  • U-M stem cell trial produces positive results for ALS patients

By Kim Kozlowski, The Detroit News, July 8, 2013

“The results suggest that [NSI-566] intraspinal stem cell transplantation of ALS subjects with no bulbar symptoms early in the course of their disease could slow disease progression,” Feldman said. “I am extremely hopeful that we have found a way early in the course of the disease to make a true difference. Any treatment that can slow the progression of the disease is truly a home run for Lou Gehrig.” ALS trial principal investigator, Dr. Eva Feldman, is quoted in this front-page feature story exploring Phase I results and the upcoming NSI-566/ALS Phase II trial planned this year, which will increase dosage and number of injections.

  • FDA-approved Stem Cell Trial Dramatically Slows ALS

By Cynthia Fox, Bioscience Technology, May 30, 2013

“Being a Michigan wolverine, I’ll use an analogy. It’s [no significant disease progression] as rare as a red wolf. And that is very rare,” says NSI-566/ALS clinical trial Principal Investigator Dr. Eva Feldman. Dr. Feldman and Neuralstem’s President and CEO Richard Garr are interviewed for this feature story that explores the new ALS Phase I data from six of the extraordinary responders, after Dr. Feldman presented it at the Romanian Neurological Society Congress earlier in May.
