09:04 EDTBTXBioTime unit receives OpRegen preclinical safety and efficacy study results
BioTime, HBL Hadasit Bio-Holdings and Cell Cure Neurosciences announced that Cell Cure has received the final results of a series of extensive preclinical safety and efficacy studies of its development-stage product designated OpRegen, which is intended for use in the treatment of dry form age-related macular degeneration. These studies were conducted by Cell Cure and contract research organizations in preparation for an IND filing with the Food and Drug Administration for a Phase 1/2a study in patients with geographic atrophy, the severe stage of dry-AMD. OpRegen is intended to be administered into the subretinal space of patients as a suspension of cells to treat this leading cause of blindness. The company said, "The protection of the animal’s vision from decay was dose dependent. As an additional indicator of therapeutic potential, the number of cone photoreceptors, which are responsible for fine vision in humans and are degenerating in the macula of dry-AMD patients, was found to remain constant over an extended period in the animal model.”
