OMAHA, Neb. A gunman who held a pharmacy owner hostage at his store in rural western Nebraska is dead after a 14-hour standoff, the Nebraska State Patrol said early Wednesday. The gunman, 27-year-old Andres Gonzales, died after a shoot-out with Nebraska State Patrol SWAT team members at the pharmacy in Alliance, patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said in a statement. None of the SWAT officers were injured. Gonzales earlier shot two city police officers and a state patrol officer, but none of them suffered life-threatening injuries, Nebraska State Patrol Lt. Lance Rogers said. The statement did not explain how Gonzales, of Alliance, died. The standoff began Tuesday morning when Gonzales entered the Thiele Pharmacy & Gifts in downtown Alliance, a Nebraska Panhandle city of about 8,600 people. Authorities said police officers responded to reports of a robbery. Gonzales took the pharmacys owner, 62-year-old Charles Lierk, hostage for hours, Collins said. Lierk managed to escape but was shot as he ran and is in stable condition, Collins said. Police and the state patrol did not say who shot Lierk. Ray Hielscher told the Lincoln Journal Star that he was watching the pharmacy from a Radio Shack across the street and saw the … Continue reading

Fresh, purified fat stem cells grow bone faster, better

Posted: at 5:15 am

LOS ANGELES UCLA stem cell scientists who purified a subset of stem cells from fat tissue and used the stem cells to grow bone discovered that the bone formed faster and was of higher quality than bone grown using traditional methods. The finding may one day eliminate the need for painful bone grafts that use material taken from patients during invasive procedures. Adipose, or fat, tissue is thought to be an ideal source of mesenchymal stem cells cells capable of developing into bone, cartilage, muscle and other tissues because such cells are plentiful in the tissue and easily obtained through procedures like liposuction, said Dr. Chia Soo, vice chair of research for the UCLA Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Soo and Bruno Pault, the co-senior authors on the project, are members of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA. Traditionally, cells taken from fat had to be cultured for weeks to isolate the stem cells which could become bone, and their expansion increases the risk of infection and genetic instability. A fresh, non-cultured cell composition called stromal vascular fraction (SVF) also is used to grow bone. However, SVF cells taken from … Continue reading

Some Stem-Cells May Not Be The Answer For Heart Disease

Posted: June 12, 2012 at 10:14 pm

June 12, 2012 The use of stem-cells building-block cells that are harvested from embryos or adults to treat heart disease could rely on faith as much as it does science, after billions of dollars in research has not produced the results that researchers have been looking for. Questions and concerns on the topic arose during the recent opening of the multi-million-dollar Scottish Center for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) in Edinburgh, chaired by Sir Ian Wilmut, the renowned scientist whose Dolly the sheep clone in 1996, was a groundbreaking step in stem cell technology. During the opening ceremonies of the Center, Christine Mummery of the Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands discussed how a 2001 claim, based on mice experimentation, indicated that bone-marrow cells could mend heart damaged by coronary disease, caused a mad rush of people to the clinics looking for a cure-all. With nothing in the way of systematic research in animals, the first patients were being treated within a year, prematurely by Mummerys account. She argued that the paper that launched the mass stampede was completely wrong, and subsequent studies proved that. But despite the findings, the 2001 paper has never been withdrawn. Norwegian professor Harald Arnesen in … Continue reading

Heart disease and stem-cell treatments: caught in a clinical stampede

Posted: at 10:14 pm

A few years ago, concerns over these heart trials were voiced by a Norwegian professor, Harald Arnesen. He concluded in 2007 that they are not convincing and that one German team had achieved striking results only because the control group in its trial had done particularly badly. Prof Arnesen called for a moratorium on this kind of stem-cell therapy. That still did not deter the clinicians. This January, another trial funded by the EU was announced the largest of all, with 3,000 heart-attack patients recruited from across Europe. The idea behind the trials is straightforward. During a heart attack, a clogged blood vessel starves heart muscle of oxygen. Up to a billion heart muscle cells, called cardiomyocytes, can be damaged, and the body responds by replacing them with relatively inflexible scar tissue, which can lead to fatal heart failure. So why not implant stem cells that can grow into cardiomyocytes? Stem cells, of course, come in many kinds: the embryonic variety have the potential to turn into all 200 cell types in the body. Adult stem cells, harvested from the patient, have a more limited repertoire: bone marrow stem cells generate blood cells, for example. So to claim, as was … Continue reading

Summit Corporation PLC: Summit achieves SMT C1100 Phase 1 dosing milestone that triggers milestone payment

Posted: at 10:13 pm

ABINGDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire -06/12/12)- SUMMIT ACHIEVES SMT C1100 PHASE 1 DOSING MILESTONE THAT TRIGGERS MILESTONE PAYMENT Summit (SUMM.L), a UK drug discovery company, today announced that it has successfully passed a milestone in the Phase 1 trial of SMT C1100 for the treatment of the fatal genetic disease Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy ('DMD'), which triggered the final payment from a $1.5 million funding agreement with US-based DMD organisations. SMT C1100, an oral small molecule compound, is a potential disease-modifying drug that works by increasing, or upregulating, the amount of a naturally occurring protein called utrophin. The Phase 1 dose-escalation study in healthy volunteers was initiated in May 2012 and will now progress to the stage where participants receive multiple doses. Results from the trial are expected by the end of this year. The Phase 1 trial is being supported by a group of US-based DMD organisations: the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Charley's Fund, Cure Duchenne, the Foundation to Eradicate Duchenne, Nash Avery Foundation and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy. "We are grateful for the continuing support from the DMD organisations as we make significant progress in the Phase 1 trial of SMT C1100," said Glyn Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of Summit. "The funding … Continue reading
