As part of our continuing review of the stem cells marketplace, we have sought to analyze and categorize the publications in the broad stem cell field in order to better understand relationships between specific stem cell classes and selected disease classes.
This methodology represents one metric by which the large and amorphous field of stem cell research can be analyzed. The method presented is just one part of our comprehensive coverage of this space, which uses various different metrics that en bloc allow us to closely follow a given market space.
From the PubMed database, we retrieved 144,317 unique publications with stem cell in the title or abstract of the publication. We subsequently binned these publications into stem cell classes based on the presence of specific stem cell descriptors. The Table presents this binning.
