Osaka Medical University's former instructor does not deliver regenerative medicine or police searches the laboratory etc. October 25 14:18
While the former lecturer at Osaka Medical University was in office, I found out that the police were searching for a university, etc., assuming that regenerative medicine that administers cultured cells to humans was conducted without the necessary notification. A university survey shows that cells were collected from other sources, and the police are investigating the details.
According to the police, a 52-year-old former male lecturer at Osaka Medical University in Takatsuki City, Osaka, is currently in office, and in a laboratory in the university, it is the source of various organizations such as fat and muscle from women. It means that “stem cells” were collected, cultured, and administered to women.
For regenerative medicine, it is obliged to submit a plan to the country to ensure safety, but the former instructor did not follow these procedures.
Although no health damage has been confirmed in women, the police who received information from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare last month suspected a violation of the Regenerative Medicine Safety Assurance Law and visited a university laboratory or home used by a former lecturer. I searched.
Regarding regenerative medicine, it is said that it is effective for preventing aging, etc., and a series of treatments for which safety and effectiveness have not been established, so the Regenerative Medicine Safety Assurance Law was enforced in 2014 and its operation was tightened. It was.
As a result of the university's investigation, it was found that the former instructor was collecting 4 other cells without delivery, and was dismissed in August, and the police are investigating the details. .
Osaka Medical University "cooperating with investigation"
According to Osaka Medical University, a whistle-blowing report was received in May saying that regenerative medicine is being conducted without the necessary notification on campus.
For this reason, the university side confirmed the facts with the former lecturer who was working at the time, reported the situation to the Kinki Health and Welfare Bureau in June, and conducted an on-site inspection by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in August.
In mid-August, the university decided to dismiss the punishment for improper regenerative medical practice without going through legal procedures.
In previous university surveys, five people were targeted for regenerative medicine, and they were not general patients but were all researchers.
In response to the survey, the former instructor explained that his colleagues said, “I couldn't decline because I asked my friend to do it for anti-aging”.
The university commented, “The police are investigating and will cooperate with the investigation. The university will make every possible effort to prevent such actions from occurring again in the future.”
