    First Korean Stem Cell-Based “Dream Drug� Enters Commercial Testing

    MARCH 13, 2005 22:50
    by Sang-Hoon Kim TK Sohn (corekim@donga.com sohn@donga.com)


    Korea's first clinical demonstration will be carried out to commercialize a stem-cell remedy, which is considered a "hope" for curing various incurable diseases and cancers.

    On March 13, the Korea Food & Drug Administration (KFDA) revealed its plan, saying, "Recently, the Ajou University Hospital and FCD-Pharmacell, a bioventure company, handed in a report on its 'Project to Conduct Clinical Demonstrations to Commercialize A Stem-cell Remedy for Cerebral Infarction,' and we will authorize the project without delay."

    A similar report

    Incredible. I would have never believed stem cell "commercialization" would have been on the horizon so soon.

    Talk about an economic boon for Korea. . . .

    Where's the SCI stuff?

                      First, 10cc of the patient's marrow has to be extracted from the pelvis. In the extracted marrow, there are two to three stem cells on average. Then those cells are cultured for three to four weeks to obtain as many as one trillion stem cells.

                      From what i've been told this many multipulecations is far from good.

                          Thanks Kim.

                          I don't think tumors are a risk with adult autologous cells.

                          Also, I wouldn't call this a drug treatment, it's a cell transplant.
