U of T’s Medicine by Design helps unite international researchers working to map every human cell – News@UofT
Posted: at 2:09 am
TheHuman Genome Project,a large-scale international effort to determine the complete DNA sequence that defines the human body, took more than 12 years to complete and involved thousands of researchers.
Now,a similar effort is underway to map each of the trillions of cells in the human body.
The Human Cell Atlas(HCA) would be acomprehensive map of cells that has the potential to rapidly advance the understanding of human health and the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of disease, according to Gary Bader,a computational biologist and professor at the University of Torontos Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research and the department of molecular genetics in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine.
This project will likely be larger than the Human Genome Project, and it requires a massive international effort. No single individual or institute could do this on their own, he says. Its multi-disciplinary in nature, and pulls in people from genomics and technology development, basic biology, clinical research, computational biology and ethics.
We encourage participation from all countries and relevant scientific communities.
Bader, who is on the organizing committee for HCA, is helping to co-ordinatea scientific meeting of the HCA from Aug. 25 to 27. The meeting will focus on human development and pediatrics, mapping the body from conception to adolescence. Medicine by Design is a lead sponsor of the meeting, along with theChan Zuckerberg Initiativeand others.
Bader says the August meeting will bring together groups of people who are working on critical questions about cell types and states during human development.
Were aiming to deliver a highly interactive meeting that will provide plenty of opportunities for virtual face-to-face interaction in breakout discussion sessions, Bader says. A silver lining of having the meeting online instead of in-person, as was originally planned, is that there are no space restrictions. It can be open to anyone who wants to attend. Also, there are no travel costs for attendees, and we are able to offer registration free of charge.
Session topics will include: understanding cellular decision-making during development;lineage tracing; clonal evolution; tagging and its applications;and developmental origins of health outcomes over a lifespan. There will also be a session on regenerative medicine, led byGuoji GuoandJason Rock, focusing on how developmental and pediatric single cell atlas data can shed light on tissue aging and repair processes.
Regenerative medicine uses stem cells to replace diseased tissues and organs, creating therapies in which cells are the biological product. Regenerative medicine can also mean triggering stem cells that are already present in the human body to repair damaged tissues or to modulate immune responses. Increasingly, regenerative medicine researchers are using a stem-cell lens to identify critical interactions or defects that prepare the ground for disease, paving the way for new approaches to preventing disease before it starts.
There is strong evidence that well have to really understand development to live up to regenerative medicines key aims, Bader says. There are questions we dont know the answer tofor example, why do children heal better than adults? These answers are essential for researchers who are developing stem cell therapies or ways to encourage self-repair in the body.
The HCA group is mapping 14 organ systems, each organized into its own bio network. For instance, the gut, heart and kidney each have their own bio network, comprisingresearchers that focus on that specific system. Bader is part of the liver bio network.
Bader, along with the Temerty Faculty of Medicine Associate ProfessorSonya MacParlandand ProfessorIan McGilvray a scientist,and surgeon and senior scientist, respectively,at University Health Network (UHN) are part of a Medicine by Design collaborative research team that, in 2018,created the firstmap of human liver cells at the molecular level. They are currently part of the large, Medicine by Design-funded team projectstudying how to harness the livers power to regenerate.
The liver map represents the first time a human organ has been charted at the single-cell level. It illuminated the basic biology of the liver in ways that could eventually increase the success of transplant surgery and enable powerful regenerative medicine treatments for liver disease such as regenerating the liver with stem cells.
This is a tool that can be used by researchers who are developing cells in the lab. For instance, a U of T and UHN teamrecently published work that showed they can develop functional blood vessel cells found in the liver. This drew on our liver map work, which provided a benchmark for those researchers to compare their cells with adult human liver cells, says Bader. HCA continues to expand this work for example in pediatricsand it will become a fundamental resource for regenerative medicine researchers.
Medicine by Design is sponsoring the HCA meeting in August because its an opportunity to engage with the international effort on human cell mapping, which creates new scientific collaborations for the Medicine by Design community.
Moreover, the HCA informs new directions in regenerative medicine research, says Michael Sefton, executive director of Medicine by Design and aUniversity Professorin the department of chemical engineering and applied chemistry in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering and theInstitute of Biomedical Engineering.
This international event will connect fields and people that traditionally dont work together, says Sefton, whose lab is located at the Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research. A massive collaborative undertaking is whats necessary to bring HCA to fruition, and Medicine by Design is proud to support this effort. We cant overstate how much the HCA project could advance and transform regenerative medicine.
Bader says in addition to the opportunities for scientific learning, the event could have other benefits for attendees.
One of the advantages to attending the HCA meeting is the opportunity to network and potentially find out about funding opportunities one might not be aware of otherwise. Its a great opportunity for researchers to connect beyond their local collaborations.
Funded by a $114-million grant from theCanada First Research Excellence Fund, Medicine by Design brings together more than 150 principal investigators at U of T and its partner hospitals to advance regenerative medicine discoveries.
Medicare Data: Significant Reductions in Amputations, Emergency Visits, and Hospital Readmissions Associated with Advanced Treatment Using Skin…
Posted: at 2:09 am
New study shows advanced treatment (AT) for management of LEDUs among Medicare beneficiaries is associated with significant reductions in major and minor amputation, emergency department (ED) use, and hospital readmissions vs. LEDUs managed without AT (NAT)
MARIETTA, Ga., Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MiMedx Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDXG) (MIMEDX or the Company), an industry leader in utilizing amniotic tissue as a platform for regenerative medicine, today announced publication of its peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Wound Care (JWC), addressing the observed impact of Advanced Treatment (AT) using all high-cost skin substitute products in lower extremity diabetic ulcers (LEDUs) based on data from the Medicare Limited Dataset (October 1, 2015 through October 2, 2018). The study assessed outcome in patients receiving AT with all high-cost skin substitute products, as designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), for LEDUs versus No Advanced Treatment (NAT), and found that AT use could lead to a 42% reduction in major and minor amputations and all related costs, compared to NAT. Further, the study highlights preferable outcomes when AT follows parameters for use (FPFU), underscoring the importance of early treatment with regular intervals and well-defined treatment guidelines.
The data derived from this study are important for a number of reasons, noted Dr. David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Southwestern Academic Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Most notably, it is the first, to our knowledge, to broadly evaluate the parameters for use and associated observed impact of these advanced treatments in the wound care space. The substantial reduction, not only in amputation, but also in hospital readmission rates and visits to the emergency room suggests that our patients may be able to live more hospital-free and activity-rich days when we focus on getting to wound closure.
In 2018, an estimated three million Americans suffered from diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) a type of LEDU. Among patients with DFUs, more than half will develop an infection. Up to 20% of infected DFUs require major or minor amputations.
Understanding the health outcome and financial implications of different courses of treatment is essential to improving patient health and reducing cost burden to providers, patients, families, payors, and the healthcare system overall, said Dr. William Tettelbach, a lead author of the study and MIMEDX Principal Medical Officer, Medical Affairs. These data demonstrate the significant beneficial impact of AT with all high-cost skin substitute products for difficult-to-heal LEDUs, and the additional benefit of treating quickly and regularly with AT.
In addition to the physical and emotional impact on patients and caregivers, DFUs create significant economic burden, accounting for up to $4.5 billion in Medicare spending and up to $18.7 billion when the cost of infection management is included. In 2014, Medicare spending for the treatment of DFUs was an estimated $6.218.7 billion. The annual payor burden of DFU treatment ranged from $9.113.2 billion, in large part due to increased hospitalizations, home healthcare, emergency department visits, and outpatient or physician office visits.
Reducing major and minor amputations has a long-term effect on ongoing health costs, evidenced by 2010 estimates of $60,000 per patient amputation, with care costs in the year following an amputation of $44,200. The longer a DFU remains open, the greater the risk for infection, osteomyelitis, and amputation. In patients with diabetes, 85% of lower-extremity amputations are preceded by a non-healing DFU and the studys findings indicate that 42% of these amputations may be preventable.
The immediate physical and economic toll on people with diabetic lower extremity complications, including amputations, have been correlated to an increased five-year mortality rate. While these costs were not examined in this study, their inclusion could extend the economic and quality of life benefits gained by using AT.
Timothy R. Wright, MIMEDX Chief Executive Officer, commented, As a company dedicated to advancing scientific and health economic research that informs and improves patient care and outcomes, we see these analyses as providing crucial validation that advanced treatment can reduce the suffering and expenses caused by chronic LEDUs. Future research must build upon these findings and inform better treatment guidelines and reimbursement policies, so that together, we raise the standard of care for patients with LEDUs.

Catriona Jamieson, MD, PhD, professor of medicine, Division of Hematology-Oncology, deputy director, Koman Family Presidential Endowed Chair in Cancer Research, chief, Division of Regenerative Medicine, deputy director, Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center, co-leader, Hematologic Malignancies Program, director, Stem Cell Research, UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, discusses the importance of treating patients with myelofibrosis at diagnosis.
Despite a lack of consensus across the field, starting patients on treatment when they present with myelofibrosis may be optimal, Jamieson says. Historically, patients diagnosed with myelofibrosis were monitored until disease progression because treatment options were limited and ineffective, Jamieson explains.
However, in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), initial treatment with TKIs at diagnosis have provided prolonged responses in most patients who can tolerate therapy, Jamieson says. Moreover, TKIs are generally well tolerated, so most patients can derive a substantial response, Jamieson adds.
The treatment of patients with myelofibrosis appears to be in-line with the story in CML, Jamieson says. However, it is important to complete the Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Symptom Assessment Form - Total Symptom Score, and understand the patients level of fibrosis, presence or absence of high-risk mutations or cytogenetics, white count, platelet, and hemoglobin levels, and transfusion-dependence status, Jamieson says. Ultimately, most patients with myelofibrosis should be treated up front when these factors are considered, Jamieson concludes.

What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a new form of medicine that uses artificially processed and cultured cells or tissues to repair, regenerate, and restore certain tissue or organ functions that have been lost due to causes such as illness, accidents, or aging.
Many conditions considered hard to treat or believed to lack effective treatments (e.g., restoring brain functions of patients that have suffered brain damage from ischemic stroke, or motor functions of patients that have lost the use of their legs due to spinal cord injuries sustained in an accident) are expected to be overcome by the power of regenerative medicine in the future.
Regenerative medicine mainly uses human cells to repair and restore functions of tissues and organs. It encompasses a wide range of treatment techniques and approaches ranging from the use of microscopic cells to organ transplants.The primary cells currently being researched for applications in regenerative medicines are somatic stem cells, embryonic stem (ES) cells, and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Stem cells can differentiate or proliferate into different types of cells, and are believed to be effective in promoting repair and regeneration of tissues or organs that have been damaged due to illness or other causes. Research on regenerative medicine using cells has been underway even before iPS cells were developed.
Professor Shinya Yamanaka, who pioneered iPS cell research, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his accomplishments in 2012, paving the way for widespread research in regenerative medicine around the world. The Japanese government designated regenerative medicine as a growth industry with the enforcement of the Act on Securing Safety of Regenerative Medicine and the revised Pharmaceutical Act in 2014, marking the start of a countrywide effort to lead the world in the practical application of regenerative medicines.
Various transplants that use cell types created from human stem cells, embryonic stem (ES) cells, or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS) cells are being planned in Japan.
The human body is said to comprise over 37 trillion individual cells belonging to over 200 cell types. Through a repeated process of cell division and proliferation, what starts out as a single fertilized egg ultimately differentiates into the full range of cells that make up the human body (such as nerve cells, cardiac muscle cells, and liver cells).
The human body is made up of both differentiated cells (somatic cells) and cells that are still differentiating (somatic stem cells). Stem cells are characterized by the capacity to self-renew or differentiate into cells that form specific tissues and organs. Somatic stem cells include hematopoietic stem cells, neural stem cells, and mesenchymal stem cells, which differentiate into a limited range of cells. For example, hematopoietic stem cells, found in large numbers in bone marrow, produce hematopoietic cells such as white blood cells and platelets, but they normally do not differentiate into other cell types.
Embryonic stem (ES) cells can differentiate into a much wider variety of cell types than somatic stem cells. They are believed to have the capacity (at least in theory) to develop into the full range of cells that make up the human body, including cardiac muscle cells, nerve cells, liver cells, and blood cells. However, because ES cells are derived from fertilized eggsin many cases from surplus embryos discarded in infertility treatmentsthe practice of using such cells for regenerative medicine has stirred debate centered on ethical concerns in many countries. In particular, the use of cells derived from aborted fetuses has drawn wide criticism on ethical grounds.
In 2007, Professor Shinya Yamanaka of Kyoto University successfully developed induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cellsa new form of pluripotent cells that is not derived from fertilized eggsfrom human skill cells. iPS cells closely resemble ES cells by virtue of their capacity to differentiate into a wide range of cells, including cardiac muscle cells, nerve cells, liver cells, and blood cells. They offer an advantage over ES cells because they eliminate the ethical concerns. However, iPS cells, like ES cells, can proliferate indefinitely, and issues such as controlling their proliferation capacity will need to be resolved before they can be used in practical applications. iPS cells are an incredible technology with tremendous potential, but it will take some time before they can be put into practical applications.
Regenerative medicine that uses somatic cells (differentiated cells) can only target a limited range of conditions, and development efforts in this field have therefore already reached a mature stage. In contrast, stem cells (which can differentiate into other cells) can be used to target a much broader range of conditions, and are therefore actively being researched around the world.
Among somatic cells, mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), which can be readily isolated and expanded from bone marrow aspirate, are a suitable cell source for regenerative medicine, and they are already used in therapeutic applications.
Among regenerative medicines, SanBio focuses on developing products for the central nervous system that are not effectively treated at the present time. Examples of these diseases include dysfunction associated with: stroke, traumatic brain injury, retinal degeneration (e.g., age-related macular degeneration), spinal cord injury, Parkinsons disease, Alzheimers disease, and others.Our products are intended to restore motor and sensory functions by inducing or promoting the innate, natural regenerative processes of patients physical functions that were lost due to diseases or accidents.
