Successful second implant of NTCELL for Parkinson’s

18 August 2014 – Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand – Living Cell Technologies Limited today announced that a second patient has been successfully implanted at Auckland City Hospital in the clinical trial of the regenerative cell therapy NTCELL® for Parkinson’s disease. LCT plans to complete the patient treatment phase of the study this year.

The Phase I/IIa clinical trial is an open-label investigation of the safety and clinical effects of NTCELL in patients who can no longer respond to current therapy. The trial is directed by Dr Barry Snow MBChB, FRACP, FRCPC, an internationally recognised clinician and researcher in Parkinson’s disease who leads the Auckland Movement Disorders Clinic at the Auckland District Health Board.

Dr Ken Taylor, CEO of LCT says, “A great deal of hard work, preclinical research and scientific endeavour has gone into the discovery and development of NTCELL. Our innovative approach is the first to target regeneration of brain cells for patients who are failing the current conventional treatment for Parkinson’s disease.”

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
