11:29 EDTSTEMConsumer Watchdog pushing for stem cell patent review, Bloomberg says
Consumer Watchdog, a nonprofit advocacy group, is pushing to have an appeals court invalidate a University of Wisconsin-Madisonís patent for stem cells derived from human embryos, citing its similarity to earlier research, says Bloomberg. Consumer Watchdog also says the U.S. Supreme Courtís June ruling limiting ownership rights of human genes should apply to stem cells, adds Bloomberg. StemCells is a company that is involved in the development of tools for use in stem cell-based research and another company, Advanced Cell Technology, are testing therapies to treat macular degeneration, which is a cause of blindness.

16:09 EDTSTEMStemCells Phase II Pathway Study data shows motor improvement in SCI patients
StemCells announced that the six-month interim results for the first cohort in its ongoing Phase II Pathway Study in cervical spinal cord injury, or SCI, showed motor improvements in both strength and function. The assessment of motor function involved using tests of dexterity. Patients eligible for the study have complete loss of motor control below the level of injury, the most severe degree of SCI as defined by the American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale, or AIS. Clinicians used both ISNCSCI, or International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury, and GRASSP, or Graded Assessment of Strength Sensibility and Prehension, measures to establish a pre-transplant baseline for each patient and to assess post-transplant progress. This first cohort of the Pathway Study was designed to assess the safety, and preliminary signs of efficacy, of cell administration into the cervical cord and select the dose level for the 40-patient second cohort, a randomized, controlled and single-blinded arm of the trial, which is already underway. Based on six-month follow-up, for the first cohort, an overall pattern of motor improvement was detected in four of the six patients as measured by gains in both strength and function on the collective ISNCSCI and GRASSP outcomes.
