Company gets green light from DSMB Board for enrolling additional 2 cancer patients for ApoGraft™ transplantation treatments
TEL AVIV, Israel, March 27, 2017 -- Cellect Biotechnology Ltd. (Nasdaq:APOP) (TASE:APOP), a developer of stem cell selection technology, announced today that the first stem cell transplant procedure has been successfully performed using its ApoGraft™ technology in the Company’s Phase I/II clinical trial in a blood cancer patient.
Up to 50 percent of stem cell transplant procedures, such as bone marrow transplants, result in life-threatening rejection disease, known as Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GvHD). Cellect’s ApoGraft™ technology is aiming to turn stem cell transplants into a simple, safe and cost effective process, reducing the associated severe side effects, such as rejection and many other risks.
