Generation of induced pluripotent stem cell lines from peripheral blood mononuclear cells of three drug resistant and three drug responsive epilepsy patients

Summary

Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by seizures. Unfortunately, 30-40% of all epilepsy patients are resistant to at least two or more anti-seizure medications. Attempts to treat these patients and prevent further seizures necessitates multiple drug trials for the patient. Here we describe the generation and validation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from 3 drug responsive and 3 drug resistant patients, using a non-integrative Sendai virus vector. These lines can be used to generate 2D and 3D patient-specific human cellular models that will enable personalised drug screening and pharmacogenomic studies. Copyright © 2021.
