Recently, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America released a report “Medicines in Development – Biologics, 2013 Report.” The report lists 907 biologics currently in development by “America’s biopharmaceutical research companies.” The list includes biologics targeting more than 100 diseases that are currently in human clinical trials or are under review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In the report, 69 cell therapies were identified as having clinical trials under review with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including 15 in Phase III clinical trials. Of the therapies listed, nine therapeutic categories were represented and include: cardiovascular disease, skin diseases, cancer and related conditions, digestive disorders, transplantation, genetic disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, eye conditions, and other.

At the 1924 Congress, FIFA agreed to assume responsibility for the organisation of the Olympic Football Tournament by ratifying the proposal that “on condition that the Olympic Football Tournament takes place in accordance with the Regulations of FIFA, the latter shall recognise this as a world football championship”. The 1924 tournament was a great success with 60,000 spectators following the final between Uruguay and Switzerland. The South Americans won 3-0 and were celebrated as World Champions in Montevideo. South America’s predominance was even more impressive at the Olympic Football Tournament in Amsterdam in 1928. Against next-door neighbour Argentina, Uruguay did not want to relinquish their victory on that occasion. This resonance at the Olympic Games intensified FIFA’s wish for its own World Championship. FIFA President Jules Rimet was the driving force in the search for the means to materialise this dream. Following a proposal of the Executive Committee, the FIFA Congress in Amsterdam on 26 May 1928 decided to stage an official FIFA World Championship: the World Cup was born! One year later Uruguay, twice Olympic Champions, planning the celebration of its 100th anniversary of independence in 1930, were assigned the organisation of the first FIFA World Cup™. The first FIFA World Cup™ FIFA’s decision to hold the first World Cup in Uruguay did not only meet acclaim, as Europe was plunged in the midst of an economic crisis. Participation in a World Cup taking place overseas, involved a long sea journey. Moreover, for the clubs it meant they had to renounce their best players for two months. Thus, more and more European associations broke their promise to participate. Thanks to Rimet’s personal efforts, at least four Belgium, France, Yugoslavia and Romania - set off on the long journey. The World Cup, opened at the Estadio Centenario on 18 July 1930, became a remarkable success, both in a sporting and financial sense. On 30th July, the first World Cup final saw the same fixture as two years before at the Olympic Football Tournament. Being 2-1 down at half-time, Uruguay raised the rhythm of their play, regained the lead and - cheered on by the majority of the 93,000 crowd - finally won 4-2. The organisers on the other hand were disappointed at the fact that only four European teams participated. The anger in Montevideo was so intense that four years later, the World Champions - for the first and only time - renounced defending their title
