Stem cell research is not yet generally underway, and even where it is being carried out it is impossible to establish somatic stem cell
therapeutic concepts or to obtain patents without world-class researchers and facilities.
Peter Wernet, the President of NETCORD, commented, "To our knowledge, we are the first group to demonstrate that neonatal somatic stem cells
can be robustly expanded in vitro under pharmaceutical conditions to very large numbers and can differentiate, in vivo, into a number of tissue types and take on the properties and specific functions of the cells in those tissues.
com) is a pre-clinical stage biotechnology company with research and development stage programs using its proprietary Unrestricted Somatic Stem Cell
(USSC) for cardiac, bone and cartilage repair as well as neuronal regeneration.
The first project is focused on the development of sterile disposable processing sets and cryopreservation protocols to provide cryopreserved therapeutic doses of cell populations, which will be derived from Kourion's proprietary unrestricted somatic stem cells
("USSC") that are isolated from placental/ umbilical cord blood ("PCB").
This was a surprise, Matunis says, and left a puzzle: Where were the new somatic stem cells
22) about attempts to generate new cartilage from somatic stem cells
Offerings include embryonic stem cells and somatic stem cells

of Science and Culture, Iran), describe recent advances, perspectives, and applications in different fields of stem cell research, including embryonic stem cells, somatic stem cells
, and stem cell therapy.
Studies which link fetal exposure to toxicants or other substances affecting somatic stem cells
that later populate organs such as the mammary gland, the prostate gland and the lung, and that have cancer as the endpoint, are sought by the NCI.
