Company Overview of CellProthera SAS

Company Overview

CellProthera SAS operates as a medical biotechnology company in France. It focuses on the development of a stem cell therapy for the regeneration of myocardial tissue allowing the prevention of chronic heart failure following acute myocardial infarct by injecting a cell graft containing autologous adult stem cells sampled directly from the patient. The company was founded in 2008 and is based in Mulhouse, France.

CellProThera and BioCardia Sign Agreement to Partner on the EXCELLENT Trial

CellProThera and BioCardia announced an agreement to partner on the EXCELLENT (Expanded Cell Endocardiac Transplantation) Trial, controlled Phase I/IIb study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of in vitro expanded peripheral blood CD34+ stem cells output by the StemXpand(R) Automated Process and delivered via the BioCardia Helix(TM) Transendocardial Delivery System. The agreement calls for payments to BioCardia, which are creditable to a future clinical development program, and payments to CellProThera for timely completion of the Phase II study. The trial will study patients with an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and a left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) remaining below or equal to 45% after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and stent(s) implantation versus standard of care. The study will encompass 44 patients treated at up to eight centers in the United Kingdom and France and followed for six months. Co-principal investigators are Jerome Roncalli, MD, PhD, Department of Cardiology, University Hospital of Toulouse, France, and David E. Newby, MD, PhD, University Centre for Cardiovascular Science of Edinburgh, Scotland. The primary endpoint of the study is no treatment emergent major adverse cardiac events (MACE) at 30 days post-procedure. Secondary endpoints will assess the first efficacy trends, the viability of the infarcted segments, safety of the Helix transendocardial delivery procedure and quality of life. In order to simplify and standardize the cell graft production process, CellProThera developed an Automated Process using a cell expansion automate StemXpand(R) and disposable kit StemPack(R). This enables GMP production of as many stem cells as those obtained with one leukapheresis, starting from a whole autologous blood sample simply drawn after G-CSF mobilization, thus avoiding leukapheresis sessions. In pre-clinical studies, the expanded CD34+ cells (Protheracytes(R)) have demonstrated the same therapeutic efficacy as naive cells with no chromosomic alteration, toxicity or tumorogenicity. The Helix Transendocardial Delivery System is a steerable, two-catheter system that enables delivery of biologic therapies to the heart muscle from within the chamber of the heart. The system's unique performance advantages include crossing the aortic valve over a wire to prevent damage; enhanced navigation using the company's steerable Morph(R) guiding catheter; a helical needle which screws into the myocardium for stable delivery; and the use of contrast at the base of the needle to confirm tissue engagement.
