7/23/2012 10:03:09 AM

NEW YORK & PETACH TIKVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics (OTC:BCLI) announced today that it has completed the planned interim safety review of its Phase I/II ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) clinical trial, indicating that autologous transplantation of the Company's cell therapy was well-tolerated, appears to be safe for use, and did not present any undue risks to the study participants. We are very encouraged by the positive results of our first cohort of 12 patients,” said Professor Dimitrios Karussis of the Neurology Department at Hadassah Medical Center Jerusalem and Principal Investigator of the trial. "This important safety and tolerability data are reassuring as we progress to the next half of this trial. Although this is an interim safety summary report documenting achievement of the study's primary endpoint, we cannot ignore some possible promising indications of clinical efficacy observed in single patients, such as a tendency towards improvement in some of the major ALS Functional Rating Scale variables.”
