Thread: Neuralstem & chronic trial

    Neuralstem & chronic trial

    It appears that Neuralstem ( www.neuralstem.com ) may very well open a trial for chronic injuries this summer if everything goes well at the FDA. The trial would be very similar to what they did with ALS last year so the hurdle isn't as high as for an unproven cell intervention. They have no information about it on their website yet. I will post when more information becomes publicly available (good or bad about FDA approval)

    Cells from aborted fetuses like they did with ALS.

    how do you know the cells are from aborted fetuses and not from fertilization clinics?

    Regarding the clinical trial for chronics - Neuralstem filed an application with the FDA for an Investigational New Drug (IND). Hopefully, we'll be hearing about an approval for this trial soon.

    Here is a link which provides information on the current clinical trial at the Emory ALS Center.

    Two blurbs from the Neuralstem website -


    A few months later, Conley said he heard about research at Emory University where doctors were taking fetal stem cells derived from a fetus and directly injecting them into the spinal cord for the first time.


    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- -- CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on a new stem cell clinical trial that is making history. Dr. Gupta interviews doctors and an ALS patient who recieved stem cells from 8-week-old fetal tissue, in a clinical trial designed to determine whether it is safe to inject stem cells into the spinal cord and whether the cells themselves are safe.

    Jawaid, They have only made an application. Nothing has been approved yet, so there are no specific details for you.
