Flowers for Algernon

It won't be long.

PALO ALTO, Calif., February 10, 2010 - StemCells, Inc. (NASDAQ: STEM) announced today that its proprietary HuCNS-SC ® human neural stem cells have been used to treat the first patient enrolled in its Phase I clinical trial in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease ( PMD), a myelination disorder that afflicts male children. The stem cells were administered yesterday at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Children's Hospital by direct injection into the brain of a patient with connatal PMD, the most severe form of the disease. This marks the first time that neural stem cells have been transplanted as a potential treatment for a myelination disorder, and the second clinical trial involving the use of HuCNS-SC cells in a neurodegenerative disease.

Send some flowers.
