NEW YORK, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: BCLI), a leading developer of cellular therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, today announces presentations at upcoming scientific conferences in May 2022. New data on the company's proprietary MSC-NTF exosome technology will be presented at ISCT 2022 (May 4 to 7 in San Francisco, CA) and at the ISEV 2022 Annual Meeting (May 25 to 29 in Lyon, France). An analysis of CSF biomarkers from the NurOwn® Phase 3 trial will be presented at the ALS Drug Development Summit (May 24 to 26 in Boston, MA).
International Society of Cell & Gene Therapy Meeting
Presentation Details: MSC-NTF derived small extracellular vesicles display superior macrophage immunomodulation compared with vesicles derived from naïve MSCs
Presenter: Dr. Kim Thacker, Senior Vice President, Medical Affairs and Clinical Innovation, Brainstorm Cell Therapeutics
Date/Time Wednesday May 4, 18:30-20:00 (Pacific Time), Exosome/EV session
Conference Link: ISCT 2022
The presentation will highlight results of a preclinical study undertaken to understand the mechanisms underlying the superior preclinical efficacy of Exo MSC-NTF versus Exo-MSC against acute lung injury. The effects of each on macrophage secretion of inflammatory factors were assessed.
ISEV 2022 Annual Meeting, Lyon France
Presentation Details: Therapeutic effect of MSC-NTF exosomes in experimental bleomycin-induced lung injury

BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. is a leading developer of innovative autologous adult stem cell therapeutics for debilitating neurodegenerative diseases. The Company holds the rights to clinical development and commercialization of the NurOwn® technology platform used to produce autologous MSC-NTF cells through an exclusive, worldwide licensing agreement. Autologous MSC-NTF cells have received Orphan Drug designation status from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). BrainStorm has completed a Phase 3 pivotal trial in ALS (NCT03280056); this trial investigated the safety and efficacy of repeat-administration of autologous MSC-NTF cells and was supported by a grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM CLIN2-0989). BrainStorm completed under an investigational new drug application a Phase 2 open-label multicenter trial (NCT03799718) of autologous MSC-NTF cells in progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and was supported by a grant from the National MS Society (NMSS).
