LA Times on CIRM Plans to Remain ‘Relevant’

The changing focus of the California stem cell agency – with its aggressive push towards fast, tangible and marketable results and presumably away from its original emphasis on human embryonic stem cell research – was the focus of a Los Angeles Times article early last month.

The Jan. 10, 2010, piece by Karen Kaplan said,

“Now the institute has a more immediate goal: boosting therapies that are much further along in development and more often rely on less glamorous adult stem cells. It is concentrating its vast financial resources on projects that could cure conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, AIDS, sickle cell disease and various types of cancer.

babyBaby to cure thalassaemic mom?

19 Feb 2009, 0609 hrs IST, Pinaki Das, TNN

HOWRAH: When 24-year-old thalassaemia patient Pinky Barman sought to get pregnant last year, her parents squirmed. Her doctor wasn’t sure if she could carry it through and husband Abinash, a non-thalassaemic, thought she was being too ambitious. On Wednesday morning, she gave birth to a boy after months of treatment and medical supervision during which she received at least 15 transfusions.

The newborn has not only brought smiles back to the Barman household but could also cure his mother of the potentially life-threatening ailment. Stem cells taken from cord blood are being used to treat Pinky’s thalassaemia, which, doctors said, has never happened anywhere in the world.
