Thread: Asterias / cohort two

  1. #21
    I thought Invivo was ahead of everybody but Asteria is doing great. And like Grammy said they are doing cervical and actually nobody really does cervical as everybody's plans for usually cervical later after we try the other ones.

    Lynnifer yesterday put a great link also in another thread with Asterias patient.

    One things bothers me... How much is by volume 10 mIllions cells?
    Also, for us that not following carefully or got no time to watch many videos
    can someone summarize & simplify - Why are Asteria cells are so special?

    2x106 AST-OPC1 • 50 uL Injection

    Three identified functions – Produces neurotrophic factors – Induces remyelination – Induces vascularization

    “Off the shelf” administration and reduces cavitation of the lesion site.

    Here's a nice quick summary:

    Hi,
    It's amazing how small is a cell... 10 millions cells fits into 50 microliters - as far as I know 1 rain drop is
    1 milliliter (1000th part of 1 Liter) and you need 20 x 50 microliters to make one rain drop.

    Regarding type of stem cells used (oligodendrocyte progenitor cells) -
    I am pretty sure some other stem cell companies are also using them.
    However, something must be different with a Asterias cells or with their implementation, I think??
    Anything we don't know and that can not be googled?

    The first of it's kind to test OPC was the Geron company which was bought out by Asterias and currently testing them in SCI. I'm not aware of any other company using oligodendrocyte progenitor cells yet and don't see anything at clinicaltrials.gov for other indications.

    With the unique properties of OPC, they could potentially be used in MS, Stroke and other Neurodegenerative Diseases.
