New paper published on gene editing technique in hematopoietic stem cells

The San Raffaele Telethon Institute for Gene Therapy (SR-Tiget) and Genespire have published data highlighting progress in the development of an improved targeted gene replacement technology in human hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in Nature Biotechnology.

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) - Unlocking their full potential for Drug Discovery

Human stem cells were once viewed primarily as regenerative materials for tissue repair through cell therapies. However, advances in technologies and protocols mean that induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are now playing an increasingly important role in disease modelling and human cell-based screening assays. This article explores what this means for drug discovery.

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicines Human iPSC Initiative

This article discusses large-scale generation of patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to accelerate the understanding of disease biology and drug discovery.

Stem Cell Banking In Support of Drug Discovery

The discovery by Yamanaka and Thomson in 2007 that human somatic cells can be reprogrammed to a pluripotent state (ie, induced pluripotent stem cells, iPSCs) has revolutionised cell biology.

Large-Scale Expansion of Stem Cells For Therapy and Screening

Recently, pre-clinical and clinical studies of stem cells in regenerative medicine have demonstrated great promise as treatments for various diseases. Their ability to self-renew and differentiate makes stem cells valuable for both cell therapy and tissue engineering fields, both of which drive the demand for largescale cell expansion.

Stem Cells Rapidly Gaining Traction in Research and Drug Discovery

A recent market survey on stem cells in research and drug discovery showed that despite a significant amount of hype and hope around stem cells, most drug discovery-related efforts today still fall into the category of basic research and the majority of that was directed towards the oncology/cancer disease area.

Induced pluripotent stem cells in high-throughput cellular screening

With the failure rates of drug candidates continuing to present phenomenal costs to the pharmaceutical industry, this article discusses how newly emerging induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technologies have the potential to be an effective tool in weeding out low quality candidates early in the process, reducing attrition costs and, ultimately, improving the percentage of new drugs to market.

Stem Cells: Cell-Based Assays and the World of Small Molecules

Stem cells remain a hot topic in academia and industry alike, and with the potential to cause a paradigm shift where many believe in their ability to differentiate into a variety of valuable cell types.

The Application of iPS Cells and Differentiated Neuronal Cells To Advance Drug Discovery

While the jury is still out in terms of iPS cell technology and its ability to deliver a regenerative therapy or, indeed, contribute to the development of a clinical molecule, this paper argues that the progress by which this technology has been advancing is providing confidence that it will become a breakthrough technology for drug discovery.

Stem Cells - The long march forward to the clinic

The area of cellular therapeutics has never been readily embraced by 'Big Pharma', with ethical and regulatory issues even more complex and troublesome than proteins. Can stem cell therapy provide the key to unlocking a rich vein of pharmaceutical activity?

Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells: A model for transforming drug discovery

Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells have the potential to transform drug discovery by providing physiologically relevant cells for toxic compound identification, target validation, compound screening, and tool discovery. The technology for generating iPS cells is advancing rapidly, as is the repertoire of cell types that can be differentiated.

Enabling the Promise of Stem Cells

The remarkable potential of stem cells to generate several hundred differentiated cell types is driving their use for regenerative medicine and for supporting the traditional drug discovery and development process (Figure 1).

Stem Cells for Cellular Therapy Space

This article explores the emerging market landscape vis--vis the use of stem cells as cellular therapeutics. For more than 40 years, hematopoietic stem cells have been utilised as cellular therapeutics in a number of malignant diseases as well as inborn genetic errors of metabolism.

High Throughput Screening, High Content Screening, Primary and Stem Cells

Over the past decade, the use of cell-based assays has accelerated in modern drug discovery. Indeed, the majority of assays in either target validation or lead identification/optimisation all now employ cell-based technologies.
