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

    NEWARK, Calif., Jun 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
    StemCells, Inc. STEM, +1.31% a world leader in the research and development of cell-based therapeutics for the treatment of central nervous system diseases and disorders, announced today 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.

    Course the first thing in Canada has to be within two years after injury

    How are the neural stem cells administered in their trial? It has been sometime since I read about their work, frankly because I don't think it's that promising. But I am I correct that it is injected into the spinal fluid one time, or is it a direct injection? Also their cells come from donated fetuses correct?

    Also it's only going to be a one-time dose isnt it. The clinical trial website doesn't answer these questions even on the completed phase 1
