Stemedica Requests Pre-IND Meeting With FDA
Date:8/21/2009

Stemedica Cell Technologies, Inc. USA, a leader in adult stem cell research and manufacturing, has requested a pre-Investigational New Drug (IND) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") to discuss a proposed IND to use Stemedica's proprietary line of allogeneic mesenchymal bone marrow cells (adult human) as a treatment for ischemic stroke.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2009 -- Stemedica Cell Technologies, Inc. USA, a leader in adult stem cell research and manufacturing, has requested a pre-Investigational New Drug (IND) meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") to discuss a proposed IND to use Stemedica's proprietary line of allogeneic mesenchymal bone marrow cells (adult human) as a treatment for ischemic stroke.

Stroke is a leading cause of adult impairment, with 20% of stroke survivors requiring institutional care after 3 months and up to 30% severely and permanently disabled. The only approved treatments of acute ischemic stroke involves restoring blood flow to the affected region by using thrombolytics or mechanical devices that physically remove clots. However, the use of thrombolytics (tPA) is limited due to the therapeutic window of < 3-6 hours post onset of stroke symptoms such that only a small fraction of stroke patients receive this therapy.

"Following a stroke, there is little therapy to offer patients to promote recovery other than physical, occupational, and speech therapy," said Nikolai Tankovich, MD, PhD, President & Chief Medical Officer. "Treatment with allogeneic mesenchymal bone marrow cells may offer new hope to patients with chronic neurological or age-related, neurodegenerative diseases."

Allogeneic mesenchymal bone marrow cells are obtained from donors by extracting bone marrow and are expanded at Stemedica's cGMP compliant facility, which is licensed by the California Department of Public Health, Food and Drug Branch. "Stemedica's facility will manufacture clinical grade stem cells as it prepares for FDA approval of an IND to begin clinical trials," said Maynard Howe, PhD, Vice Chairman and CEO of Stemedica.
