    Immune Protection

    Immune Protection

    Sernova has multiple options for protection of cells within the Cell Pouch from immune system attack. The cells can be protected using medications that protect the cells from immune attack. There are polymer encapsulation technologies to protect the cells from the immune system. There are also developing methodologies to make cells unrecognizable to the immune system. These latter two technologies may not require medications to protect the cells from the immune system.

      Company History

      Sernova was founded in 2006 - London, Ontario;


      2006

      On September 20, the Company announced it had received TSX Venture Exchange approval to change its name to Sernova Corp.


      2005

      In April the Board of Directors brought in a new management team to find viable research and development projects suitable for the Company. On May 16, 2006 the Company announced it had closed a joint venture agreement with Sertonex Inc., a private medical research company based in London Ontario, and Sertoli Technology Inc., a private intellectual property company based in Tucson Arizona. The joint venture allows the Company to own the exclusive rights to the research efforts and intellectual property related to a potential breakthrough treatment for diabetes. That project is now the Company's main focus.


      2004

      On May 4th, Pheromone Sciences Corp announced the conclusion of negotiations with HealthWatchSystems, Inc. of Sarasota, Florida for the sale of all patents, intellectual property and supplies related to the Fertility Monitor. At the company's annual and special shareholder meeting on August 25, 2004, the sale was accepted by the shareholders and the asset sale agreement was then closed on August 31, 2004. The monitor is now sold under the name OV-Watch and Sernova receives royalties on the net sales.


      2000

      In February, through a Share Exchange Agreement, PCS was acquired by Mecca Medi-Tech Inc. (MEC), a venture capital pool company trading on the Canadian Venture Exchange. The combined new entity was named Pheromone Sciences Corporation.

      Pheromone Sciences first commercial product brought to market was the PSC Fertility Monitor. The monitor set a new benchmark in family planning and provides a more reliable and user-friendly approach to natural, cycle-based fertility status measurement. The PSC Fertility Monitor is a non-invasive method of predicting ovulation and the fertile window of women through the measurements of sweat ion changes on the surface of the skin. It is a small wristwatch-like device, containing an interactive microprocessor combined with a biochemical sensor allowing it to produce data that predicts the fertility status of the user (not-fertile, fertile or ovulating). The computed results can then be viewed on the LCD screen of the device and/or the user can be alerted via optional audio signals.


      1997

      PCS succeeded in characterizing a human (female) pheromone, naming it PSC Synchronin.


      1992

      Pheromone Sciences Corporation (PCS) was a private corporation founded by Doug Marett, M.Sc. in 1992.
