Data Monitoring Committee Recommends Continuation of Phase III Study of StemEx(R), a Cord Blood Stem Cell Product, for Leukemia and Lymphoma
Date:2/10/2010

JERUSALEM, February 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Gamida Cell-Teva Joint Venture (JV) announced today that the Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) has independently reviewed preliminary data from the pivotal registration, Phase III clinical trial of StemEx (called ExCell) and has recommended that the JV continue to enroll patients in this study. The next data analysis is anticipated to take place during Q2 2010. StemEx is being evaluated as a therapeutic treatment for adolescents and adults with blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, who cannot find a family related matched bone marrow donor.

The DMC's primary charge is to ensure that the study is conducted in an ethical manner that does not expose participants to undue risk. In addition, the Committee monitors the quality and overall conduct of the study and assesses whether to recommend that the sponsor modify or terminate an ongoing study, or whether to request further information for review. The DMC for the Phase III StemEx study, comprised of an independent group of medical and scientific experts, reviewed safety and efficacy data from participating sites to assess treatment benefit (or harm) to study participants. The DMC had no safety concerns and recommended that accrual on the study continue.

Dr. Yael Margolin, president and chief executive officer of Gamida Cell said, "This is another important milestone, that the DMC has reviewed the data and recommended continuing the phase III study of StemEx. With this green light, we shall continue enrolling patients in the trial with plans to bring StemEx to the market in 2011. We also hope that today's news will help to increase awareness of StemEx as an investigational treatment amongst patients with leukemia and lymphoma to consider in consultation with their physician."
