Safety and Dosing of Autologous Neural Progenitors Injected Intrathecally in Multiple Sclerosis Patients: Results of a Pilot Study (P2.221)

CONCLUSIONS: Based on these preliminary results, it was determined that MSC-NP doses of between 2 and 10 million cells would be consistently safe and possibly effective. Preliminary data obtained from this treatment resulted in FDA approval for a phase I study of MSC-NP treatment for 20 MS patients. Disclosure: Dr. Sadiq has nothing to disclose. Dr. Chirls has nothing to disclose. Dr. Koffler has nothing to disclose. Dr. Harris has nothing to disclose. (Source: Neurology)
