First-in-human clinical trial evaluates safety of stem cell transplant procedure for spinal injury patients

The first-in-human clinical trials to evaluate the safety of stem cell treatments for spinal injury have been expanded to include four new participants.

First started in 2014, the phase I study is working to assess the toxicity of neural stem cell transplantation for individuals with chronic cervical spinal cord injuries. This is a collaborative project undertaken by the UC San Diego School of Medicine, the Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center at UC San Diego Health, and a Maryland-based biotechnology company called Neuralstem.
