Safety and Efficacy Study of HuCNS-SC in Subjects With Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis
The purpose of this Phase Ib study is to determine if "Human Central Nervous System Stem Cells"(HuCNS-SC) is safe to be transplanted in subjects with infantile and late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. The study will also measure post-transplantation disease progression.
