    Thumbs up Biomed firm commercializes stem-cell sales great news!

    This is great news, lol

    These folks are heavy hitters, I'm sure this will help speed up the science...

    President Bush approved research funding for stem cell lines derived in conjunction with our laboratory.

    -We have produced neurons that will be used to discover new drugs for diseases like Spinal Muscular Atrophy, this disease strikes one in every 6,000 births.

    -We have a new company called Aruna BioMedical that will provide the most advanced neural cells to researchers around the world.

    -We are one of five NIH stem cell training centers and have trained scientist from Georgia to Bombay, India in new stem cell techniques.

    -New cloning procedures are being developed to improve the efficiencies and reduce the cost of cloning animals.

    -We have produced 50 cloned calves and nearly 100 clones pigs.

    -We were also the first to produce a viable cloned calf from an animal that had been dead for 48 hours. This opens new opportunities in agriculture and preserving endangered species.

    Athens, Georgia - - January 25, 2007 - - Aruna Biomedical, Inc., announced today that it has entered into a technology licensing agreement with the University of Georgia Research Foundation that will enable the company to commercialize human neural progenitor cell technology developed at the University.

    Under the terms of the agreement, Aruna has acquired an exclusive worldwide license to develop and commercialize neural cells derived from human embryonic stem cells. Aruna will offer the academic and industry research communities access to much sought after, but never before available human neural cells, derived from human embryonic stem cells, that relate to normal and diseased human conditions . The cells can be used in research ranging from Alzheimer’s, spinal cord injury and depression. Aruna anticipates launch of its first product, human neural progenitor (NP) cells, in early 2007 and add-on products will closely follow. The human NP cells will be sold and marketed through a third-party distribution partner and packaged as a kit with growth media and substrates.

    “The potential impact of this product on the neural research community could be astounding,” says Aruna co-founder and CEO Steven Stice. “We are offering a product that may accelerate the pace of neurological research for tens of thousands of scientists and thereby may provide patients with possible therapies and treatments for debilitating neurological diseases and spinal cord injuries much sooner than imagined.”

    "I am excited about the launch of the Neural Progenitor product,” says James Shepherd, Chairman of the Board for the Shepherd Center in Atlanta. “Getting the cells into the hands of more researchers broadens the number of [scientific] approaches being taken with them. All the stakeholders looking for results from cell therapies for their causes should be cheering Aruna's project."

    Emailed these guys yesterday. This is the reply:

    Hi Chris, We have not gone into animal models in any detail, we hope that the stem cells we provide will help people who want to do more with cell transplant studies. If we had the research funding we would like to do animal studies. Thanks for your interest and best of luck with your quest. Regards, Steve
