Pluristem Therapeutics, Inc. Selects Cato Research Ltd. as Contract Research Organization

Pluristem Therapeutics Inc. announced it has selected Cato Research Ltd. as its contract research organization (CRO) for the German portion of the company's phase II trial in intermittent claudication (IC) under the auspices of the Paul-Ehrlich Institute (PEI). Cato will serve as Pluristem's applicant for its IC Clinical Trial Application to the PEI and to the ethics committees of the three study sites where the trials will be conducted. The trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Pluristem's PLacental eXpanded (PLX-PAD) cells in treating IC, a subset of peripheral artery disease (PAD). The prevalence of IC in the United States alone is approximately 14 million patients, representing a cost of approximately $2.5 billion annually to the healthcare system. In addition to Germany, Pluristem's multinational Phase II trial in IC will also include 11 sites in the United States and 2 sites in Israel with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already approving the United States portion of this study. The trial will enroll 150 patients in a randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled study evaluating two doses of either 150 or 300 million PLX cells given intramuscularly three months apart. The primary endpoint of the trial will be maximum walking distance achieved on a treadmill at 12 months.
