Juridification in Bioethics: Governance of Human Pluripotent Cell Research
A team of scientists, which includes 15 Australians as well as researchers from Canada, Netherlands and South Korea, have identified a new kid of stem cell, a type of pluripotent cell.
Although the AG (in line with the majority of Member States' legislation) did not consider that pluripotent HeS fell within this definition of an embryo (as such cells were not capable of developing into a complete human being), he did consider that their use was still excluded from patentability as "it is not possible to ignore the origin of this pluripotent cell.
These cell lines include one disease free pluripotent cell line and 24 others with individual mutations that give rise to several severe diseases such as cancer (breast cancer, Wilm's tumor and Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome), Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophy (including CMT, FSHD and Myotonic) and cystic fibrosis as well as some rarer genetic diseases such as Trisomy 5, macular dystrophy, incontinentia pigmenti, juvenile retinoschisis, alpha thalassemia and autosomal dominant torsion dystonia.
Kaufman has identified several CAR constructs optimized for NK cell signaling, persistence and cytotoxicity, and combined his targeting content with Fate Therapeutics' induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform for development of off-the-shelf CAR-targeted NK cell products using clonal engineered master pluripotent cell lines.
com piece made it clear that those who refuse to sanction the killing of human embryos for their stem cells "have vigorously supported non-embryo-destructive methods of obtaining pluripotent cell.
had isolated a human pluripotent cell that can generate nearly every type of human blood cell when transplanted into the bone marrow of mice lacking an immune system.
These high-quality reagents for defined pluripotent cell culture increase experimental reproducibility, eliminate variable biologic elements in the culture media and increase clinical relevance for culture of ES cells and iPS cells.
MADRID, Spain, September 25, 2017 -- A sophisticated system of "social control" operating between neighboring cells allows embryos to protect the purity of their pluripotent cell population, which can generate all body tissues.
The EPO's decision to uphold these patents protecting OpRegen reinforces BioTime's ability to defend its intellectual property and patent portfolios, which is one of the largest in the pluripotent cell therapy industry," said general counsel Stephana Patton.
Since the growth factors appeared to make such a difference, the researchers tried to make a more useful human pluripotent cell using a new approach.
Recognizing the need to deliver a level of standardization and reliability in the field of pluripotent cell biology, ATCC and Stemgent have agreed to work in partnership with the intent to co-develop cell lines and reagents for this dynamic field.
