Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Mulls Acquisitions

Sysmex Corporation, Healios K.K. and Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Co., Ltd. Begin Joint R&D Related to Pre-Transplant Immune Reaction Testing Method for Retinal Pigment Epithelial Cells (RPE Cells) Derived from Allogeneic iPS Cells

Sysmex Corporation, HEALIOS K.K. and Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Co., Ltd. announced that the three companies have begun pursuing joint research and development toward the establishment of a pre-transplant immune reaction testing method for retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE cells) derived from allogeneic induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. iPS cell transplantation therapy is divided into two methods: autologous transplantation, where cells produced from iPS cells derived from a patient's own body, and allogeneic transplantation, which uses cells produced from iPS cells derived from a donor who meets certain criteria (allogeneic iPS cells). Autologous transplantation already has a track record of use in therapy, but involves a number of issues. This method requires producing iPS cells from a patient's own cells and then inducing cellular differentiation suitable for transplantation therapy. Producing cells for transplant requires time and the production costs are substantial. The method of allogeneic transplantation, on the other hand, may have the potential to provide cells with assured quality for transplantation therapy timely, stably and inexpensively, because allogeneic iPS cells are stored and managed in cell banks, and cells for transplant are produced systematically in standardized processes. However, since allogenic transplantation, --the treatment method using cells derived from allogeneic iPS cells-- may induce post-transplant immunorejection, it is necessary to develop a new testing method to confirm prior to transplantation whether cells are suitable for transplant, including the possibility to cause immunorejection.
