RMIG-2-INDIA NEWS: Dr. P. Kumar Gupta visits TRM, University of Leipzig & BCRT, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin
October 29th - October 31st, 2009
 

Dr. Pawan Kumar Gupta, Dean of Manipal Institute of Regenerative Medicine Bangalore gave a presentation of new therapeutic approaches by using human mesenchymal stem cells in the area of neurological diseases at the World Congress on Regenerative Medicine – WCRM – in Leipzig.

The WCRM took place for the fourth time from October 29th to October 31st, 2009. and is organized by the TRM/University of Leipzig and the Fraunhofer IZI.

On invitation of Prof. Tarnok (TRM/Univ of Leipzig) and Joeri Borstlap (Cooridnator/BCRT@Charité), Dr. Gupta visited both research clusters. MIRM is looking for a location to open a branch in Europe.

Besides Dr. Gupta had the opportunity to learn about ongoing research projects, facilities and collaboration interests in Leipzig and Berlin. At the BCRT he gave a lecture on the latest clinical applications of stem cell therapies conducted by MIRM and stempeutics.

How to reimburse innovations in Regenerative Medicine?
- German Centers of Regenerative Medicine -
15.10.2009, 11.00 - 12.30 Uhr
Charité Campus Mitte, Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, Raum „Koch“, 10115 Berlin

Abstract
Regenerative Medicine explores new therapeutic options aiming at a causal approach to diseases and has an impact on current healthcare systems. The aim of this workshop is to indicate new possibilities for the efficient translation of innovations into clinical daily routine in the field of Regenerative Medicine. More

To warrant the cost effectiveness of advanced therapies it is important to evaluate the whole pathway of treatment incl. long term outcome. Results of health economic analyses can support strategy-setting about further development including go/no go decisions and clinical trial design.
It is therefore necessary to timely analyze these effects including reimbursement issues in order to assess the cost effectiveness starting at an early phase of time and cost intensive development.
The following questions will be discussed at the workshop:

  1. How to reasonably define cost effectiveness and potency of regenerative therapies? Are there therapy specific regulations?
  2. In which ways are innovative therapies reimbursed in other countries? What can we learn from them?
  3. How far will our aging society go to pay for regeneration or healing and what are we “able” to pay?

RMIG-2-INDIA NEWS: RMIG-2-India Kicks-off at Bangalore Bio
June 2009
 

On invitation of the BMBF the RMIG attended the Bangalore Bio 2009 at the German Pavilion between 18.-20. June 2009. Beside the participation at the biotechnology fair the RMIG delegation took the opportunity to follow up meetings of contacts and to explore opportunities regarding future collaborations in the field of research and development – with a focus on Bangalore and Hyderabad. Due to the excellent scientific infrastructure – IISc, NCBS; JNCASR etc. – in Bangalore as well as in Hyderabad first ideas of joint research projects.

The participation at one of Indias´ biggest Biotech-Fairs had been a good choice to meet representatives of science and industry to discuss the potential of projects in research as well as translation of new therapeutics approaches. Bangalore with its outstanding and internationally recognized research institutions and promising companies in the field of cell therapies, biotech and bioinformatics is beside Hyderabad one of the most vibrant spots for RegMed in India.

Prof. Attila Tárnok, from the Translational Centre for Regenerative Medicine (TRM), Leipzig, who followed the invitation of the RMIG-office, is convinced regarding the potential of Indo-German collaborations:
“As our individual meetings made clear, there is a distinct interest in bilateral cooperation in the field of basic research as well as in the area of product development. For several years I have followed the developments in India with as specific focus on cytometry and those areas are emerging.”

And Joeri Borstlap, Co-ordinator of the RMIG and BCRT, Berlin, adds: „We are convinced that at the end of this project some collaboration projects will be set into motion. We also see the need to be present regularly to follow up contacts, to provide assistance in funding and preparation of proposals and project as well as knowledge management.“
