Cedars-Sinai awarded $17.8 million grant to develop ALS treatment
Date:7/27/2012

emic Affairs, dean of the Medical Faculty and Helene A. and Philip E. Hixon Chair in Investigative Medicine. "We're grateful that this grant will allow us to vigorously pursue novel therapies and benefit ALS patients."

The Cedars-Sinai proposal involves collaborations with Emory University in Atlanta and California Pacific Medical Center, bringing together teams of scientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and nurses to take the stem cells from animal studies, through the regulatory process of FDA approval and into an 18-patient clinical trial for ALS in four years.

Svendsen expressed his thanks to Sheryl Osborne, a San Diego-based consultant, as well as their collaborators and his research team at Cedars-Sinai.

"I am grateful for the dedication our team has shown to ALS," Svendsen said. "We have a hard road ahead, and everyone should be humbled by the aggressiveness of this devastating disease. This combined gene and cell therapy approach may be one hope to fight back. With this CIRM funding, we can now move the study forward."

The Cedars-Sinai team was among seven to receive grants today from the California state stem cell agency. The current round of $150 million in new funding is to advance projects that represent the best possible chance of producing therapies for deadly and disabling diseases and disorders. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine was established in November 2004 with passage of Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Act, providing $3 billion in funding for stem cell research at universities and research institutions. CIRM previously awarded eight grants to Cedars-Sinai for a total of $11.1 million.
