  2. 2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. Several broad categories of stem cells exist, including: •Embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts •Post-natal stem cells, derived from newborn tissues •Adult stem cells, found in adult tissues – including Hematopoietic stem cells, Mesenchymal stem cells, and Neural stem cells •Induced pluripotent stem cells, reprogrammed from adult cells •Cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body •Animal stem cells, derived from non-human sources Stem cells are still a relatively new discovery, as the first mouse embryonic stem cells were derived from embryos in 1981, but it was not until 1995 that the first successful culturing of embryonic stem cells from non-human primates occurred and not until November 1998 a technique was developed to isolate and grow embryonic stem cells from human blastocysts. In 2006, induced pluripotent stem cells were produced for the first time from mouse cells and in 2007 there were produced from human cells. Furthermore, it was not until 2008 that the first full transplant of a human organ grown from adult stem cells was performed (a section of trachea was successfully transplanted into an adult woman in Spain). The past 10 years have also witnessed the production of piPSCs, R-NSCs, and VSELs. Together, this evidence suggests that additional types of stem cells will likely be discovered, each representing new opportunities for research product development. Clearly, laboratory research into stem cell derivation, manipulation, and application is rapidly expanding. To facilitate research resulting from these advances, a large and diverse stem cells products market has emerged. Large companies selling stem cell research products include Life Technologies, BD Biosciences, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and EMD Millipore, as well as over one-hundred other suppliers.
  3. 3. As of 2012, the following product categories accounted for more than 95% of all global stem cell product sales: •Antibodies to stem cell antigens •Bead-based stem cell separation systems •Stem cell protein purification and analysis tools •Tools for DNA and RNA-based characterization of stem cells •Stem cell culture and media •Stem cell specific growth factors and cytokines •Tools for stem cell gene regulation •Stem cell services and mechanisms for in vivo and in vitro stem cell tracking •Stem cell lines Furthermore, to sell products into the stem cell market, it is critical to understand the research applications for which stem cells being studied. One area of study is the use of stem cells to understand and treat birth disorders. However, of greater interest to researchers is the potential for use of stem cells in regenerative medicine to treat conditions ranging from diabetes, to cardiovascular disease and neurological disorders. For pharmaceutical companies, they have intense interest in the ability to use stem cells to improve drug target validation and toxicology screening. Furthermore, it is important for bio-pharmaceutical interested in stem cell therapy applications to understand underlying market forces, and in particular, to consider progressive areas of stem cell research as opportunistic areas for drug and therapy development. This report presents a range of topics of interest to these companies as well, including how advances in stem research can reveal potential new drug targets, improve methods of drug delivery, and provide personalized treatment strategies.
