Mike Tyson reveals all after doctors gave him blood injection that left him feeling weird during stem cell t – The Irish Sun

By daniellenierenberg

MIKE TYSON has revealed he was injected with nearly-translucent blood in his bid to make a comeback... and the former heavyweight champ said it made him feel "weird".

The 54-year-old - who initially retired from boxing in 2005 - will fight Roy Jones Jr in November in his eagerly-anticipated comeback fight.

His return to action has been aided by stem-cell research therapy, which has left him feeling like a "different person".

In May, Tyson claimed: "You know what I had done? I had stem-cell research therapy.

"I feel like a different person but I can't comprehend why I feel this way.

"It's really wild what scientists can do."

Stem-cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition that usually takes the form of a bone marrow transplantation.

Tyson opened up on the effects the treatment has had on him in an recent interview with rapper LL Cool J on the Rock the Bells Radio show on SiriusXM, earlier in 2020.

Commenting on the mental aspect of training for a fight for the first time in 15 years, he said: "My mind wouldnt belong to me.

"My mind would belong to somebody that disliked me enough to break my soul, and I would give them my mind for that period of time.

"Six weeks of this and Id be in the best shape Ive ever dreamed of being in. As a matter of fact, Im going through that process right now. And you know what else I did, I did stem-cell research."

Tyson was then asked whether that meant if his white blood had been spun and then put back in, to which he replied: "Yes. As they took the blood it was red and when it came back it was almost transfluid (sic).

"I could almost see through the blood, and then they injected it in me.

"And Ive been weird ever since, Ive got to get balanced now."

WHAT IS STEM CELL TREATMENT USED FOR?

Stem cell transplants are carried out when bone marrow is damaged or isnt able to produce healthy blood cells.

It can also be used to replace damaged blood cells as the result of intensive cancer treatment.

Here are conditions that stem cell transplants can be used to treat:

Iron Mike had been called out by former rival Evander Holyfield to complete their trilogy following their two meetings in 1990s.

But he has since looked elsewhere, taking on Jones Jr later this year - potentially in front of a packed house.

Tyson is looking in incredible condition, too as he continues this hard graft.

Genetic mutations may be linked to infertility, early menopause – Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

By daniellenierenberg

Visit the News Hub

Gene in fruit flies, worms, zebrafish, mice and people may help explain some fertility issues

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a gene that plays an important role in fertility across multiple species. Pictured is a normal fruit fly ovary (left) and a fruit fly ovary with this gene dialed down (right). Male and female animals missing this gene had substantially defective reproductive organs. The study could have implications for understanding human infertility and early menopause.

A new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis identifies a specific genes previously unknown role in fertility. When the gene is missing in fruit flies, roundworms, zebrafish and mice, the animals are infertile or lose their fertility unusually early but appear otherwise healthy. Analyzing genetic data in people, the researchers found an association between mutations in this gene and early menopause.

The study appears Aug. 28 in the journal Science Advances.

The human gene called nuclear envelope membrane protein 1 (NEMP1) is not widely studied. In animals, mutations in the equivalent gene had been linked to impaired eye development in frogs.

The researchers who made the new discovery were not trying to study fertility at all. Rather, they were using genetic techniques to find genes involved with eye development in the early embryos of fruit flies.

We blocked some gene expression in fruit flies but found that their eyes were fine, said senior author Helen McNeill, PhD, the Larry J. Shapiro and Carol-Ann Uetake-Shapiro Professor and a BJC Investigator at the School of Medicine. So, we started trying to figure out what other problems these animals might have. They appeared healthy, but to our surprise, it turned out they were completely sterile. We found they had substantially defective reproductive organs.

Though it varied a bit by species, males and females both had fertility problems when missing this gene. And in females, the researchers found that the envelope that contains the eggs nucleus the vital compartment that holds half of an organisms chromosomes looked like a floppy balloon.

This gene is expressed throughout the body, but we didnt see this floppy balloon structure in the nuclei of any other cells, said McNeill, also a professor of developmental biology. That was a hint wed stumbled across a gene that has a specific role in fertility. We saw the impact first in flies, but we knew the proteins are shared across species. With a group of wonderful collaborators, we also knocked this gene out in worms, zebrafish and mice. Its so exciting to see that this protein that is present in many cells throughout the body has such a specific role in fertility. Its not a huge leap to suspect it has a role in people as well.

To study this floppy balloon-like nuclear envelope, the researchers used a technique called atomic force microscopy to poke a needle into the cells, first penetrating the outer membrane and then the nucleuss membrane. The amount of force required to penetrate the membranes gives scientists a measure of their stiffness. While the outer membrane was of normal stiffness, the nucleuss membrane was much softer.

Its interesting to ask whether stiffness of the nuclear envelope of the egg is also important for fertility in people, McNeill said. We know there are variants in this gene associated with early menopause. And when we studied this defect in mice, we see that their ovaries have lost the pool of egg cells that theyre born with, which determines fertility over the lifespan. So, this finding provides a potential explanation for why women with mutations in this gene might have early menopause. When you lose your stock of eggs, you go into menopause.

On the left is a normal fruit fly ovary with hundreds of developing eggs. On the right is a fruit fly ovary that is totally missing the NEMP gene. It is poorly developed and no eggs are visible.

McNeill and her colleagues suspect that the nuclear envelope has to find a balance between being pliant enough to allow the chromosomes to align as they should for reproductive purposes but stiff enough to protect them from the ovarys stressful environment. With age, ovaries develop strands of collagen with potential to create mechanical stress not present in embryonic ovaries.

If you have a softer nucleus, maybe it cant handle that environment, McNeill said. This could be the cue that triggers the death of eggs. We dont know yet, but were planning studies to address this question.

Over the course of these studies, McNeill said they found only one other problem with the mice missing this specific gene: They were anemic, meaning they lacked red blood cells.

Normal adult red blood cells lack a nucleus, McNeill said. Theres a stage when the nuclear envelope has to condense and get expelled from the young red blood cell as it develops in the bone marrow. The red blood cells in these mice arent doing this properly and die at this stage. With a floppy nuclear envelope, we think young red blood cells are not surviving in another mechanically stressful situation.

The researchers would like to investigate whether women with fertility problems have mutations in NEMP1. To help establish whether such a link is causal, they have developed human embryonic stem cells that, using CRISPR gene-editing technology, were given specific mutations in NEMP1 listed in genetic databases as associated with infertility.

We can direct these stem cells to become eggs and see what effect these mutations have on the nuclear envelope, McNeill said. Its possible there are perfectly healthy women walking around who lack the NEMP protein. If this proves to cause infertility, at the very least this knowledge could offer an explanation. If it turns out that women who lack NEMP are infertile, more research must be done before we could start asking if there are ways to fix these mutations restore NEMP, for example, or find some other way to support nuclear envelope stiffness.

‘We got the match’: Happy news for family fighting four-year-old’s Darcy Keeley’s leukaemia – 7NEWS.com.au

By daniellenierenberg

A familys wishes have come true after an inspirational search for a bone marrow donor for Darcy Keeley, four, uncovered a match.

The young Perth boy was diagnosed in June with acute myeloid leukaemia, needing a bone marrow transplant.

Finding a match proved difficult and sparked the campaign Do it for Darcy.

His family took to social media, relentless in their pursuit to help their little boy.

When the story of the boy dubbed the little lion started to spread, thousands of people came forward to try to lend a hand.

Recently one of our most loyal, passionate and enthusiastic supporters, Darcy Keeley, was diagnosed with Leukaemia, requiring 6 months of intensive chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant, Hamersley Carine Footy Club posted on GoFundMe in July.

On their campaign Do it for Darcy, the family explained he was in isolation in Perth Childrens Hospital.

He needs a bone marrow donation and currently the national and international bone marrow registry is yet to find one, they wrote.

Thousands of people rallied around Darcy and his family, signing up to see if they were a potential match to be a donor.

On Thursday, his mum Casey announced in a heartfelt social media post they finally had a match.

IT HAPPENED... guys it actually happened!!! We got the match weve been waiting for! she said.

Darcys transplant doctor confirmed yesterday we have stem cells from some cord blood!

This is a huge relief and allows us to focus on the next step to recovery.

She said an employee at Lifeblood said literally thousands of people registered to try to help Darcy.

Casey also added that the campaign had subsequently led to many new donors.

There have been literally THOUSANDS of ABMDR [Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry] registrations and new donors as a result of our Do it for Darcy campaign, she said.

The mum said this would help people all around the world, adding they were proud of the awareness the campaign had created.

It is impossible to express our gratitude for all of you who have rallied behind us and registered to be bone marrow donors, donated blood products and spread the word, she said.

As parents, there is nothing more heartwarming than people supporting your child, especially in a time of need.

And the love we have felt wrapped around us [has] helped us as a family immensely.

The loving mother conceded that while they are only at the beginning of fighting this illness, this win will help them move forward.

She also encouraged people to keep spreading awareness.

This is not the end of the fight, Casey said.

Its really just the beginning.

The transplant process will be challenging, but for right now lets focus on this win.

YOUR HEALTH: When the body turns to crystals – WQAD.com

By daniellenierenberg

SAN DIEGO Cystinosis is a disease that slowly and aggressively attacks your organs, tissues, muscles, bones, eyes, even your brain.

It's a genetic disorder with no cure.

And right now, the only option for treatment is an army of pills to slow it down but missing even one dose can be devastating.

Now one man is "patient one", the first to try a new treatment that may save thousands of lives.

21-year old Jordan Janz is living with the rare, unrelenting disorder.

"I was diagnosed at eight months old and basically have been living with it my whole life."

In Jordan, cystine, an amino acid, gets trapped in his cells.

When cystine levels rise, crystals build up all over the body leaving a trail of damage... even causing him to vomit up to 13 times a day.

"It's not how strong you are physically," he said.

"I think it's how strong you are mentally when you come into this."

Traditional cystinosis treatments aim to slow the build up of cystine inside cells.

In order to do that Jordan takes 56 pills each day, but now he hopes to change that, Jordan is the first patient to test a unique gene therapy.

UC San Diego professor Stephanie Cherquie's took stem cells from Jordan's bone marrow, re-engineered the cells, introduced genes that will produce cystinosin, then reinfused Jordan with his own cystinosin-producing cells.

"So, then these cells become a source of healthy stem cells for the rest of the life of the patient," said Stephanie.

Jordan had to take chemo twice a day, but he hasn't let that scare him away.

"I'm doing this obviously for other cystinosis families, right?," said Jordan.

Hoping that many others after him will now get the chance at a better, longer life.

For those born with cystinosis who make it into adulthood, the average lifespan is around 28 years old.

We're told Jordan Janz is making a good recovery. though it is still too soon to tell his long-term prognosis.

If this story has impacted your life or prompted you or someone you know to seek or change treatments, please let us know by contacting Jim Mertens atjim.mertens@wqad.comor Marjorie Bekaert Thomas atmthomas@ivanhoe.com.

Method regrows cartilage to cushion bones – Futurity: Research News

By daniellenierenberg

Share this Article

Researchers have found a way, in mice and human tissue, to regenerate the cartilage that eases movement between bones.

Loss of this slippery and shock-absorbing tissue layer, called articular cartilage, is responsible for many cases of joint pain and arthritis, which afflicts more than 55 million Americans.

The researchers can envision a time when people are able to avoid getting arthritis in the first place by rejuvenating their cartilage before it is badly degraded.

Nearly 1 in 4 adult Americans suffer from arthritis, and far more are burdened by joint pain and inflammation generally.

The researchers figured out how to regrow articular cartilage by first causing slight injury to the joint tissue, then using chemical signals to steer the growth of skeletal stem cells as the injuries heal.

Cartilage has practically zero regenerative potential in adulthood, so once its injured or gone, what we can do for patients has been very limited, says co-senior author Charles K.F. Chan, assistant professor of surgery at Stanford Universitys School of Medicine.

Its extremely gratifying to find a way to help the body regrow this important tissue, Chan says.

The work builds on previous research that resulted in isolation of the skeletal stem cell, a self-renewing cell that is also responsible for the production of bone, cartilage and a special type of cell that helps blood cells develop in bone marrow.

Articular cartilage is a complex and specialized tissue that provides a slick and bouncy cushion between bones at the joints. When this cartilage is damaged by trauma, disease, or simply thins with age, bones can rub directly against each other, causing pain and inflammation, which can eventually result in arthritis.

Damaged cartilage can be treated through a technique called microfracture, in which tiny holes are drilled in the surface of a joint. The microfracture technique prompts the body to create new tissue in the joint, but the new tissue is not much like cartilage.

I realized the only way to understand the process was to look at what stem cells are doing after microfracture.

Microfracture results in what is called fibrocartilage, which is really more like scar tissue than natural cartilage, says Chan. It covers the bone and is better than nothing, but it doesnt have the bounce and elasticity of natural cartilage, and it tends to degrade relatively quickly.

The most recent research arose, in part, through the work of surgeon and lead author Matthew Murphy, a visiting researcher at Stanford who is now at the University of Manchester.

I never felt anyone really understood how microfracture really worked, Murphy says. I realized the only way to understand the process was to look at what stem cells are doing after microfracture.

For a long time, Chan says, people assumed that adult cartilage did not regenerate after injury because the tissue did not have many skeletal stem cells that could be activated. Working in a mouse model, the team documented that microfracture did activate skeletal stem cells. Left to their own devices, however, those activated skeletal stem cells regenerated fibrocartilage in the joint.

But what if the healing process after microfracture could be steered toward development of cartilage and away from fibrocartilage?

The researchers knew that as bone develops, cells must first go through a cartilage stage before turning into bone. They had the idea that they might encourage the skeletal stem cells in the joint to start along a path toward becoming bone, but stop the process at the cartilage stage.

The researchers used a powerful molecule called bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) to initiate bone formation after microfracture, but then stopped the process midway with a molecule that blocked another signaling molecule important in bone formation, called vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

What we ended up with was cartilage that is made of the same sort of cells as natural cartilage with comparable mechanical properties, unlike the fibrocartilage that we usually get, Chan says. It also restored mobility to osteoarthritic mice and significantly reduced their pain.

As a proof of principle that this might also work in humans, the researchers transferred human tissue into mice that were bred to not reject the tissue, and were able to show that human skeletal stem cells could be steered toward bone development but stopped at the cartilage stage.

The next stage of research is to conduct similar experiments in larger animals before starting human clinical trials. Murphy points out that because of the difficulty in working with very small mouse joints, there might be some improvements to the system they could make as they move into relatively larger joints.

The first human clinical trials might be for people who have arthritis in their fingers and toes. We might start with small joints, and if that works we would move up to larger joints like knees, Murphy says.

Right now, one of the most common surgeries for arthritis in the fingers is to have the bone at the base of the thumb taken out. In such cases we might try this to save the joint, and if it doesnt work we just take out the bone as we would have anyway. Theres a big potential for improvement, and the downside is that we would be back to where we were before.

One advantage of their discovery is that the main components of a potential therapy are approved as safe and effective by the FDA, says co-senior author Michael Longaker, professor of surgery.

BMP2 has already been approved for helping bone heal, and VEGF inhibitors are already used as anti-cancer therapies, he says. This would help speed the approval of any therapy we develop.

Joint replacement surgery has revolutionized how doctors treat arthritis and is very common: By age 80, 1 in 10 people will have a hip replacement and 1 in 20 will have a knee replaced. But such joint replacement is extremely invasive, has a limited lifespan and is performed only after arthritis hits and patients endure lasting pain.

The researchers say they can envision a time when people are able to avoid getting arthritis in the first place by rejuvenating their cartilage in their joints before it is badly degraded.

One idea is to follow a Jiffy Lube model of cartilage replenishment, Longaker says. You dont wait for damage to accumulateyou go in periodically and use this technique to boost your articular cartilage before you have a problem.

The work appears in the journal Nature Medicine.

Support for the research came from the National Institutes of Health, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the Oak Foundation, the Pitch Johnson Fund, the Gunn/Olivier Research Fund, the Stinehart/Reed Foundation, The Siebel Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the German Research Foundation, the PSRF National Endowment, National Center for Research Resources, the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation, the American Federation of Aging Research, and the Arthritis National Research Foundation.

Demand for Myelofibrosis Treatment Market to Witness Rapid Surge During the Period 2016 2022 – Scientect

By daniellenierenberg

Myelofibrosis or osteomyelofibrosis is a myeloproliferative disorder which is characterized by proliferation of abnormal clone of hematopoietic stem cells. Myelofibrosis is a rare type of chronic leukemia which affects the blood forming function of the bone marrow tissue. National Institute of Health (NIH) has listed it as a rare disease as the prevalence of myelofibrosis in UK is as low as 0.5 cases per 100,000 population. The cause of myelofibrosis is the genetic mutation in bone marrow stem cells. The disorder is found to occur mainly in the people of age 50 or more and shows no symptoms at an early stage. The common symptoms associated with myelofibrosis include weakness, fatigue, anemia, splenomegaly (spleen enlargement) and gout. However, the disease progresses very slowly and 10% of the patients eventually develop acute myeloid leukemia. Treatment options for myelofibrosis are mainly to prevent the complications associated with low blood count and splenomegaly.

The global market for myelofibrosis treatment is expected to grow moderately due to low incidence of a disease. However, increasing incidence of genetic disorders, lifestyle up-gradation and rise in smoking population are the factors which can boost the growth of global myelofibrosis treatment market. The high cost of therapy will the growth of global myelofibrosis treatment market.

As myelofibrosis is considered as non-curable disease treatment options mainly depend on visible symptoms of a disease. Primary stages of the myelofibrosis are treated with supportive therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. However, there are serious unmet needs in myelofibrosis treatment market due to lack of disease modifying agents. Approval of JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor Ruxolitinib in 2011 is considered as a breakthrough in myelofibrosis treatment. Stem cell transplantation for the treatment of myelofibrosis also holds tremendous potential for market growth but high cost of therapy is foreseen to limits the growth of the segment.

On the basis of treatment type, the global myelofibrosis treatment market has been segmented into blood transfusion, chemotherapy, androgen therapy and stem cell or bone marrow transplantation. Chemotherapy segment is expected to contribute major share due to easy availability of chemotherapeutic agents. Ruxolitinib is the only chemotherapeutic agent approved by the USFDA specifically for the treatment of myelofibrosis, which will drive the global myelofibrosis treatment market over the forecast period.

Geographically, global myelofibrosis treatment market is segmented into five regions viz. North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa. Northe America is anticipated to lead the global myelofibrosis treatment market due to comparatively high prevalence of the disease in the region.

Some of the key market players in the global myelofibrosis treatment market are Incyte Corporation, Novartis AG, Celgene Corporation, Mylan Pharmaceuticals Ulc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Eli Lilly and Company, Taro Pharmaceuticals Inc., AllCells LLC, Lonza Group Ltd., ATCC Inc. and others.

The effect of distance between holes on the structural stability of subchondral bone in microfracture surgery: a finite element model study – DocWire…

By daniellenierenberg

Background:Microfracture is a surgical technique that involves creating multiple holes of 3-4 mm depth in the subchondral bone to recruit stem cells in the bone marrow to the lesion, inducing fibrocartilage repair and knee cartilage regeneration. Recently, it has been reported that increasing the exposed area of the lower cartilaginous bone (drilling a lot of holes) increases the outflow of stem cells, which is expected to affect the physical properties of the subchondral bone when the exposed area is large. The purpose of this study was to analyse the effect of the distance between the holes in the microfracture procedure on the structural stability of the osteochondral bone using a finite element method.

Methods:In this study, lateral aspects of the femoral knee, which were removed during total knee arthroplasty were photographed using microtomography. The model was implemented using a solitary walks program, which is a three-dimensional simplified geometric representation based on the basic microtomography data. A microfracture model was created by drilling 4 mm-deep holes at 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, and 5 mm intervals in a simplified three-dimensional (3D) geometric femoral model. The structural stability of these models was analysed with the ABAQUS program. We compared the finite element model (FEM) based on the microtomography image and the simplified geometric finite element model.

Results:Von Mises stress of the subchondral bone plate barely increased, even when the distance between holes was set to 1 mm. Altering the distance between the holes had little impact on the structural stability of the subchondral bone plate. Safety factors were all below 1.

Conclusions:Although we did not confirm an optimal distance between holes, this study does provide reference data and an epidemiological basis for determining the optimal distance between the holes used in the microfracture procedure.

Researchers Get First-Ever Look at a Rare but Vital Stem Cell in Humans – Technology Networks

By daniellenierenberg

Neutrophils are the warriors of the immune system. They are always ready to spring to action to help heal injuries or fight off disease. Unless, that is, something goes wrong in their developmental process.Immature neutrophils arent all warriors they can be dangerous turncoats. High levels of immature neutrophils in the bloodstream can be a tell-tale sign of cancer and may even be a biomarker for COVID-19.

Now scientists at La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) have tracked down the rare stem cells that generate neutrophils in human bone marrow. This research, published in Immunity, gives researchers a potential path for intervening in diseases where neutrophil development goes awry.

We have identified the stem cells that are the early origins of neutrophils, the most abundant blood cell type in humans, says Huy Dinh, Ph.D., a former LJI postdoctoral associate who recently moved to a faculty position at The University of WisconsinMadison. Dinh led the study with LJI Professor Catherine C. Hedrick, Ph.D. Knowing how human neutrophils develop is especially relevant today because immature neutrophils have been found to be elevated in both the blood and lungs of severe COVID-19 patients.

Despite their importance, neutrophils have proven very hard to study. They dont hold up well outside the body, and the stem cells that make them are even harder to investigate because they only live in bone marrow.

In 2018, the Hedrick Lab reported the discovery of a group of progenitor stem cells that give rise to mature neutrophils. These progenitors sole job was to generate neutrophils, yet they appeared to also promote tumor growth. The researchers believed that detecting these progenitors could give doctors a better way to catch early cancer cases. But first, the team needed to know a lot more about neutrophil development.

The new research revealed a progenitor cell type that exists even earlier in human neutrophil development. Dinh, a past SPARK Award recipient, together with Tobias Eggert, Ph.D., a LJI visiting scientist and Melissa Meyer, Ph.D., a LJI postdoc, who served as the co-first authors in the study, spearheaded the effort to use a tool called cytometry by time-of-flight (CyTOF) to distinguish these rare cells from other types of immune progenitor cells. This work also made it possible for the researchers to identify more specific protein markers on this early progenitor cell surface.

The discovery of these protein markers was important because until now, scientists have used only a few of markers to track neutrophils over time. The new study gives scientists specific markers for tracking neutrophil development from day one.

The researchers also found that cases of skin and lung cancers are often accompanied by a flood of immature neutrophils including the early progenitor cells into the bloodstream. These immature neutrophils change as they interact with tumor cells, though the researchers arent sure yet how these changes affect cancer progression.

Dinh likens the stages of neutrophil development to the cars on a train. The early progenitors are like the train engine, keeping everything going smoothly along the track to maturity. Cancer shakes everything up, and immature neutrophils jump off the track before they reach maturity. Its like the train is falling apart, Dinh says.

Neutrophil development has been in the news recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as studies have shown immature neutrophils are also more abundant in some patients with COVID-19. Dinh and Hedrick think perhaps the threat of the virus prompts the body to churn out neutrophils too quickly, again forcing immature cells off the track to maturity.

We need to study this phenomenon further to see if these neutrophils can be tied to case prognosis or if they can be a drug target for COVID-19, says Dinh.

The researchers hope to continue their work to discover the exact mechanisms that stop neutrophils from reaching maturity. Knowing the earliest cell that gives rise to neutrophils is really critical for trying to target and control these cells, says Hedrick. But we dont know exactly how to do that yet.

Review of Trials Currently Testing Stem Cells for Treatment of Respiratory Diseases: Facts Known to Date and Possible Applications to COVID-19 -…

By daniellenierenberg

This article was originally published here

Stem Cell Rev Rep. 2020 Aug 22. doi: 10.1007/s12015-020-10033-6. Online ahead of print.

ABSTRACT

Therapeutic clinical and preclinical studies using cultured cells are on the rise, especially now that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a public health emergency of international concern, in January, 2020. Thus, this study aims to review the outcomes of ongoing clinical studies on stem cells in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The results will be associated with possible applications to COVID-19. Only three clinical trials related to stem cells are considered complete, whereby two are in Phase 1 and one is in Phase 2. Basically, the ongoing studies on coronavirus are using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from bone marrow or the umbilical cord to demonstrate their feasibility, safety, and tolerability. The studies not related to coronavirus are all in ARDS conditions; four of them are in Phase 1 and three in Phase 2. With the COVID-19 boom, many clinical trials are being carried out using different sources with an emphasis on MSC-based therapy used to inhibit inflammation. One of the biggest challenges in the current treatment of COVID-19 is the cytokine storm, however MSCs can prevent or mitigate this cytokine storm through their immunomodulatory capacity. We look forward to the results of the ongoing clinical trials to find a treatment for the disease. Researchers around the world are joining forces to help fight COVID-19. Stem cells used in the current clinical studies are a new therapeutic promise for COVID-19 where pharmacological treatments seem insufficient.Graphical Abstract.

Cartilage Is Grown in the Arthritic Joints of Mice – The New York Times

By daniellenierenberg

The researchers wanted to turn those awakened stem cells into cartilage. The recipe that worked was to treat the stem cells with bone morphogenetic protein, which is used to help fuse bones.

The scientists also used a drug called Avastin, which prevents the stem cells from getting a blood supply. Unlike bone and bone marrow, cartilage has no blood supply, and the drug helped stimulate the stem cells to turn into cartilage.

The investigators provided the drugs directly to the ends of bones, putting them in a gel.

The cartilage that grew in the mice not only looked like normal but lasted for four months, a quarter of the animals lifetimes. Dr. Chan and Dr. Longaker envision a time when doctors will be able to resurface arthritic joints or, even better, to treat people who are just beginning to develop arthritis, perhaps staving off the sort of damage that even joint replacements cannot fix.

If the strategy works in humans, then early treatment may be the best approach, Dr. Marx said.

Arthritis deforms joints and changes bones, he said. By the time people have hips or knees replaced, irreversible damage may be done. Legs may be bowed, bones damaged.

You cannot totally turn back the clock, Dr. Marx said. At that point, he said, adding cartilage will not fix it.

He worries, though, that orthopedists may not wait for rigorous studies the method of awakening the dormant cells is relatively simple, and the drugs required are already on the market.

Faced with a patient with aching knees, orthopedists may be tempted to say, Lets try this. You dont have much to lose, Dr. Marx noted.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute receives prestigious matching grant from the National Institutes of Health – Vail Daily News

By daniellenierenberg

Steadman Philippon Research Institute has been granted the prestigious Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials award from the National Institutes of Health. Steadman Philippon Research Institutes Chief Scientific Officer Johnny Huard, Ph.D. will serve as the principal investigator.

Marc J. Philippon, M.D., who serves as managing partner of The Steadman Clinic and co-chair of SPRI and Scott Tashman, Ph.D., director of biomedical engineering at SPRI, will serve as co-principal investigators. The clinical trials are expected to begin enrolling in the fall of 2020.

The award, administered by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, ranks as one of the most significant in SPRIs history, both in size and recognition. Given the potential of regenerative medicine to enhance human health and treat disease, the United States Congress included a provision in the 21st Century Cures Act a law passed in December 2016 to accelerate medical discovery and innovation to support the NIH-established Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project.

The Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project aims to accelerate the field by supporting clinical research on adult stem cells while promoting the highest standards for protecting patient safety during the conduct of research.

This is a really great honor for SPRI, said Huard in a news release. Past recipients of these RMIP awards have been Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Boston Childrens Hospital, Columbia University Health Sciences, Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, Harvard University, University of Colorado Denver and Yale University.So, we are in very good company.

Huard first came to Vail in 2015 and has served as the director of the Center for Regenerative Sports Medicine in addition to his role as the institutes chief scientific officer.

The grant anticipates over $2.8 million from the NIH and requires a 1:1 match from SPRI over the next five years, pending availability of federal funds. The clinical trials and resulting publications and reports will take place over the next five years. A generous SPRI benefactor committed to fund the first year of the match, and Dr. Huard is hopeful that with the NIH matching the funds, more philanthropists will be inspired to become involved in this groundbreaking project.

Our donors have been so generous in supporting all that we do here at SPRI, Huard said. And I am very grateful and confident that we will raise the funds necessary to complete these trials over the next five years.

The trial is entitled, The Use of Senolytic and Anti-Fibrotic Agents to Improve the Beneficial Effect of Bone Marrow Stem Cells for Osteoarthritis. Huard explains in laypersons terms:

The idea behind the trial is to delay osteoarthritis in the knee, Huard said. Our goal is to delay the need for that first knee replacement in a patient for as long as we can. Over time SPRI intends to expand this area of research to other joints including hip and shoulder.

This clinical trial is designed to determine whether senolytic and/or antifibrotic agents will improve the beneficial effect of bone marrow stem cells for the treatment of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. The trial will include four groups, totaling 100 patients, to investigate the teams hypothesis that the use of these agents will improve patient outcomes.

One of the great things that I love about this particular clinical trial is that we are actively involving our orthopedic surgeons and our biomotion lab staff as well, Huard said. This will truly be a team effort over the next five years.

Those world-class surgeons are led by Dr. Philippon, considered one of the worlds foremost orthopedic surgeons. The biomotion lab is under the direction of Dr. Tashman. The contributions of these two leaders and the talented roster of surgeons, clinicians and technicians in their departments will be critical to the success of the upcoming clinical trials. SPRIs Center for Outcomes-Based Orthopaedic Research and its director, Grant Dornan, are also participating in this project by contributing the statistical outcomes.

Dr. Philippon is not only a world-class surgeon but he is also an innovator, Huard said. He always wants to improve and is still willing to try new things to enhance patient outcomes. Dr. Tashman is the same way. Like everyone here at SPRI and The Steadman Clinic, they are embracing the cutting-edge technology available to them and finding new and better ways to treat patients and, most importantly, reduce patients recovery time and get them back to their active lives as quickly and safely as possible.

Huard notes that the rare combination of a globally recognized research institute like SPRI and a world-class orthopedic surgery clinic like The Steadman Clinic in the same building is one of the key factors in the awarding of this RMIP grant.

Weve got something here in Vail that many other research institutes dont have, Huard said. We have one of the worlds finest orthopedic clinics right next door, working hand-in-hand with us every day.

Dr. Huard and Dr. Tashman along with Suzanne Liv Page, J.D., our director of grants and contracts have worked diligently to prepare and gain acceptance of this grant proposal from the NIH, Philippon said. Our surgeons here at The Steadman Clinic eagerly await the opportunity to participate in the trial. Johnny, Scott and their staff have put SPRI into position to undertake major trials and studies like this one and we are all very honored that the NIH has given SPRI this incredible opportunity.

A bright future for genomics and gene therapy in the UK – Health Service Journal

By daniellenierenberg

This is paid-for content from our commercial partners.Find out more

So-called scientific breakthroughs are often in the headlines, but in reality, ground-breaking medical innovations adhere to a slow process characterised by cautious clinical experimentation and gradual but continuous improvement before reaching patients. After years of effort, gene therapy looks set to become a routine medical approach to address serious unmet medical need.

Sponsored by

There are two types of gene therapy approved for commercial use today. The first, in vivo, uses a modified virus, administered directly into the body to correct the target cells original genetic defect. The second, ex vivo, takes the patients own cells away from their body for genetic modification with a virus and then puts them back into the patient. Ex vivo gene therapy is dominated by two cell types; CD34+ haematopoietic stem cells (bone marrow stem cells) that can be modified to correct certain genetic disorders, and cytotoxic T-cells that can be altered and trained to kill cancerous cells.

The cell and gene therapy industry in the UK is supported by the formation and growth of many companies with promising assets in clinical development. This thriving biotech community is also supported by a robust and prosperous contingent of specialist manufacturing companies. These companies were key to the recent national covid-19 vaccine manufacturing response because the process for making genetically modified adenovirus such as the SARs-COV-02 vaccine, (as developed at the Oxford University Jenner Institute), is very similar to the process for making viruses for gene therapy.

UK leadership in gene therapy is no accident. As specified in our National Industrial Strategy, the UKs many research councils, in particular the Medicines Research Council, are active in funding the development and translation of treatments. In the UK right now, there are approximately 127 clinical trials testing new cell and gene therapy medicines, which represents 12 per cent of the global total. The government is readying the NHS to support these trials and transition these treatments into more common use through funding of the Advanced Therapy Treatment Centres (ATTC), a multiyear multi-million-pound project coordinated by the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult and comprising centres of excellence throughout the UK.

In the UK right now, there are approximately 127 clinical trials testing new cell and gene therapy medicines, which represents 12 per cent of the global total. The government is readying the NHS to support these trials

The ATTCs aim to develop and harmonise adoption of the one and done treatment paradigm by developing the appropriate frameworks and systems to support clinical adoption of these novel therapies. The ATTCs and the NHS are also working in partnership to develop novel medicines assessment and reimbursement paradigms which fairly recognise the ultra-long-term medical benefits that can accrue from a one-time gene therapy treatment. Increased adoption of gene therapy, which is proving to be an approach that can reduce the long-term healthcare burden of chronic disease management, has the potential to significantly lighten the NHS resources required for support of several chronic conditions.

As a future example of the UK commitment to gene therapies, we are also leading the practical application of genetic sequencing (genomics). Formation of the National Genomic Test Directory and support for the 100,000 genomes project by Genomics England are critical steps to improve the diagnosis of patients and identification of a new wave of one-off treatments that could be capable of delivering long-term clinical benefit.

Cell and gene therapies are a revolution in medicine and have even been described as the future of the healthcare system. When you consider that 80 per cent of rare diseases have a genetic component, these treatments could transform the prospects of thousands of people living with these conditions, creating a more economically sustainable and brighter future for them and their families.

Research Roundup: Lasting Immunity to COVID-19 and More – BioSpace

By daniellenierenberg

Every week there are numerous scientific studies published. Heres a look at some of the more interesting ones.

Multiple Studies Suggest Lasting Immunity to COVID-19 After Infection

Although probably not enough time has passed to know definitively, several studies are now suggesting that even mild cases of COVID-19 stimulate lasting immune responses, not only in disease-fighting antibodies, but in B- and T-cells.

Things are really working as theyre supposed to, Deepta Bhattacharya, an immunologist at the University of Arizona, and an author of one of the studies, told The New York Times.

Its difficult, probably impossible, to predict how long those immune responses will last, but many of the researchers believe the results are promising for long-term protection.

This is exactly what you would hope for, Marion Pepper, an immunologist at the University of Washington and an author of a study currently being reviewed by the journal Nature. All the pieces are there to have a totally protective immune response.

Pepper notes that the protective effects cant be completely evaluated until there is proof that people exposed to the virus a second time can fight it off. But the data suggests the immune system is indeed able to fight resistance a second time. Some of this qualification comes from unconfirmed reports of people being reinfected by the virus.

Antibody responses are typically relatively short-lived, disappearing from the blood weeks or months after being produced. Generally, the majority of the B-cells that produce antibodies die off, too. But the body keeps some longer-lived B-cells that are able to manufacture virus-fighting antibodies should the immune system be triggered by re-exposure to the virus. Some stay in the bloodstream while others wait in the bone marrow where they manufacture small numbers of antibodies that can sometimes be observed years, even decades later. Several studies, some by Bhattacharya and Pepper, have identified antibodies at low levels in the blood months after people recovered from COVID-19.

The antibodies decline, but they settle in what looks like a stable nadir, Bhattacharya said. These have been observed about three months after symptoms show up. The response looks perfectly durable.

Additional studies, including one published in the journal Cell, have isolated T-cells from recovered patients that can attack SARS-CoV-2. In laboratory studies, the T-cells produced signals to fight the virus and cloned themselves in large numbers to fight the potential infection.

This is very promising, said Smita Iyer, an immunologist at the University of California, Davis, who was not involved in the new studies, but has researched immune responses to the novel coronavirus in rhesus macaques. This calls for some optimism about herd immunity, and potentially a vaccine.

It's still has not been definitely determined if milder cases of COVID-19 will lead to long-term or even medium-term immunity. There have been some studies that suggest it does not and some newer studies suggesting it does. Iyer notes that the recent paper indicates, You can still get durable immunity without suffering the consequences of infection.

This idea is reinforced by Eun-Hyung Lee, an immunologist at Emory University who was not involved in these studies. He told The New York Times, Yes, you do develop immunity to this virus, and good immunity to this virus. Thats the message we want to get out there.

Why Seasonal Flu Vaccines Only Last a Year

As most everyone knows, flu vaccines only last about a year. Some of this is related to viral mutations. But in fact, the actual immunity itself caused by the vaccine does not appear to last longer than a year, even though the flu vaccine increases the number of antibody-producing cells specific for the flu in the bone marrow. Researchers out of Emory Vaccine Center found that for most newly-generated plasma cell lineages, between 70 and 99% of the cells were gone after one year, but that the levels of antibody-secreting cells in blood correlated with long-term response in the bone marrow.

Gut Bacteria Can Help Immuno-Oncology Therapies

Researchers with the University of Calgary identified gut bacteria that help our immune system fight cancerous tumors. This also helped provide more information about why immunotherapy works in some cases, but not others. By combining immunotherapy with specific microbial therapy, they believe they can help the immune system and immunotherapy be more effective in treating three types of cancer: melanoma, bladder and colorectal cancers. They found that specific bacteria were essential for immunotherapy to work in colorectal cancer tumors in germ-free mice. The bacteria produced a small molecule called inosine that interacts directly with T-cells and together with immunotherapy.

An Online Calculator to Predict Stroke Risk

Scientists at the University of Virginia Health System developed an online tool that measures the severity of a patients metabolic syndrome, a mix of conditions that includes high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels and excess body fat. With it, they can then predict the patients risk for ischemic stroke. The study discovered that stroke risk increased consistently with metabolic syndrome severity even in patients that did not have diabetes. The tool is available for free at https://metscalc.org/.

A Link Between Autism and Cholesterol

Researchers at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Northwestern University identified a subtype of autism that is the result of a cluster of genes that regulate cholesterol metabolism and brain development. They believe this information can help design precision-targeted therapies for this specific type of autism and improve screening efforts for earlier diagnosis of autism. They analyzed the DNA from brain samples that they then confirmed with the medical records of autistic individuals. They found that children with autism and their parents had significant alterations in lipid blood. However, there is much more to be understood, emphasizing the complexity of autism, which is affected by a variety of genetic and environmental factors.

Researchers Grow First Functioning Mini Human Heart Model

Investigators with Michigan State University grew the first miniature human heart model in the laboratory that is complete with all primary heart cell types and a functioning structure of chambers and vascular tissue. They utilized induced pluripotent stem cells which were obtained from consenting adults and created a functional mini heart in a few weeks. The primary value was in giving them an unprecedented view into how a fetal heart develops.

In the lab, we are currently using heart organoids to model congenital heart diseasethe most common birth defect in humans affecting nearly 1% of the newborn population, said Aitor Aguirre, senior author and assistant professor of biomedical engineering at MSUs Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering. With our heart organoids, we can study the origin of congenital heart disease and find ways to stop it.

Another area of focus is that improving on the final organoid will help with future research. Current heart organoids are not identical yet to human hearts and so are flawed in their use as research models.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI) Receives Multi-Million-Dollar Matching Grant from the National Institutes of Health – Yahoo Finance

By daniellenierenberg

Dr. Johnny Huard will be the Principal Investigator on five-year clinical trial that focuses on Bone Marrow Stem Cell treatments to delay onset of osteoarthritis in the knee

VAIL, Colorado, Aug. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI) has been granted the prestigious Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). SPRI Chief Scientific Officer Johnny Huard, Ph.D. will serve as the principal investigator. Marc J. Philippon, M.D., who serves as managing partner of The Steadman Clinic and co-chair of SPRI and Scott Tashman, Ph.D., director of biomedical engineering at SPRI, will serve as co-principal investigators. The clinical trials are expected to begin enrolling in the Fall of 2020.

The award, administered by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, ranks as one of the most significant in SPRIs history, both in size and recognition. Given the potential of regenerative medicine to enhance human health and treat disease, the United States Congress included a provision in the 21st Century Cures Act a law passed in December 2016 to accelerate medical discovery and innovation to support the NIH-established Regenerative Medicine Innovation Project (RMIP). The RMIP aims to accelerate the field by supporting clinical research on adult stem cells while promoting the highest standards for protecting patient safety during the conduct of research.

This is a really great honor for SPRI, said Dr. Huard, who first came to Vail in 2015 and has served as the director of the Center for Regenerative Sports Medicine in addition to his role as the institutes chief scientific officer. Past recipients of these RMIP awards have been Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Boston Childrens Hospital, Columbia University Health Sciences, Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, Harvard University, University of Colorado Denver and Yale University.So, we are in very good company.

The grant anticipates over $2.8 million from the NIH and requires a 1:1 match from SPRI over the next five years, pending availability of federal funds. The clinical trials and resulting publications and reports will take place over the next five years. A generous SPRI benefactor committed to fund the first year of the match, and Dr. Huard is hopeful that with the NIH matching the funds, more philanthropists will be inspired to become involved in this groundbreaking project.

Our donors have been so generous in supporting all that we do here at SPRI, said Dr. Huard, and I am very grateful and confident that we will raise the funds necessary to complete these trials over the next five years.

The trial is entitled,The Use of Senolytic and Anti-Fibrotic Agents to Improve the Beneficial Effect of Bone Marrow Stem Cells for Osteoarthritis. Huard explains in laypersons terms:

The idea behind the trial is to delay osteoarthritis in the knee, said Huard. Our goal is to delay the need for that first knee replacement in a patient for as long as we can. Over time SPRI intends to expand this area of research to other joints including hip and shoulder.

This clinical trial is designed to determine whether senolytic and/or antifibrotic agents will improve the beneficial effect of Bone Marrow Stem Cells for the treatment of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. The trial will include four groups, totaling 100 patients, to investigate the teams hypothesis that the use of these agents will improve patient outcomes.

One of the great things that I love about this particular clinical trial is that we are actively involving our orthopaedic surgeons and our biomotion lab staff as well, said Dr. Huard. This will truly be a team effort over the next five years.

Those world-class surgeons are led by Dr. Philippon, considered one of the worlds foremost orthopaedic surgeons. The biomotion lab is under the direction of Dr. Tashman. The contributions of these two leaders and the talented roster of surgeons, clinicians and technicians in their departments will be critical to the success of the upcoming clinical trials. SPRIs Center for Outcomes-Based Orthopaedic Research and its director Grant Dornan are also participating in this project by contributing the statistical outcomes.

Story continues

Dr. Philippon is not only a world-class surgeon but he is also an innovator, added Dr. Huard. He always wants to improve and is still willing to try new things to enhance patient outcomes. Dr. Tashman is the same way. Like everyone here at SPRI and The Steadman Clinic, they are embracing the cutting-edge technology available to them and finding new and better ways to treat patients and, most importantly, reduce patients recovery time and get them back to their active lives as quickly and safely as possible.

Huard notes that the rare combination of a globally recognized research institute like SPRI and a world-class orthopaedic surgery clinic like The Steadman Clinic in the same building is one of the key factors in the awarding of this RMIP grant.

Weve got something here in Vail that many other research institutes dont have, said Huard. We have one of the worlds finest orthopaedic clinics right next door, working hand-in-hand with us every day.

Dr. Huard and Dr. Tashman along with Suzanne Liv Page, J.D., our director of grants and contracts have worked diligently to prepare and gain acceptance of this grant proposal from the NIH, said Dr. Philippon. Our surgeons here at The Steadman Clinic eagerly await the opportunity to participate in the trial. Johnny, Scott and their staff have put SPRI into position to undertake major trials and studies like this one and we are all very honored that the NIH has given SPRI this incredible opportunity.

U.S. FDA Advisory Committee Votes Nine to One in Favor of Remestemcel-L (Ryoncil) for Efficacy in Children With Steroid-Refractory Acute Graft Versus…

By daniellenierenberg

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mesoblast Limited (Nasdaq:MESO; ASX:MSB), global leader in cellular medicines for inflammatory diseases, today announced that the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted overwhelmingly in favor that the available data support the efficacy of remestemcel-L (RYONCIL) in pediatric patients with steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease (SR-aGVHD).

Mesoblast Chief Medical Officer Dr Fred Grossman said: Steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease is an area of extreme need, especially in vulnerable children under 12 years old where there is no approved therapy. We are very encouraged by todays outcome and are committed to working closely with the FDA as they complete their review of our submission regarding approval of RYONCIL for this life-threatening complication of an allogeneic bone marrow transplant.

The ODAC is an independent panel of experts that evaluates efficacy and safety of data and makes appropriate recommendations to the FDA.Although the FDA will consider the recommendation of the panel, the final decision regarding the approval of the product is made solely by the FDA, and the recommendations by the panel are non-binding. RYONCIL has been accepted for Priority Review by the FDA with an action date of September 30, 2020, under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA). If approved by the PDUFA date, Mesoblast plans to launch RYONCIL in the United States in 2020.

Pediatric transplant physician Dr Joanne Kurtzberg, the Jerome Harris Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Pathology, and Director, Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at Duke University Medical Center, said: This devastating condition has an extremely poor prognosis and there are no FDA-approved options for children under the age of 12. The clinical studies I have directed have demonstrated the potential for this treatment to fill a significant unmet medical need.

The archived webcast is also available on the Investor page of the Companys website http://www.mesoblast.com

About Acute Graft Versus Host Disease Acute GVHD occurs in approximately 50% of patients who receive an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT). Over 30,000 patients worldwide undergo an allogeneic BMT annually, primarily during treatment for blood cancers, and these numbers are increasing.1 In patients with the most severe form of acute GVHD (Grade C/D or III/IV) mortality is as high as 90% despite optimal institutional standard of care.2,3 There are currently no FDA-approved treatments in the United States for children under 12 with SR-aGVHD, a potentially life-threatening complication of an allogeneic bone marrow transplant for blood cancer.

About RYONCILTM Mesoblasts lead product candidate, RYONCIL (remestemcel-L), is an investigational therapy comprising culture-expanded mesenchymal stem cells derived from the bone marrow of an unrelated donor. It is administered to patients in a series of intravenous infusions. RYONCIL is believed to have immunomodulatory properties to counteract the inflammatory processes that are implicated in steroid-refractory acute graft versus host disease by down-regulating the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, increasing production of anti-inflammatory cytokines, and enabling recruitment of naturally occurring anti-inflammatory cells to involved tissues.

Dexurs analysis of Medicare claims data showed that on an average, Kyprolis and Velcade have 14 to 16 claims per patient per year for Multiple Myeloma (MM) compared to Darzalex and Empliciti which have 9 claims per patient. The analysis was based on a sample of Medicare patients between Jan 2019 and Dec 2019, and looked at the J code usage of the drugs for the condition.The number of claims per patient data is a proxy for the number of injections / IV infusions / doses required by a patient. The study also tries to contrast the usage of these medications across three diagnosis categories- MM patients who have not achieved remission (C9000), MM patients in remission (C9001), and MM patients in relapse (C9002).

Multiple myeloma is a form of blood cancer that involves the neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells, a type of white blood cells formed within the bone marrow. While the earlier stages of the disease tend to be asymptomatic, patients may experience symptoms like bone pain, bleeding, frequent infections, and anemia with progression of the cancer. Although there is no cure for MM, a number of treatment options including chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy, can help in managing the progression of the disease and relieving the symptoms.

The drugs considered under this study are targeted therapies approved for the treatment of adult patients with multiple myeloma, alone or in combination with other medication. Unlike chemotherapy, these drugs specifically target the cancer cells and the mechanisms that support their growth, promising better results and fewer adverse effects. Kyprolis (carfilzomib) and Velcade (bortezomib) are proteasome inhibitors that can trigger apoptosis in cancer cells by blocking the action of proteasome, an enzyme complex that is critical in the regulation of cell-cycle. Darzalex (daratumumab) and Empliciti (elotuzumab) are monoclonal antibodies that enable the immune system to identify and kill cancer cells by targeting specific proteins on the cell surface.

The average usage of drug per patient was seen to be highest among MM patients who had not achieved remission, and least among MM patients in remission. An exception to this trend was Kyprolis, which had similar usage among patients in remission and patients in relapse, with the former having a marginally higher number of claims per patient.

Amgens Kyprolis had an average of 15.9 claims per patient in a year. The proteasome inhibitor indicated for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory MM, is used as a monotherapy, or as a combination therapy along with dexamethasone, or lenalidomide and dexamethasone.

Velcade, manufactured by Millennium Pharmaceuticals/Takeda Oncology in the U.S, had an average of 13.8 claims per patient in a year. It was noted to have the largest share of claims among the drugs, across the three diagnosis categories for multiple myeloma. Approved for the treatment of newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory myeloma, the drug is used alone or as a part of combination therapies.

Darzalex, a CD38-directed cytolytic antibody by Janssen Biotech, had an average of 9.9 claims per patient in a year for MM. It is indicated for the treatment of MM as a monotherapy or in combination with other drugs including lenalidomide, dexamethasone, and bortezomib.

Bristol-Myers Squibbs Empliciti had an average of 9.3 claims per patient. It is a SLAMF7-directed immunostimulatory antibody approved for the treatment of MM in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone, or pomalidomide and dexamethasone
