UCLA: Utilizing Patient's Own Cells for Individualized Stem Cell Therapies

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Feb 08, 2017

Researchers at UCLA believe using the patient’s own cells to create stem cells for therapeutic purposes is the future of medicine. A recently published study by scientists at UCLA demonstrates how specialized proteins change the cellular characteristics of skin cells to create induced pluripotent stem cells. These stem cells have the ability to turn into any cell type within the body. Also at UCLA, a clinical trial which uses the baby’s own blood-forming stem cells to treat the immune deficiency condition ADA-SCID, better known as “bubble baby disease,” was recently awarded a $20M grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
