amarantus bioscience holding (AMBS) Details

Amarantus BioScience Holdings, Inc., a biotechnology company, engages in discovering and developing treatments and diagnostics for diseases associated with neurodegeneration and apoptosis. Its lead therapeutic program Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor (MANF) is a targeted therapeutic to address the underlying programmed cell death (apoptosis) associated with a range of devastating human disorders with a priority to identify drug able orphan indications, including Retinitis Pigmentosa. The company’s principal products in development include the lymphocyte proliferation (LymPro) test, a diagnostic blood test for Alzheimer’s disease; and Eltoprazine, a small molecule drug candidate, which is used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease medication Levadopa-Induced Dyskinesia and Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders that is in Phase II clinical trials. It also develops NuroPro, a neurodegenerative disease diagnostic platform with application in Parkinson’s disease; BC-SeraPro, an oncology diagnostic platform with application in breast cancer; and PhenoGuard platform for neurrotrophic factor discovery. The company was formerly known as Amarantus Bioscience, Inc. and changed its name to Amarantus Bioscience Holdings, Inc. in April 2013. Amarantus Bioscience Holdings, Inc. was founded in 2008 and is based in San Francisco, California.

Amarantus BioScience Holdings, Inc. Announces Positive Effects of Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-Derived Neurotrophic Factor

Amarantus BioScience Holdings Inc. announced positive effects of Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor (MANF) for the protection from vision loss in an animal model of retinitis pigmentosa (RP). MANF was discovered utilizing Amarantus' proprietary PhenoGuard(TM) Protein Discovery Engine. The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of protecting visual acuity by a single intravitreal injection of MANF in the rd10/rd10 genetic mouse model of RP. These animals carry a spontaneous missense point mutation in Pde6b (cGMP phosphodiesterase 6B, rod receptor, beta polypeptide). Mutations in this gene are found in human autosomal recessive RP. Visual acuity was determined by measuring the spatial frequency threshold by optokinetic tracking. This method allows for a non-invasive assessment of visual acuity in rodents and higher species, including humans. A single intravitreal administration of MANF after the onset of retinal degeneration on Day 31 resulted in a statistically significant protective effect on visual acuity on Day 38 and Day 45, as compared to vehicle treated animals. This is the first observation of MANF providing a functional benefit on vision in a model of RP. These data complement previously announced effects of MANF on preserving retinal morphology in RP models. The experiments were conducted at a ophthalmology contract research laboratory. MANF (Mesencephalic-Astrocyte-derived Neurotrophic Factor) is believed to have broad potential because it is a naturally-occurring protein produced by the body for the purpose of reducing and preventing apoptosis (cell death) in response to injury or disease, via the unfolded protein response. By manufacturing MANF and administering it to the body, Amarantus is seeking to use a regenerative medicine approach to assist the body with higher quantities of MANF when needed. Amarantus is the front-runner and primary holder of intellectual property (IP) around MANF, and is initially focusing on the development of MANF-based protein therapeutics.
