FDA crackdown on unproven stem cell therapies – BioNews

By admin

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) intendsto investigate the use of unproven stem cell therapies being offered in the country’sclinics. Tighter enforcement from the FDA comes as an inspection at StemImmune Inc based in San Diego, California, revealed the use of potentially dangerous treatments administered to vulnerable cancer patients. Only a small number of stem cell treatments are currentlyFDA approved, including use of bone marrow transplants in cancer patients and cord blood for specific blood-related disorders.However stem cell treatments using only the patient’s own cells are not subject to the same level of regulation as drugs if the cells are only ‘minimally manipulated’.

Chemo-boosting drug discovered for leukaemia – Drug Target Review – Drug Target Review

By daniellenierenberg

Drugs developed to treat heart and blood vessel problems could be used to treat leukaemia Drugs developed to treat heart and blood vessel problems could be used in combination with chemotherapy to treat an aggressive form of adult leukaemia. Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute, Kings College London and Barts Cancer Institute discovered that acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) causes bone marrow to leak blood, preventing chemotherapy from being delivered properly. Drugs that reversed bone marrow leakiness boosted the effect of chemotherapy in mice and human tissue, providing a possible new combination therapy for AML patients.

Regulating Bone Marrow Protein can Improve Stem Cell Transplants – CMFE News (press release) (blog)

By JoanneRUSSELL25

A recent study has identified a key protein capable of regulating the process of new blood cells, including immune cells, which can potentially improve bone and stem cell transplants for donors as well as recipients. The researchers at Technical University of Dresden, Germany, led by the University of Pennsylvania, USA, found that a protein known as Del-1 occupies a key role in the process of hematopoiesis. In addition, researchers inferred that the protein regulator may be modulated to act as potential drug targets in patients affected by certain blood cancers types
