To what degree does random mutation in nuclear DNA contribute to aging over the present human life span? The present consensus is that this is a cause of disarray in metabolic processes, and that it does reach a significant level of consequence for tissue function. Show More Summary
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is approved for use in treating some types of cancer and is an experimental treatment for autoimmune diseases.
(McMaster University) The drugs helped to understand the biology. The researchers worked backwards, employing a series of drugs used in the clinic to understand a new way that cancer stem cells can be killed.
(Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center) Scientists used human pluripotent stem cells to generate human embryonic colons in a laboratory that function much like natural human tissues when transplanted into mice, according to research published June 22 in Cell Stem Cell. Show More Summary
Researchers worked backwards, employing a series of drugs used in the clinic to understand a new way that cancer stem cells can be killed.
DNA of 234-year-old tree has few mutations, giving weight to idea that plants protect their stem cells.
A discovery, described in a recent study by researchers at Beaumont Health, revealed ACL tears send a signal to stem cells throughout our body. This could lead to future breakthroughs to enable stem cells to repair injuries and reduce development of conditions like osteoarthritis.
Today, tracking the development of individual cells and spotting the associated factors under the microscope is nothing unusual. However, impairments like shadows or changes in the background complicate the interpretation of data. Now,...Show More Summary

(Monell Chemical Senses Center) A new study from the Monell Center and collaborating institutions advances understanding of how stem cells on the tongue grow into the different types of mature taste cells that detect either sweet, salty, sour, bitter, or umami. Show More Summary
A new study examines the effect of grape compounds in mice and human cells. The compounds suppress cancer stem cells, which may drive cancerous tumors.
BlueRock Therapeutics is a regenerative-medicine startup. Headquartered in Boston, its two lead programs are based in Toronto and New York City. Its approach is to develop stem cells that transform into specific adult cells that canShow More Summary
(Penn State) Compounds from grapes may kill colon cancer stem cells both in a petri dish and in mice, according to a team of researchers.
At present, the only FDA approved method of treating glaucoma is to lower eye pressure; this slows the progression of glaucomatous optic nerve damage but does not completely halt it, and certainly does not regenerate damaged nerve tissue.
For heart failure patients, research suggests that using cardiac stem cells for autologous stem cell therapy may exacerbate heart tissue damage.
(University of Basel) Stem cells persist in the adult mammalian brain and generate new neurons throughout life. A research group at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel reports in the current issue of 'Science' that long-distance...Show More Summary
Scientists discover that three-dimensional liver buds grown in a dish from stem cells mimic the molecular signatures observed during the natural development of human liver
And helping to prevent a relapse.
Republican Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) today joined with Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-03) to introduce a bipartisan bill to direct the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to prioritize life-affirming stem cell research with near-term benefits for human patients and to refrain from creating or destroying human […]
Two months ago, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey had a stem cell procedure on the injured hip that caused him to miss most of the 2016 season. Now the Dolphins say Pouncey is making progress. Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Pouncey is “really improving,” although Gase didn’t say Pouncey will be back in time for the…
