StemCells Inc. Reports Top Line Results for Its Phase I/II Study in Dry Age Related Macular Degeneration

StemCells Inc. announced that Dr. Stephen Huhn, its Vice President of Clinical Research and Chief Medical Officer, presented an overview of the Company's clinical translation efforts to date, including a summary of the safety and preliminary efficacy data from the Company's Phase I/II study investigating its proprietary HuCNS-SC cells (purified human neural stem cells) as a potential therapy for geographic atrophy, the most advanced form of dry age related macular degeneration (AMD). The summary was presented June 26, at 4:00 p.m. CEST, at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) being held in Stockholm, Sweden. The Company's 15-patient, open-label, Phase I/II trial was designed to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of sub-retinal HuCNS-SC cell transplantation in geographic atrophy (GA), the most advanced form of dry AMD. Multiple safety and efficacy assessments were incorporated into the study, including various assessments of visual function and measurements of disease status by direct retinal examination. The tests in the study included best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), contrast sensitivity (CS), microperimetry for analysis of visual function, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and fundus autofluorescence (FAF) to measure the extent of the underlying geographic atrophy. The safety profile emerging from the Phase I/II study supports the recent initiation of the Company's Radiant Study, a Phase II controlled proof-of-concept trial. The BCVA and CS measurements for the majority of the patients in the study either improved or remained stable in the treated eye. OCT analysis showed increases in central subfield thickness and in macular volume in the treated eye relative to the untreated eye. The prospective analysis of both cohorts in the study showed GA growth rates in the study eye that were lower than those seen in the control eye, consistent with the previously reported interim findings for Cohort I alone. However, to further investigate the possible effect of the cells on GA and to inform future clinical development, the Company subsequently engaged a reading center to perform a separate post-hoc assessment. The separate assessments have revealed greater than anticipated variability in grading of the images. While the prospective analysis for both Cohorts continues to show a decrease in the rate of GA progression in the treated eye for the majority of the patients, the post-hoc analysis did not reveal a similar trend.

StemCells Inc.'s Phase II Pathway Study for Cervical Spinal Cord Injury Approved by Health Canada

StemCells Inc. announced that Health Canada has authorized the Company to expand its Phase II clinical trial for chronic cervical spinal cord injury into Canada. The Pathway Study is designed to assess the efficacy of the Company's proprietary HuCNS-SC® platform technology (purified human neural stem cells) for the treatment of cervical spinal cord injury with the primary efficacy outcome being the change in motor strength of the various muscle groups in the upper extremities innervated by the cervical spinal cord.

StemCells Inc. Approves Amendments to the Company's Amended and Restated By-Laws

Effective June 11, 2015, the Board of Directors of StemCells Inc. unanimously approved amendments to the company's Amended and Restated By-laws principally to add certain forum selection and fee shifting provisions to apply in the event of intra-partes disputes.
