Clinical trial for stem-cell therapy to reverse liver cirrhosis – The Straits Times

By JoanneRUSSELL25

SINGAPORE – The use of stem cells to reverse liver cirrhosis – or the hardening of the liver – is being explored in a clinical trial. Conducted by a multi-centre team led by the National University Hospital (NUH), doctors aim to determine if stem cell therapy can improve liver function. Previously, liver cirrhosis, caused by various diseases such as chronic hepatitis B and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, was thought to be irreversible

Stem cell-based therapy for targeting skin-to-brain cancer – Medical Xpress

By raymumme

July 10, 2017 Credit: CC0 Public Domain Investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute have a potential solution for how to kill tumor cells that have metastasized to the brain. The team has developed cancer-killing viruses that can deliver stem cells via the carotid artery, and applied them to metastatic tumors in the brain of clinically relevant mouse models. The investigators report the elimination of metastatic skin cancer cells from the brain of these preclinical models, resulting in prolonged survival

Asterias Biotherapeutics Receives FDA Clearance to Enroll C-4 Patients in SCiStar Study – PR Newswire (press release)

By NEVAGiles23

“The FDA’s decision to allow Asterias to enroll qualified patients with C-4 level injuries is the result of the data supporting the safety of both AST-OPC1 and the procedure to inject the cells, and means that the second most common cervical spinal cord injury population can now be eligible to receive AST-OPC1,” said Dr. Edward Wirth, Chief Medical Officer of Asterias. “The overall changes to the study protocol will enhance our ability to enroll qualified patient candidates for our current SCiStar study and we also expect the changes to help enrollment rates in a future, larger clinical study.” The protocol amendment will expand patient eligibility and enable study investigators to administer AST-OPC1 to patients with injuries at one vertebral level higher than the trial’s previous C-5 limitation, to the fourth cervical vertebra down, known as C-4, near the middle of the neck.

Getty Images/Spencer Platt Stem cell science is an area of medical research that continues to offer great promise. But as this weeks paper in Science Translational Medicine highlights, a growing number of clinics around the globe, including in Australia, are exploiting regulatory gaps to sell so-called stem cell treatments without evidence that what they offer is effective or even safe.

By Reuters By Reuters July 8 at 8:47 AM Stem cell tourism in which patients travel to developing countries for unproven and potentially risky therapies should be more tightly regulated, according to a group of international health experts. With hundreds of medical centers around the world claiming to be able to repair tissue damaged by conditions such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinsons disease, tackling unscrupulous advertising of such procedures is crucial. These therapies are advertised directly to patients with the promise of a cure, but there is often little or no evidence to show they will help or that they will not cause harm, the 15 experts wrote in the journal Science Translational Medicine
