A Phase I, Pilot Study of Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Cardiomyocytes in PaTients with ChrOnic Ischemic Left VentRicular Dysfunction (HECTOR)

Therapeutic Candidate or Device The therapeutic candidate is human embryonic stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hESC-CMs) as a new therapy for chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy patients Indication hESC-CMs will be indicated for treatment of heart failure (HF) and for preventing progression to HF in patients with chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy. Therapeutic Mechanism There are two commonly accepted mechanisms by […]

Phase 1/1b study of T-allo10 infusion after HLA-partially matched abdepleted-HSCT in children and young adults with hematologic malignancies.

Therapeutic Candidate or Device An immunotherapy cell product, T-allo10, that is enriched for specialized immune cells called type I regulatory T (Tr1) cells Indication Children and young adults with relapse/refractory acute leukemia receiving a specialized stem cell transplant, αβdepleted-HSCT Therapeutic Mechanism αβdepleted-HSCT has increased the number of patients who can safely receive transplants, however this […]

Safety and Tolerability Study of Neural Stem Cells (NR1) in Subjects with Chronic Ischemic Subcortical Stroke

Therapeutic Candidate or Device A human embryonic derived, non-genetically modified neural stem cell (NR1), originally derived from the Wi-Cell H-9 line Indication Patients with chronic motor deficits, from 6 to 60 months after stroke. NR1 cells will be injected into the brain near the site of the stroke. Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapeutic mechanism of […]

The CuRe Trial: Cellular Therapy for In Utero Myelomeningocele Repair

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Allogeneic Placenta-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells Seeded on Cook Biodesign® Dural Graft Extracellular Matrix (PMSC-ECM) Indication Myelomeningocele (MMC) -or Spina Bifida -diagnosed prenatally Therapeutic Mechanism Placenta-derived mesenchymal stem cells (PMSCs) act by a paracrine mechanism, secreting a variety of growth factors, cytokines, and extracellular vesicles. This secretory profile is unique to PMSCs […]

Clinical Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of Subretinal Injection of Human Neural Progenitor Cells for Treatment of Retinitis Pigmentosa

Therapeutic Candidate or Device CNS10-NPC – a human neural progenitor cell line Indication Retinitis Pigmentosa Therapeutic Mechanism 1. Phagocytosis of photoreceptor outer segment debris. 2. The release of pro-survival factors that have localized diffusion to inhibit retinal photoreceptor cell death. 3. Immunomodulation resulting in markedly fewer host inflammatory cells at the site of CNS10-NPC engraftment […]

Pancreatic Islets and Parathyroid Gland Co-transplantation for Treatment of Diabetes in the Intra-Muscular Site: PARADIGM

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Human pancreatic islets and parathyroid gland combination graft Indication Patients with established Type 1 diabetes Therapeutic Mechanism Pancreatic islet transplantation has become a more viable approach to treat patients with established Type 1 diabetes. However, widespread application has been limited by several barriers, most importantly, poor islet survival and an inability […]

Induction of Tolerance by Combinatorial Therapy w/ Donor Stem Cells and Expanded Recipient Treg cells in HLA-mismatched Kidney Transplant Recipients

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Combined hematopoietic stem cell graft and recipient T regulatory cells Indication Kidney disease requiring kidney transplantation Therapeutic Mechanism The study will determine whether patients treated with TLI and rATG, and given a haploidentical living donor hematopoietic progenitor cell transplant (HSCT) , along with in vitro expanded recipient Treg cells (what we […]

AB-205-001 Phase 1b Trial and Related Activities to Support Clinical Development of AB-205

Therapeutic Candidate or Device AB-205 consists of genetically engineered CD31+ cells derived from Human Umbilical Vein tissue. Indication To ameliorate or accelerate recovery from toxicities related to high-dose chemo followed by HDT-ASCT for the treatment of lymphoma and other cancers. Therapeutic Mechanism E-CEL UVEC cells (the active ingredient in AB-205) work both via the secretion […]

Treatment of sickle cell disease by induction of mixed chimerism and immune tolerance using CD4+ T-depleted haploidentical blood stem cell transplant

Therapeutic Candidate or Device Haploidentical (half-match) T cell depleted blood stem cell transplant with a low-toxic conditioning regimen Indication Adult patients with severe sickle cell disease who are excluded from the potentially curative current standard stem cell transplant. Therapeutic Mechanism The proposed therapy is intended to achieve mixed chimerism and immune tolerance. Mixed chimerism is […]

Cellular Immunotherapy for Induction of Immune Tolerance in HLA Matched Living Donor Kidney Transplant Recipients

Therapeutic Candidate or Device MDR-101 is cellular therapy consisting of kidney donor-derived CD34+ HSCs and CD3+ T-cells. Indication Maintenance of kidney allograft function after withdrawal of post-transplant immunosuppressant (IS) drugs in HLA matched kidney transplants recipients Therapeutic Mechanism Following infusion and engraftment of MDR-101, the progeny cells establish a state of mixed lympo-hematopoetic chimerism. This […]
