Date:6/18/2009

gin clinical trials, was completed in October 2008. According to Chris Airriess, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer, California Stem Cell, Inc., "CSC is now preparing for a final FDA pre-IND meeting to take place in mid 2009, keeping us on track for a formal IND application to begin a Phase I/IIA clinical trial in SMA Type I."

Tetracycline Program:

According to Paul Higgins, Ph.D., Director, Inflammation Drug Discovery, Paratek Pharmaceuticals, "FSMA has supported the research at Paratek for the previous three years for our work on tetracycline derivatives as a potential treatment of SMA. These compounds are intended to correct SMN2 splicing and in turn increase SMN protein levels.

Using funding from FSMA to generate the preliminary data for a grant application, Paratek has been awarded a multi-million dollar U01 grant from the NINDS to continue our research that FSMA funded for the past 3 years."

The overall goal for this project is to develop a drug candidate for SMA resulting in an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) within 4 to 5 years.

These three announcements were all made at the 25th Anniversary SMA Conference. A record of over 900 families and researchers were present at the conference.
