Brief Summary:
Controlled study of stereotactic, intracranial injection of SB623 cells in patients with fixed motor deficits from ischemic stroke

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Ischemic Stroke Biological: SB623 Implant (2.5M) Biological: SB623 Implant (5.0M) Procedure: Sham surgery Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a double-blind, sham-surgery controlled study of stereotactic, intracranial injection of SB623 cells in patients with fixed motor deficits from ischemic stroke. The study will be conducted at approximately 65 sites in the United States.

Two cohorts, Group 1 (2.5 and 5 million SB623 cells combined) and Group 2 (sham placebo), will be included in this study. Subjects who are randomized into this study will receive either 2.5 million SB623 cells, 5 million SB623 cells or sham surgery at a 1:1:1 randomization ratio. Randomization will be performed via an interactive web/voice response system (IXRS), stratified by Screening mRS score (recorded in the IXRS at the clinical site).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Subjects Whose Fugl-Meyer Motor Total Score (FMMS) Improved by ≥ 10 Points at Month 6 From Baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    The FMMS is used as a clinical measure of body function impairment after stroke that assesses several dimensions of motor impairment, including range of motion in both upper and lower limbs, reflex activity, volitional movement, and co-ordination.

    The FMMS motor component consists of the 33-item upper extremity subscale (UE-FMMS) and the 17-item lower extremity subscale (LE-FMMS). Items were scored on a 3-point ordinal scale:

    0= cannot perform; 1= partial motion; 2= full motion

    Individual items were then summed to determine scores for the 2 subscale scores, as well as a motor total score (total of all item scores including the 2 subscales UE-FMMS and LE-FMMS). As a result, the UE-FMMS subscale score ranged from 0 to 66 and the LE-FMMS subscale score ranged from 0 to 34. The FMMS motor total score ranged from 0 (hemiplegia) to a maximum of 100 points (normal motor performance).

    Responders: subjects whose FMMS motor total score improve by ≥10 points at Month 6 from Baseline



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Modified Rankin Scale Response: The Proportion of Subjects That Improved at Least One Point on the mRS From Baseline [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Responders: The subjects that improved at least one point on the mRS from Baseline

    Modified Rankin Scale (mRS): This scale is used to measure the degree of disability or dependence in the daily activities of people who had suffered a stroke. The mRS is an ordinal scale from 0 (no symptoms at all) to 5 (severe disability; requiring constant nursing care and attention, bedridden, incontinent) with a sixth category of death.


  2. The Proportion of Subjects That Improved at Least 6 Points From Baseline on the ARAT Total Score at the Affected Side [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Responders: The subjects that improved at least 6 points from Baseline on the ARAT total score at the affected side.

    Action Research Arm Test (ARAT): The test was scored for left and right side separately. Performance on each item was rated on a 4-point ordinal scale ranging from: 3 (performed test normally in less than 5 seconds); 2 (completed test, but took abnormally long or had great difficult, with time varying from 5 to 60 seconds; 1 (performed test partially); 0 (could perform no part of the test). The ARAT is a 19-item measure divided into 4 subtests: Grasp subscale (with 6 items and a score range of 0 to 18); Grip subscale with 4 items and a score range of 0 to 12); Pinch subscale with 6 items and a score range of 0 to 18); Gross arm movement subscale (with 3 items and a score range of 0 to 9). The maximum score on the ARAT is 57 points (possible range 0 to 57) for each side.


  3. The Proportion of Subjects That Improved at Least 1 Functional Level From Baseline on Gait Velocity [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    Responders: The subjects that improved at least 1 functional level (eg, from < 0.4 m/s to 0.4-0.8 m/s or from 0.4-0.8 m/s to > 0.8 m/s) from Baseline on Gait Velocity.

    Gait Velocity was measured on a standard 10 meter walk. Two trials were tested and the average result from both was used for analysis


  4. Neurological Quality of Life Response: T-scores of the Change From Baseline in the 2 Sub-domains (Upper Extremity Function and Lower Extremity Function) [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    The Neurological Quality of Life (NeuroQOL) was used as a measure of change in the levels of Quality of Life, Satisfaction and Participation, secondary to improvements in the subject's upper and lower extremity motor function. NeuroQOL is summation of item scores for upper extremity (8 terms: score 8 - 40) and lower extremity (8 items: score 8 - 40) separately. The item scores are on a 1 to 5 scale (1 = unable to do; 2 = with much difficulty; 3 = with some difficulty; 4 = with little difficulty; 5 = without any difficulty). The result provided here shows NeuroQOL score converted to T-score. The range for Upper extremity T-score and Lower extremity T-score are 12.8 to 53.8 and 16.5 to 58.6 respectively.

  5. Global Rating of Perceived Change (GRPC): The Proportion of Subjects Scoring Either 7 or 6 on the Global Rating of Perceived Change by Both Subject and Clinician [ Time Frame: 6 Months (LOCF) ]

    Responders: Participants who scored either 7 [much better] or 6 [a little better, meaningful])

    Global Rating of Perceived Change from Baseline: Subjects and Clinicians were asked about perceived changes in their motor function by comparing "how well they are doing compared to before the surgical procedure". The Subject Global Rating of Perceived Change was completed by the subject (or by the caregiver using the subject's answers). The following 7-point Likert scale was used: Score 7 (much better); Score 6 (a little better, meaningful); Score 5 (a little better, not meaningful); Score 4 (about the same); Score 3 (a little worse, not meaningful); Score 2 (a little worse, meaningful); Score 1 (much worse)



Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Additional Analysis (MMRM), Fugl-Meyer Motor Scale (FMMS) [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    An additional analysis using mixed model for repeated measures (MMRM) was performed treating the change from Baseline in FMMS total score as a continuous outcome (dependent) variable. The independent variables were treatment, visit, treatment-by-visit interaction, and pooled surgical site as effects, and Baseline FMMS total score and Baseline mRS score as covariates. Least-squares means (LS-mean) with SE was calculated for the change from baseline measurements.

  2. Proportion of Subjects Whose FMMS Motor Total Score Improve by ≥10 Points at Month 6 From Baseline (Per Protocol Population) [ Time Frame: Month 6 ]
    Responders: subjects whose FMMS motor total score improve by ≥10 points at Month 6 from Baseline
