CIRM Funds Clinical Trial to Make Cancer Therapy Safer, Less Toxic

“If successful, this approach can overcome hurdles to the success of chemotherapy and blood stem cell transplantation for the treatment of advanced blood cancer,” says Dr. Maria T. Millan, President and CEO of CIRM.

Blood stem cell transplantation following high dose chemotherapy is standard of care and potentially curative for aggressive forms of lymphoma. However, this treatment regimen is limited by severe …

Neurona Therapeutics Update: First two patients who received treatment experienced significantly less seizures

Both patients entered the study with a history of significant monthly seizures that were not controlled by anti-seizure medications.

So far, they have both seen encouraging signs of reduced seizures which suggest that a single dose of NRTX-1001 may have a long-lasting ability to suppress seizures.

Nearly 3.5 million Americans suffer from some form of epilepsy. It can affect people in different ways from stiff muscles or staring spells, to violent shaking and loss of consciousness. …

Pioneering a new approach to HIV/AIDS

Caring Cross announced recently that they have dosed the first patient in the trial testing their anti-HIV duoCAR-T cell therapy.

The goal of this one-time therapy is to act as a long-term control of HIV with patients no longer needing to take anti-HIV medications. If it is successful it would be, in effect, a form of functional HIV cure.

A pioneering couple uproot their lives to help their baby

When Michelle and Jeff learned they were expecting a baby, they were elated.

Then an ultrasound exam at 20 weeks into the pregnancy showed the fetus had spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly.

The couple were referred to UC Davis where Dr. Diana Farmer and Dr. Aijun Wang were running a clinical trial—funded by CIRM—using stem cells, taken from a donor placenta.

CIRM-funded stem cell-gene therapy shows promise in ALS safety trial

With funding support from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM), Cedars-Sinai investigators have developed an investigational therapy using support cells and a protective protein that can be delivered past the blood-brain barrier.

This combined stem cell and gene therapy can potentially protect diseased motor neurons in the spinal cord of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a fatal neurological disorder known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease.

“We are very grateful to all the participants in the study,” says senior author Clive Svendsen, PhD. “ALS is a very tough disease to treat, and this research gives us hope that we are getting closer to finding ways to slow down this disease.”

How CIRM contributed to City of Hope study helping man with HIV into long-term remission

We are thrilled about City of Hope's great achievement in helping a man with HIV go into long-term remission through a stem cell transplant.

What wasn’t reported was that work supported by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) played a role in making that happen.

CIRM’s Alpha Clinics Network helped City of Hope get this case approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) and also helped in collecting and shipping the donor blood.

In addition, part of the Alpha Clinics team at UC San Diego helped with the reservoir analysis of blood and gut biopsies to check for any remaining signs of HIV.

While the role of the Alpha Clinics Network in helping this one patient may seem relatively small, it was also an important one.

And CIRM certainly is not stopping there: we have invested more than $79 million in 19 different projects targeting HIV/AIDS, include four clinical trials.

General information

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was established by Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. The statewide ballot measure, which provided $3 billion in funding for stem cell research at California universities and research institutions, was approved by 59% of California voters on November 2, 2004, and called for the establishment of a new state agency to make grants and provide loans for stem cell research, research facilities and other vital research opportunities. The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) is the 29-member Governing Board of the Institute; the Governing Board members represent expertise from California’s leading public and private universities, non-profit hospitals and research institutions, patient advocacy groups and biotechnology.

As if this week wasn't already amazing enough with all of your incredible support on Giving Tuesday, we just received the momentous news that the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine has awarded a $4 million dollar grant to Mahzi Therapeutics to accelerate their work in Pitt Hopkins Gene Therapy based on the work you all funded! We couldn't be more grateful to Mahzi, CIRM and all of you. This is BIG!

Read more about it here:
https://www.cirm.ca.gov/our-progress/awards/development-gene-therapy-treatment-pitt-hopkins-syndrome-phs-translating-animal

Mahzi, a rare disease therapeutic company started by esteemed scientists from the successful biotech, Ultragenyx, launched earlier this year with Pitt Hopkins as one of their first 3 pipeline indications. We were honored they chose us, and are even more honored and grateful that they saw so much promise in the work of Drs. Alysson Muotri and Fabio Papes (PTHS Uncle) at UCSD that they applied for this grant. For the CIRM to also see the promise and make this unprecedented investment into Pitt Hopkins translational work is absolutely transformative for our community! We are hopeful to see this therapy launch in human clinical trials in 2024.

To those of you who have donated, THANK YOU, FOR MAKING DREAMS A REALITY!
Our expanded stem-cell research programs will prepare more students to explore and advance in scientific careers in regenerative medicine, a field focused on developing stem cell treatments to heal or replace tissues and organs damaged by aging, disease and defects. Huge thanks to the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, for the support!
To advance approved treatments that will be available to Californians from all backgrounds, the USC+CHLA Alpha Clinic will use a new $8M grant from California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to expand personnel dedicated to advancing clinical trials of new cell and gene therapies, engage underserved communities in such studies, and train the workforce that conducts them.

“These cell- and gene-based strategies take advantage of really complex machinery that Mother Nature has developed over a billion and a half years of evolution,” said Tom Buchanan, MD, program director of the USC+CHLA Alpha Clinic and vice dean of research of the Keck School of Medicine of USC. “They could change the way we practice medicine.”
