Mammary stem cell marker

Patent Number: 7,563,619
Cancer stem cells are considered the "Seed" or the "root" of the cancer, and like chopping down a tree, if you dont remove the root, the cancer grows back.  Cancer stem cells are resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.  Therefore if there was a way to selectively purify or extract cancer stem cells, it would make it a lot easier...

Soft tissue repair and regeneration using postpartum-derived cells

Patent Number: 7,560,276
Despite the fact the Celgene through Bob Hariri owns the majority of the placental tissue cells, this patent, assigned to Ethicon, seems to circumvent some of the Celgene claims and covers use of CD117 negative cells from placenta for wound healing.The patent covers a method of stimulating soft tissue infiltration in a tissue defect by adding umbilical...

Compositions and methods for generating skin

Patent Number: 7,560,275
This patent covers a mammalian cell that has properties of spores and is useful for regeneration of new skin.  Its first independent claim is:A population of isolated mammalian or avian multipotent spore-like cells (MSLCs) isolated or cultured from skin tissue and which can differentiate into two or more mature skin cell type cells. wherein the MSLCs, when first isolated, are approximately...

Method for reducing neuronal degeneration so as to ameliorate the effects of injury or disease

Patent Number: 7,560,102
This patent teaches methods of stimulating nervous system regeneration by activating an immune response against the nervous system.  Specifically, stimulation of immunity against antigens in the central nervous system such as myelin is associated with induction of autoimmunity, for example in the animal model of multiple sclerosis called experimental allergic...

Human cord blood derived unrestricted somatic stem cells (USSC)

Patent Number: 7,560,280
This is the composition of matter patent for the unrestricted somatic stem cell (USSC) that was under development by Viacell.  These cells appear to have pluripotent properties as listed in the examples section. The first independent claim of the patent covers:"An isolated unrestricted somatic stem cell (USSC) prepared from human umbilical cord blood or placental blood, wherein said USSC...

Human cord blood derived unrestricted somatic stem cells (USSC)

Patent Number: 7,556,801
An argument made in the popular media is that adult stem cells are healing people "today", whereas embryonic stem cells are a thing of the future.  In priniciple this is correct, however, my stomach turns when the proponents of adult stem cells use the example of "bone marrow transplantation".  Bone marrow transplantation, while it is a sort of "stem cell...

Stromal antigen-presenting cells and use thereof

Patent Number: 7,553,661
Mesenchymal stem cells are known to possess a variety of immune modulatory activities such as suppression of allogeneic responses, as well as induction of T regulatory cells.  Mechanisms include expression of IDO and HLA-G.  Mesenchymal stem cells have been demonstrated effective in patients with Inventors: Galipeau; Jacques (Town of Mount-Royal, CA), Stagg; John (Montreal, CA)

Directed in vitro differentiation of marrow stromal cells into neural cell progenitors

Patent Number: 7,547,545
This patent covers the generation of neurons from mesenchymal stem cells, or like the inventor calls them "mesenchymal stromal cells", which is the more politically correct way of naming them.Very broad claims are issued, the first one being: "A method of producing a neural progenitor cell, said method comprising contacting an isolated bone...

Progenitor cells from wharton's jelly of human umbilical cord

Patent Number: 7,547,546
This patent covers methods of extracting an adherent mesenchymal-like stem cells from the Wharton's Jelly of the umbilical cord.  The extracted cells are negative for MHC and are termed by the inventors human umbilical cord perivascular (HUCPV) cells.  In the examples section the the cells are demonstrated to be capable of differentiating into osteocytes, chondrocytes, adipocytes, and...
