Some of the deadliest skin cancers may start in your hair – Siliconrepublic.com

By daniellenierenberg

Cells responsible for our hair colour could also be the starting point for some of the deadliest skin cancers.

Scientists in the US have discovered an unexpected origin of deadly skin cancers. In a paper published to Nature Communications, a team from NYU showed that some of these cancers may originate in stem cells in the hair follicles that give it colour, rather than in skin layers.

Hair follicles exist within skin layers as complex organs, but the study has shown that immature pigment-making cells may develop cancer-causing genetic changes, exacerbated by exposure to normal hair growth signals.

Previous models of this disease had put forward the idea that ultraviolet radiation through sunlight was a major risk factor in melanoma. However, this latest study argued that triggers may always be there in hair follicles. Unlike normal follicles, newly cancerous pigment stem cells migrate up and out of the follicles to establish melanomas in nearby surface skin before spreading deeper, it said.

The teams focus was on stem cells that mature into melanocytes, cells that make the protein pigment melanin, which typically protect skin by absorbing the suns damaging rays. By absorbing some wavelengths of visible light but reflecting others, pigments create hair colour.

In testing, specially bred mice were used with an ability to edit genes in follicular melanocyte stem cells only, which could be easily tracked. This confirmed melanoma cells can arise from melanocyte stem cells, which abnormally migrate up and out of hair follicles to enter the outermost layer of the skin.

They continued to move deeper into the skin layer where they not only shed their follicular origins, but also acquired signatures similar to neurons and skin cells almost exactly like those seen in human melanoma tissue.

By knowing where to look for the original, cancer-causing event, the researchers temporarily eliminated signals one by one in the follicular environment to see if cancer still formed in their absence.

Our mouse model is the first to demonstrate that follicular oncogenic melanocyte stem cells can establish melanomas, which promises to make it useful in identifying new diagnostics and treatments for melanoma, said the studys first author Qi Sun.

While our findings will require confirmation in further human testing, they argue that melanoma can arise in pigment stem cells originating both in follicles and in skin layers, such that some melanomas have multiple stem cells of origin.

Lymphatic System Discovered To Play Key Role in Hair Regeneration – Technology Networks

By daniellenierenberg

Given the amount of wear and tear its subjected to on a daily basis, the skin has a phenomenal ability to replenish itself. Spread throughout it are small reservoirs of stem cells, nested within supportive microenvironments called niches, which keep a tight rein on this repair process. Too much tissue might cause problems like cancer, while too little might accelerate aging.

Until now, scientists were uncertain whether the stem cells themselves could instruct other stem cells to form new skin by reshaping their niche. But new research in Science, led by Elaine Fuchs, the Rebecca C. Lancefield Professor, indicates that stem cells can indeed influence tissue regeneration. The study identifies a molecular coordination tool used by stem cells to signal across niches.

The researchers also discovered a new component of the niche: a specialized type of vessel called lymphatic capillaries, which transport immune cells and drain excess fluids and toxins from tissues. These capillaries form an intimate network around the stem cell niche within each hair follicle, the study showed, thereby interconnecting all its niches.

By turning the skin completely transparent, says postdoctoral fellow Shiri Gur-Cohen, we were able to reveal the complex architecture of this network of tubes.

Hair-follicle stem cells control the behavior of lymphatic capillaries by secreting molecules that act as an on-off switch for drainage, the scientists found, enabling them to control the composition of fluids and cells in the surrounding locale and ultimately synchronize regeneration across the tissue.

The involvement of the lymphatic system in this process is a new concept, says Fuchs, and might potentially provide new therapeutic targets for lymph-related conditions such as wound-healing defects and hair loss.

UM Today | UM Today the Magazine | Fall 2019 | After the Fire – UM Today

By daniellenierenberg

Twenty seconds. Give or take.

Spencer Beach cant say for sure just how long he was on fire.

Long enough to stumble to two exitstwiceand yank on door handles that wouldnt budge.

The flash fire that engulfed him in an Edmonton home was sucking in all the oxygen, creating a vacuum that sealed him inside. A flooring installer by trade, he had been removing linoleum in the laundry rooma rush job since the manufacturer mislabelled the boxes and the contractor didnt want to incur penalties for a delay. Beach and the rest of the crew were often told to use their boss homemade shortcut: douse the flooring in a contact thinner to reactivate the glue. That way, you could just peel it off.

He was on his hands and knees when he first heard a whistle as loud as a thousand kettles, followed by a boom as the furnace set the fumes alight.

Now the skin on his face felt like it was shrinking. His lips, like theyd been swarmed by bees.

The heat was inside of me. It wasnt like any burn youve ever felt, Beach says. It was everywhere.

With no way out, he curled up on the floor, interlocking his fingers behind his head. His mind flashed to his wife, Tina, blonde and four months pregnant with their first child. He had just left her a voice message: the job was nearly done, he was the only one left, hed be home soon. Tonight, hed plan his buddys stag party.

Beach got to his feet and tried the door one more time.

In his right hand, Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty holds a pair of scissors. In his left, a piece of paper grabbed from the many stacks in his office at Winnipegs Health Sciences Centre (HSC), where he is head of the burn unit.

The surgeon is stumped.

Hes trying to remember the strategic cuts to make for a trick he would do as a kid. Its a paper craft that turns a 4-by-5-inch sheet into an open shape large enough to walk through.

What am I doing wrong?

Logsetty wants to use the analogy to explain the skin graft meshing techniques he routinely does for patients whove suffered severe burns to large swaths of their body. The techniques also use strategic cutsto expand pieces of skin up to nine times their original size.

Every centimetre counts in these life-saving reconstructive surgeries where patches of unharmed skin are removed from one site to cover another, explains the University of Manitoba professor of surgery and psychiatry.

Ta da, he says, holding up the large paper circle. Damn, that was driving me insane.

Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty's curiosity about suturing goes back to age four, to Hyderabad, India, where he would hang around the medical clinic run by his great-aunt // PHOTO BY DAVID LIPNOWSKI [BA(HONS)/08]

Finding solutions is what the 51-year-old has spent decades doing, to alleviate pain and hardship for burn patients. Each one of my research projects, he says, reflects a patients journey.

Logsetty knows Beachs well, having operated on him more than a dozen times. He was working the day Beach was rushed to University of Alberta Hospital. The surgeon remembers how this 29-year-oldwith burns to more than 90 per cent of his bodywas more worried about how others would handle the news than he was his own chances for survival (about five per cent).

Even afterwards, hes always thought about how he can help other people and how he can use his experience to help them get through, says Logsetty, who brought his expertise to UM in 2007.

One persons recovery involves a slew of professionals.

Beyond nurses to do dressing changes, there are dietitians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers. On the burn ward at HSC, the team includes UM students across disciplines. The unit admits 100 to 200 patients a year, and treats another 250 to 400 (including cases of frostbite and flesh-eating disease). About 40 per cent of patients are children. Among the adults, the majority are men, who tend to engage in riskier behaviour than women, Logsetty notes.

When compared to other health conditions, theres an added layer. With any burn, theres a sense of guilt. Did I do something that caused this? Especially as a parent. That adds to the burden, says Logsetty. Its different than something spontaneous like cancer, where it isnt that they left the oil on the stove for too long or didnt check the temperature when they put their child in the bathtub.

With any burn, theres a sense of guilt. Did I do something that caused this? Especially as a parent. That adds to the burden. SARVESH LOGSETTY

Among 20- to 60-year-olds, burns are most often flame-related mishaps involving cooking oils catching fire, accelerants flashing back while burning grass, or house fires erupting in the night, Logsetty says. Burns from scalding are most common in kids and the elderly.

His research probes what social determinants increase your chances. A study released with UM psychiatrist Dr. Jitender Sareen [MD/95, BSc(Med)/95] last year showed people with a low income were as much as five times more likely to suffer burns. And the researchers mapped high-incidence areas in Winnipeg for policymakers to target prevention strategies.

Logsetty offers a window into the daily challenges on the burn unit. Within its dual-chamber isolation rooms, theres an ongoing battle against infection, down to the microscopic fibres of hospital curtains that may harbour antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Burn patients face a far greater risk because their injuries arent straightforward open wounds. Theres dead skin sitting there, providing a perfect food source for bacteria. And because the skin is dead, theres no link to the bodys blood. No trigger to get infection-fighting white blood cells to activate and defend. So the bacteria can happily grow, getting stronger, says Logsetty. The risk of infection is really high.

The seeping wounds are kept covered and clean. Peeling off the dressings can be excruciatingly painful and take hours. No matter what we use, the dressings tend to stick, says Logsetty. This agony is what drives him and UM collaborator Song Liu, a medical microbiology and infectious diseases researcher, also in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, in their efforts to reinvent the burn bandage.

Together, theyre developing not only a less sticky coating but a dressing they hope will transform burn care. Theyre designing a fabric to detect infection, alert medical staff by changing colour, and then release antibiotics from withinall without having to remove it, Logsetty says.

Different colours would indicate different bugs. If the spot of colour were to grow bigger, it would tell nurses the infection wasnt getting any better. The bandage will be made of nanofibres, or straw-like chemical structures that break down when they come into contact with bacterial enzymes. The centres will be filled with either a liquid to release dye or a liquid containing the antibiotic. A bandage that both diagnoses and treats infection would be a first in the field. Logsetty says they could have a tangible product in as little as five years.

Liu also holds a patent for an antibiotic-resistant fabric, which could one day mean self-cleaning hospital curtains. He bonded a chlorine-like chemical to the curtain that kills bacteria on contact, one that not only wont wash out in the laundry but is reactivated by water. One of Logsettys recent studies showed that, within two weeks of being washed, five out of eight untreated hospital curtains tested positive for antibiotic-resistant MRSA.

Leather hiking boots. Leather knee pads. A leather work belt. Beach didnt think twice about the gear he put on the morning of Aug. 24, 2003. (But he did contemplate calling in sickjust a feeling that he should, but one he ignored.)

The leather is what saved the less than 10 per cent of Beachs body surface that wasnt burned. His feet below the ankles. A patch in the middle of each knee. His waistline.

Theres a line around my waist where you could see where my belt was, he says.

Only once the vapours and air pressure subsided in the home was he able to open the door to the garage and escape. A neighbour then came running with a hose.

Since that day, Beach has undergone 38 surgeries.

His burns reveal the most severe form: third- and fourth-degree, which tear through the epidermis and dermis and extend into the muscle, fat and bones. At first, these sites (that appear white or charred-black) are the least painful for patients, since the flames have destroyed the nerve endings.

While lesser burns can heal on their ownas cells lining our sweat ducts and hair follicles automatically spread out to rebuildsevere burns require grafting.

Skin from Beachs feet is now on his face. As is skin from his knees and hip. Pieces of his foreskin form his delicate, upper eyelids while skin from his scrotum shapes his lower.

Logsetty can use meshing instruments that stretch and expand what small percentage of skin survivesthe graphs look like criss-crossed grids, almost translucentbut each time he does, the skin gets thinner, leaving more room for scar tissue to fill in the gaps. Its the scarring that leads to chronic pain.

[With Beach] I had to take three per cent and expand it into more than 90 per cent, somehow or another, says Logsetty. The key to advancing burn care, he says, is to develop ways to grow better skin.

[With Beach] I had to take three per cent and expand it into more than 90 per cent, somehow or another. SARVESH LOGSETTY

Beach received synthetic skin, as well as skin from cadavers, before new skin was cultured from his own cells. With Logsetty at the helm, Beach became the firstand is still the onlyCanadian to receive a unique, double-layer skin thats more resilient than anything thats come before. A sample of his skin, the size of a business card, was cultured in a lab in Cincinnati, OH, and then multiplied time and time again to eventually cover nearly half his body.

Experimental in the early 2000s, the technique is still innovative today, says Logsetty, but not yet widely available because the company has faced hurdles bringing it to market. From an overall standards of burn care, its a gamechanger, he says.

Even though there are still improvements to makethe skin doesnt contain pigment, hair follicles or sweat ducts (so on a hot summer day, Beach has to watch for heat stroke)it means less scarring and greater quality of life, says Logsetty.

Hes also in the process of developing a research project at UM that will explore new ways to use stem cells to create skin, and is collaborating with a Quebec company, Loex, on a similarly robust skin alternative.

Skin-grafting surgeries can be marathons of endurance and difficulty. An intensive operation can take 12 hours, but shorter is best since patients are already so unstable going in. The temperature of the room is kept at 29.9C to prevent patients from becoming hypothermic. Their whole body is exposed on the tablein order to graft different areasand without skin, theyre without a key organ that helps regulate body temperature. When our temperature drops, we bleed more, so theres also a greater risk of bleeding out on the table. Disposable warming blankets, inflated with warm air, help retain heat.

In the stifling environment, Logsetty and the team wear surgical gowns made of Gortex or other waterproof fabrics. (One of his research projects studies the effects on the medical team, including how much weight they lose from sweat during a procedure.)

On this ward, named after Manitoba firefighters, the mortality rate is less than three per cent, on par with the top burn centres across North America, notes Logsetty. Not many of their patients are firefighters nowadays, given how safety training and gear have evolved. But unfortunately, when they do become injured, he says, its usually devastating.

Nine months after the fire, Beach rolled over for the first time. He had lost 63 pounds and at six-foot-two was down to 112. The scar tissue had built up on his ligaments and tendons, and his muscles were wasting away with atrophy. The movement was small but it felt like a big win that came just in time. After the fire, he was angry, depressed, suicidal; now he wanted to see what else he could do for himself.

With progress comes greater survival rates, which mean more people living with the long-term consequences of burn injuries like disability, financial problems and chronic pain. Trauma survivors are at least four times more likely to take their own life, Logsetty and Sareen revealed in a 2014 study. Theyve since discovered theyre also twice as likely to have depression, anxiety or substance-abuse issues.

The standard of care I try to hold myself toand teach my studentsis What would you expect for you or your loved one? SARVESH LOGSETTY

Logsetty says patients often tell him they dont want to go on. He helps them reintegrate with the life they once had, as much as possible. Its not, I fixed your hernia, your sutures are out, you can call me if you have a problem. There is a continuity of care we dont see in most other surgery.

Thats why hes made this his lifes work. One patient describes Logsetty as the most caring and considerate doctor I have ever met; another says he created a place of love in the burn unit.

The only burn expert between Edmonton and Toronto, he makes himself available 24-7 to residents and nurses, even when not officially on call. The standard of care I try to hold myself toand teach my studentsis What would you expect for you or your loved one? says the father of two kids (under age seven), and husband to epidemiologist Rae Spiwak [BA(Adv)/00, MSc/04, PhD/17], who also studies mental-health issues in trauma patients. The biggest thing Ive learned is that life can change in an instant.

This summer, Logsetty spoke at Winnipegs inaugural Face Equality Awareness event for people living with facial differences. Its important, he adds, to help people understand that, although the outside of somebody might have changed, the inside is still the samepart of what our team does really well is help burn survivors come to that understanding themselves.

It was Beachs wife who held up the mirror for him the first time, only once hed consulted with a psychologist. He couldnt bring himself to look beyond his nose, with its missing lobes and exposed bridge. Gone was the dimpled grin of a guy who was always the life of the party.

Now, if kids stare at the grocery store, hell engage with a smile and a wave. Often, they think hes just really olda grandpa, not a father, to his kids, he says. When adults approach, which hes totally fine with, its always the same question: Can I ask what happened?

Beach doesnt have photos of what he used to look like up in his house, only because theyre not picture people. And no longer does he appear as his former self in his dreams.

Im extremely proud of who I am, Beach says.

Hes a motivational speaker who finds fulfillment in trying to create positive change in the workplacewhos spoken to Winnipeg workers about putting safety before money and supervisors demands. But his life isnt without ongoing challenges.

He has nerve damage and reduced mobility in his joints.

(He says he has the equivalent of seven-and-a-half fingers, since doctors had to amputate portions, up until they found blood flow.) And with some stubborn wounds that wont heal, he regularly gets blood infections20 in the last 10 years. Nonetheless, he renovated his basement and next, hell build a fence.

Im extremely proud of who I am. SPENCER BEACH

With burn survivors like Beach, Logsetty notes, The scar doesnt define them. They define themselves.

In a recent Facebook post, he signed off one tough son-of-a Beach.

You want to be the person you used to be, Beach says, but now you have a different body to do it with.

He returnedjust onceto the site where it happened. Where a new house now stands.

I had to see it.

Early in his career Dr. Sarvesh Logsetty saw how each burn unit across the country was labouring in its own bubble. We have some very good burn centres across Canadapeople are doing great work and researchbut we didnt really work together as a burn program in Canada as a community.

When he joined UM in 2007 he established the Advancement of Burn Care Network and made Winnipeg its base. And last year he launched the Canadian Burn Association and annual symposium further connecting the multidisciplinary players in burn care including firefighters and survivors to learn whats working whats not and what to try next.

He says research in burn treatments is grossly underfunded since there are fewer champions for the cause. Were still at the infancy of really understanding wound healing says Logsetty how to improve it how to avoid scars where we can and how we can make them better.

While the frequency of burns has dropped dramatically since the 1960swith greater safety awareness smoke detectors and legislation to safeguard water heaterstrauma as a whole is still the leading cause of death in Canadians 40 and under. It costs the system more money than just about any other health-care problem thats out there, yet we barely hear about traumatic injury says Logsetty who as a general surgeon is also tasked with removing knives from abdomens after weekend violence, or bowels burst in car collisions. In the last week alone hes removed two spleens ruptured in crashes.

What frustrates me from an academic perspective is that trauma doesnt have a home. There is no institute for traumait gets lumped in under muscoskeletal health and arthritis. That means, in terms of resources, were struggling with identification of the importance of trauma and struggling with helping people understand why we do the research we do and how it affects the people that it affects.

Meet the biohackers seeking to turbocharge their bodies and minds – Euronews

By daniellenierenberg

Biohackers believe that we should be using all the technology available to make our bodies and minds work the best they can in everyday life. And they held a summit about it in Helsinki over the weekend

Most people who've heard of Biohacking think of electronic chips inserted under the skin - Cyborg stuff. But here they're promoting a wearable ring to measure the body.

People like Ramsey who's testing out a machine which steadily takes the body to air conditions you'd expect at high altitude...believe in using all the information and modern technology available to optimse human performance.

"I feel amazing - mentally and cognitively - like a stoic. I wake up every morning feeling like the Hulk," says Ramsey Morgan - Biohacker from Seattle, USA.

The movement is trying to make itself more mainstream and accessible.

"That can be like nutrition and diet, that can be taking a sauna, that can be just meditating, that can be injecting yourself with stem cells or something like that. All of these things are exapmles of Biohacking. You're changing your physiological state in order to achieve a certain goal," explains Siim Land - Estonian Biohacker.

And while most of us probably don't get enough sleep, the Biohackers say there's vibration technology to help.

"It affects to the nervous system by calming down the sypathetic side, the fight and fleet [flight] side. So basically, when you calm that down, the sleep comes naturally. You don't have to take any pills or anything," says Katja Nyman - Neurosonic.

One of the products here at the Biohackers summit is the Vielight Neuron, and our reporter, Jack Parrock tested it out.

"This a photobiomodulation device , so this applicator goes inside your nostril like that. And then the headpiece goes on top of your head," Gennady Lemud, VieLight Communications and Marketing Director tells our reporter.

The light rays being pumped onto my head and up my nose are intended to increase oxygenation in the blood and boost performance and happiness. But at well over 15 hundred euros, these devices aren't cheap.

Some Biohackers use blood tests to regularly check their liver function. One of the most controversial aspects of Biohacking is DNA testing. The medical community is still cautious and there are concerns about the data that's harvested by companies. They say there's nothing to worry about.

"We're looking at a few snips, a few genes...100...nothing. So we can't use that information for anything more than delivering information back to you as the consumer or the customer," says Chris Moore - Nordic Laboratories

It's not all so technical - getting in a sauna and a 4 degree celsius bath is enough for some Biohackers. But with the ever evolving technological world we live in - these guys think they're the future.

Light-activated pancreatic cells produce insulin on demand – New Atlas

By daniellenierenberg

Diabetes is one of the leading health problems in our modern world and requires the careful management of a patients insulin levels. New research from Tufts University may make that process a little easier. In mouse tests, the team implanted beta cells that produce more insulin on demand, when theyre activated by blue light.

At the heart of both types of diabetes is insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels, allowing cells in the body to properly use it as energy. In type I diabetes, beta cells in the pancreas dont produce enough insulin, sometimes because the immune system destroys those vital beta cells. In type II diabetes, a patients cells stop responding to insulin, or the pancreas cant keep up with demand, meaning blood glucose levels spike to dangerous highs.

Managing the condition requires constant monitoring of blood sugar levels and boosting insulin levels as needed, either by directly injecting the hormone or through drugs that amplify the beta cells production of it.

For the new study, the Tufts researchers engineered pancreatic beta cells that can produce insulin on demand in this case, that demand is pulses of blue light. The beta cells were engineered with a gene that creates an enzyme called photoactivatable adenylate cyclase (PAC) essentially, when these enzymes are activated by blue light, they produce a molecule called cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).

In turn, this molecule instructs the beta cell to produce more insulin, but interestingly, it will only do so when theres already a high level of glucose. That helps to prevent a common complication of diabetes treatments, where producing too much insulin can cause the body to consume the available glucose too quickly, resulting in low blood sugar.

To test the new technique, the Tufts team implanted their engineered pancreatic beta cells under the skin of diabetic mice. The researchers found that the cells produced between two and three times more insulin when triggered by blue light and high glucose levels. Importantly, when they fired up the blue light while glucose was low, there was no bump in insulin, indicating that the failsafe worked.

In this way, we can help in a diabetic context to better control and maintain appropriate levels of glucose without pharmacological intervention, says Emmanuel Tzanakakis, corresponding author of the study. The cells do the work of insulin production naturally and the regulatory circuits within them work the same; we just boost the amount of cAMP transiently in beta cells to get them to make more insulin only when its needed.

Similar studies have shown promise in managing diabetes with implanted beta cells either synthetic versions or natural ones produced from a patients own stem cells. Theres still plenty of work to do before this type of treatment makes it to human trials, but the researchers say that using light is a step in the right direction.

There are several advantages to using light to control treatment, says Fan Zhang, first author of the study. Obviously, the response is immediate; and despite the increased secretion of insulin, the amount of oxygen consumed by the cells does not change significantly as our study shows. Oxygen starvation is a common problem in studies involving transplanted pancreatic cells.

Ultimately, tiny sources of light could be embedded alongside the cells, allowing doctors to trigger them remotely when needed. Or they could be automatically activated by a glucose sensor, to fully close the loop.

The research was published in the journal ACS Synthetic Biology.

Woman Who Was Attacked By Cat Sues the Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki – Legal Reader

By daniellenierenberg

Leslie Mansfield, a California resident who enjoys running a Napa Valley winery and writing cookbooks filed a lawsuit against the Outrigger Canoe Club in Waikiki after her foot was allegedly attacked by a cat. Eventually, the bite marks caused a rare, incurable condition known as host versus graft disease, prompting Mansfield to file the suit.

The incident occurred in September 2015 when Leslie and her husband were visiting the Outrigger Canoe Club to celebrate the end of her leukemia treatments. In the middle of having lunch at the clubs Hau Terrace restaurant, a cat suddenly jumped from a nearby bush and attacked her foot. Mansfield said, all of a sudden I felt this unbelievable sharp, excruciating biteWithin a week it was worse and the bite marks were black and it was really frightening.

According to the lawsuit, the infection from the bite continued to worsen and eventually she began to develop lesions in her mouth, on her skin, and throughout her body. She said, the lesions in my mouth are so swollen around my tongue and cheeks I have deep crevasse-like cuts in the roof of my mouth.

How did a simple cat bite get so infected, though? Well, because Mansfield had recently undergone a stem cell transplant, the bite compromised her immune system. According to Mansfield, who had stem cells donated from her brother, doctors told her that when she got bit by the cat, those cells not only began attacking the pathogens introduced by the cat but they also started to attack her system.

As a result, Mansfield experiences regular painful flares that leave her exhausted and unable to do much of anything. Her quality of life has been diminished and she blames the Outrigger Canoe club that harbored the cat.

When commenting on the matter, attorney Jim Bickerton who is representing Mansfield said, the cat spent its entire existence on those premises. It wasnt a stray that lived somewhere else and came visiting. This was home for this cat. He added that under Hawaii law, the club is not only responsible for the cat bite but its also responsible for the subsequent damage to his clients immune system. He said, if someone has very brittle bones, for example, and they take a small fallYou or I might just fracture a bone or not even have a fracture but they have fractures in 20 places. The person who caused that fall owns all of the damage.

In response to the lawsuit, a spokesperson for the club said, The health, safety, and well-being of all of our members, guests and staff are of primary importance to the Outrigger.

The suit is expected to go to trial next August.

Pear tart and pear butter recipes a delicious way to enjoy the fruit – The Gazette

By daniellenierenberg

By Robin Mather, Chicago Tribune

Apples may get all of autumns accolades, but its time for pears to muscle in on the action.

Understanding which pear varieties are best for which uses will help you choose wisely from the fruit youll see at farmers markets, farm stands and grocery stores.

You can eat any pear raw, from juicy Bartletts to crisp Asian pears. But in cooking, you may want the pear to retain its shape, or you may want it to melt into a concentrated sauce. I remember pear varieties that hold their shape for poached pears, and for the pear tart we offer here with a simple mnemonic of ABC: Anjou, Bosc and Comice.

Some varieties are more grainy or gritty than others but peeling any pear will help reduce that graininess. As pears ripen on the tree, they develop stone cells, and most of these lie just under the skin. Most pears are harvested before theyre fully ripe for this reason. While the skin is full of nutrients, sometimes you just want that grittiness to go away.

Like apples, cut pears will brown when exposed to air. For salads and other raw uses where appearance is important, place the pears in water acidulated with lemon juice for a quick bath to prevent browning.

These are the varieties youre likely to see this season, with a bit of information about them and their best uses.

Anjou: Firm and mild flavored, Anjous are good for cooking where you want the pear to pick up the flavors of its cooking companions. Red and green Anjous have the same flavor.

Asian: As crisp as a ripe apple, Asian pears are very mild in flavor. Theyre the outlier in the pear family, more apple than pear.

Bartlett: The juiciest of all the pears, a ripe Bartlett will leave your chin dripping when you eat it out of hand. Choose red or green Bartletts when you want the fruit to cook into a sauce, as we do in the vanilla-cardamom pear butter recipe here.

Bosc: Crisp and mildly sweet, Boscs are the classic choice for poached pears. Theyre easy to recognize because of their cinnamon-colored russeted skin. They tend to be a nice size as well.

Comice: Brightly flavored with the quintessential pear taste, Comice pears are less grainy than many other varieties.

Concorde: A favorite in Europe, the Concorde has a long neck that makes it immediately identifiable. Its distinctively vanilla flavor makes it a favorite for roasting and grilling, but its also great out of hand.

Forelle: A pretty speckled pear thats popular in Europe, this small pear is best for snacking. Its name comes from the German word for trout, because its colors echo the flashing brilliance of the fish. Grown in small quantities in the Pacific Northwest, Forelle tells you its ripe when the skin under its red speckles turns from green to yellow.

French butter: Small with concentrated flavors, make sure French butter pears are fully ripe before use. Underripe fruit has a sharp, tannic flavor. Good for snacking, or in salads.

Seckel: Just as with French butter pears, make sure the little Seckel pears are fully ripe before eating to avoid a tannic hit. Best out of hand, or in salads.

PEAR-ALMOND TART

This simple tart will look and taste more impressive than its simple ingredients might suggest. Remember that you want pears that will hold their shape for this tart. If you cant find creme fraiche, substitute lightly sweetened sour cream as a garnish at serving time.

Prep: 30 minutes

Cook: 40 minutes

Makes: about 12 servings

Crust:

2 1/4 cups ground almond meal

4 1/2 tablespoons sugar

8 tablespoons melted salted butter

Filling:

2 cups sugar, divided use (plus more for browning)

3 Anjou, Bosc or Comice pears, peeled, sliced in half

1 1/2 cups milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup sliced toasted almonds

Creme fraiche, sweetened sour cream or whipped cream

For the crust: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine almond meal, sugar and melted butter in a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Pat the crust mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 12-inch tart pan and press into place with the bottom of a drinking glass. Bake the crust until just colored, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely before filling.

For the filling: Heat 4 cups water and 1 1/2 cups sugar to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low. Add the pears; poach until tender, 20-25 minutes. Remove pears from the syrup. Allow to cool, then cut out cores. Cut the pears into fans by slicing into 1/4-inch slices that remain attached by about 1/2 inch at the stem end. Set aside.

Combine milk and vanilla in a small saucepan and bring it to just a simmer over medium heat. (Dont let it boil over.) Combine eggs, remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the flour in a large saucepan. Temper the mixture by slowly whisking in a little of the hot milk. Then gradually whisk in the rest. Cook, whisking continuously, over medium heat. At the first sign of a boil, 3 to 6 minutes, remove pan from the heat while continuing to whisk until mixture begins to thicken. Allow the custard to cool.

Spoon cooled custard into the tart shell. Lay the fanned-out pears, stem end inward, in the custard. Scatter the sliced almonds over top. Sprinkle with 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar. Heat the broiler in the oven. Place the tart on the middle rack, 4 to 5 inches from the broil. Serve warm with creme fraiche, sweetened sour cream or whipped cream.

VANILLA-CARDAMOM PEAR BUTTER

Prep: 35 minutes

Cook: 8-10 hours

Makes: about 7 half-pints

Youll definitely want to use ripe Bartlett pears for this fruit butter because they cook into a silky puree. Making this pear butter in the slow cooker means you dont have to stand over it while it cooks. Weve given directions to both can and freeze this sumptuous delight.

6 1/2 pounds Bartlett pears, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Juice of 1 large lemon

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

Tumble all ingredients except butter into a slow cooker. Stir to blend, then cover and cook on low until the pear butter is very thick and mounds on a spoon, 8 to 10 hours. Test its readiness by placing a spoonful on a plate; if no liquid escapes around the edges, the pear butter is ready. If it weeps, continue to cook with the lid crosswise to allow excess liquid to evaporate.

Stir in the butter until it is fully melted. Ladle the hot pear butter into sterile half-pint jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. To can, apply lids and rings just until finger tight; process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. To freeze, allow the pear butter to cool to room temperature, then freeze without lids. Once pear butter is frozen, add lids and freeze for up to six months.

Stem Cell Therapy: What’s Real and What’s Not at California’s For-Profit Clinics – UCSF News Services

By daniellenierenberg

Many for-profit stem cell clinics advertise therapies that are not backed by science and may actually cause harm.

For-profit stem cell clinics have popped up around California in recent years, advertising that they can treat everything from arthritis to Alzheimers, without FDA approval.

They claim that injections of stem cells (naturally occurring blank slate cells that can grow into any type of cell) can help alleviate pain or illness by replacing or regenerating diseased tissue claims that are not supported by existing research. The procedures can cost thousands of dollars out-of-pocket, and regulators have warned that patients have developed tumors, suffered infections and even lost eyesight after unapproved procedures.

No one knows how many clinics there are, but California reportedly has more than any other state. We asked Arnold Kriegstein, MD, PhD, director of the UC San Francisco Developmental & Stem Cell Biology Program, about whats real and whats not in stem cell medicine.

How do these clinics operate?

There has been an explosion of so-called clinics offering stem cell treatments for a wide range of ailments, none of which have been shown to be effective. They are largely unregulated. Many clinics claim that they can treat untreatable illnesses like Alzheimer's disease, autism, muscular dystrophy, or stroke. The list is quite extensive.

The majority are using fat tissue for their stem cells, obtained through liposuction. These are usually autologous cells, which means that they are taking the patient's own tissue and extracting cells to re-administer to the same patient, usually through an intravenous route. In addition to fat cells, some clinics administer bone marrow stem cells or umbilical cord or placental stem cells, which come from unrelated donors.

The clinics often advertise through testimonials from patients who've received their therapies. Many of the conditions that the testimonials address are the kinds that normally improve or fluctuate over time, such as joint pain, low back pain, arthritis, or multiple sclerosis.

The problem is that patients will receive a treatment, and then, within a month or two, they'll notice that the aches and pains in the joints are improving, and they will attribute the improvement to the stem cell therapy, when in fact it would've happened regardless.

What is the risk of trying an unproven stem cell treatment?

Reports of physical harm have included infections and the development of tumors. When using cells that are not the patients own, umbilical cord cells for example, immune responses can occur often triggering inflammatory conditions.

In cases where stem cells have been delivered into the eye, blindness has been reported, and when they have been delivered to the central nervous system through lumbar puncture (spinal tap), adverse outcomes including serious infections of the central nervous system and tumors have occurred.

Then there's the emotional cost associated with raising false hope, and the financial loss that comes from exorbitant fees charged for ineffective, potentially harmful therapies.

Why arent there more legitimate stem cell therapies available?

Stem cells have been in the news so much over the last decade or so that I think it has created the impression that therapies are already on the market. The reality is that it is very early days for the science. The most interesting, most promising animal studies are only now beginning to be translated into clinical trials, and the process for approval of therapies takes many years and very few are likely to succeed.

Unfortunately, the public needs to be patient, but the good news is that potential treatments are progressing along the pipeline.

What are some examples of proven stem cell therapies?

For the last 50 years or so, there have been countless patients successfully treated with hematopoietic stem cells, commonly known as bone marrow transplants. This remains the prototype for how a stem cell therapy can work. Other successful examples include corneal stem cell grafts for certain eye conditions, and skin grafts for burn victims.

There are efforts to see if stem cells could successfully treat diseases like Parkinson's and diabetes, particularly type 1 diabetes. There are clinical trials testing whether stem cell therapy might work against macular degeneration, a blinding disease that is very common as people age. There are also early stage clinical trials for nervous system disorders including stroke, spinal cord injury, and ALS (Lou Gehrigs disease).

All of these examples are still at a very early stage, where the primary goal is to make sure that the approaches are safe. To determine if they are effective will require large, well-controlled, relatively long-term clinical trials.

What will it take to advance stem cell therapy into more real treatments?

This is where basic research comes in. The field is evolving quickly, there's much to be done, and there's still a huge amount of promise in stem cell therapies down the road. But it's going to take a lot of very careful and very laborious research before we get there.

Organ donations: What you can do to help save a life – Calgary Herald

By daniellenierenberg

Saving the life of a fellow Canadian can be as easy as checking a box online or saying yes to being an organ donor when you renew your drivers license. But, thats just the beginning for those wanting to make a difference.

Deceased donations

In Alberta, individuals over the age of 18 can register their intent to become an organ or tissue donor when they die by using the Alberta Organ and Tissue Donation Registry. (Go to myhealth.alberta.ca online and search organ donation registry.) As well, agents and provincial registries are required to ask the donor question when clients are renewing a drivers licence or identification card.

For those who have Alberta Health Cards issued prior to 2018, the back of the card can be signed (with a witness) to declare their intention to donate.

The Alberta registry has been integrated into the provinces health care system through the use of donor co-ordinators. If a person has declared his or her intent to donate and is in a position to be considered for organ or tissue donation, a co-ordinator will discuss it with family members, who ultimately make the final decision.

Each deceased donor can provide up to eight organs (both lungs, both kidneys, liver, heart, pancreas, intestines), while donated tissues can benefit up to 75 individuals.

Living donations

The vast majority of living organ donors spares one of their two functioning kidneys to a person in need, though living liver donations also occur to a lesser extent.

In most cases, family members or acquaintances donate a living organ if theyre healthy enough to safely act as a donor. Once a viable donor is found, transplant programs in both Calgary and Edmonton perform the surgeries for kidneys, while live liver transplants are only performed in Edmonton.

Theres also been a rise in so-called altruistic donors, who are willing to share their organs with a stranger. Both the Kidney Foundation of Canada and Canadian Blood Services can advise prospective living donors on where to turn, while Alberta Health can connect donors to local living donor programs.

Canadian Blood Services also operates the Kidney Paired Donation Program, an inter-provincial initiative that maintains prospective donors in a registry if they arent a compatible match for their intended recipient. Since January 2009, some 500 living donors across Canada have entered the KPD program, including 90 anonymous donors who joined the program without a specific recipient in mind. Non-directed, anonymous donations are responsible for more than two-thirds of the transplants in the KPD program, and all patients with a match have received a transplant in less than a year.

The Living Donor Services Program Edmonton: Phone 780-407-8698; toll free 1-866-253-6833; email: livingdonors@ahs.ca.

Southern Alberta Transplant Program Calgary: Phone 403-944-4635.

More information on kidney health is available from the Kidney Foundation of Canada: http://www.kidney.ca; 780-451-6900 or 403-255-6108.

More information on liver health is available from the Canadian Liver Foundation: http://www.liver.ca; 403-276-3390 or 1-800-563-5483.

Details about Green Shirt Day and Logan Boulet are at greenshirtday.ca.

Stem cell donations

Stem cell transplants replace a patients unhealthy stem cells with a donors healthy ones, and can be used to treat cancers and other diseases. The three sources of stem cells are from bone marrow, peripheral (circulating) blood and umbilical cord blood.

Prior to any donation, the donor will undergo a comprehensive health assessment before undergoing the procedure. Peripheral blood stem cell donation only requires blood to be drawn from a needle in hospital following five days of under-the-skin injections to boost the number of blood cells in the bloodstream.

Bone marrow donations are performed under anesthesia, with hollow needles used to withdraw stem cells from bone marrow in the back of pelvic bones. The procedure lasts between 45 to 90 minutes and the marrow replenishes itself in four to six weeks.

Those who wish to become a stem cell donor can call Canadian Blood Services at 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) or by visiting the agencys website at blood.ca.

Plant bioactives, combining tradition with technology – Cosmetics Business

By daniellenierenberg

31-Oct-2019

Ingredients

Since ancient times medicinal plants have been used for their health beneficial properties, to protect and promote the skin and for treatment of various diseases.

Plantshave an enormous capacity to produce complex chemical molecules with bioactive properties.The market for botanicals is expanding with an increasing demand for plant bioactives. It is therefore important to produce the plant raw material a sustainable way. Often traditional production does not support this.

Plant cell cultivation enables sustainable production of high-quality plant raw material. Based on this technique it is possible to target and enrich specific cell types, such as plant stem cells.

Since the cultivation takes place in a clean and controlled environment, the produced plant raw material is free from adulteration, pollution, pesticides and herbicides. Besides cell enrichment, it is further possible to increase the production of bioactives through the MET (Metabolic Enhancement Technology).

For bioactives it is also important to consider their availability in the final product, otherwise their beneficial properties will not be available to our cells. Some bioactives are not available in dry cells even when these are grinded.

This can be due to that they are tightly bound to a cell structure, such as the cell wall. However, these can be made accessible through extraction where these actives are released from their bound position.

The extract with the highest quality and health beneficial properties are high in concentration and standardised to selected actives or group of molecules. This way it is possible to ensure that the extract is always the same in terms of properties and efficacy.

In vitro Plant-tech develops and produces high quality plant raw material and extracts using the plant cell cultivation technology. We are proud of our green and sustainable production platform, producing superior products with compassion for nature.

Restore your crowning glory with recombinant DNA tech – The New Paper

By daniellenierenberg

Hair care is being taken to the next level, by utilising recombinant DNA technology to restore one's confidence and crowning glory.

Such hair restoration products or treatments are made using recombinant DNA - or DNA cloning - where selected pieces of DNA from different organisms are combined to construct artificial DNA.

At Ageless Medi-Aesthetics, its latest AnteAge MD Hair Treatment is a non-invasive procedure that involves applying the AnteAge MD Hair Growth Factor solution or serum - made from potent recombinant growth factors and cytokines - onto skin prepared with microneedling.

Dr Lam Bee Lan, director of Ageless Medi-Aesthetics, told The New Paper: "Recombinant DNA technology is more efficient in producing large amounts of artificial messenger proteins effective for skin and hair renewal compared with stem cells derived from plants."

Methods of hair restoration are often divided into two broad categories - invasive techniques and topical and/or oral solutions. They can either be expensive or linked to side effects such as erectile dysfunction, ejaculatory dysfunction and loss of libido.

But Dr Lam cautioned that before treatments are prescribed, patients must consult with a physician to ascertain if they are suitable for them.

"Treatments based on recombinant DNA technology should be worked in as a first-line treatment when you start to experience more hair loss than usual, or as part of a regular routine in maintaining a full head of hair.

"For more severe hair loss, patients should consider a hair transplant," she said.

While there are minimal side effects such as occasional soreness and redness that will resolve within one to two hours, Dr Lam noted that most patients will experience slowing down of hair loss after the first session, while new hair will grow after the second session.

Home-grown scalp specialist PHS Hairscience has also explored stem cell technology and cell signalling technology since 2014 to treat hair loss or greying hair on the cellular level.

Ms Anita Wong, its chief executive and founder, told TNP: "As the body ages or changes due to reasons such as stress or lifestyle choices, cell functions can deteriorate, and cell activity that directly impacts new hair growth or melanin (hair pigment) production becomes less than optimal."

PHS Hairscience's marquee treatment, Miracle Stem Cell Solution, leverages on stem cell science and cell signalling to reactivate dormant follicle cells to promote hair growth. At $297 a session, it can be complemented with the FEM/HOM Thickening range of products.

She said: "These active botanical stem cells also work to increase the life span of hair follicles so your hair can remain in the anagen (growth) phase of the hair growth cycle for a longer period of time.

"Keeping the hair in this growth phase will maximise the length and thickness of new hair, as well as stop the existing strands from shedding."

Delivering the promise of regenerative medicine – PMLiVE

By daniellenierenberg

The question remains unanswered as to whether a peer-to-peer collaborative model will prosper where medtech companies that are in some instances one step ahead of big pharma in terms of drug development are happy to be a third- party provider to big pharma that have the budgets and networks to truly deliver the regenerative medicine revolution.

In a recent document published by the UK government in response to the Regenerative Medicine Inquiry by the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, policymakers stressed the importance of commercialising new therapies to meet the changing needs of the health sector.

In the UK, the Regenerative Medicine Expert Group (RMEG) has been tasked with developing an NHS regenerative medicine strategy to ensure the NHS is fully prepared to deliver innovative treatment and that regulations support and not hinder its delivery.

The Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult is also continuing to work to bridge the gap between translational research and commercialisation.

However, for the UK to be well-positioned to offer safe and effective regenerative therapies, a strategy is needed that covers the whole value chain from academic research, commercial development and clinical application.

The effect of Brexit on the UKs regenerative medicine sector remains unclear, but the UK has the opportunity to develop an independent framework outside the EU regulatory system to accelerate the development of new therapies and its economic potential while upholding the highest patient safety standards.

In any case, EU and UK regulators need to prioritise the standardisation of regulations governing manufacturing, quality control and the supply chain to keep up with advancements made by the FDA in the US.

Establishing an efficient supply chain for regenerative medicine

The promise of regenerative medicine requires an innovative look at the complete product life cycle, including the development of an efficient distribution network.

Once these novel drugs become mainstream, the entire healthcare ecosystem will have to adapt. Regulatory approval for any drug relies on it safely and successfully fulfilling its medical intent.

As such, information about supply chain management needs to be submitted to the regulator after the completion of phase 3 clinical trials, including packaging, labelling, storage and distribution.

The clinical supply chains required to deliver these therapies are arguably the most complex the industry has seen so far. Regenerative medicine is either personalised or matched to the donor-recipient. They are also highly sensitive to exogenous factors like time and temperature.

Advanced IT solutions and monitoring systems are being developed and employed to ensure end-to-end traceability. These are giving clinicians access to view the progress of therapies and their distribution in real-time and allow users to automatically schedule or amend material collections in line with manufacturing capacity, helping to keep the supply chain as agile as possible.

The live tissues and cells which form the basis of regenerative medicine products are highly sensitive and some have a shelf life of no more than a few hours.

Therefore, materials need to be transported from the site of harvest to manufacturing facilities, and from manufacturing facilities to medical institutions under strictly controlled conditions, within certain times and temperatures, according to cell and tissue requirements.

Temperature-controlled logistics solutions are vital to ensure a safe, effective and financially viable supply chain network for these high-value shipments. Cryopreservation is one technique increasingly being used to deliver medicines at optimum temperature using vapour phase nitrogen; however, many clinical settings remain ill-equipped to handle such equipment.

On-site production is an alternative manufacturing arrangement, particularly for autologous products which are derived from a patients own cells.

However, this throws up a number of compliance and infrastructure challenges, as the hospital would need to comply with a host of regulations including installing a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)-licensed clean room.

As a first-generation technology, stakeholders will have a greater tolerance for higher pricing... but only for a limited time period. By streamlining the currently very expensive manufacturing process and improving supply chain management, yields will automatically get larger and costs will slowly come down.

While there are many challenges in the road ahead, 2019 certainly appears to be the start of regenerative medicines move to the big time.

Sharing an adorable photo of the tot, who she shares with her husband Matthew Wolfenden, she wrote: "We decided to store Aces stem cells. As parents every single one of us wants to do whats best for our children. When I was pregnant, I heard about the possibility of collecting and storing my baby's umbilical cord stem cells, which could then be used in the future should they be needed for treatment (I hope with every part of me we never need it).

"After researching, we learned that the baby's umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells, and these cells can be collected at birth and stored.

"These could then be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Currently, there are over 80 diseases cord blood stem cells can treat. I decided to use Smart Cells to store the stem cells: the process was easy (genuinely) and they organised everything.

"Like I said, we hope we never need to use them, but it's comforting to know that we have them stored if we ever do. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and Im so grateful we were able to do this. Xx".

Many parents rushed to voice their approval, with one commenting: "Amazing! Such an important thing and I think every parent should consider doing this as it may save a life so respect for you. And Ace is so cute."

Bloomberg Philanthropies, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and The New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute Announce an…

By daniellenierenberg

NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Philanthropies, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM), and The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute today announced an initiative to fundamentally advance and expand the science of precision medicine, in which diagnostic disease markers are defined with pinpoint accuracy to help researchers understand disease pathways and customize therapeutic approaches. The collaboration will combine the renowned clinical and medical expertise of Johns Hopkins with the unique stem cell technologies and research capabilities of the NYSCF Research Institute to accelerate Hopkins' pioneering Precision Medicine Initiatives.

"Johns Hopkins is working intensively to realize the great promise of precision medicine for all those in our care, locally and globally," said Johns Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels. "This significant new collaboration with Bloomberg Philanthropies and NYSCF moves us ever closer to that aim as we join together our far-reaching research capacities to advance knowledge and deliver better health outcomes for populations and people around the world."

This collaboration will also establish an unprecedented cache of human disease models available to researchers worldwide thus promoting the real world application of precision medicine and driving a new paradigm for understanding and improving the approach to human disease.

"Bloomberg Philanthropies' mission is to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people," said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies. "For years, Johns Hopkins University and the New York Stem Cell Foundation have shared that mission and we're honored to deepen our partnerships with them as they explore new, innovative ways to save lives through the application of precision medicine."

Diseases manifest themselves differently in different patients. To understand the basis of these differences and to tailor treatments for specific patients, researchers need more accurate biological tools. Stem cell models provide a "biological avatar" of the patient from which they were created, allowing scientists and clinicians to better understand, define, and account for differences in individual patients and groups of patients.

The new initiative will use induced pluripotent stem cells to study disease characteristics in subgroups of patients, identifying markers that lead to varying disease manifestations. For example, by examining stem cells from seemingly similar patients with different forms of multiple sclerosis, we may be able to better understand the full range of disease mechanisms and pathways.

The Johns Hopkins Precision Medicine Initiative already includes 16 Precision Medicine Centers of Excellence (PMCOE), each focusing on a specific disease, and is now working to develop 50 Precision Medicine Centers in the next five years. Johns Hopkins believes that this advancement in the study and application of precision medicine has the potential to transform the diagnosis and management of many diseases.Often, what is now categorized as a single disease is actually made up ofmultiple diseases that display similar symptoms, but require quite different therapies. Using a wide range of data sources, precision medicine seeks to better elucidate these differences, so that doctors can treat patients with precisely targeted therapies. At Johns Hopkins, dozens of researchers are bringing this idea to reality across a spectrum of debilitating and life-altering diseases.

In this collaboration, the process will begin with the full consent of patients in JHUSOM PMCOEs who wish to participate. Biological samples from the JHUSOM PMCOEs will be collected by the NYSCF Research Institute where scientists will create stem cell models of disease using the NYSCF Global Stem Cell Array, the world's first end-to-end automated system for generating human stem cells in a parallel, highly controlled process.Integrating robotics and machine learning, NYSCF's technology reprograms skin or blood cells into stem cells, differentiates them into disease-relevant cell types, and performs genome editing to unravel the genetic basis of disease.

"The NYSCF Research Institute has invented and scaled the most advanced methods of human cell manipulation, which is critical for studying disease at the level of the individual patient," explained NYSCF CEO Susan L. Solomon. "By combining our capabilities with Johns Hopkins' extensive clinical data and expertise, we will be able to develop effective, personalized therapies for patients suffering from diseases with a high unmet need."

The stem cells generated by NYSCF will be used to research and drive effective therapeutic and diagnostic development in a wide range of diseases that include, but are not limited to, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, chronic renal failure, and cancers of the lung, breast, prostate, pancreas, and bladder. These stem cell lines will reside in the NYSCF Repository and serve as an extraordinary resource in perpetuity for the disease research community. This vast collection will allow scientists unprecedented insights into the biochemical and genetic mechanisms underlying different diseases and subtypes thereof, thereby illuminating avenues for effective, tailored interventions.

"Stem cell science holds enormous potential for the treatment of a wide range of diseases," said Paul B. Rothman, dean of the School of Medicine and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine. "By combining this approach with Johns Hopkins' groundbreaking work on precision medicine, we are creating a scientific powerhouse that will help us advance medicine and science at an even faster pace. I am excited to see the discoveries and innovations that will be produced by this collaboration."
