    Default Efficiency of creating IPS cells from 1 to 100%

    And more good news for Team Tokyo. A group of researchers not only sped up the process of creating IPS cells 4x, but also increased efficiency from 1% to 100%. Great news indeed. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0918132440.htm

    Wow Arashi! This is one of the MAJOR hurdles out of the way! We are so much closer than I anticipated

    Next on the agenda is to make sure that these cells have the same telomere length as embryonic cells! If so, ladies and gentleman we need to test these in a more risky condition such as liver disease, wait a few years for safety to be proven and Tsuji lab should get the green light to go ahead with their first in man trials!

    We are close...I can smell it

    Here's a recap of the final part of the interview with Dr Tsuji in May 2012 regarding what's holding them back:

    “There is a need for a number of improvements, including magnification techniques for stem cells, before the method is applied to a large surface as in humans,” Dr. Tsuji says. “We are looking at some 10 years from now.”

    I don't even think Dr Tsuji was expecting such a major breakthrough within one year of their results!

    This will snowball into major medical breakthroughs and trials over the next few years

    Haha if BTT were a person, they would most certainly be bipolar.

    Good news, though.

    10 YEARS?

    That's WAY too long

    However, if in 10 years I will be able to regain all my hair for a reasonable price, I'll still gladly take it

    Also keep in mind that the first ever human clinical trial with IPS cells has recently started and is now recruiting. Also in Japan of course, which seems to have taken the world leading position regarding stem cells. http://www.rikenresearch.riken.jp/eng/roundup/7499.html
    You can bet Team Tokyo is keeping a close eye on all these developments. In fact, since all regulatory hurdles in Japan have been cleared, I'm hoping they're going to start their own trails within 18 months (like they planned)
