Neuralstem, Inc. (CUR-NYSE Amex) announced on Monday of this week that it would begin enrolling the next group of patients into its ongoing Phase I ALS clinical trial. This trial seeks to demonstrate the safety of surgically injecting stem cells into the spinal cords of patients who are diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. To date, six non-ambulatory individuals have received stem cell injections in the lumbar spinal cord, and the trial’s Safety Monitoring Board has unanimously approved enrolling the next group of patients. The trial’s next patients will be ambulatory, which represent earlier stages of the disease than have been tested thus far.

October 13, 2010 at 10:48 AM

CEL-SCI Corporation (CVM-NYSE Amex) is advancing its Phase III clinical trial of Multikine®, CEL-SCI’s lead immunotherapy product. Multikine® is being developed as a first-line standard-of-care treatment for head and neck cancer. In previous Phase II trials, this therapy was safe and well-tolerated, and had increased patient survival by 33% at a median of 3.5 years after treatment. Multikine® was also credited with eliminating head and neck cancer tumors in 12% of patients less than a month into treatment. On average, CEL-SCI’s new cancer therapy kills about 50% of tumor cells before patients have surgery or begin chemotherapy, which improves the likelihood of success of these standard treatments.
