HEALTH & FITNESS Who Cares For You?

that your health and well being are being taken care of by total strangers. But, when you live in a smaller community, like we do, the doctor, therapist, recep- tionist or any number of care- givers you deal with for yourself or those you love are people who live in your neighborhood. You see them at the grocery store, or your children’s recitals. You wait in line for popcorn with them and cheer for the same little league teams. This month’s health feature tells you a little more about some of the people we trust with our most personal concerns. Next time you see them, tell them thank you, for living here and for caring for us all.

W SanBio, a San Francisco Bay Area

biotechnology company, is developing a cell therapy for chronic stroke. Their lead product, SB623, is in an FDA- approved Phase 1/2a clinical trial where safety and therapeutic potential will be evaluated. SanBio is focused exclusively on novel treatments for diseases and injuries for which no alternatives exist. They are developing adult stem cell treatments for debilitating conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury. Preclinical evidence has demon- strated that SB623 is both safe and effective in restoring function in experi- mental models of chronic stroke. The on-going clinical trial will enroll a total of eighteen ischemic stroke patients (strokes caused by blockage of the blood supply to part of the brain).
