Stem cell treatment will soon be tested on eight residents of Tatarstan
Stem cell treatment will soon be tested on eight residents of Tatarstan, a Russian republic on the Volga River, a local health official said Wednesday. "The experiment will be conducted before the end of the year," Anas Gilmanov, the first deputy health minister of Tatarstan, said. "The test will be performed on eight volunteers who suffer from liver and blood vessel problems." He added that cell therapy was a priority for Tartarstan's health ministry and that the republic's budget would earmark 1 million rubles ($34,700) for the project. According to Gilmanov, the tests will continue into 2006. Alexei Sozinov, the head of the ethics committee for the republic's health ministry, said only the republic's Stem Cell Bank was licensed to use the new cell technologies, but under strict control. The bank, set up in March as part of the Medical University of Kazan, the republic's capital, received the federal license in November. The university is the first medical institute and the second government institution in Russia to receive such a license.
