Modeling NAFLD with human pluripotent stem cell derived immature hepatocyte like cells

Researchers have established an in vitro model system for investigating nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), also called steatosis, is a dramatically under-estimated liver disease, with increasing incidences throughout the world. It is frequently associated with obesity and type-2 diabetes.

Stem Cell Treatment for Lou Gehrig's Disease May Be Safe

A phase II clinical trial in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease, suggests that transplanting human stem cells into the spinal cord may be done safely. The research is published in the June 29, 2016, online issue of Neurology(r), the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. Show More Summary

Angels' pitchers trying stem cell treatment instead of Tommy John surgery

Twice now, doctors have performed an ultrasound on Andrew Heaney’s arm, squirting in a gel, writhing it around, taking pictures, and then showing him the images on a screen.  He doesn’t entirely understand what he sees, but it’s enough to inspire hope in the 25-year-old Angels pitcher. The ulnar...

New way out: Researchers show how stem cells exit bloodstream

Therapeutic stem cells exit the bloodstream in a different manner than was previously thought, new research shows. This process, dubbed angiopellosis by the researchers, has implications for improving our understanding of not only intravenous stem cell therapies, but also metastatic cancers.

Non-healing tissue from diabetic foot ulcers reprogrammed as pluripotent stem cells

Researchers have established for the first time that skin cells from diabetic foot ulcers can be reprogrammed to acquire properties of embryonic-like cells.

New Way Out: Researchers Show How Stem Cells Exit Bloodstream

Non-Healing Tissue From Diabetic Foot Ulcers Reprogrammed as Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts, led by Jonathan Garlick, have established for the first time that skin cells from diabetic foot ulcers can be reprogrammed to acquire properties of embryonic-like cells.

In the Loop: Using Stem Cells to Try and Heal Baby Lucas’ Heart

This story originally appeared on the In the Loop blog. ____________________ Last July, Jennifer Gutman told Toledo, Ohio’s 13abc Action News that the day doctors diagnosed her unborn son, Lucas, with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, also known as HLHS, was “the worst day of her life.” The diagnosis came during what Jennifer and her husband, Brian, thought would […]

New method to grow and transplant muscle stem cells holds promise for treatment of muscular dystrophy

Satellite cells are stem cells found in skeletal muscles. While transplantation of such muscle stem cells can be a potent therapy for degenerative muscle diseases such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, these cells tend to lose their transplantation efficiency when cultured in vitro.

Journalists: 9 tips to combat stem cell hype in your news stories

Joy Victory is deputy managing editor of HealthNewsReview.org. She tweets as @thejoyvictory. At this moment, only a handful of stem cell therapies have been proven safe and effective through clinical research, according to the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR). Show More Summary

Starving stem cells may enable scientists to build better blood vessels

Researchers have uncovered how changes in metabolism of human embryonic stem cells help coax them to mature into specific cell types -- and may improve their function in engineered organs or tissues, report researchers.

A Cautionary Tale of ‘Stem Cell Tourism’

A CAUTIONARY TALE OF Stem Cell Tourism. If I were desperate enough, I might try some of these offerings, but a lot of them are quackdom from quacks.

Lasers carve the path to tissue engineering

Future medicine is bound to include extensive tissue-engineering technologies such as organs-on-chips and organoids - miniature organs grown from stem cells. But all this is predicated on a simple yet challenging task: controlling cellular behavior in three dimensions. Show More Summary

A new bio-ink for 3-D printing with stem cells

Starving Stem Cells May Enable Scientists to Build Better Blood Vessels

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine have uncovered how changes in metabolism of human embryonic stem cells help coax them to mature into specific cell types -- and may improve their function in engineered organs or tissues.

A Cautionary Tale of ‘Stem Cell Tourism’

Desperate patients are turning to therapy at unregulated clinics overseas that say they can treat many diseases. But one man experienced tragic consequences.

Stem cell doc faces manslaughter charge over transplants

Disgraced scientist, once considered pioneer in regenerative medicine who led operations in U.S., accused of lying to patients

Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation Offers Safe and Effective, and Potentially Curative, Option for Patients with HIV-Associated Lymphoma

Multicenter, phase II trial suggests autologous transplant should be standard of care for HIV patients with relapsed/treatment-resistant lymphoma.
