Sessions & Tracks

Cell Therapy

Cell Therapy or Cytotherapy is the transfer of cells into a patient with a goal of improving the disease.  From beginning blood transfusions were considered to be the first type of cell therapy to be practiced as routine. Later, Bone marrow transplantation has also become a well-established concept which involves treatment of much kind of blood disorders including anemia, leukemia, lymphoma and rare immunodeficiency diseases.  Alternative medical practitioners perform cell therapy in the form of several different names including xeno-transplant therapy, glandular therapy, and fresh cell therapy. It has been claimed by the proponents of cell therapy that it has been used successfully to repair spinal cord injuries, strengthen weaken immune system, treats autoimmune diseases like AIDS, help patients with neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.

Gene Therapy

Gene Therapy basically involves the introduction or alteration of genetic material within a cell or organism with an intention of curing the disease. Both cell therapy and gene therapy are overlapping fields of biomedical research with the goals of repairing the direct cause of Genetic diseases in DNA or cellular population respectively, the discovery of recombinant DNA technology in the 1970s provided tools to efficiently develop gene therapy. Scientists use these techniques to readily manipulate viral genomes, isolate genes and identify mutations involved in human disease, characterize and regulate gene expressions, and engineer various viral and non-viral vectors. Various long-term treatments for anemia, hemophilia, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, Gauscher’s disease, lysosomal storage diseases, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and diseases of bones and joints are resolved through successful gene therapy and are elusive today.

Stem Cell Therapies

Cell Therapy is defined as the therapy in which cellular material is injected into a patient in order to recover the healthy tissue. Cell therapy is targeted at many clinical indications in multiple organs by means of several modes of cell delivery. Stem-Cell Therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Stem cells are a class of undifferentiated cells which are able to differentiate into required or specialized cell types. Adult or somatic stem cells exist throughout the body after embryonic development and are found available inside the different types of tissue. The stem cell methodology includes the phases of Stem cell or progenitor cell engraftment, differentiation followed by long term replacement of damaged tissue.

Cell Culture and Bioprocessing

A Stem-Cell line is a group of undifferentiated stem cells which is cultured invitro and can be propagated indefinitely. While stem cells can propagate indefinitely in culture due to their inherent cellular properties, immortalized cells would not normally divide indefinitely but have gained this ability to sustain due to mutation. The Immortalized cell lines can be generated from cells by means of isolating cells from tumors or induce mutations to make the cells immortal. An immortalized cell line is a population of multicellular organism cells which has not proliferates indefinitely. Due to mutation, the cells evaded normal cellular senescence and instead undergoing continuous cell division. A key factor in reducing the production costs of biopharmaceuticals is the development of cell lines which in turn produce a high yield of product.

Clinical Trials on Cell & Gene Therapy

Clinical Trials of Cell and Gene Therapy products often varying from the clinical trials design for other types of pharmaceutical products. These differences in trial design are necessitated by the distinctive features of these products. The clinical trials also reflect previous clinical experience and evidence of medicine. Early experiences with Cell and Gene Therapy products indicate that some CGT products may pose substantial risks to subjects due to effect at cellular and genetic level. The design of early-phase clinical trials of Cell and Gene Therapy products often involves the following consideration of clinical safety issues, preclinical issues and chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) issues that are encountered.

Nano Therapy

Diseases can be treated using viruses as vector to deliver genes in Gene Therapy. Viruses as gene vector however, can themselves cause problems in that they may initiate inflammation and the genes may be expressed at too high a level or for too long period of exposure. The goal of Nano Technology in gene therapy is delivery of therapeutic genes without a virus, using nanoparticles as non-viral vector to deliver the genes.  The particles can be made with multiple layers so the outer layer with covering of peptide that can target the particles to cells of interest at specific site. The emergent Nanotechnology in gene therapy is used to develop unique approaches in treating the retinopathies and the development of micro and Nano dimensional artificial antigen presenting cells for cancer immunotherapy. These antigen presenting cells mimic the natural signals in immunity that killer T-cells receive when there is an invader (bacteria, virus, cancer cell, etc.) in the body.

Advanced Gene Therapeutics

Functionality of biomaterials for these forms is depends upon the chemical reaction such as localized or systemic response at the surface tethered moieties or encapsulated therapeutic factors such as drugs, genes, cells, growth factors, hormones and other active agents to specific target sites. The application of functional biomaterials is rehabilitation, reconstruction, regeneration, repair, ophthalmic applications and act as therapeutic solutions. It has the property of biocompatibility and produce inertness response to the tissue.  The biomaterial-mediated gene therapy aim to use polymeric gene therapy systems to halt the progression of neuron loss through neuroprotective routes and it combine stem cell therapy and biomaterial delivery system in order to enhance regeneration or repair after ischemic injury.

Gene and Cell Therapy for Rare & Common Diseases

Gene therapy is a superior method to treat uncommon hereditary maladies; fix a solitary quality deformity by presenting a 'right' quality. The main quality treatment preliminaries were directed utilizing patients with uncommon monogenetic issue, however these are presently dwarfed by the clinical testing of quality therapeutics for more typical conditions, for example, malignancy, AIDS and cardiovascular illness. This is halfway because of an inability to accomplish long haul quality articulation with early vector frameworks, a basic prerequisite for amending numerous innate hereditary deformities. Presently, with the appearance of adeno-related viral (AAV) and lent viral vectors, which show steady quality articulation in creature thinks about, this mechanical obstruction, may have been survived. These vectors are foreseen to shape the premise of numerous gene therapy protocols for acquired hereditary illnesses.

Cell Science and Stem Cell Research

The extract derived from the plant cell culture technology is being harnessed and utilized as an active ingredient in anti-aging skincare products. In recent years, researchers have identified naturally occurring botanicals with substantial antioxidant activity proven to protect skin stem cells from UV-induced oxidative stress, inhibit inflammation, neutralize free radicals and reverse the effects of photo-aging by means of anti-oxidant activity. Consequently, cosmeceutical products containing plant stem cell derived extracts have the ability to promote healthy cell proliferation and protect against UV-induced dermatological cellular damage in humans. In contrast to epidermal stem cells, plant stem cells are totipotent that they are capable of regenerating an entirely new, whole plant. Through innovative plant stem cell technology, scientists are able to extract tissue from botanicals and regenerate stem cells can be harnessed for use in humans. The use of stem cells derived from botanicals plant, rather than human stem cells, avoids the controversy surrounding the source or methods of extraction of human stem cells while still harnessing the potential of these intriguing cells and its effect in anti-photo aging.

Molecular Basis of Epigenetics

Epigenetics refers to changes in a chromosome which has influence on gene activity and expression. It is also used to describe any heritable phenotypic change that doesn't derive from a modification of the chromosome such as prions. Epigenetics is the mechanism for storing and perpetuating or continuing indefinitely a “memory” at the cellular level. The basic molecular epigenetic mechanisms that are widely studied at present – regulation of chromatin structure of cell through histone post-translational modifications and covalent modification of DNA principally through the method of DNA methylation. Chromatin is a dynamic structure that integrates potentially hundreds of signals from the cell surface and has effects of coordinated and appropriate transcriptional response in cell. It is increasingly clear that epigenetic marking of chromatin and DNA itself is an important component of the cell signal integration of entire function that is performed by the genome. Moreover, the changes in the epigenetic state of chromatin in cell can have lasting effects on behavioral changes.
