Clonal USSC - DLK1-positive Human Cord Blood Derived Unrestricted Somatic Stem Cells

Over the last years, there was a tremendous increase in the clinical use of allogenic cord blood (CB) for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Amongst others CB consists of hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic stem cells like mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and unrestricted somatic stem cells (USSC).

Even though the adherent USSC described in the invention share many overlapping features with MSC from fetal tissue and bone marrow such as the immunophenotype, osteogenic and chondrogenic differentiation potential, these USSC are a more immature precursor cell population. Not being so far committed and specialized, they represent a promising source for regenerative medicine.

The invention discloses a multipotent, stable cell line that could be isolated from cord blood. The somatic stem cells are CD34-, Oct4-, Nanog-, Sox2- and telomerase negative and neither differentiate into hematopoietic lineage cells and endothelial stem or progenitor cells nor into adipocytes. They are distinct from but capable to differentiate into mesenchymal cells (bone cells or chondrocytes), neural cells and endoderm cells.

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
