Tissue regeneration as next-generation therapy for COPD – potential applications
Shunsuke Ohnishi, Noritoshi Nagaya, International Journal of COPD 2008
Growing evidence obtained from basic and translational research on regenerative medicine in COPD suggests that administration of humoral factors responsible for activation of endogenous stem/progenitor cells or administration of exogenous stem/progenitor cells may be a potential therapeutic tool in the treatment of COPD.

Challenges in the Development of Autologous Cell Therapy Products

VesCell is an autologous stem/pro-genitor cellular product composed of non-mobilized, blood-derived cell populations of HSC/progenitor cells and ACP lineage cells. The development of VesCell required an in-depth understanding of the biological characteristics of the product and the establishment of a tightly controlled manufacturing process. The resulting consistent and reliable manufacturing procedure of VesCell enabled its evaluation in preclinical and clinical studies designed to assess its safety and efficacy.

Isolation of an adult blood-derived progenitor cell population capable of differentiation into angiogenic, myocardial and neural lineages.
Yael Porat, Svetlana Porozov, Danny Belkin, Daphna Shimoni, Yehudit Fisher, Adina Belleli, David Czeiger, William F. Silverman, Michael Belkin, Alexander Battler, Valentin Fulga and Naphtali Savion – British Journal of Haematology 2006

Blood-derived adult stem cells were previously considered impractical for therapeutic use because of their small numbers. However, this study reports the simple and rapid method of SCP generation and the resulting considerable quantities of lineage-specific precursor cells makes it a potential source of autologous treatment for a variety of diseases.

Human angiogenic cell precursors restore function in the infarcted rat heart: A comparison of cell delivery routes-Full
Zhuo Sun, Jun Wu, Hiroko Fujii, Jiang Wu, Shu-Hong Li, Svetlana Porozov, Adina Belleli, Valentin Fulga, Yael Porat, Ren-Ke Li – The European Journal of Heart Failure 2008

The current data suggest that human ACPs generated from peripheral blood may represent a novel therapeutic approach to treat myocardial ischemic disease.
