NeoStem Acquires Amorcyte, a Clinical Stage Cardiovascular Disease Cell Therapy Company

g from bone marrow and traveling to the damaged region of the heart following an AMI. Treatment with  AMR-001 involves infusion of an active population of these cells directly into a patient's heart via an intra-coronary catheter six to eleven days after an AMI (i.e., after the "hot" or inflammatory phase) and as such complements the body's natural rescue mechanism for those cells that face hypoxic stress (i.e., oxygen deprivation) as a result of an increased workload.

NeoStem believes AMR-001 stands alone in its ability to claim all of the following attributes:

  • a confirmed mechanism of action
  • access to a cGMP (current good manufacturing practices) facility
  • an established dose that exceeds the threshold for biological activity
  • use of autologous cells that have no risk of rejection and are capable of integrating and providing local support, potentially for a prolonged period of time as demonstrated in pre-clinical animal experiments
  • cells that are not expanded, thereby eliminating the potential concerns associated with such expansion, and
  • an issued patent with composition of matter, methods and processes claims with long remaining life.

"We are very much encouraged by the Phase 1 trial results and look forward to moving AMR-001 forward toward commercialization through NeoStem," said Dr. Andrew L. Pecora, Chief Medical Officer of NeoStem and Chief Scientific Officer of Amorcyte. "Through NeoStem's preclinical VSEL™ (very small embryonic-like stem cell) platform, the Phase 1-ready autoimmune disease product candidates of its Athelos subsidiary, and now through AMR-001, NeoStem seeks to fulfill the promise that an individual's own cells hold the potential to both heal and transform the way medicine is delivered."

Dr. Robin L. Smith, Chairman and CEO of NeoStem said, "The closing of our acquisition of Amorcyte represents a leap for
