Standardization in production is key in opening up the commercialization possibilities of late stage clinical trials. I believe that the industry now knows this and as iPS cells are a fairly recent discovery I am optimistic about the commercialization potential of iPS cells.

It is really exciting to watch regenerative medicine become a reality. As production of cellular therapies shifts from the academic laboratories to industry, there remain issues to be solved around potency assays, characterization and scale up of manufacturing processes. However, I am confident that these issues will be solved and we will be able to rely more heavily on harvesting cells rather than organs as Dr. Lim hopes.
