    NurOwn

    Hi all, just wondering if NurOwn gets approved in the US, is it likely that UK will follow and fund the treatment too?

    Unfortunately Arta, nobody knows the answer.

    Phase III results due by year end in the US, then it goes to the FDA for approval in the US market which can take ~6months.

    There is a petition calling on NurOwn to be fast tracked for approval in the UK but, as you said, will the treatment then be funded - that'll be the biggest issue in countries with a state funded health service.

    Keep watching for updates.

    Love Ellie.

      Thank you Ellie. That's my worry.

        I've had many friends and family sign the UK Petition for NurOwn, but it's only at 55,000 signatures and requires 100,000 by September to be possibly discussed at parliament. I understand that there's various steps involved to get anything approved, but very frustrating when things take time and that's the one area those affected by MND do not have.

        Money-time-health. We've seen the same paradigms juggled with the government dealing with the Covid pandemic.

        I watched a reflection video a few years back talking about all three. Basically saying if you have money, time and health you should be laughing and it's not often you have all 3.

          Thank you Tess.

          Exactly, time is not the luxury majority have. Hope it gets more signatures.

            200 ALS Patients Finish Dosing in Phase 3 Trial of NurOwn Cell Therapy

            NurOwn is a cell-based therapy that uses mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) — cells that are able to give rise to nearly all tissues found in the body, including bones, muscles, and connective tissue — isolated from a patient’s own bone marrow.

            After isolation, MSCs are grown in a lab dish and differentiated into cells that produce high levels of neurotrophic factors — compounds that promote the growth and survival of nerve cells. The modified cells are then returned to patients through an injection into spinal canal.
