Human embryonic stem cells were first derived from mouse embryos in 1981 by Martin Evans and Matthew Kaufman, and independently by Gail R. Martin. In 1995, the first successful culturing of embryonic stem cells from non-human primates occurred at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Another breakthrough followed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in November 1998 when a group led by Dr. James Thomson developed a technique to isolate and grow hESCs derived from human blastocysts. Federal funds to support hESC research became available on August 9, 2001, when President Bush announced his decision regarding federal funding for hESC research.
Because of their plasticity and unlimited capacity for self-renewal, hESCs have been proposed for use in wide range of applications, including toxicology testing, tissue engineering, cellular therapies, and basic stem cell biology research (http://www.bharatbook.com/
However, human embryonic stem cell research is heavily encumbered by patents held by the University of Wisconsin's Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), which creates significant challenges for companies seeking to develop new products.
This market research report explores the complex IP landscape affecting development of human embryonic stem cell products, providing clear guidance for companies entering or already within the market, from collaborating with WARF to less costly alternatives - such as circumventing the claims, conducting research off-shore, and developing embryonic stem cell products for other species.
Key Findings Include:
Trends for hESC Grants, Scientific Publications, and Patents
Market Size Determination for the hESC Product Market
5-Year Market Size Projections (2013-2017)
Embryonic Stem Cell Patent Restrictions and Strategies to Circumvent Claims
Geographical Breakdown (Leading Countries Conducting hESC Research)
Breakdown of Embryonic Stem Cell Research, by Application and Species
