Anti-cancer compounds, immunogens against H1N1, cheap recombinant human insulin, stem cell research - the Indian biotech industry is in the thick of it all. Though bubbling with innovative ideas, a large number of small biotech companies and entrepreneurs have very little funds to bank on.

Serious questions have been raised about a stem cell doctor working in Western Sydney who charges $9,000 per procedure and uses methods that are untested by clinical trials. An investigation by the ABC's 7.30 program has revealed that Dr Ralph Bright bought his liposuction-based technology from an American company.

Rick Hansen welcomed The Countess of Wessex to the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre Sunday for a tour showcasing ground-breaking innovations in spinal cord injury care and research. Sir Elton, now 67, was in fine vocal form, belting out the words with a thunderous tone matching the way he hammered the keys on his Yamaha grand piano.

University of British Columbia, in collaboration with BetaLogics Venture, a division of Janssen Research & Development, LLC, has published a study highlighting a protocol to convert stem cells into insulin-producing cells. The new procedure could be an important step in the fight against Type 1 diabetes .
According to Global Stem Cells Group Founder , including patient recruiting through Regenestem, physician training and certification trough Stem Cell Training, and stem cell equipment and disposables sales through Adimarket. Regenestem, Stem Cell Training and Adimarket are all subsidiaries of the Global Stem Cells Group brand.
Before the trials can begin in Denmark, researchers must first experiment by inserting embryonic stem cells into the brains of sclerosis patients After decades of waiting, researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the city hospital Rigshospitalet look all set to carry out the first ever stem-cell tests on humans. The joint research group involves some of the world's leading stem cell researchers, including the internationally-renowned American brain and stem cell researcher professor Steve A Goldman, who will be leading the efforts, most probably experimenting on people suffering from sclerosis.
Unlike salamanders, mammals can't regenerate lost limbs, but they can repair large sections of their ribs - and now scientists have discovered what gives rib cells their healing power. A team directed by University of California, San Francisco Stem Cell researcher Francesca Mariani took a closer look at rib regeneration in both humans and mice.
Metastatic melanoma is a highly aggressive skin cancer whose incidence is on the rise at an alarming rate. Research has revealed that metastatic tumor cells share similar signaling pathways with embryonic stem cells to sustain plasticity and growth.
A study comparing how blood stem cells and leukemia cells consume nutrients found that cancer cells are far less tolerant to shifts in their energy supply than their normal counterparts. The results suggest that there could be ways to target leukemia metabolism so that cancer cells die but other cell types are undisturbed.
Such cells have to be taken from embryos or made by reverting adult cells to their embryonic state, called induced pluripotent stem cells, 'New Scientist' reported. Scientists have created a new type of human stem cell in the lab which they believe will be better at making replacement organs than existing stem cells.
September is National Senior Pet Wellness Month. The Belle Mead Animal Hospital launched a new regenerative medicine program earlier this year that can benefit senior dogs and cats in particular.
While certain things about the stem cell initiative remain controversial notably embryonic stem cells some interesting events have occurred recently. These events will, perhaps, encourage more companies to consider investing in stem cell research.
A breakthrough stem cell transplant has been carried out in Japan for a woman suffering from an incurable eye illness. Japanese doctors say it's the first-ever operation when adult cells were used to repair the damaged organ.
Embryonic stem cells , characterized by their ability to both self-renew and differentiate into multiple cell lineages, are a powerful model for biomedical research and developmental biology. Human and mouse ESCs share many features, yet have distinctive aspects, including fundamental differences in the signaling pathways and cell cycle controls that support self-renewal.
