Cell Therapy Product Manufacturing in a Hospital Setting
Poster Oct 27, 2009
This presentation describes in detail the development and establishment of a current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) facility for the purpose of manufacturing cell and tissue products intended for human use in a hospital setting.
We found a distinct subpopulation of Tregs within BMSCs. Tregs and BMSCs in co-culture conferred neuroprotection that varied in a dose-dependent manner. Tregs minimized stem cell production of IL-6, a pro-inflammatory cytokine, and inhibited BMSC secretion of FGF-beta, a cytokine related to BMSC proliferation and differentiation. The ratio of Tregs found natively in BMSCs is optimally adapted to provide the maximum neuroprotective benefit of stem cell treatment after ischemic stroke.READ MORE
