  • BioEdge: Last act in stem cell research tragedy
    RIKEN itself may be radically reformed In a contrite editorial Nature insists that fundamentally it was not to blame for the debacle which has placed the whole field of stem cell research under a cloud We have concluded that we and the referees could not have detected the problems that fatally undermined the papers The referees rigorous reports quite rightly took on trust what was presented in the papers As for the future Nature is drafting new protocols for assessing submissions although editors and referees could not have detected the fatal faults in this work the episode has further highlighted flaws in Nature s procedures and in the procedures of institutions that publish with us We research funders research practitioners institutions and journals need to put quality assurance and laboratory professionalism ever higher on our agendas to ensure that the money entrusted by governments is not squandered and that citizens trust in science is not betrayed MORE ON THESE TOPICS Nature research misconduct retractions stem cells This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If

  • BioEdge: Japanese stem cell researcher agrees to retract one of her papers
    author Charles Vacanti of Brigham and Women s Hospital in Boston The paper which Obokata refuses to retract is the main one in which it was claimed that putting cells under stress by bathing them in acid of subjecting them to physical pressure leads to the creation of pluripotent stem cells The other paper claims that these cells can produce placental tissue To Obokata the paper that made clear the existence of STAP is the important one The other which she has agreed to retract is nothing more than an extension says her lawyer The papers came under fire after several researchers were unable to replicate her findings and manipulated and duplicated images were found in them The RIKEN research institute found her guilty of scientific misconduct although Dr Obokata insists that her mistake were the result of inexperience not fraud MORE ON THESE TOPICS scientific misconduct stem cells This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a university we ask that your department make a donation Commercial media must contact

  • BioEdge: Japanese stem cell researcher denied appeal
    cells was astonishingly simple just bathing them in acid or putting them under pressure But efforts to replicate her results failed and critics zeroed in on flaws in the data Ms Obokata still insists that her paper is valid and that her errors were innocent In another twist to the sadly familiar sight of a stem cell scientist caught manipulating data the waves from the splash of Icarus are rocking other boats Four of the six members of RIKEN s investigating committee have been also accused of irregularities in their own research On 25 April 25 the head of the investigation committee Shunsuke Ishii who had declared that I have never experienced this kind of carelessness among junior researchers resigned after manipulated images from two of his own papers were posted on the internet by a whistleblower On April 30 Haruhiko Koseki and Yoichi Shinkai both of RIKEN were accused of data manipulation in some of their papers by a whistleblower On the same day the Asahi Shimbun detected irregularities in some images created by Tetsuya Taga the vice president of Tokyo Medical and Dental University He was cleared after a day long investigation Not even 2012 Nobel Prize laureate Shinya Yamanaka has escaped collateral damage after Ms Obokata s fall from grace On April 28 he was forced to deny that he had manipulated images in a paper published in 2000 In the wake of these allegations RIKEN President Ryoji Noyori has ordered staff to check all publications for doctored data which could amount to as many as 20 000 papers MORE ON THESE TOPICS academic misconduct stem cells This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes

  • BioEdge: Stem cell company becomes political bombshell in Italy
    overheated rhetoric has characterised a national debate about Stamina Last week Turin prosecutor Raffaele Guariniello lodged a 69 page report with a court alleging that Vannoni and 19 of his staff have been exploiting desperate patients Stamina s methods he alleged were unsafe unethical illegal and cynical The indictment backed up the opinion of the medical profession which regards Vannoni as a dangerous quack Vannoni on the other hand who is not a doctor insists that his company deserves a Nobel Prize According to Science Insider The report says Vannoni had a well developed strategy that aimed to bypass the law on stem cell therapies take the treatment to public hospitals get the Italian government to pay for it and expand the business around the world In addition he actively pushed patients to go to court to claim the right to be treated Many of Stamina s patients support him to the hilt and are desperate for his treatments to continue Last year the Italian Parliament voted to fund clinical trials for the Stamina method The Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin who is under great political pressure appears to favour it According to Science Insider Amedeo Santosuosso of the University of Pavia who has investigated Stamina has called for an abrupt end to the debate At this point the minister should have the moral and political strength to take the right decision and put to a definitive end the whole story This is one of the darkest chapters in the history of medicine of this country MORE ON THESE TOPICS Italy stem cells This article is published by Michael Cook and BioEdge under a Creative Commons licence You may republish it or translate it free of charge with attribution for non commercial purposes following these guidelines If you teach at a
