Orlando, FL (December 21, 2018) – CAREstream America, a premier product and services distributor for pain management, regenerative and aesthetic specialties, announces the acquisition of Catalyst Sales & Marketing, a regenerative medicine solutions provider based in Houston, TX. Effective December 21, 2018, this acquisition significantly expands CAREstream America’s product portfolio and related offerings to its customers, particularly those focused on regenerative medicine.
CAREstream America plans to merge Catalyst’s comprehensive regenerative medicine portfolio with its existing product lines and revolutionize its vast physician support network under another newly acquired endeavor called Axiom Therapies.

Catalyst CEO, Bill Cramer remarked, “This is a pivotal moment for the regenerative landscape and this opportunity establishes our position at the forefront of this advancing healthcare evolution.”

Axiom Therapies empowers clinicians to provide next-generation, cell-enhanced treatments founded on the principles of evidence-based regenerative medicine. Axiom Therapies will focus on Orthopedics, Pain and Rheumatology, with a full complement of regenerative therapy solutions including: APIC-A2M, PRP, PRFM, Exosomes, Amniotic Fluid, Bone Marrow- and Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapies, and VitalityRED for ED.

Regarding the industry-shaping merger, Chairman of the Board, Dr. Allen Sperry said, “documenting clinical outcomes of our therapies to ensure the optimum therapeutic regimen and protocols is our mandate.” He further mentioned, “Blake Petrunick, Bill Cramer, Jordan Jozwick and Brandon Cusick are as experienced and knowledgeable as any leadership team in this business today.”
