Patient Advisory for Stem Cell Therapy and Medical Tourism

August 2013 Patient Advisory for Stem Cell Therapy and Medical Tourism As stakeholders in cellular therapy, the undersigned professional organizations believe it is necessary to share the following important message with patients and families contemplating cell therapy or experimental stem cell procedures. In this document, best practices are outlined to assist patients and family members in their healthcare decisions. Controlled innovation in the context of patient safety is paramount as potential therapeutic products or procedures are researched, tested, advanced and proven. Our organizations have received questions and concerns from patients and this document presents an opportunity to address them. Introduction Advancement of clinical therapies is best done in the setting of rigorous and formal clinical trials and in a structured regulatory framework. This helps assure that safety considerations, professional peer review, and the management of patient rights and obligations are considered and addressed. Some procedures would be considered standard of care, because scientific studies have shown that they are safe and effective. Not all procedures offered to patients in all regions of the world are tested in this manner and not all geographical regions have regulations for cellular therapies or patient protection. Additionally, it is possible that some practitioners may offer stem cell procedures without following the existing regulations. Patients may be seeking treatment for incurable, potentially untreatable diseases and may be susceptible to false promises or may not have access to all of the information needed to make this important decision. As patients and families contemplate voluntarily ...

Stem Cell Treatments For Cerebral Palsy Factsheet For - UCLA ...

STEM CELLS AND CEREBRAL PALSY Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term which includes several forms and levels of nonprogressive brain-related injury, which cause limitations in muscle control, movement and mobility (known as neuromotor impairment) and other symptoms that lead to physical disability. CP is caused by many factors, and can include infection before birth, premature birth and lack of oxygen around the time of birth. It is thought that the major common feature in CP is a lack of blood and oxygen to the brain during fetal development and/or delivery, known as a hypoxic-ischemic insult. The cells most vulnerable to this hypoxic-ischemic insult are oligodendrocytes, the support cells that wrap nerve cells (or neurons) with a protective white fat called myelin, hence the term white matter of the brain. Because of this myelin, neurons can send electrical signals efficiently throughout the body. Once oligodendrocytes die, the neurons are no longer protected and they eventually die. If myelin could be replaced before neurons die, neurons could be spared and motor impairments could be lessened. For this reason, scientists are investigating whether lost oligodendrocytes can be replaced with stem cells. Stem cells are unspecialized cells which can become specialized cells such as brain cells, heart cells or muscle cells. The process of developing into a specialized cell is known as differentiation. Stem cells can also multiply over and over again, a process known as proliferation. During the process of proliferation the stem cell either remains unspecialized or, under the right condition, can become a specialized cell such as a brain cell. Replacing neurons themselves would be like trying to rewire a giant switchboard with tens of thousands of ports but no labels, where improper connections could lead to pain. It is for this reason that the aim of many cell transplantation strategies now being tested is to replace lost oligodendrocytes rather than to make and successfully connect new neurons. Recent decades have seen advances in our knowledge of how to study and use stem cells. It is expected we will develop ways to transplant stem cells into damaged tissues to treat and cure injury and diseases like CP. From Mice to Humans...

Patient Handbook on Stem Cell Therapies - A Closer Look at Stem ...

W e have all heard about the extraordinary promise that stem cell research holds for the treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions. However, there is a lot of work still needed to take this research and turn it into safe and effective treatments. The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is very concerned that stem cell therapies are being sold around the world before they have been proven safe and effective. Stem cell therapies are nearly all new and experimental. In these early stages, they may not work, and there may be downsides. Make sure you understand what to look out for before considering a stem cell therapy. Remember, most medical discoveries are based on years of research performed at universities and companies. There is a long process that shows first in laboratory studies and then in clinical research that something is safe and will work. Like a new drug, stem cell therapies must be assessed and meet certain standards before receiving approval from national regulatory bodies to be used to treat people. What does this really mean for you as a patient, doctor, friend or family member? Below we hope to answer some of your questions on stem cells and stem cell therapies and give you the resources you and your doctor need to make the best decisions possible for treatment. The ISSCR is a non-profit professional stem cell research organization with a commitment to ensure the promise of stem cell research is delivered to patients in a safe, effective and fair manner.

HIGH-END NOTEBOOK PERFORMANCE COMPARISON: DELL PRECISION M3800 VS. 2012 AND 2013 APPLE MACBOOK PRO WITH RETINA DISPLAY

When selecting a high-end portable workstation for multimedia creation and viewing, performance counts. Large files and complex applications can slow systems with limited amounts of RAM or basic graphic cards. Those who invest in a system with a powerful 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and two heavy-duty graphics cards do so because their compute-intensive workloads require such hardware. In our labs, we tested three current high-end portable systems, a 4th generation Intel Core processor-based Dell Precision M3800 with QHD+ touchscreen display, a similarly configured 2013 Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display, and a 2012 Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display, to see how well they performed. While the systems were comparably configured, the Dell Precision M3800 has a touch screen and runs Windows 8.1, allowing users to select, zoom, and edit their work right on the screen. It also has three times the storage capacity of the 2012 MacBook Pro and 33 percent more than the 2013 MacBook Pro, which is very useful for storing large multimedia files. The Dell Precision M3800 outperformed both MacBook Pro systems on several tests. Along with its $2,249 purchase price, which is 13.5 percent lower than that of the 2013 MacBook Pro, these advantages make the Dell Precision M3800 an excellent choice for those who work with multimedia content and need an extremely powerful system they can use at the office and on the go.

European and Global Climate Change Projections - ClimateCost

2.4°C to 3.4°C rise in global temperature by the period 2071-2100 (A1B)1 • nalysis of the future impacts and economic costs of climate change A requires climate models. These models require inputs of future greenhouse gas emissions, based on modelled global socio-economic scenarios, to make projections of future changes in temperature, precipitation and other meteorological variables. • he ClimateCost project has considered three emissions scenarios: T a medium-high non-mitigation baseline scenario (A1B); a mitigation scenario (E1), which stabilises global temperature change at about 2°C above pre-industrial levels; and a high-emission scenario (RCP8.5). • Under a medium-high emission baseline (A1B), with no mitigation, the climate models considered in ClimateCost show that global average temperatures could rise by between 1.6°C and 2.3°C by 2041-2070, and 2.4°C and 3.4°C by 2071-2100, relative to the modelled baseline period used in the project of 1961-1990. However, the models project much larger temperature increases for Europe in summer, and strong regional differences across countries, for example, the Iberian Peninsula has a mean projected increase of up to 5°C by 2071-2100. 1.5°C rise in global temperature with mitigation (E1)1 Uncertainty in the climate projections between emissions scenarios and climate models for Europe is considerable These values are reported for a future average time period over 30 years, relative to a 1961-1990 baseline. They report the Ensembles Project results used in the ClimateCost project, not the full IPCC AR4 range. 1 02/03 2/2 European and Global Climate Change Projections • The differences in the precipitation projections between the models are much greater and the distributional patterns across Europe are more pronounced than for temperature. Nonetheless, there are some robust patterns of change. There are wetter winters projected for Western and Northern Europe. By contrast, there are drier conditions projected all year for Southern Europe, where summer precipitation could be reduced by 50% by the end of the century. In other parts of Europe, the changes are more uncertain, and the models even project differences in the direction of change (i.e. whether increases or decreases will occur).
