Recent accomplishments include:

  • September of 2011 - BrainStorm received notice from Israel’s Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) of its commitment to grant the Company’s Israeli subsidiary approximately $1.1 million (NIS 3.8 million) in accordance with OCS requirements. The OCS has supported BrainStorm since 2007, providing grants of approximately $2,400,000 to date including this latest award.
  • July 2011 - BrainStorm entered into a Memorandum of Understating with Massachusetts General Hospital and the University of Massachusetts Medical School in anticipation of applying for FDA approval to begin ALS human clinical trials in the United States.
  • July 2011 - BrainStorm also signed an agreement with PharmaNet LLC, an inVentiv Health Company, to assist in the development of the protocol and IND file for submission to the FDA for approval of BrainStorm’s ALS human clinical trials in the United States.
  • June 2011 - BrainStorm initiated its Phase I/II clinical trial with its proprietary NurOwn™ treatment for patients with ALS at the Hadassah Medical Organization. BrainStorm is the first company to receive approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH) for a differentiated stem cell-based therapy.
  • March 2011 - Andrew H. Card, Jr., joined the Company’s Business Advisory Board. Mr. Card was the second-longest serving White House Chief of Staff, appointed in the presidential administration of George W. Bush.
  • February 2011 - BrainStorm entered into securities purchase agreements with certain institutional and other investors in connection with a private placement financing in reliance upon Regulation S. This transaction closed on February 28, 2011, and the Company received gross proceeds of approximately $3.6 million. The Company also issued warrants to the investors in the financing which were partially exercised for an additional $265,000.
  • February 2011 - BrainStorm was granted Orphan Drug Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Company’s NurOwn™ autologous adult stem cell product candidate for the treatment of ALS. This designation affords the Company seven years of marketing exclusivity for NurOwn™ upon regulatory approval, as well as the opportunity to apply for grant funding from the U.S. government to defray costs of clinical trial expenses, tax credits for clinical research expenses and potential exemption from the FDA’s application user fee.  Investors can learn more about NurOwn™ here.
  • January 2011 - BrainStorm appointed an experienced drug developer, Adrian Harel, Ph.D., as the Company’s Acting Chief Executive Officer.

Technically speaking, the BCLI stock chart is holding a firm base at $0.25, a regular area of support for the chart.  The last time that the share value was at these levels was in June 2011.  It had been holding the quarter mark for several months and eventually exploded to touch 60 cents in just two days.  Widely-used indicators such as the Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) and Relative Strength Index (RSI) have recently begun uptrends, showing some strength to trend and momentum coming into the chart.  While still early in a potential new uptrend, the indicators aligning - coupled with the 25 cent support level - may be catching the eyes of technical traders.

BEVERLY, MA-(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2011) - Cellceutix Corporation (OTCQB: CTIX) (PINKSHEETS: CTIX), a biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering and developing small molecule drugs to treat unmet medical conditions, is pleased to report that its toxicology vendor, Toxikon Corporation, is currently presenting its poster “Bioanalytical Method for Kevetrin™” at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) meeting in Denver, CO June 5th - 9th. The poster was accepted for presentation by the ASMS and showcases Kevetrin™, the Company’s novel anti-cancer compound.

The poster explains that Kevetrin™ is a unique compound with distinctive chemistry with hydrophilicity and small molecular size. A novel HPLC-MS/MS method was successfully developed and validated for the determination of Kevetrin™ in plasma. This method met the high standards for performance requirements needed to support pre-clinical toxicology studies and IND submission to the FDA.

Leo Ehrlich, CEO of Cellceutix, commented,

“It is a very busy time at Cellceutix. We are extremely pleased that Toxikon chose to present Kevetrin™ at the ASMS meeting as to what they accomplished, creating the new HPLC-MS/MS method which was another industry first. It is often difficult to help people understand the challenges behind developing Kevetrin™ as there is nothing else like it; so even what may be standard for other drugs requires a completely new process to be established for us. It is this uniqueness that we believe distinguishes Cellceutix as having one of the most promising anti-cancer compounds.”
