Recently the question was raised whether anybody ever had encountered a negative scientific -peer reviewed- study involving Cytori´s processing device Celution, which had been-as written- unfavorable i.e. negative in its conclusions.
In order to be able to give a substantiated answer to this question, one really has to know first which scientific- peer reviewed- papers do exist on the subject, so since I have been rather involved with the art of interrogating databases, I did so with the pretty substantial- and complete PubMed database. Off late the DB has been returning more and more publications from Private Investigator clinics and it is very likely that the funnel of these investigations has been growing and growing and beats the quality of Cytori´s past own investigations by many many miles. But also, that funnel will also "spit out" more results in the near future- Cugat -as an example- is expected any day now with his ACL results.
So- it starts to be interesting to put FOCUS on what is being issued in the various scientific journals of the globe, in order to be able to glimps at Cytori´s platform future.
In order to do so- glimpsing on what is ongoing- I did a query on the PubMed database with the search parameter " Celution" at present- end July 2016- 19 positives are returned, which you will find listed below. Going forward the list will stop at 20....but will start with the latest published article and will delete the eldest.
To answer that question- yes, there is one. A study from Finland I believe, where the investigators used "water assisted liposuction" for their scientific comparison with manual extraction of supercharged fat in reconstruction. All I recall is, that I inquired in Finland, why the hell they did this study with this lipo device. The PI answered me that he did the study, since he was a friend of Adam Katz- Co-founder of StemSource. For insiders, this is all explanatory...

Stem cells are increasingly being used in the course of burn treatment. As several different types of stem cells are available for the purposes, it is important to chose the most efficient and the most practicable stem cell type. The aim of this study was to compare the potential of heterogeneous amnion cell mixture with the presently used standard therapy, the adipose tissue-derived stem cells. The placenta was collected during a Cesarean section procedure. Adipose tissue tissue-derived cells were isolated using the Cytori's Celution® System. Cells were tested for fulfillment of the minimum criteria for stem cells. The efficiency of cell cultures was tested by an analysis of population doubling, cell proliferation, cell cycle and cell migration. Amniotic cells presented a higher ability for differentiation to chondrocytes and osteocytes than adipose-derived regenerative cells but a lower ability for differentiation toward adipocytes. Additionally, in vitro experiments have demonstrated a higher applicability of amniotic cells than adipose tissue-derived stem cells. Amniotic cells show several advantages: easy access to placenta, low costs and a lack of ethical dilemmas related to stem cell harvesting. The main disadvantage is, however, their availability, as isogenic treatment would only be possible for women around children-bearing age, unless personalized banks for amniotic cells would be established.
