Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. today announced that its U.S. FDA approved Phase III STAR trial has enrolled and treated its 40th patient (50% of target enrollment). In addition, a pre-specified independent data monitoring committee review of safety data from the initial 20 patients has been conducted and the committee has recommended that the study continue as planned. “We remain encouraged by how well the trial procedures have been tolerated and how the procedures have been instituted across the 20 study sites around the country. We are grateful to the investigators, research staff and especially the patients who have participated and enabled us to remain on track to complete enrollment in mid-2016,” said Dr. Steven Kesten, Chief Medical Officer, Cytori Therapeutics.
