Commercialisation through Collaboration: What Does Partnering In This Industry Actually Look Like?
Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, London, UK
During the presentation, Mr. Field will highlight Cytomedix's two collaborations that are advancing clinical stage therapies. The first is a collaboration with the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN) for conduct of the PACE study, an 80 patient, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial designed to look at the safety and efficacy of ALD-301 in peripheral artery disease patients diagnosed with intermittent claudication. This is the first ever randomized clinical trial to look at the benefits of autologous stem cell therapy in this indication. The second collaboration is with Duke University Medical Center, which is conducting a Phase 1 clinical study with ALD-451 in patients that have been treated for glioblastomas, which is the most aggressive form of brain cancer. This open-label study is designed to enroll up to 12 patients and is intended to demonstrate the safety and feasibility of ALD-451 when administered intravenously in patients with grade IV malignant glioma following surgery, radiation therapy and treatment with temozolomide.
