Research Indicates Geron's Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Based,Therapeutic for Spinal Cord Injury Evades Direct Attack by the,Human Immune System

standard measure of immune recognition of foreign transplanted tissue. Even when GRNOPC1 cells were exposed to proinflammatory cytokines, such as gamma interferon or TNF alpha, allogeneic T cell proliferation was not induced.

In addition, GRNOPC1 cells were not lysed by natural killer cells, the "innate" arm of the immune system. Finally, GRNOPC1 cells were largely resistant to killing by antibodies present in the sera of normal healthy individuals. Sera from eight of 10 individuals failed to induce the killing of GRNOPC1 cells. The sera from the remaining two individuals induced only 10% GRNOPC1 cell lysis.

GRNOPC1 is an allogeneic population of cells containing oligodendroglial progenitors that is intended for transplantation into the lesion site of patients with spinal cord injury to induce tissue repair. Geron's development plan for the product calls for the filing of an Investigational New Drug (IND) Application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration later this year pending the outcome of ongoing safety studies.

Geron is developing first-in-class biopharmaceuticals for the treatment of cancer and chronic degenerative diseases, including spinal cord injury, heart failure, diabetes and HIV/AIDS. The company is advancing an anti-cancer drug and a cancer vaccine that target the enzyme telomerase through multiple clinical trials. Geron is also the world leader in the development of human embryonic stem cell-based therapeutics, with its spinal cord injury treatment anticipated to be the first product to enter clinical development.
