New Study Sheds Light on Cancer Stem Cell Regulation
“Researchers at Sanford-Burnham have discovered a precise stem cell signaling process that can lead to intestinal tumors if disrupted. The findings add to our understanding of how stem cells give rise to tumors and identify specific stem cell molecules that may be targeted to prevent the onset, progression, and recurrence of intestinal cancers. The results of the study appeared online in Cell Reports.”
British-Israeli Research Partnership Announces Funding for New Medical Initiatives.
In another exciting inter-continental regenerative medicine partnership, Great Britain and Israel have announced a bilateral research program in stem cell and regenerative medicine research. Funding will be distributed to eleven institutions throughout both countries. British Prime Minister David Cameron said, “In so many areas our scientists are working together and engaged in some of the most significant projects of our age. Their research has the potential to change the lives of hundreds of millions of people.”

Changing Stem Cell Structure May Help Fight Obesity
Scientists have found that reducing the size of tiny hair-like structures on stem cells stops them from turning into fat. The discovery could be used to develop a way of preventing obesity.

Japan: Government to Back 3rd-party Cell Medical Products
Japan’s Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry plans to support the creation of regenerative medical products made with cells harvested from teeth, cartilage and other tissue discarded after treatment. Currently, regenerative medical products used in Japan are made from patients’ own cells, while the ministry envisions a new framework that will harvest cells at medical institutions and then go through a mediator company or organization before being delivered to a manufacturer.

Hope for Diabetics? – A Pancreas in a Capsule
The first human trial of a type 1 diabetes treatment using stem cells has finally begun. This fall, a San Diego man had two pouches of lab-grown pancreas cells, derived from human embryonic stem cells, inserted into his body through incisions in his back. The current test is mostly meant to test for safety, at least two other groups say they’ve also controlled diabetes in rodents and may soon start human trials of their own.
The Ohio State University and India’s AIIMS Announce Partnership/Launch of Regenerative Medicine Facility


O-H…..I-N-D-I-A! A new partnership was announced at the “H3C: Healthcare, Commerce, Career” Conference in Mumbai. The Ohio State University and India’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will now partner to establish a new regenerative medicine facility on the campus of AIIMS.
