ReNeuron Group PLC (LON:RENE) said positive long-term data on its CTX cell therapy for stroke was presented at the American Heart Association International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles on Thursday.

A total of 30% of patients responded when assessed using the ARAT scale, a measure of upper limb mobility.

Data was also presented showing a response rate in 30% of people at 12 months post-treatment of at least a one point improvement on the modified Rankin Scale. This is a seven-point global measure of disability or dependence upon others in carrying out activities of daily living.

A one-point improvement is proven to be clinically meaningful for patients, both in terms of quality of life and healthcare resources needed to care for them.

Analysis of a subgroup of patients who had residual upper limb movement showed an “appreciably higher response rate” of 43% when measured using the modified Rankin scale.

ReNeuron shares were down 0.5% to 136.8p in late afternoon trading on Friday.
