Q Therapeutics, Inc. Announces Clearance of its Investigational New Drug Application for Phase 1/2A Clinical Trials with Q-Cells in Patients with ALS
Jun 4 15
Q Therapeutics, Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared its Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for the initiation of Phase 1/2a clinical trials of its Q-Cells product in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a devastating condition caused by degeneration of motor neurons, the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control muscle movement. ALS affects more than 30,000 people in the U.S. at any given time and nearly half a million people worldwide. There is no effective therapy for ALS and it is 80% fatal within five years of diagnosis. Q-Cells, the Company's first patented cellular therapeutic product candidate, are glial-restricted progenitor cells (GRPs) - early descendants of neural stem cells that produce only glia - which make up 50% of cells in the brain. Glia are essential for supporting, maintaining and even restoring neuron health. The FDA's clearance of Q Therapeutics' Investigational New Drug (IND) application for Phase 1/2a clinical trials with Q-Cells in ALS patients confirms that the preclinical data are sufficient to allow initiation of the first-ever human trials evaluating the use of GRPs to treat ALS patients. Published pre-clinical data in animal models of ALS and other central nervous system (CNS) Stained Q-Cell in culture, during differentiation, with yellow showing diseases have demonstrated that delivery of healthy glial cells into the early progenitor characteristics, and red highlighting a protein found brain and spinal cord has the potential to modify the course of currently later in astrocytes, the cell type thought to be beneficial for ALS incurable CNS diseases and injuries.
