MissionIR News - Seeking Alpha Publishes Article Featuring VistaGen Therapeutics

Atlanta, United States (IBwire.com - January 24, 2013) MissionIR would like to highlight VistaGen Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: VSTA). VistaGen Therapeutics is a biotechnology company applying stem cell technology for drug rescue applications, including predictive toxicology and drug metabolism screening. Drug rescue combines human stem cell technology with modern medicinal chemistry to generate novel, safer, proprietary chemical variants ("drug rescue variants") of once-promising drug candidates that have been discontinued during late-stage preclinical development due to heart or liver safety concerns.

Seeking Alpha recently published the following article featuring VistaGen Therapeutics: http://seekingalpha.com/article/1120881

The article titled “Supreme Court Decision Is Bullish For Stem Cell Companies” reviews the recent high court decision that allows medical universities and science foundations to receive federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. Now supported by the federal government, the stem cell industry is anticipated to be a $6.6 billion market by 2016, more than 50% greater than its present size.

Peter Harengel, author of the article, provided an overview of the progress taking place in the industry as companies continue to move forward with their stem cell research. VistaGen Therapeutics, for instance, recently announced a significant advance in its development of LiverSafe 3D™, a human liver cell-based bioassay system designed to predict liver toxicity and drug metabolism before animal or human testing. As with its CardioSafe 3D™ product, this bioassay system was designed to be used with modern medicinal chemistry to generate safer, proprietary chemical variants ("drug rescue variants") of once-promising drug candidates, as well as identify product failures earlier in the cost curve.

Companies active in stem cell research are now much more attractive for a variety of factors. The election in Washington, D.C. has brought clarity to the health care sector, overall. The major players know what to expect and can now move forward. The recent Supreme Court decision will now focus the attention of many on stem cell research as more federal funding will enter the sector. Also of significance is that the political uncertainty is gone regarding stem cell research.

2013 is poised to introduce a new flood of excitement in this up-and-coming health care market.
