About 75% of people over 70 years of age show changes consistent with osteoarthritis and symptoms such as pain, joint stiffness and joint deformities. Osteoarthritis affects more than 25 million people in the United States alone.

Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function by replacing damaged tissue and/or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal previously irreparable tissues or organs.

IntelliCell is planning an in-human clinical trial in late 2014 to study if the IntelliCell vascular fraction cells may demonstrate measurable benefits for patients suffering from this debilitating condition.

Newswise NEW YORK, NY (April 9, 2014) Dr. Mahendra Rao, who has directed the Center for Regenerative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health (NIH CRM) since 2010, will join The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute as its Vice President for Regenerative Medicine, a newly created position, Susan Solomon, NYSCF Chief Executive Officer, announced today.

Dr. Rao, who holds an MD degree and a PhD in developmental neurobiology, is one of the nations most prominent stem cell scientists. He has over twenty years of experience in all aspects of the stem cell field including government, academia, and business. Before joining the NIH, Dr. Rao spent six years as the vice president of Regenerative Medicine at Life Technologies, Inc. (now Thermo Fisher Scientific) after serving as the chief of Neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging and co-founding Q Therapeutics, a neural stem cell company based in Utah. Dr. Rao is tenured at the University of Utah School of Medicine in both Neurobiology and Anatomy and has over twenty submitted and ten issued patents.

Dr. Raos expertise in translational research, academia, and industry make him a valuable asset in our mission to take stem cell research from the laboratory to the clinic in order to find cures for the diseases that affect those we love, Solomon said. We are delighted to have him on board.

Solomon said that recruiting Dr. Rao is a major coup for NYSCF as it builds on its existing successes and carries out its strategic goals. Dr. Raos expertise and experience in setting up a company and in leading the translational effort at NIH will complement their expertise in automation and high-throughput induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell generation.

I am enthused about NYSCFs efforts to generate high-quality stem cell lines and partner with the pharma and academic communities. I am excited to be joining them to advance their goals, said Dr. Rao.

In addition to his business career, Dr. Rao has served on scientific advisory boards, editorial boards and review panels and on committees including as the U.S. Food and Drug Administrations Cellular, Tissue, and Gene Therapies Advisory Committee chair and as the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine and International Society for Stem Cell Research liaison to the International Society for Cellular Therapy. Currently, he sits on the board of Cesca Therapeutics, Inc. and serves as the Chief Strategy Officer and Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board at Q Therapeutics.

The Queensland government denies it’s restricting free speech by launching legal action to gag doctors’ unions during a dispute over contracts.

Senior doctors are threatening to resign over new individual contracts that they say will strip employment protections and compromise patient care.

Queensland Health has applied for a Federal Court injunction to stop doctors’ groups and unions spreading “misleading” information about the contracts.

Unions say its bullying tactics but Health Minister Lawrence Springborg maintains there are serious concerns about the veracity of the information.

“It is absolutely wrong to say we curtail free speech,” he told parliament on Wednesday.

“The motivation of this action was simply that if doctors are going to be advised to take a course of action which could be leading them to leaving Queensland Health’s employment, they need the best possible advice provided to them.”

The government has taken issue with legal advice telling doctors they will be worse off under the contracts.

The advice was published on the Australian Medical Association Queensland website.

Mr Springborg called the document “commentary dressed up as legal advice”.

“If people seek to make what can be significant career-limiting choices, and the advice they have been provided is wrong, then that is not right for those who put that information out there,” he said.

Protester Julia Mitchell holds a sign at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court as arguments began to challenge the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that employers pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs as part of an employee’s healthcare, in Washington, March 25, 2014.

March 26, 2014|10:45 am

What if the federal government ordered you to act against your conscience – to take part in something you believed to be objectively wrong – or else be punished with huge fines?

This is no idle question. It describes exactly what is happening in America today: The Obama administration is ordering businesses and other organizations with 50 or more employees to have their insurance plans cover drugs and devices which can cause early abortions. To many business owners, that means either cooperating in grave evil, dropping insurance they have always provided their workers, or being forced out of business.

Just ask David and Barbara Green, owners of the giant chain of Hobby Lobby stores. Just ask the Hahn family, Mennonites who own Conestoga Wood Specialties. These courageous Americans are defending not only their own rights but also those of all Americans who wish to live their lives and run their businesses in accord with their free consciences and their deepest beliefs.

That is why the public policy groups and the women’s coalition that we represent signed an amici curiae (“friends of the court”) that was filed with the Supreme Court of the United States in two lawsuits against Obama Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. While we do not take a position on contraception, we do assert fiercely our freedom of conscience and religious liberty.

The cases center on ObamaCare’s Health and Human Services mandate, which uses the threat of ruinous fines to coerce private individuals and organizations into becoming complicit in abortions – to, as our brief says, “violate religious beliefs by covering in health insurance plans devices and drugs that can prevent an embryo from implanting in the womb.” In doing so, the Mandate directly attacks the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom. It also contradicts several federal laws that protect the people’s conscience rights concerning abortion, such as the Church Amendment of 1973.

The mandate’s departure from respect for conscience rights is deepening our nation’s social and political divisions. It plainly creates a national conflict over religious freedom by trampling upon the conscience rights of the many Americans who oppose abortion. Those Americans, it should not even be necessary to point out, include millions of women such as ourselves who cherish and champion the right to life and who prize and defend Americans’ rights of conscience and religious liberty.
