Stem cell meeting focuses on business
Point Loma Stem cell science is at last moving into clinical trials. But delivering its results to patients will require huge investments by drug and biotech companies, and health insurers must decide on how to reimburse for such therapy.Just how that’s going to happen is part of the Stem Cell Meeting on the Mesa, which begins Monday and ends Wednesday. The annual conference, which began as a scientific symposium, has extended into business matters as research get closer to patient treatments.The meeting in La Jolla includes scientific updates on stem cell research and presentations from more than 50 companies and research institutes, seeking investment or offering their science skills.The business push into what’s called regenerative medicine takes place as the United States is adopting a new health care system. Biotech executives speaking at the conference said their job is to document the benefits in restoring patient health and replacing less effective and more costly alternatives.Regenerative medicine aims to do what until very recently has been impossible: regrow lost tissues or organs and reverse degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s. The need for such treatments is becoming greater as baby boomers reach retirement age, and thousands of young veterans struggle with disabling injuries.Perry Karsen, executive vice president of Celgene.

It’s very similar to what we saw with monoclonal antibodies 20 25 years ago," Karsen said.Monoclonal antibody drugs represent one of biotech’s biggest success stories. They include drugs such as Humira, for autoimmune diseases, which brought in $9.3 billion in 2012. But many early attempts to

Every workplace has one that creepy guy no one wants to be
Michael Kors handbags outlet around.

fake Michael Kors a patsy, and if you don’t know who the patsy is, it’s you. If you can’t figure out who the creepy guy is at work, you may have to consider taking a look in the mirror.Articles Connexes?
