Longveron, Inc. is a publicly traded company focusing on biotechnology and specializing in stem cell research. The company is developing various therapies to treat aging-related disorders such as Alzhiemer’s. The company is using allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells to create regenerative medicine for a number of conditions related to aging, including metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, age-related frailty, and hypoplastic left heart syndrome (a rare congenital heart defect in children).
The company’s premier drug, Lomecel-B, an infusion drug, is made from medicinal signaling cells from healthy bone marrow from adult donors. Lomecel-B is designed to specifically treat aging frailty.
In addition, Lomecel-B is also seen as a possible treatment for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), which can affect patients with COVID-19 as well as influenza. ARDS has a very limited course of treatment, with ventilators as the most common.
Aging Frailty Phase 2b Clinical Trials
On August 13, 2021, the company issued a press release that included its financial results from the second quarter of 2021. Included were the results of a recent clinical trial of Lomecel-B. Unfortunately, the results were not as promising as hoped.
While all of the participants showed a mean increase of the baseline, it was not enough to show that Lomecel-B offered a significant difference for participants. The company stated that the drug had “not achiev[ed] . . . statistical significance for the pairwise comparison to placebo.” The test involved a six-minute walk for each participant. When compared to a placebo group, there wasn’t much of an improvement.
Upon the announcement of these results, Longeveron’s stock price dropped $1.51 per share, or 27.91%, to close at $3.90 per share on August 13, 2021. The decrease represents a total decline of 61% from the IPO price.

Longeveron held its initial public offering (IPO) in February, 2021 with an underwritten public offering that the company stated would gross $26.6 million.
