Cambridge scientists cure paralysed dogs, see here

As reported by Sky News, scientists at Cambridge University used nose cells to help dogs with severe spinal injuries to walk again.

Scientists found that the dogs’ paralysis could be helped by fixing breaks in the spinal cord using olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) taken from their noses. These cells support nerve fibre growth that maintains a communication pathway between the nose and the brain.

A random controlled trial was conducted by scientists studying 34 pet dogs who had suffered spinal injuries as a result of previous accidents and back problems (no dogs were harmed deliberately to aid the research).

One group of dogs (23 dogs in total) had the OEC cells injected into the injury site, whilst the other group only had the liquid in which the cells were suspended injected. Those dogs which had been injected with the OEC cells showed significant improvement and were able to walk on the treadmill with the support of a harness.

The scientist believe that the transplanted OEC cells regenerated nerve fibres across the damaged region of the spinal cord, enabling the dogs to regain the use of their hind legs and coordinate movement with their front limbs.

Professor Robin Franklin, one of the study leaders from Cambridge University, said: “Our findings are extremely exciting because they show for the first time that transplanting these types of cell into a severely damaged spinal cord can bring about significant improvement.”

The findings could provide hope for  humans suffering for paralysis, however Prof Franklin warns the treatment is likely to only restore “at least a small amount” of movement in affected limbs. It is expected that the procedure will need to be used as part of a combination of treatments, alongside drug and physical therapies.

Prof Geoffrey Raisman, chair of Neural Regeneration at University College London said: “This is not a cure for spinal cord injury in humans – that could still be a long way off.  But this is the most encouraging advance for some years and is a significant step on the road towards it.”

The study was funded by the Medical Research Council and was published in the neurology journal, Brain. The research was a collaboration between the Medical Research Council’s Regenerative Medical Centre and Cambridge University Veterinary School.

The Cambridge cluster of bioscience companies is Europe’s most successful

The BBC reported that the group of  technology and bioscience based companies in and around Cambridge is one of Europe’s most successful and best know clusters.

Since 1960, about 5,000 hi-tech companies have been founded in the area, of which 1,400 remain in business, employing about 40,000 people.

Increasingly big companies are even staying in Cambridge after acquisition by overseas companies such as Broadcom, HP, Medimmune and Takeda, while others, like Amgen, Microsoft and Toshiba, have chosen to locate and maintain research labs and development teams there to be close to these people.

A new book “The Cambridge Phenomenon” is published this week, that  tracks and seeks to explain the area’s success. This book is written by By Charles Cotton and Kate Kirk

Cambridge introduces ‘hot-labbing’ to biotech entrepreneurs and start-ups

As reported by Business Weekly, a new partnership between The Babraham Research Campus and The University of Cambridge’s ideaSpace is set to create 410 new biotech jobs.

The agreement will allow early-stage biotech companies and entrepreneurs to gain access to both the laboratory facilities at The Babraham Research Campus, and the co-working community at the ideaSpace. This will therefore add an exciting new component to the start up ecosystem in Cambridge.

Babraham traditionally helps early stage biotech companies and entrepreneurs through programmes like the Biotechnology Investment Forum and the Cambridge Bio-Academic Showcase. However, this new collaboration would allow the Institute to reach a new audience – entrepreneurs from ideaSpace.

Entrepreneurs at ideaSpace will now be able to essentially partake in a spot of ‘hot-labbing’ – whereby they get part-time access to the laboratory facilities at the Babraham Institute. ideaSpace has been mainly high tech and software focused, but the new ‘hot-labbing’ agreement will allow them to attract members from other sectors.  This is explained by Dr Belinda Clarke, director of External Relations at ideaSpace, “The superb facilities at Babraham can help ideaSpace support a wider range of members from different sectors who require such specialist facilities.”

Lab 21 makes fungal diagnostics breakthrough

As reported by Business Weekly, Lab 21 Ltd, the clinical diagnostics specialist based in Cambridge, have made a breakthrough in fungal diagnostics which detect invasive Aspergillosis (IA).

Lab 21 have announced that that a test of its MycAssay Aspergillus has been successful in detecting IA in a mixed population of 159 patients which had underlying haematological or critical illness.

IA is seen in patients who are immunocompromised which results in some organs being less well protected by the immune system, as the blood supply to them is not as rich. This is usually a hidden, silent disease and early detection could result in greatly improved patient outcomes.

Berwyn Clarke, CSO at Lab21 said: “The results of this evaluation confirm that our new CE-marked assay for the diagnosis of IA represents a first-in-class addition to fungal diagnostics enabling faster, more reliable and sensitive case detection. We are in the process of conducting additional studies to firmly establish its clinical utility in high-risk settings.”

This is great news as current tests often give false-positive or false-negative results. This new data will hopefully be introduced into routine fungal disease guidelines as soon as possible.
