Method of expanding undifferentiated hemopoietic stem cells

Patent Number: 7,534,609
Expansion of hematopoietic stem cells would, at face value, allow the possibility of curing many hematological diseases by the process of selecting non-leukemic stem cells, ex vivo expanding them, and providing them back to the patient after myeloablation has destroyed the resident malignant cells.Pluristem (Nasdaq:PSTI) is developing adult...

Angiogenically effective unit dose of FGF-2 and method of use

Patent Number: 7,541,333
Stimulation of therapeutic angiogenesis offers great potential, not only for the obvious conditions such as critical limb ischemia and angina, but also for other indications post-stroke recovery and liver failure.  Methods of stimulating angiogenesis range from administration of Inventors: Whitehouse; Martha Jo (San Francisco, CA)
Assignee: Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics, Inc. (Emeryville, CA)
Date of First Priority Issue: Tuesday October 13th, 1998

Stem cells and their use in transplantation

Patent Number: 7,537,756
The problem with islet transplantation is that one needs 2-3 pancreatic donors per recipient, and even this high number of islets still end up eventually being rejected/nonfunctional.  Additionally the recipient needs to be on immune suppression.  These drawbacks are not only because of allogeneic issues, but also due to poor vascularization once the islets are injected via the hepatic...
