In Canada, the factory for the production of stem cells will be
The Government of Canada recently announced the launch of the project on creation of the automated production of the stem cells of the plant. Growing stem cells can solve many problems in the field of medicine and save lives. According to Bloomberg Edition for the implementation of such an ambitious project would meet the General Electric Company and the Center for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine in Toronto.
In addition to the cell production center in Toronto will develop new types of them needed to combat various diseases. Now it has the possibility of growing stem cells, but this process takes quite a long time. In order to grow a few dozen cells for a particular patient will take several weeks. And at many stages should be monitored by humans, so plant in Toronto should be automated as much as possible, because the number of "made" the cell should be at least several thousand. Moreover, the production will follow an artificial intelligence. Over time, he will be able to learn and offer various options to optimize production. Stem cell therapy in conjunction with the editing of the genome has already proven to be effective in treating a number of diseases. Among them, some hereditary diseases and diseases of the brain, so the establishment of such a production can be extremely positive. It is worth noting that at the moment stem cells are used not only in medicine, but also in a variety of clinical trials, so interested in the new production, and large companies. For example, a pharmaceutical company Bayer and some of Silicon Valley giants have supported the project by investing in it several hundred million US dollars.
