Saw this article in Japan times. It should help the case for Breast reimbursement in Japan. It has to be Cytori....


Japanese researchers signal breast cancer regenerative medicine breakthrough

Japanese researchers have boasted a major breakthrough in regenerative medicine for breast cancer patients.

Led by Bin Nakayama, associate professor at Tottori University, the research team succeeded in enabling breast cancer patients to recover what was lost after breast-conserving surgery — an operation to remove the cancerous tissue but not the breast itself — by transplanting fat mixed with their own stem cells.

The team successfully conducted clinical tests between September and January on five women, aged between 30 and 60, who underwent breast-conserving surgery. At least a year has passed since they underwent the surgery and none showed signs of the cancer metastasizing when the latest tests were performed.

Under the tests, fat taken out of the patients’ abdomen or hips and mixed with their fat stem cells was transplanted into where tumors and surrounding tissues were removed from their breasts.

If only fat is transplanted, most of it is absorbed into the body and only about 30 percent of it remains, because it does not have blood vessels, according to the researchers.

Under the tests, 70 to 90 percent of transplanted fat remained after blood vessels were newly formed in the fat, according to the researchers.

Stem cells are apparently capable of helping bring blood vessels into fat from surrounding tissues, the researchers said.

In Japan, about 60,000 people develop breast cancer yearly, according to the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry. Among them, 60 percent undergo breast-conserving surgery, according to the Japanese Breast Cancer Society.

Nice one Joey.

Although its likely- it doesnt have to be- Yoshimura et al are able to do that with their manual laboratory stuff too.

Sugimachi and Kitamura already did 21 patients in 2006/2007, Kitamura- RESTORE I so yes- we knew it "worked" on Japanese women too.

Yeah- but its true - reimbursement in Japan could be an event that moves the PPS too quite substantially.

Actually if you google Bin Nakayama and Cytori there is a reference to the study.

Interesting.

If they stopped at 5 patients, it looks like a "small" additional requirement, which now passed the one year mark and could lead to filings and approval etc- if the MLHW wanted more, than they probably would have continued to the number that would satisfy them. :vegas:

If you do not talk to Tom before tomorrow, I will let you know-

this sounds pretty good.

Joey, it is Cytori.

In the August 2012 Shareholder letter there was specific reference to this trial and investigator.

ir.cytori.com/investor-relations/News/news-details/2012/August-2012-Shareholder-Letter/default.aspx

Tottori University: Bin Nakayama, MD, PhD
Plastic Surgery: Breast Reconstruction
Study title: Clinical study of breast reconstruction for post-partial mastectomy using adipose derived regenerative cells

Keep the good news coming ....... eventually the dam will break and the world will recognise the significance of Cytori's platform.

Joey is such a wonderful "web-researcher". He HAS to take a Facebook account and join this group here-

Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells Technology

Everybody else is cordially invited to join too- of course.
