Prof. Savitz highlights the Phase III MASTERS-2 trial (NCT03545607) of the allogeneic bone marrow-derived adherent stem cell product, MultiStem, for stroke treatment and enhanced recovery, which, if positive, could represent a breakthrough in the field. Prof. Savitz also discusses the need for optimization of the therapies themselves, as well as clinical trial design and patient selection.
