Com). The Regeneus Animal Health technique differs in that they are able to offer on-site processing, conducted now in around 45 minutes. Regeneus Animal Health’s Adicell product has been mostly used for the treatment of dogs and horses and some cats, including a snow leopard at the local zoo. Unlike VetStem, whose focus is primarily on animals, Regeneus Animal Health has plans for developing the same treatment for humans, with a clinical trial currently underway in Sydney. 4 The limits of commercialization in the stem cell sciences While the above list suggests a potentially unlimited commercial possibility for stem cell products, there are two core limitations that set the outer limits.

This has made the option of relocating elsewhere for treatments like cosmetic surgery and other kinds of non-urgent healthcare and dentistry, potentially combined with some more traditional tourist Published by Woodhead Publishing Limited, 2012 26 Commercializing the stem cell sciences activities like sightseeing and relaxation, seem increasingly desirable (Connell, 2006). Add to this a complex array of regulations governing some biomedical treatments, like fertility services for example, and another layer of motivation to travel overseas to obtain services unavailable at home is driving the emergence of a global healthcare market (Spar, 2005).

Moreover, the costs of new drug development are high because of the large numbers of drug candidates that do not pass the pre-clinical phase and the complexity and length of the clinical trial phase of testing for regulatory approval (Grabowski, 2002). One study has shown that the costs of developing a generic drug can be as low as half that of the original costs of drug development (Grabowski, 2002). Crucially, though, an important factor in a competitive pharmaceutical industry is the capacity of patients to buy drugs.
