To Fight Nasty Digestive Bugs, Scientists Set Out to Build a Better Gut - Using Stem Cells

If you've ever been hit with an 'intestinal bug', you've felt the effects of infectious microbes on your digestive system. But scientists don't fully understand what's going on in gut infections like that - or in far more serious ones. Now, a team of scientists will tackle that issue in a new way.

New transitional stem cells discovered

In an effort to grow placenta cells to better study the causes of pre-eclampsia, researchers serendipitously discovered a previously unknown form of human embryonic stem cell.

Medical News Today: Treatment that slows AMD vision loss with one stem cell injection shows promise

Researchers are optimistic that a stem cell treatment they successfully tested in rats will slow or reverse the effects of early-stage age-related macular degeneration in humans.

Man with Restored Sight Provides New Insight Into How Vision Develops

Fifteen years after California entrepreneur and downhill ski champion Mike May underwent a pioneering stem cell procedure, researchers investigate how functional his vision is. "With sight-restoration procedures becoming more developed,...Show More Summary

Stem Cell Therapy Slows the Onset of Macular Degeneration

4 days agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Age-related macular degeneration has a fairly direct relationship to the accumulation of a mix of metabolic wastes called lipofuscin in long-lived retinal cells. There are other contributing causes, but that is an important one. Cell...Show More Summary

Researchers find new gene involved in blood-forming stem cells

A gene critical to controlling the body's ability to create blood cells and immune cells from blood-forming stem cells -- known as hematopoietic stem cells -- has been discovered by researchers. Along with helping scientists better understand...Show More Summary

Stem Cell Injection May Soon Reverse Vision Loss Caused By Age-Related Macular Degeneration

An injection of stem cells into the eye may soon slow or reverse the effects of early-stage age-related macular degeneration, according to new research from scientists at Cedars-Sinai. Currently, there is no treatment that slows the progression of the disease, which is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 65.

U-M Researchers Find New Gene Involved in Blood-Forming Stem Cells

Research led by the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute has identified a gene critical to controlling the body's ability to create blood cells and immune cells from blood-forming stem cells--known as hematopoietic stem ce...

Gene therapy superior to half-matched transplant for 'bubble boy disease'

Children with 'bubble boy disease' who undergo gene therapy have fewer infections and hospitalizations than those receiving stem cells from a partially matched donor, new research suggests. Children with SCID-X1 are born with a genetic defect that prevents them from developing a normal immune system. Show More Summary

Researchers Identify Drug Target for ATRA, the First Precision Cancer Therapy

Cancerous tumors have the ability to evade targeted therapies by activating alternative pathways. Tumors also contain cancer stem cells, believed responsible for metastasis and drug resistance. Now scientists in the Cancer Research Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have identified a drug target that addresses both of these challenges.

Gene therapy better than half-matched transplant for 'Bubble Boy disease'

New research reports that children with "bubble boy disease" who undergo gene therapy have fewer infections and hospitalizations than those receiving stem cells from a partially matched donor. The research is the first to compare outcomes...Show More Summary

Bonus Friday Cat Blogging - 10 April 2015

Quick health update: the stem cell collection went swimmingly this week. We now have loads and loads of fresh stem cells frozen and waiting for me when I go back for the final stage of chemotherapy. I got home yesterday, and at the moment...Show More Summary

Breast tissue provides clues to avoid effects of aging

Our tissue's inability to repair itself as we grow older is thought to correlate with the decline in the presence of stem cells. So it follows that if stem cell function can be preserved beyond the norm, it could have implications for the aging process and adverse effects of tissue degeneration, such as cancer.

Medical News Today: Amniotic stem cells boost blood vessel growth in hydrogel therapy

Scientists show mice injected with healing hydrogel made of fibrin and amniotic stem cells grow more robust networks of blood vessels than those injected with fibrin-only hydrogel.

Stem Cell Transplantation Suppresses Cellular Senescence in Aging Rat Hearts

last weekHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

The usual model for presently available stem cell therapies is for stem cells to be taken from the patient, often from bone marrow, greatly expanded in number, and reintroduced into target tissues. This has been shown over the past decade...Show More Summary

Stem Cell Disease Model Clarifies Bone Cancer Trigger

Using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a team led by Mount Sinai researchers has gained new insight into genetic changes that may turn a well known anti-cancer signaling gene into a driver of risk for bone cancers.

Amniotic stem cells demonstrate healing potential

Scientists use stem cells derived from amniotic fluid to promote the growth of robust, functional blood vessels in healing hydrogels. The researchers combined versatile amniotic stem cells with injectable hydrogels used as scaffolds in regenerative medicine and proved they enhance the development of vessels needed to bring blood to new tissue and carry waste products away.

Loss of TIMP1 and TIMP3 Maintains Youthful Stem Cell Activity in Aging Mice

last weekHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Stem cell activity declines with age, an evolutionary trade-off that reduces the risk of death by cancer at the cost of increasing frailty and a slower death due to failure of tissue maintenance. This is just one of the many contributing factors that together determine the present human life span and the course of failing health for most people. Show More Summary
