    The presentation will be at the following session:

    Date: Monday, October 14, 2013

    Time: 11:00 am - 7:00 pm

    Title: The Use of Neural Stem Cells for the Treatment of Parkinson's Disease in a Non-Human Primate Model

    ISCO's Parkinson's disease program uses human parthenogenetic neural stem cells (hPNSC), a novel therapeutic cellular product derived from the company's proprietary histocompatible human pluripotent stem cells.

    hPNSC are self-renewing multipotent cells that are precursors for the major cells of the central nervous system. The cells have several characteristics that the company believes offer a new and revolutionary opportunity for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, especially in cases where current dopamine-replacement approaches fail to adequately control the symptoms. hPNSC are able to differentiate into dopaminergic neurons and are able to express neurotrophic factors such as glial derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) to protect the nigrostriatal system.
