BioMedNewsBreaks — Longeveron Inc. (NASDAQ: LGVN) Announces CEO Participation in Emerging Growth Conference, Completion of Investigator Meeting for Phase 2b Clinical Trial

Longeveron (NASDAQ: LGVN), a clinical-stage, regenerative-medicine biotechnology company developing cellular therapies for rare, life-threatening and chronic aging-related conditions, is participating in this week’s Emerging Growth Virtual Conference. The agenda for the event indicates Longeveron CEO and director Mohamed Wa’el Hashad will be speaking tomorrow at 1:45 p.m. ET; the two-day conference is slated for June 12–13. In addition, Longeveron has successfully completed an investigator meeting for ELPIS II, the ongoing phase 2b clinical trial that is designed to evaluate LGVN’s Lomecel-B(TM) as a potential adjunct treatment for hypoplastic left heart syndrome (“HLHS”). According to the announcement, the meeting included principal investigators and site staff from premiere infant and children’s treatment institutions across the country and included discussion regarding progress to date and operational implementation of the clinical trial. Multiple nationally recognized children’s treatment centers are participating in the ELPIS II study. HLHS is a rare pediatric congenital heart birth defect; with current HLHS treatment, only 50–60% of infants survive to adolescence. “We believe the data generated to date in HLHS support potential for Lomecel-B as a regenerative medical therapy to help these infants,” said Longeveron chief medical officer Nataliya Agafonova, MD, in the press release. “In the ELPIS I phase 1 clinical trial, participating infants experienced 100% transplant-free survival up to five years of age after receiving Lomecel-B compared to approximate 20% mortality rate observed from historical control data. ELPIS II is designed to further our understanding of Lomecel-B’s™ safety and efficacy in this patient population. With the collaboration of our outstanding investigative sites, we remain on track to complete enrollment of the clinical trial by the end of this year.”
