Methods of recruiting fibroblasts by administering G-CSF

Patent Number: 7,531,510
Recruitment of various progenitor cells into injured tissue is a well known phenomena.  For example, after infarct, mobilization of bone marrow stem cells into the injured myocardium has been reported.  The current patent uses G-CSF, a cytokine that stimulates hematopoiesis and causes mobilizationInventors: Fukuda; Keiichi (Shinjuk-ku, JP), Fujita; Jun (Shinjuku-ku, JP)

Clusterin-mediated inhibition of apoptosis via stromal bone marrow cell delivery to a cardiac site

Patent Number: 7,524,490
 Many diseases are associated with either too much apoptosis (eg ALS, Parkinson's, Liver failure, etc) or too little apoptosis (cancer).  The current patent covers a method to suppress apoptosis in mammalian cells.The method consists of transfecting an isolated population bone marrow derived stromal cells (either autologous or allogeneic) with a nucleic acid encoding the clusterin...

Blood and cell analysis using an imaging flow cytometer

Patent Number: 7,522,758
This patent covers methods of diagnosing diseases based on flow cytometric profile.  Although the majority of the invention is directed towards chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the first claim is rather broad:"A method for detecting a disease condition from images collected from a population of cells, comprising the steps of: (a) spectrally dispersing light from the population of...
