e way drugs are developed to treat neurological conditions," said Thompson. "I look forward to working with the BCI management team and its board as they continue to move product candidates forward."

"Dave is an exceptional addition to our board of directors," commented Dr. Harry Hixson, BrainCells' chairman of the board.

About BCI-540

BCI-540 is in Phase IIa clinical studies for the treatment of depression with anxiety in patients who have not responded to current therapies. It has a mechanism of action distinct from any marketed anti-depressant by acting as a neurogenic agent directly on in vitro human neural stem cells, unlike an SSRI which acts by an indirect mechanism, which may eliminate serotonin associated side effects. BCI-540 was in-licensed from Mitsubishi Pharma (MPC) based on its neurogenic properties and in previous studies was shown to be well tolerated in more than 900 subjects in Phase I and II clinical trials.
