08:40 EDTSTEMStemCells announces positive top-line results of HuCNS-SC Phase I/II study
StemCells announced that Dr. Armin Curt, principal investigator, will present a summary of the safety and preliminary efficacy data from the Phase I/II study investigating Human Central Nervous System Stem Cell, or HuCNS-SC, intramedullary transplantation in thoracic spinal cord injury. The summary will be presented today at 10:15 a.m. EDT at the 4th Joint International Spinal Cord Society, or ISCoS, and American Spinal Injury Association, or ASIA, meeting being held in Montreal, Canada. The abstract was selected as one of the top six platform submissions for the conference. The international, open-label, Phase I/II trial evaluated both safety and preliminary efficacy of StemCells, Inc.'s proprietary HuCNS-SC human neural stem cells as a treatment for chronic spinal cord injury. The trial enrolled twelve patients who had suffered injury to the thoracic cord and were in the early chronic stage of recovery. The severity of spinal cord trauma is classified by the ASIA Impairment Scale, or AIS, according to the degree of sensory and motor loss. Patients classified as AIS A, the most severe injury, have lost both sensory and motor function below the level of injury. AIS B patients are considered less severely injured because, although they also have no motor function below the level of injury, some limited sensory function is maintained. The protocol was specifically designed to test safety and preliminary efficacy across this spectrum of injury severity, and ultimately the trial transplanted seven AIS A and five AIS B patients.
