BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:BCLI) has enrolled the first patients in the Phase 3 clinical trial of NurOwn® (NCT03280056) for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The trial is taking place at six leading U.S. Medical centers. It is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, multi-dose trial that is expected to enroll approximately 200 patients randomized 1:1 to NurOwn® or placebo. Cells will be extracted from each patient one time prior to treatment, with all administrations of NurOwn® derived from the same extraction of cells thanks to a cryopreservation process developed for long-term storage of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). As in previous studies, there will be a 3-month run-in period prior to the first treatment with two additional NurOwn® treatments occurring two and four months following the first treatment. The primary outcome of the study is the ALSFRS-R score responder analysis.
