Dr. Ohad Karnieli was recently confirmed as Chair of ISCT's Process and Product Committee for a two-year post.  

"I am honored to serve as Chair of ISCT's Process and Product Committee. The committee acts as a leading force in the cell therapy industry by bringing together industry and academia to set standards and best practices that move cell therapy forward into commercialization for the benefit of patients. I look forward to making key contributions towards the committee's goals," stated Dr. Karnieli.

Dr. Karnieli will co-chair a presentation and panel discussion with Dr. Knut Niss of Novartis titled, "Process and Product Development Innovation," during the Strategies for Commercialization track on April 26 th from 1:15 pm - 2:45 pm.

The research findings are based on pre-clinical studies conducted in conjunction with the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Nephrology & Hypertension, Texas A&M Health Science Center and Scott & White Healthcare. Data from the study suggest that Pluristem's PLX-PAD cell treatment exerts beneficial effects by reducing inflammation and placental injury and demonstrate that PLX-PAD cells may be a potential novel therapeutic approach for the treatment of preeclampsia.
