ing and prevent the leakage of the microvasculature. The ischemic tolerant neural stem cells, injected directly behind the eye, address the nerve damage that has occurred with this condition.”

The patent was enabled by the results of a six patient clinical study conducted by Natalia Gavrilova, M.D., Ph.D., Head of Vascular & Eye Neurology at the Fyodorov Eye Microsurgery Center of Russia, and Professor and Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology of Moscow Medical University. Fyodorov is one of the leading ophthalmologic centers in the world performing over 300,000 procedures a year.

The study, presented at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting in Florida in the spring of 2011, was conducted without adverse events. Patients experienced improvements in the function of the optic nerve, blood flow to the eye, and reduction of inflammation in the six-month period following injection and became stable for the entire follow up period.

Paul Tornambe, M.D., of Retinal Consultants Inc., in San Diego, California, and former President of the American Society of Retina Specialists, reviewed the data. According to Dr. Tornambe, “These preliminary data are encouraging. As we seek to find the best treatments for diabetic retinopathy, it is important to explore many different approaches including combined stem cell treatment.”

Maynard Howe, Ph.D., Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stemedica commented, “One of the strategic advantages of Stemedica is our ability to manufacture, under cGMP conditions and with the appropriate licensure, multiple types of stem cells and to do so with proven safety, purity and potency. We look forward to utilizing our ischemic tolerant products in addressing eye-related disease.”
