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.

Study shows stem cell therapy using a patient's own bone marrow ...

TIME study mirrors Late TIME trial in confirming autologous stem cells obtained from bone marrow are safe but do not further improve the recovery of heart function following a heart attack MINNEAPOLIS, MN – November 6, 2012 – Administering autologous stem cells obtained from bone marrow either 3 or 7 days following a heart attack did not improve heart function six months later, reports a new clinical trial supported by the National Institutes of Health. The results of this trial, called TIME (Transplantation In Myocardial Infarction Evaluation), were presented by Jay Traverse, MD of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation Tuesday, Nov. 6, at the 2012 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association in Los Angeles. The results of this trial mirror a previous, related study (LateTIME) which found that autologous bone marrow stem cell therapy given 2-3 weeks after a heart attack did not improve cardiac recovery. Both TIME and LateTIME were carried out by the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN), sponsored by the NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. “The data presented by TIME do much to advance stem cell therapy research,” said Jay Traverse, MD of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation and Principal Investigator of this study. “While this study did not provide a demonstrated cardiac benefit after six months, we still learned a great deal. Together, TIME and Late TIME have shown that stem cell therapy is safe, and they have set a baseline in terms of quantity of stem cells, type of stem cells, and severity of heart attack.” TIME enrolled 120 volunteers (avg. age 57) between July 2008 and February 2011; the participants all had moderate to severe impairment in their left ventricle and had undergone coronary stent placement as treatment for the heart attack. The participants were randomly assigned to one of four groups: day 3 stem cell, day 3 placebo (inactive cells), day 7 stem cell, or day 7 placebo. The CCTRN researchers developed a method of processing and purifying the stem cells from the bone marrow of each volunteer to ensure everyone received a uniform dose (150 million stem cells)...

Metro North Regional Employment Board Strategic Plan FY 2013 ...

In the context of today’s changing fiscal landscape on both the state and federal level, the Metro North REB is entering a stage of development that is guided by new opportunities as well as challenges. As it moves forward, the REB must identify creative new approaches, consider diverse sources of funding, and streamline existing systems to optimize efficiency. In addition, undertaking a renewed philosophy of continuous improvement and innovation in program implementation will be crucial to adjusting approaches in workforce development to align with the ever-changing economy. Historically, the education and workforce development systems have been only sporadically, marginally, or indirectly connected to business needs. Although some components of the workforce development system (notably community-based training and employment programs), have a long history of aligning their training with strong employer partnerships, the K-12 and college education systems have been grounded in a philosophy of preparing people for life, by providing a broad, general education, and only targeting training to specific occupations later in the post-secondary experience. In addition, education and workforce development have struggled to keep up with changing technologies and trends in industry, often lacking critical information about where career opportunities exist and what skills and abilities are necessary to take advantage of those options. As a result, education and training are often disconnected from real-time employer needs, and as a result, unemployed youth and adults often lack the necessary skills to enter those jobs that do exist, creating a growing class of disconnected or never connected workers.
