Neuralstem ALS trial in multiple presentations at upcoming American Academy of Neurology meeting
Date:4/6/2011

to Dr. Feldman's presentation, two others will focus on the Neuralstem ALS stem cell trial. Dr. Jonathan Glass, M.D., professor of neurology, Emory School of Medicine and Director of the Emory ALS Center, will join Dr. Nicholas Boulis, M. D., associate professor of neurosurgery at Emory School of Medicine, and Dr. Feldman for a presentation entitled: "Intraoperative Evoked Potentials for Monitoring Spinal Cord Stem Cell Injection in Patients with ALS," at 2:00 on April 14th. Dr. Glass is the site Principal Investigator for the trial and Dr. Boulis is performing the surgeries. The team will be joined by neurologist Seward Rutkove, MD, Chief of the Division of Neuromuscular Disease at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, to present "Electrical Impedance Myography in a Safety Study of Fetal Stem Cell Implantation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis," at 5:00 on April 14th. Dr. Rutkove's innovative work in EIM, which uses electrical currents to measure muscle changes in ALS patients, was just awarded a $1 million Prize4Life award (http://www.prize4life.org/). Neuralstem's trial is the first ALS study to utilize this breakthrough technology.

About the Trial

This Phase I trial, which is evaluating the safety of the cells and the surgery procedure, is designed to enroll up to 18 ALS patients, at varying stages of the disease progression. 11 patients have been treated so far. The first six were non-ambulatory. Of these, the first three received five unilateral injections of HSSCs in the L2-L4 lumbar segments of the spinal cord. The next three received 10 bilateral injections. All of the subsequent patients were ambulatory. The first three of these received five unilateral injections in the L2-L4 lumbar segments. The next two have received 10 unilateral injections in the same region. Future patients will all be ambulatory with sequential levels of disability. If approved by the FDA and the trial's safety mon
