Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. Announces the Release of Research Report by OneMedPlace


9/24/2012 10:58:03 AM

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. (OTCBB: AMBS), a California-based development-stage biotechnology developing new treatments and diagnostics for Parkinson's disease (PD) centered around its patented therapeutic protein MANF, today announced the release of a 2-page research report by OneMedPlace Research. The report can be found at http://www.onemedplace.com/reports/Amarantus_Research_Analysis.pdf.

The report states: "Treatment with MANF prior to inducing PD-like conditions in animals protected the subjects from the onset of neuron degeneration. Even more impressively, in animals where Parkinson's was already present, treatment with MANF provided restorative benefits that included regaining motor function, as well as the maintenance and increase in function of the neurons that were still present. Cumulatively, these studies provide strong evidence that MANF has the potential to serve as a first-in-class curative treatment for degenerative neurological disorders that include PD. Amarantus is currently in the design and development stages to move MANF into clinical trials."

The report also states: "Amarantus owns the license for Power3 Medical Products' NuroPro Blood Test as it relates to Parkinson's disease. NuroPro is a diagnostic platform for the early detection of neurodegenerative diseases. The PD application of this diagnostic has completed proof-of-concept and Phase I clinical validation studies."
