NYSCF and NIH create cell models of rare and undiagnosed diseases
Date:11/21/2013

induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines by reprogramming UDP patient skin cells into an embryonic-like state. These iPS cells carry the same genetic information as the patient and can become any of the body's cell types. Scientists at NYSCF and the NIH will use these stem cells to model diseases in the petri dish and enable more comprehensive analyses of their underlying causes. Critical to research investigations, the iPS cells produced by the Array are completely standardized, enabling scientists to compare these cells to a patient's adult cells and relevant medical data using a platform that is reproducible and scalable.

Disease modeling, a novel application of stem cell technology, enables researchers to examine the molecular-level features of diseases in vitro, or in the petri dish. Many cell types are not readily accessible from patients and post-mortem examination inherently fails to show active disease processes necessary to better understand the ailment. IPS cells, when turned into adult cell types, play out the disease in a manner similar to that of cells in the patient. Unlike engineered animal models or cultured adult cells, iPS cells are patient-specific, readily comparable to the medical data of diseased patients from which they are derived.

NYSCF is using the Array technology to develop a collection of diverse stem cell lines that will be replicable and available to the scientific community for research use. This technology is particularly important for rare diseases, enabling the creation of a pool of stem cells to recreate the human disease model and conduct specified investigation into unknown or little-studied ailments.

Consistent with the aims of the UDP, NYSCF and NIH scientists will collaborate on studies with these quality-controlled, standardized stem cells in a joint effort to advance medical knowledge about both common and rare diseases with the goal of providing answers to mysterious medical conditions and,
