LONDON, August 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

International Stem Cell announced in July 2016 that it had dosed the first patient in the Phase I dose escalation study examining its neural stem cell product ISC-hpNSC for the treatment of moderate to severe Parkinson's disease. The study will enrol 12 patients at three dosing regimens with a primary endpoint of safety, but will provide preliminary efficacy data measured at six and 12 months following the treatment.

We have increased our valuation to $28m (from $27m), but have reduced the valuation per basic share to $8.75 (from $9.60). This reflects higher cash ($1.5m vs $0.5m) offset by an increase in the number of shares (3.2m vs 2.8m previously). Otherwise our valuation remains unchanged. There remain approximately 19m in potentially dilutive shares from warrants, options and convertible preferred stock. We maintain that the company will need at least $76m in additional financing before profitability in 2024.
