About Caladrius Biosciences

Caladrius Biosciences, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company with multiple technology platforms targeting select cardiovascular indications and autoimmune diseases. The Company is developing CLBS14, a CD34 cell therapy intended as a treatment for coronary microvascular dysfunction (CLBS14-CMD) and refractory angina (CLBS14-RfA).  CLBS14 is Caladrius’ proprietary and patent protected formulation of CD34 cells designed specifically to enhance the potency of the CD34 cells for repair and regeneration of cardiovascular tissue.  CLBS14-RfA recently received regenerative medicine advanced therapy (“RMAT”) designation from the US Food and Drug Administration.  CLBS14-CMD is the subject of an ongoing Phase 2 proof-of-principal study being conducted in the USA at Cedars-Sinai (Los Angeles) and the Mayo Clinic (Minneapolis).  A companion product, CLBS12, is formulated specifically for intramuscular administration for the treatment of lower extremity ischemia. A Phase 2 study of CLBS12 as a treatment for critical limb ischemia is being conducted in Japan, a successful outcome of which will, based on discussions with the Japanese regulatory authorities, qualify the program for consideration of early conditional approval as provided for under Japan’s progressive regenerative medicine regulations.  CLBS12 has been granted SAKIGAKE designation in Japan for the CLI indication, a designation similar to “Breakthrough Therapy Designation” granted by the FDA in the USA.  Additionally, the Company is investigating its CLBS03 product candidate, an ex vivo expanded polyclonal T regulatory cell therapy for the treatment of recent-onset type 1 diabetes, in an ongoing Phase 2 trial for which top-line data is expected in early 2019.  CLBS03 has been granted Fast Track and orphan drug designations from the FDA as well as Advanced Therapeutic Medicinal Product ("ATMP") classification from the European Medicines Agency ("EMA").  For more information about Caladrius, please visit
