Xintela's stem cells show promising results in preclinical ARDS study

Lund, Sweden, 26 October 2020 - Xintela announces today that the company's selected human stem cells XSTEM® show a therapeutic effect in ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome) in an ongoing preclinical study in pigs. ARDS is a life-threatening lung complication that may affect severely ill covid-19 patients.

Xintela previously announced that XSTEM-ARDS is being evaluated in a well established preclinical pig model of ARDS and that Vinnova awarded a grant of SEK 1 million to fund the study. The preclinical study is being performed in collaboration with Professor Sandra Lindstedt and her team at the Cardio-thoracic surgery clinic, Skåne University Hospital in Lund and Lund University. The study involves twelve animals with the lung complication ARDS. Six animals receive intravenous treatment with XSTEM-ARDS and six control animals receive an injection without cells. During the study, various clinical parameters are monitored to measure lung and circulatory function and the health status of the animals. Blood and tissue samples are also collected and will be analyzed when the study is completed. Two animals remain to be treated before the final results can be compiled. The results so far show that XSTEM-ARDS had a positive therapeutic effect in all four animals that received stem cells. This positive effect is based on, among other things, improvement in the lungs' ability to oxygenate blood and stabilization of the blood circulatory system, compared to no improvement in the control animals, who remained in the life-threatening ARDS condition throughout the study.

"We have successfully completed the major part of the study and the results are very promising. In all animals treated with XSTEM-ARDS, we see a clear improvement in lung function and a reversal of the critical ARDS condition. For logistical reasons, it will take some time before we can complete the study, so we have chosen to report the current status and results thus far of this exciting study", says Xintela's CEO Evy Lundgren-Åkerlund.

"There is currently no effective treatment for ARDS. It is therefore encouraging to see the promising results with Xintela's stem cells in a model that is clinically similar to the life-threatening lung complication in ARDS patients. The results show that XSTEM-ARDS has the potential to improve the severe condition in ARDS patients, which can shorten intensive care time and reduce mortality", says Professor Sandra Lindstedt.
