The Government of Canada recently announced the launch of the project on creation of an automated plant for the production of stem cells. The stem cells can solve a lot of problems in the field of medicine and save many lives. As reported by Bloomberg, for the implementation of such an ambitious project will meet General Electric and the Centre for commercialization of regenerative medicine in Toronto.
In Addition to the cell manufacturing, centre in Toronto to develop their new types, are needed to combat various diseases. Now there is the possibility of growing stem cells, but the process is long enough. In order to grow a few tens of cells for a specific patient, will take several weeks. And at many stages the necessary control on the part of man, so plant in Toronto should be as automated as possible, because the number of "manufactured" cells should be at least several thousand. Moreover, the production will be monitored by artificial intelligence. Over time, he will be able to study and to propose various options for optimizing production.
Stem cell Therapy in combination with genome editing has already proven its effectiveness in the treatment of several diseases. Among them, some inherited diseases and diseases of the brain, so the creation of such proceedings can have a very positive value. It is worth noting that at the moment stem cells are also used not only in medicine but also in various clinical trials, so new production interested and large companies. For example, the pharmaceutical company Bayer and some of the giants of silicon valley supported the project, investing in a few hundred million dollars.
currently, the only salvation for patients with diabetes is regular insulin injections.
At the beginning of this month, at the annual conference of the neurobiological society, two groups of scientists have demonstrated a new technology that could give us eternal bliss.
