  Once-ailing firm gets boost from Medicare - The Boston Globe
Organogenesis Inc., a once-bankrupt biotech company that manufactures artificial skin, received good news for 2004: The government Medicare program nearly doubled what it will pay for its principal product, Apligraf, to $1,199 per treatment, from $680.
Organogenesis had its reimbursement rate slashed in 2003, and sales plummeted from 500 artificial skin patches a week to 250, executives said.
Organogenesis is hoping to turn a corner on a tough year.

 PRESS RELEASE Class Action Lawsuit Commenced on Behalf of Organogenesis Investors by Bernstein Liebhard & Lifshitz, LLP   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Organogenesis was not named as a defendant because it filed for bankruptcy protection in November of 2002.
Apligraf is described by Organogenesis as having a structure similar to human skin and as a "skin construct." The product's human skin-like properties allow this product to be used by doctors to aid in the healing of certain types of skin ulcers and other epidermal injuries.
Thus, Defendants lacked any reasonable basis to claim that Organogenesis was operating according to plan, that sufficient sources of funding were achieved and/or available to Organogenesis or that the Company could maintain profitability or even remain a viable entity in the foreseeable near-term.

 Stimulation of benzyladenine-induced in vitro shoot organogenesis in Cucumis melo L. by proline, salicylic acid and ...   (Site not responding. Last check: )
It was hypothesized that proline may be the preferred source of reductant to generate energy as well as supply NADP for purine synthesis during in vitro shoot organogenesis in C. melo.
Reduction of shoot organogenesis in response to thioproline, a known inhibitor of proline dehydrogenase, supported this hypothesis.
Shoot organogenesis was inhibited with no callus formation at higher levels (300-1000 micro M) of salicylic acid or aspirin with and without 10 mM proline.

In vertebrates, a special population of embryonic cells called the neural crest has been proposed as a "fourth germ layer", and is thought to have been an important novelty in the evolution of head structures.
During organogenesis molecular and cellular interactions between germ layers, combined with the cells' developmental potential or competence to respond, prompt the further differentiation of organ-specific cell types.
Modern developmental biology is extensively probing the molecular basis for every type of organogenesis, including angiogenesis (formation of blood vessels), chondrogenesis (cartilage), myogenesis (muscle), osteogenesis (bone), and many others.

The function of type XVIII collagen in developing lung, kidney and a recombination of ureteric bud and lung mesenchyme tissue and the function of the Wnt-2b gene during kidney organogenesis were studied by using the combined methods of traditional experimental embryology and modern molecular biology.
In the developing kidney, the shorter γ2* form was localized in the mesenchyme, whereas the longer γ2 form was only present in the epithelium of the Wolffian duct and in the ureteric bud, indicating different functions for the γ2 variants.
It becomed localized to the epithelial tips in the early-stage lung, while it was confined to the epithelial stalk region and was absent from the nearly formed ureteric tips in the kidney.

In vitro organogenesis of passion fruit was studied by the induction of adventitious buds from leaf discs in culture media supplemented with benzyladenine (BAP) or thidiazuron (TDZ).
After four weeks of culture on induction medium, direct organogenesis was observed with multiple shoot formations along the leaf disc cut edge.
Organogenesis did not occur in the absence of growth regulators, and both BAP and TDZ were effective in promoting adventitious buds development.

 Organogenesis Summary
In fact, most organogenesis has begun as early as week 5 in humans (remember that a normal human pregnancy lasts an average of 40 weeks).
This is because these tiny buds of tissue hold all the primitive cells which should differentiate into the myriad number of cells necessary to create all of the varied organs of the human body.
In animal development, organogenesis is the process by which the ectoderm, endoderm, and mesoderm develop into the internal organs of the organism.

Tissuegenesis and organogenesis are defined here as the formation of new tissues or organs to replace damaged or absent function.
Thus progenitor cell biology is a foundation for tissuegenesis and organogenesis.

Pregnancy Category C: Fluconazole was administered orally to pregnant rabbits during organogenesis in two studies, at 5, 10 and 20 mg/ kg and at 5, 25, and 75 mg/ kg, respectively.
In several studies in which pregnant rats were treated orally with fluconazole during organogenesis, maternal weight gain was impaired and placental weights were increased at 25 mg/ kg.
There were no fetal effects at 5 or 10 mg/ kg; increases in fetal anatomical variants (supernumerary ribs, renal pelvis dilation) and delays in ossification were observed at 25 and 50 mg/ kg and higher doses.

The mechanisms of amino acid influence on in vitro organogenesis are poorly understood, although it is common to use media supplemented with amino acids or hydrolyzed proteins to promote explant proliferation.
In the case of the melon (Cucumis melo), proline was the beneficial amino acid that stimulated in vitro shoot organogenesis from cotyledon explants (Milazzo et al., 1998).

A paper published in the December 1st issue of Genes & Development reveals a novel role for the p53 tumor suppressor pathway in organogenesis during embryonic development.

Peng explains that "based on all data obtained in our hands thus far, we believe the increase in p53 ispform in the def mutant contributes significantly (but not fully) to cause the hypoplasia digestive organs.
