Product Candidate for Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI)
Caladrius plans to develop its product candidate, CLBS12, in Japan under Japan’s regenerative medicine law. This law enables an expedited path to conditional approval for regenerative medicine products that show sufficient safety evidence and signals of efficacy in a phase 2 study. Our Clinical Trial Notification for a pivotal Phase 2 trial investigating CLBS12 was submitted to the Japanese Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Agency ("PMDA") and was cleared to proceed. The protocol design was agreed with PMDA and if successful, could provide the basis for conditional approval under Japan's favorable regenerative medicine law. We are seeking to collaborate on CLBS12 with development and/or manufacturing partners.
No-Option Critical Limb IschemiaThe goal of CLBS12 is to prevent the serious adverse consequences of no-option CLI (cases where there is no longer the potential for other treatment beyond amputation) by extending the time of continuous CLI free status through improved blood flow in the affected limb. We also believe a CD34 product would have potential in treating chronic heart failure ("CHF"). Published reports have provided evidence that CD34 cells administered into the coronary arteries of patients with CHF can improve survival compared to patients treated with standard medical therapy.
CD34 cell therapy is supported by a profound body of clinical evidence
- Pre-clinical studies document improved microcirculation1
- Phase 2 clinical studies consistently show benefits in safety and function
- Reduced amputation in critical limb ischemia2
- Improved function in claudication3
- Reduced angina and improved ETT in refractory angina4
- Improved mortality and LVEF in dilated cardiomyopathy5
- Critical limb ischemia (CLI) in Japan
- Coronary microvascular dysfunction (CMD)
- Refractory angina
Japanese development program for critical limb ischemia
Phase 2 protocol and CMC strategy completed in consultation with Japanese PMDA. Received SAKIGAKE designation for expedited review. Phase 2 study is ongoing.
