Iran unveils first stem cell product

The first Iranian stem cell product was unveiled with the attendance of Iran’s Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi on Sunday.

The product is based on stem cell technology that has been first produced by injecting fibroplast stem cells in Iran, IRNA reported.

It is used in the treatment of chronic ulcers, diabetic wounds, acne scars and skin rejuvenation.

The product has been made by dermatology and stem cell research center of Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Barakat Foundation and Royan Institute.

Iran’s stem cell research is centered at the Royan Institute for Reproductive Biomedicine, Stem Cell Biology and Technology, located in northern Tehran.

Iran is expanding investment in stem cell research and its application in various therapies, particularly for hard-to-treat diseases, through the Office of the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology.

As a result of the increase in the number of companies active in the domain of stem cells in the past three years, more than 400 products are processed in the country.
