Below is a look at some of the headlines for companies that made news in the healthcare sector on August 6, 2013. Cardium Therapeutics (NYSE: CXM) announced it has entered into an agreement with Orbsen Therapeutics Ltd and the National University of Ireland, Galway, to utilize Cardium's Excellagen® pharmaceutically-formulated gel as a delivery agent for Orbsen's proprietary stromal cell therapy in pre-clinical studies for the potential treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. The research is being conducted by the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI), at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG), a world-class biomedical research centre focused on mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) research. The research initiative is funded by REDDSTAR, a European Union Framework 7 (EU FP7) research collaboration focused on treating diabetes and its complications with a defined MSC therapy and enlisting academic and industry partners throughout Europe in the program (www.reddstar.eu).

Cardium's FDA-cleared Excellagen is an aseptically-manufactured, quaternary fibrillar Type I bovine collagen homogenate that is configured into a staggered array of three-dimensional, triple helical, telopeptide-deleted, tropocollagen molecules. This linear array forms a flowable, biocompatible and bioactive structural matrix that promotes chemotaxis, cellular adhesion, migration and proliferation to stimulate tissue formation. The Excellagen homogenate represents a new product delivery platform that allows for the potential development of a portfolio of advanced tissue regeneration therapeutic opportunities that could include anti-infectives, antibiotics, peptides, proteins, small molecules, DNA, stem cells, differentiated cells and conditioned cell media.

Chelsea Therapeutics International, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CHTP) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.  "Chelsea continues to diligently manage its financial resources, which are projected to fund operating expenses into the third quarter of 2014, as we work to finalize our NDA submission for NORTHERA" (droxidopa) in the treatment of symptomatic Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (NOH)," said Joseph G. Oliveto, Interim CEO of Chelsea. "We anticipate that this effort will be completed in August, at which point a new PDUFA date, expected in the first quarter of 2014, will be set by the Agency."

Recent Highlights--In early July 2013, Chelsea resubmitted its New Drug Application (NDA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seeking approval to market Northera for the treatment of symptomatic NOH. On July 29, Chelsea reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified certain technical difficulties with the resubmitted New Drug Application (NDA). The Company expects to submit the necessary response in August 2013, at which point a new six month Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) review clock is expected to begin.
In June 2013, Chelsea was added to the Russell 3000® and Russell 2000® Indexes when the Russell Investment Group reconstituted its family of U.S. indexes.
