Cytori Provides Twelve Month Data Update on Scleradec-I Trial

SAN DIEGO--()--Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYTX) announced today preliminary 12 month follow-up data from the 12 patient investigator initiated Scleradec-I clinical trial conducted by Prof. B. Granel and Prof. G. Magalon from the Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Marseille.

In the previously published six month follow-up data, Cytori’s ECCS-50 therapeutic showed:

  • Improvement in Cochin Hand Function Scale (CHFS) from mean of 48.5 at baseline to 21.2 at six months
  • Improvement in Hand Pain (Visual Analog Scale) from mean of 59.4 at baseline to 17.8 at six months
  • Improvement in Raynaud’s Condition Score (RCS) from mean of 7.2 at baseline to 2.9 at six months
  • Improvement in Scleroderma Health Assessment Questionnaire (SHAQ) score from mean of 1.4 at baseline to 0.8 at six months

The manuscript describing these data in detail can be viewed at

A preliminary assessment for 12 month follow-up data has been reviewed by the Company which management believes reflects:

  • No reports of adverse events or safety concerns
  • Average values for CHFS, RCS, and SHAQ score are statistically consistent with those at the 6 month follow up visit
  • While the average hand pain at 12 months was lower than that at baseline (reflecting overall symptom improvement over baseline), there was an approximately 50% reduction in the average therapeutic benefit on hand pain from six to twelve months

The investigators have prepared and submitted for publication a scientific manuscript based on final 12 month data. Once this manuscript has been accepted for publication and a publication date announced, Cytori will provide an update to investors.
