The trial is designed to enroll up to 118 patients who have suffered an ischemic stroke with chronic residual motor disorder with Neuralstem's NSI-566 cell line, 4-24 months post-stroke. The stem cell treatment involves a one-time treatment of intracerebral injections of Neuralstem's neural stem cells into the stroke area using well-accepted stereotactic injection procedures. The trial will be conducted in 2 parts. The first part of the study, Phase I, will be open-label and enroll up to 18 patients who will be assigned to 3 cohorts. Each of these will receive ascending doses of NSI-566 to define the maximal safe dose. The maximal safe dose defined in the first phase will be used to evaluate efficacy in the second part of the study, a Phase II/Proof-of-Concept study. This Phase will be a multi-site, randomized, controlled, single-blind study and enroll up to 100 randomized subjects. 50% of the subjects will receive a one-time treatment with the cells and physical therapy and the other 50% will receive only the physical therapy with no surgery. Outcome measures during the follow-up period in Phase II will be conducted in single-blinded manner. The combined study, including patient monitoring and data collection, is expected to take approximately two years.About Neuralstem China
