Capricor Therapeutics Company

Capricor Therapeutics is developing CAP-1002, a cardiac cell therapy consisting of allogeneic cardiosphere-derived cells. The cells are designed to function by releasing exosomes that are taken up largely by macrophages and T-cells and begin a cycle of repair.

Capricor on April 3 said it has begun providing CAP-1002 to patients with advanced COVID-19 under the compassionate use pathway. Two patients were treated last week at “a leading healthcare center” in Los Angeles, with additional patients planned in coming weeks. Capricor cited previously published preclinical data showing that CAP-1002 mitigated the release of anti-inflammatory cytokines as well as macrophage activation in a number of models of inflammation including sepsis and autoimmune diseases.
