Vesta Therapeutics is developer of cell therapeutics for liver repair and regeneration.

Vesta's technology is centered on the isolation, expansion, and cryopreservation of liver cells (human hepatocytes) obtained from organ donor livers that are not suitable for whole organ transplantation. The company is also working on isolating populations of stem and progenitor cells, immature cells that are committed to the liver lineage, but do not yet express most mature liver cell functions. The stem or progenitor cells are much more proliferative compared to mature hepatocytes and are expanding the use of a single donor organ to treat hundreds or even thousands of patients.

Vesta has alliances with Clinical Data Inc, Cytonet GmbH & Co. KG, Icoria, Inc, National Institutes of Health, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
