There is great interest in stem cells because they have potential to replace defective or damaged cells resulting from a variety of disorders and injuries, leading to a range of new regenerative therapies. Stem cells also have value as a research tool, as their in vitro study would allow scientists to learn more about the function of various organs and the development of particular diseases; stem cells may also eventually permit drug developers to test emerging therapies on diseased cells.
For market-watchers in the pharmaceutical industry, the question is what potential they have and where they could take the pharmaceutical market. New scientific developments and recent changes in the U.S. Federal government's policy towards stem cells have made this potential more relevant. Kalorama Information has tackled the question in Stem Cells: Worldwide Markets for Transplantation, Cord Blood Banking and Drug Development. Kalorama analyst Alison Sahoo has built models to determine the best, moderate and worst case scenarios for the three key markets for stem cells:
Stem Cells in Drug Development
Stem Cells in Cord Blood Banking
Stem Cell Therapeutics
