Pluristem Therapeutics Inc. (Nasdaq:PSTI) (DAX:PJT) is the world's leading developer of placenta-based cell therapies. The company's patented PLX (PLacental eXpanded) cells drug delivery platform releases a cocktail of therapeutic proteins in response to a host of local and systemic inflammatory diseases. PLX cells are grown using the company's proprietary 3D micro-environmental technology and are an off-the-shelf product that requires no tissue matching prior to administration. Data from phase I/IIa studies indicate Pluristem's first PLX product, PLX-PAD, is potentially safe and effective for the treatment of end stage Peripheral Artery Disease. Pluristem's pre-clinical animal models have demonstrated PLX cells are also potentially effective in nerve pain and muscle damage when administered locally and in inflammatory bowel disease, MS and stroke when administered systemically.
