BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Partners with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc. for NurOwn Production in Phase II ALS Clinical Trial
Apr 8 13
BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics announced that Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Inc. has entered into an agreement to provide cGMP-compliant clean room facilities for production of BrainStorm's NurOwn(TM) stem cell candidate during its upcoming Phase II ALS trial in the USA. The company's Phase II trial, to be launched in the second half of 2013 pending FDA approval, will be conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital, the University of Massachusetts Hospital and the Mayo Clinic. The Connell and O'Reilly Cell Manipulation Core Facility at Dana-Farber will produce NurOwn for the MGH and UMass Hospital clinical sites. Results of a Phase I/II clinical study of BrainStorm's NurOwn technology in patients with ALS were recently presented at the 65(th) Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. The data demonstrated a significantly slower decline in overall clinical and respiratory function, as measured by the ALS Functional Rating Score (ALSFRS-R) and Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) score respectively, in the six patients that received an intrathecal injection of the cells in the six months following treatment, as compared to the three months preceding treatment.
