Navigating the IP Minefield of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Development
Date:5/8/2012

FARMINGTON, Conn., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Global Information Inc. is pleased to announce two significant new reports

Opportunities in Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Products
Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst, the stage reached 4 to 5 days after fertilization. They are the most pluripotent of all stem cell types, able to develop into any of over 200 different cell types in the human body, rending them tremendously useful for their therapeutic potential. However, human embryonic stem cell research is heavily encumbered by patents held by the University of Wisconsin's Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), which creates significant challenges for guidance for companies seeking to develop new products.

BioInformant's new Opportunities in Human Embryonic Stem Cell (hESC) Products market research report explores the complex IP landscape affecting development of human embryonic stem cell products, providing clear guidance for companies entering or already within the market. Over the past 15 years, WARF has been the major "gatekeeper" in determining which research product companies are able to conduct research, create commercial products, and develop novel therapies using hESCs. To date, WARF has entered into licensing agreements with only 27 commercial partners for its intellectual portfolio related to isolating and differentiating hESCs.

While Invitrogen, Becton Dickinson and Chemicon have disclosed licensing agreements with WARF, many research products companies have be forced to explore less costly alternatives - such as circumventing the claims, conducting research off-shore, and developing embryonic stem cell products for other species.
