Cellular Dynamics International Scientists Report on Efficient Method to Produce Footprint-Free Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs) Under Feeder-Free Conditions

ublication.  Her work brings us one step closer to the use of iPSC technology in medical treatment," said Robert Palay, CEO and chairman of CDI.  

Chris Parker, Chief Commercial Officer of CDI, added, "Cellular Dynamics is focused on optimizing processes for manufacturing human iPSCs and human differentiated cells for use by the biomedical community.  We have demonstrated that we can manufacture human iPSCs and our human iCell® Cardiomyocytes in the quantity, quality and purity required by our pharmaceutical customers for their drug discovery and toxicity testing programs.  We have other cell types, such as hepatocytes, neurons and blood vessel cells in development for these uses as well.  iPSCs and the human cells derived from them have potential applicability as therapeutics.  However, concerns about exogenous DNA permanently incorporated into the cells have limited development in this area.  More recently, several laboratories including our own have developed methods that result in iPSCs that are free of exogenous DNA.  Although important advances on the path to iPSC-based therapeutics have occurred, none of the methods developed to date enable efficient production of human cells so that they could be used as safe, efficacious and cost-effective therapeutics.  Work done in our laboratory and published in this article demonstrates such a process."
