DUBLIN, July 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Global Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (iPSC) Industry Report, 2022” report has been added to’s offering.

Since the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology in 2006, significant progress has been made in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. New pathological mechanisms have been identified and explained, new drugs identified by iPSC screens are in the pipeline, and the first clinical trials employing human iPSC-derived cell types have been initiated.

iPSCs can be used to explore the causes of disease onset and progression, create and test new drugs and therapies, and treat previously incurable diseases. Today, methods of commercializing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) include:

  • Cell Therapy:
    iPSCs are being explored in a diverse range of cell therapy applications for the purpose of reversing injury or disease.
  • Disease Modelling:
    By generating iPSCs from patients with disorders of interest and differentiating them into disease-specific cells, iPSCs can effectively create disease models “in a dish.”
  • Drug Development and Discovery:
    iPSCs have the potential to transform drug discovery by providing physiologically relevant cells for compound identification, target validation, compound screening, and tool discovery.
  • Personalized Medicine:
    The use of techniques such as CRISPR enable precise, directed creation of knock-outs and knock-ins (including single base changes) in many cell types. Pairing iPSCs with genome editing technologies is adding a new dimension to personalized medicine.
  • Toxicology Testing:
    iPSCs can be used for toxicology screening, which is the use of stem cells or their derivatives (tissue-specific cells) to assess the safety of compounds or drugs within living cells.

Other applications of iPSCs include their use as research products, as well as their integration into 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering, and clean meat production. Technology allowing for the mass-production and differentiation of iPSCs in industrial-scale bioreactors is also advancing at breakneck speed.

iPSC Derived Clinical Trials

The first clinical trial using iPSCs started in 2008, and today, that number has surged worldwide. Most of the current clinical trials do not involve the transplant of iPSCs into humans, but rather, the creation and evaluation of iPSC lines for clinical purposes. Within these trials, iPSC lines are created from specific patient populations to determine if these cell lines could be a good model for a disease of interest.

The therapeutic applications of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have also surged in recent years. Since the discovery of iPSCs in 2006, it took only seven years for the first iPSC-derived cell product to be transplanted into a human patient in 2013. Since then, iPSC-derived cells have been used within a rapidly growing number of preclinical studies, physician-led studies, and formal clinical trials worldwide.
