BrainStorm Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

HACKENSACK, N.J. and PETACH TIKVAH, Israel, Aug. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: BCLI), a leading developer of adult stem cell technologies for neurodegenerative diseases, announced financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2017.

"We are in the advanced stages of preparing for our pivotal Phase 3 trial to investigate NurOwn® in ALS," said Chaim Lebovits, President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainStorm. "We have agreements with Mass. General Hospital, California Pacific Medical Center and University of California-Irvine Medical Center to participate as centers in the trial, which will be funded in part by a non-dilutive grant of $16 million awarded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).  Based on the body of preclinical and clinical data we have compiled on NurOwn®, including data from our placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial which showed evidence of halting in disease progression, we believe that NurOwn® has the potential to become a valuable treatment option for ALS patients."

Second Quarter and Recent Financial Highlights:

  • Entered into agreements with Massachusetts General Hospital, California Pacific Medical Center, and University of California-Irvine Medical Center to participate in the planned Phase 3 trial of NurOwn® in ALS, pending FDA and Institutional Review Board approvals.
