Mesenchymal precursor cell

Patent Number: 7,399,632

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy is rapidly becoming a clinical reality.  The beauty of this cell population is that it can be used in an "off the shelf" manner and does not appear to have many safety issues.  Mesenchymal stem cells from the bone marrow have been patented by Osiris, whereas cells similar to mesenchymal stem cells have been...

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...

Definitive endoderm

Patent Number: 7,510,876

Continuing Novocell's domination of IP in the area of developing commercial ES-derived products, this recent patent covers composition of matter on in vitro endoderm (eg progenitor cell of the liver, pancreas, digestive tube)  derived from "multipotent" cells. 

The broadest claim, "An in vitro cell culture comprising human cells wherein at least 15% of said...

Hematopoietic stem cell identification and isolation

Patent Number: 7,510,877

The hematopoietic stem cell is the most well studied stem cell, being responsible for saving hundreds of thousands of lives through allowing the procedure of bone marrow transplant to become a reality.  As far back as 1984, filings on hematopoietic stem cells can be found (#4,714,680).

The current patent has a new way of purifying hematopoietic stem...

Primitive and proximal hepatic stem cells

Patent Number: 7,413,897

The liver is one of the organs that has been demonstrated to respond to stem cell therapy both in animal models and in clinical trials.  It is known that the liver has endogenous stem cells, but also that bone marrow stem cells can differentiate into liver cells.  In fact, it is published that...

Insulin-secreting immortalized liver cell line modified by glucose sensitivity

Patent Number: 7,312,077

It has previously been demonstrated that rat hepatic cells can be coaxed into producing insulin by isolating the hepatic cells from an animal that was first primed with a hepatoxin, and subsequently exposing the isolated hepatic cells to high glucose concentrations. In the current patent a hepatic cell line that has been...

Efficient nuclear transfer with primordial gametes

Patent Number: 7,351,876

This patent covers a new method of cloning cows.  Specifically, the patent teaches a method of making a cow blastocyst by

- extracting a primordial gamete cell population from the cow fetus
- using the nucleus of the primordial gamete cell as a nuclear donor for an enucleated oocyte
- and activating the combination of the primordial gamete nucleus with the recipient...

Enriched central nervous system stem cell and progenitor cell populations, and methods for identifying, isolating and enriching for such populations

Patent Number: 7,381,561

This patent covers methods of isolating neural stem cells using antibodies that bind CD49f. The first independent claim is very broad in that it is not restricted to originating material of adult or embryonic origin but simply covers a method of purifying a population by selecting for cells that initiate neurospheres in culture and express CD49f. CD49f is found on other types of stem cells as...
