About Athersys, Inc.

Athersys, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, engages in the discovery and development of therapeutic product candidates.

Product Candidates

The company's product development portfolio consists of MultiStem, a patented and proprietary stem cell product that it is developing as a treatment for multiple disease indications. In addition, the company is developing pharmaceuticals to treat indications, such as obesity, certain cognitive and attention disorders, and narcolepsy or other forms of excessive daytime sleepiness.


The company is developing a proprietary nonembryonic, allogeneic stem cell product candidate, MultiStem. MultiStem is being evaluated in two ongoing clinical trials, and has been authorized for use in a third clinical trial. MultiStem is a patented biologic product that is manufactured from human stem cells obtained from adult bone marrow. The product consists of a special class of human stem cells that have the ability to express a range of therapeutically relevant proteins and other factors, as well as form multiple cell types. The company is conducting the acute myocardial infarction clinical trial with its partner Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Angiotech), and the company completed phase I enrollment.

Working with independent investigators at various institutions, such as the University of Minnesota, the Cleveland Clinic, the National Institutes of Health, the Medical College of Georgia, the University of Oregon Health Sciences Center and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the company has studied MultiStem in a range of in vitro and animal models that reflect various types of human disease or injury, such as myocardial infarction, stroke, brain damage due to restricted blood flow in newborns, vascular disease, and bone marrow transplant support/ graft versus host disease (GVHD). In addition, the company is exploring, or intends to explore, the potential application of MultiStem in the treatment of a range of other conditions, such as certain blood or immune deficiencies and various autoimmune diseases.

The company has advanced MultiStem to clinical development stage in three areas: treatment of damage caused by myocardial infarction; support in the hematologic malignancy setting to reduce certain complications associated with traditional bone marrow or hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation; and treatment for stroke caused by a blockage of blood flow in the brain. In its phase I clinical trial, the company are exploring the use of MultiStem as a treatment for damage caused by myocardial infarction, or heart attack. Another area of focus is the use of MultiStem as adjunctive treatment for HSC/bone marrow transplant used as therapy in hematologic malignancy. A third focus of its regenerative medicine program is the use of MultiStem for the treatment of neurological injury as a result of ischemic stroke.

In December 2009, the company entered into a collaboration agreement with Pfizer Inc. (Pfizer) to develop and commercialize MutiStem for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) for the worldwide market.

Pharmaceutical Programs

The company is developing pharmaceutical treatments for obesity, which are compounds designed to act by stimulating a key receptor in the brain that regulates appetite and food intake — the 5HT2c receptor. The company initiated a drug development program focused on creating potent and selective compounds that stimulate the 5HT2c receptor, but that avoid the 5HT2b receptor and other receptors, such as 5HT2a.

In addition to its other programs, the company is independently developing novel, orally-active pharmaceuticals that are designed to improve wakefulness and promote cognitive abilities in patients that experience attention or cognitive deficits. The company is developing multiple classes of highly selective and potent compounds designed to block the H3 receptor and has established a program to develop non-stimulant, non-addictive, orally administered drugs for the treatment of narcolepsy or other conditions related to excessive daytime sleepiness.

The company intends to continue the study of H3 antagonist compounds that it is developing for potential applications in treating narcolepsy, excessive daytime sleepiness, chronic fatigue associated with certain disease conditions, such as Parkinson’s, certain attention or cognitive disorders, and other conditions. In addition, the company intends to conduct additional pharmacology and safety testing of certain compounds the company is developing, and is exploring potential partnering opportunities around this and other programs.

Other Key Technologies

In addition to its product development programs, the company developed its patented random activation of gene expression (RAGE) technology that provides it with the ability to produce human cell lines that express specific, biologically well validated drug targets without relying upon cloned and isolated gene sequences. It has entered into a collaboration with Bristol-Myers Squibb to provide cell lines expressing validated drug targets produced using its RAGE technology for compound screening and development.


Athersys, Inc. was founded in 1995.

SWOT Analysis

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis

Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:

  • How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
  • How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?

Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.

PESTEL Analysis

PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.

Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.

Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:

  • Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
  • Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
  • Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
  • Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
  • Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
  • Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?

IFE, EFE, IE Matrices

The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.

The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.

The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.

Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.

Porter Five Forces Analysis

The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:

  1. What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
  2. Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
  3. What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
  4. How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
  5. How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?

VRIO Analysis

VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:

  • Tangible resources
    • Financial
    • Physical
    • Technological
    • Organizational
  • Intangible resources
    • Human
    • Innovation and Creativity
    • Reputation
  • Organizational capabilities

The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:

  • Valuable?
  • Rare?
  • Costly to imitate?
  • Organized properly?
