About NBS20

NeoStem expects to initiate a pivotal Phase 3 trial for NBS20, an autologous melanoma initiating (stem) cell immune based therapy intended to eliminate the tumor cells capable of causing disease recurrence. The goal of the therapy is to eliminate or neutralize the tumor cells that are responsible for recurrence after medically induced tumor regression after a patient has already had undergone other treatments which may have reduced tumor size, but failed to entirely eliminate the cancer. NBS20 has been the subject of compelling trial results for the treatment of metastatic melanoma. As a result, NBS20 has been approved to enter a Phase 3 clinical trial with Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) and received Fast Track designation for metastatic melanoma, as well as Orphan Drug designation.
