ReNeuron’s stem cell treatment fails a small stroke study, but the biotech says it’s ready for pivotal
ReNeuron’s mid-stage stem cell study on stroke disability failed to hit a modest primary endpoint. But after stretching and twisting to reach what it was looking for, the biotech cited a few different patient successes and called it all distinctly positive.
