The public is invited to attend the AdComm meeting via YouTube. A panel of experts will review and evaluate the data provided by BrainStorm about NurOwn’s safety and efficacy, and provide input that will help inform the FDA’s ultimate decision about NurOwn’s Biologics License Application. 

The FDA invites individuals to submit written comments about NurOwn to the AdComm panel for their review by Wednesday, September 20 to be included in the packet of materials provided to the panel. In your written statements, please refer to NurOwn as “debamestrocel,” its technical name.
