    China is developing 'numerous' treatments for spinal injuries

    China is developing 'numerous' treatments for spinal injuries

    08 January 2010

    China is developing a number of new treatments for spinal injuries thanks to generous funding from its government, it has been suggested.

    A study by the Canadian-based McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health claims that China's government is funding various regenerative medicine (RM) research projects and is recruiting top scientists to conduct this research.

    The study, published today (January 8th) in the UK journal Regenerative Medicine, said that China made 1,116 contributions to scientific journals on RM topics in 2008.

    Researchers at the Stem Cell Center affiliated with Tiantan Puhua Neuroscience Hospital in Beijing, claim they have successfully activated and multiplied the body's own neural stem cells using oral and intravenous medications and rehabilitation.

    They have also been using brain injections of stem cell types including bone marrow stem cells and foetal neural stem cells to improve symptoms of spinal injury and neurological diseases.

    China a rising star in regenerative medicine despite world skepticism of stem cell therapies
    Enforcing new Chinese rules for clinics may impact lucrative stem cell therapy tourism but improve international credibility, confidence
    This release is available in Chinese.

    Chinese researchers have become the world's fifth most prolific contributors to peer-reviewed scientific literature on clock-reversing regenerative medicine even as a skeptical international research community condemns the practice of Chinese clinics administering unproven stem cell therapies to domestic and foreign patients.

    According to a study by the Canadian-based McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health (MRC), published today by the UK journal Regenerative Medicine, China's government is pouring dollars generously into regenerative medicine (RM) research and aggressively recruiting high-calibre scientists trained abroad in pursuit of its ambition to become a world leader in the field.

    And its strategy is working: Chinese contributions to scientific journals on RM topics leapt from 37 in year 2000 to 1,116 in 2008, exceeded only by the contributions of experts in the USA, Germany, Japan and the UK.

    The accomplishment is all the more astonishing given that China's international credibility has been and still is severely hindered by global concerns surrounding Chinese clinics, where unproven therapies continue to be administered to thousands of patients.

    New rules to govern such treatments were recently instituted but need to be strictly enforced in order to repair China's global reputation, according to MRC authors Dominique S. McMahon, Halla Thorsteinsdóttir, Peter A. Singer and Abdallah S. Daar.

    Thumbs up China's rize to the top of scientific research

    The Chinese have abundant US trained scientists and physicians, hold trillions of dollars in US bonds, a stock market up 60% in 09, and no government, religious, or litigious interventions, and millions of paralyzed people, which will act as guines pigs for their research. Rats need not apply.


    Cheers;
