Growing Value of Stem Cells in Medicine to Create a US$2.4 Billion Opportunity for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell ((iPSC)

The global market for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell ((iPSC) is projected to reach US$2.4 billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 6.6%, over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that hold the capability to divide, and differentiate into specialized cells in the body. Stem cells act as repair system and replenish adult tissues, maintaining the turnover of regenerative organs such as the blood and skin. In organs, such as the bone marrow, stem cells frequently form replacement cells to repair the worn out tissue. These cells can respond to signals from the body and transverse a particular developmental pathway to differentiate into one specific cell type. Due to their regenerative properties, stem cells are being researched for therapeutic applications in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer, autoimmune diseases, spinal cord defects, among others. Stem Cell research is an exciting field where continuous discoveries are being made on new sources of stem cells and new methods of their acquisition and harvesting. Of late, adult stem cells have garnered a lion’s share of the stem cell space, purely based on the fact that they require less expensive clinical trials, need to comply with fewer regulatory norms and ethical issues compared to other stem cell variants such as embryonic stem cells.

Researchers around the world have been focusing research activities to develop adult stem cell therapies in order to combat a variety of diseases ranging from diabetes to heart disease. Factually, adult stem cells are the only stem cells that have been approved for use in transplants for the treatment of diseases such as cancer. Interestingly, with drug development based on embryonic stem cells being challenged amid growing debate over ethics and regulation of this research, iPSCS offers an alternate step forward in the commercialization of stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine. Embryonic stem cell research continues to remain embroiled in ethical, religious, and political controversies across various countries around the world. Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSs), which are reprogrammed to mimic embryonic stem cell-like state allowing expression of genes and human cells needed for therapeutic purposes, offers an attractive alternate way forwarding in furthering the goals of stem cell research. Pioneered in 2006 and developed in the following year, these cells are created by conversion of somatic cells into PSCs by introducing certain genes including Myc, Klf4, Oct3/4 and Sox2.

Pluripotent stem cells hold tremendous potential in the regenerative medicine arena. Based on their ability to proliferate indefinitely and develop into desirable cell type such as heart, liver, neuronal and pancreatic cells, iPSCs offer a source of new cells that can replace lost or damaged cells. For instance, iPSCs can be developed into beta islet cells, blood cells or neuronal cells for the treatment of diabetes, leukemia and neurological disorders, respectively. Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s & spinal cord injuries are key neurologic diseases expected to benefit from iPS research. Dramatic rise in cancer cases worldwide and the need for novel anti-cancer therapies will emerge as a key driver for the growth of iPSCs. Interest in cancer research soars high on new hopes of direct reprogramming of cancer cells with enforced expression of pluripotency factors and the resulting dedifferentiation of transformed cancer cells. The ongoing pandemic is also opening up new opportunities for Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) by offering a reliable model for researchers involved in studying how coronavirus indirectly or directly affects different cells in the human body. Made from a small sample of blood or skin cells, hiPSCs are robust stem cells that can be developed into any cell type and then infected with the coronavirus in order to analyse the disease prognosis and the resulting effects. By deploying hiPSCs, researchers have identified that stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) and blood vessels remain directly exposed to COVID-19 infection. Scientists identified that a significant portion of stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes ceased beating and expired within 3 days after being infected by coronavirus. Researchers can leverage the infected cardiomyocytes to screen for potential drug candidates that can restore their function and improve their survival; and also for identifying new antiviral drugs that potentially curtail coronavirus replication in the heart, reduce cardiac injury and curb the disease prognosis. Researchers can also utilize the infected cardiomyocytes to analyze COVID-induced myocarditis through addition of immune cells to their lab experiments.
