encapsulation technology. This marriage of technologies has the potential to improve patient care for both life-debilitating and life-threatening conditions and diseases.
