09:55 EDTGERN, OSIR, BTX, CUR, ASTM, STEMSupreme Court turns down appeal over stem cell research, SCOTUSblog says
The Supreme Court turned down an appeal by scientists seeking to stop all studies on embryonic stem cells, according to SCOTUSblog. The Fly notes that companies engaged in the research, development, and commercialization of stem cell therapies include StemCells (STEM), Neuralstem (CUR), Aastrom Biosciences (ASTM) and Osiris Therapeutics (OSIR). Also, earlier this morning, BioTime (BTX) entered into an agreement to acquire the intellectual property, including patents and patent applications, and other assets related to Geron's (GERN) human embryonic stem cell programs.

07:33 EDTCURNeuralstem announces preclinical data of HK532-IGF-1 stem cells
Neuralstem announced that the poster "Human Neural Stem Cells Expressing IGF-1: A Novel Cellular Therapy for Alzheimer's Disease" was presented yesterday at the International Society for Stem Cell Research Annual Meeting. In the poster, researchers from the University of Michigan presented data that mice with an animal model of Alzheimer's disease, transplanted with HK532-IGF-1 cells in the peri-hippocampus, performed better on hippocampal-dependent behavioral tasks than untreated mice, demonstrating both enhanced learning cognitive processes and memory consolidation. Researchers also reported a beta-amyloid plaque reduction in both the cortex and hippocampus of the mice that received the stem cells. Amyloid plaque is one of the two hallmarks of AD. These results indicate that HK532-IGF-1 transplantation can impact learning and memory deficits, as well as Alzheimer's pathology. The researchers found the results to be encouraging and recommend further study. HK532-IGF-1, Neuralstem's second stem cell line, is a proprietary line of cortical neural stem cells engineered to express insulin-like growth factor-1, which has been shown to have wide-ranging neuroprotective properties.
