Phase I Clinical Trial Demonstrates Safety of Stem Cells for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Phase I Clinical Trial Demonstrates Safety of Stem Cell Therapy for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

A recent publication in Stem Cells Translational Medicine described an open-label phase I clinical trial that was designed to assess the safety of a stem cell therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The specific procedure involved two repeated injections of autologous bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells into the spinal canal of patients with ALS. The researchers found…
