Un estudio de ingeniería de tejido óseo llevado a cabo por la Universidad de Gante mejora el tratamiento de déficit óseo utilizando células madre conservadas por Cryo-Save

ZUTPHEN, Países Bajos, November 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

La colaboración de Cryo-Save con la Universidad de Gante ha conseguido superar las restricciones que hasta ahora había encontrado la ingeniería de tejido óseo en lo relacionado con injertos óseos de gran tamaño. La ingeniería tradicional de tejidos (IT) se limita con frecuencia a la región externa, dando lugar a una formación de tejidos localizada y no uniforme. Para el presente estudio, Cryo-Save proporcionó células madre criopreservadas, que han mostrado unos resultados prometedores a la hora de obtener una distribución de células uniforme y una alta densidad celular en el centro de los injertos óseos. Esto mejorara los tratamientos de déficit óseo para injertos óseos de gran tamaño.

El Grupo Cryo-Save, el mayor Banco Familiar de Células Madre europeo, ha formado parte de un estudio de ingeniería de tejidos del más alto nivel, conducido por la Dra. Heidi A. Declercq y su equipo de la Universidad de Gante de Bélgica (el jefe del equipo es el Prof. Dr. M. Cornelissen), dirigido a desarrollar nuevos métodos para construir tejido óseo artificial a partir de células madre. Una estrecha colaboración entre Cryo-Save y la Universidad de Gante llevó a la compañía a fabricar y suministrar células madre criopreservadas derivadas de tejido adiposo (ADSC) para este estudio. El artículo "Injertos óseos diseñados a partir de células madre humanas derivadas del tejido adiposo en entornos tridimensionales dinámicos" se publicó recientemente en Biomaterials, una de las publicaciones científicas más influyentes y leídas en el campo de la Ingeniería de Tejidos y los Biomateriales.

Gracias al trabajo de la Dra. Declercq, la ingeniería modular de tejidos ofrece una forma innovadora de crear injertos óseos grandes obtenidos a partir de ADSC implantadas en microportadores, en un enfoque de abajo hacia arriba. La estrategia apunta a diseñar microtejidos de pequeño volumen y alta calidad y el subsiguiente ensamblaje in-vitro o in-vivo para dar construcciones mayores de tejidos tras el implante. En este estudio, los microportadores con implantes de ADSC se usaron para preparar tejidos modulares (microtejidos) como si fueran ladrillos, tras lo cual se produjo un autoensamblaje in-vitro en macrotejidos. Como resultado, la Dra. Declercq demostró que las ADSC son tan buenas como la médula ósea para aplicaciones de ingeniería de tejidos óseos, revelando una morfología, un nivel de calcificación y una expresión de genes de osteogénesis similares, con la ventaja de que el uso de ADSC puede sustituir la dolorosa recogida de células madre procedentes de la médula ósea.

Los resultados del estudio son muy prometedores para el tratamiento de los déficits óseos. La Dra. Declercq tiene grandes esperanzas puestas en la ingeniería de tejidos óseos y manifestó: "El diseño modular de tejidos es un enfoque prometedor para crear grandes injertos óseos ya que supera muchos de los límites del diseño tradicional de tejidos. Además, la combinación de células madre derivadas de tejido adiposo en este enfoque de abajo hacia arriba es magnífico, puesto que las células madre derivadas de tejido adiposo constituyen un excelente punto de partida a efectos de diseño de tejidos. Hay abundantes fuentes de tejido adiposo de donde se puede obtener un alto número de células con alta proliferación y capacidad de diferenciación."

Cryo-Save se enorgullece haber desempeñado un papel principal como proveedor de las ADSC criopreservadas para su uso en este estudio. Parte integral de las actividades de Cryo-Save es el apoyo a la investigación y la colaboración con universidades, médicos y científicos líderes en el terreno de las células madre, con el fin de mejorar sus aplicaciones clínicas.

Cryo-Save, Banco Familiar de Células Madre líder, conserva más de 225.000 muestras de sangre de cordón umbilical, tejido del cordón y tejido adiposo. Ya hay muchas enfermedades que se pueden tratar usando células madre y el número de tratamientos seguirá creciendo. Con su estrategia comercial internacional, Cryo-Save está presente actualmente en más de 40 países de tres continentes, con instalaciones ultramodernas de procesamiento y almacenaje en Bélgica, Alemania, Dubái, la India y Sudáfrica.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT.
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
