Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. Updates Shareholders on Timing of The Michael J. Fox Foundation Grant Data Release


11/12/2012 9:40:02 AM

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Amarantus BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: AMBS) is issuing corrections to a press release dated November 7 regarding data from a study into MANF, funded by The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF). 

To clarify remarks in the original release, MJFF does not agree with Amarantus' statements that, to-date, reported behavioural pre-clinical data were positive, and that histology data confirm re-innervation of the striatum due to MANF delivery. MJFF reserves any view on the histology results until the final data are available.  In addition, MJFF is not considering additional funding to Amarantus at this time. Amarantus has announced the final data will be available in December.

MJFF continues to invest in promising neurotrophic factor approaches, and will apply takeaways from this study to future initiatives.  The Foundation still believes that MANF is a potentially promising trophic factor. 

A link to the original release is below.
