International Cellular Medicine Society

International Cellular Medicine Society We are patients, doctors, and researchers advancing the future of adult cell based medicine. Join us! The International Cellular Medicine Society (ICMS) is a 501c3 non-profit that represents doctors, researchers and patients from over 35 countries and 6 continents who are dedicated to advancement of adult stem cell medicine.

Our society strives to be the primary provider of unbiased, objective information regarding the medical use of autologous adult stem cells. Through the publication of best practice standards, the operation of a comprehensive stem cell patient treatment registry, and the provision of an international Institutional Review Board, the ICMS is working to evidence the safety of these innovative therapies.

Mission: It is the mission of the ICMS to advance the field of adult cell based medicine through a steadfast dedication to developing international best practice standards that ensure patient safety, facilitate physician education, and necessitate peer oversight.

Researchers study autism by making stem cells from autistic patients

Researchers study autism by making stem cells from autistic patients: Researchers in California and Japan recently generated stem cells from people with Timothy syndrome and began differentiating them into neurons in an attempt to gain further insights into autism. Their results are published in Nature Medicine.

People with Timothy syndrome have autism caused by a mutation in a neuronal calcium channel. A new study uses stem cells made from Timothy's patients to define how the mutation impacts cellular functioning and might lead to autistic symptoms.

Perry wants to put stem cells therapy to the test in Texas

Perry wants to put stem cells therapy to the test in Texas:
In his latest defiance of the federal government, Gov. Rick Perry is trying to make Texas the nation's top provider of an unlicensed therapy touted by some as the future of medicine but considered not close to ready for mainstream use by scientists in the field.

Patient, doctors encouraged by ALS trial
The first part of the ALS study, sponsored by the Maryland-based biotech company Neuralstem, is designed to show that the surgical procedure to inject the stem cells into the spine is safe, and that the patients' bodies won't reject them. According to researchers, the cells did not harm any of the 12 patients in the Emory study, nor did they accelerate the progression of their ALS.

Two years ago, Ted Harada felt his left leg weakening, and he found himself running out of breath. Doctors thought he had asthma, but they found he had ALS.
