Cloning advance using stem cells from human adult reopens ethical questions

4 hours agoHealth : The Checkup

Scientists have grown stem cells from adults using cloning techniques for the first time — bringing them closer to developing patient-specific lines of cells that can be used to treat a whole host of ailments, from heart disease to blindness. Read full article >>

Researchers Clone Cells From Two Adult Men

This is a step toward being able to regenerate replacements for diseased or damaged cells. In this case, cells from a 35-year-old man and a 75-year-old man were used to generate two separate lines of stem cells. The process, known as nuclear transfer, involves taking the DNA from a donor and inserting it into an […]

Proper stem cell function requires hydrogen sulfide

Stem cells in bone marrow need to produce hydrogen sulfide in order to properly multiply and form bone tissue, according to a new study. Researchers demonstrated that mice's osteoporosis-like condition could be rescued by administering small molecules that release hydrogen sulfide inside the body. Show More Summary

Scientists Clone Stem Cells From Adults For The First Time

This comes a year after researchers created the first early-stage human clones derived from infant and fetal cells. For the first time, scientists have created early-stage embryos using cloned cells from adults. Read Full Story

Scientists create stem cells from adults in cloning first

Scientists have moved a step closer to the goal of creating stem cells perfectly matched to a patient's DNA in order to treat diseases, they announced on Thursday, creating patient-specific cell lines out of the skin cells of two adult men.

Surprise: Lost stem cells naturally replaced by non-stem cells, fly research suggests

Johns Hopkins researchers have discovered an unexpected phenomenon in the organs that produce sperm in fruit flies: When a certain kind of stem cell is killed off experimentally, another group of non-stem cells can come out of retirement to replace them. read more

Proper stem cell function requires hydrogen sulfide

Stem cells in bone marrow need to produce hydrogen sulfide in order to properly multiply and form bone tissue, according to a new study from the Center for Craniofacial Molecular Biology at the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC. Professor...Show More Summary

New trial may be step forward for spinal cord injuries

yesterdayHealth : The Chart

In what may be another step forward in treating spinal cord injuries, a safety trial will begin this year on the practice of injecting stem cells directly into the injury site, Neuralstem Inc. announced Wednesday.  The Maryland company said the University of California, San Diego's Institutional Review Board had approved its clinical trial protocol, which also […]

Regenerated esophagus transplanted in rats

Tissue engineering has been used to construct natural esophagi, which in combination with bone marrow stem cells have been safely and effectively transplanted in rats. The study shows that the transplanted organs remain patent and display regeneration of nerves, muscles, epithelial cells and blood vessels.

UCI study finds modified stem cells offer potential pathway to treat Alzheimer's disease

April 15, 2014, Irvine, Calif. — UC Irvine neurobiologists have found that genetically modified neural stem cells show positive results when transplanted into the brains of mice with the symptoms and pathology of Alzheimer's disease....Show More Summary

Researchers transplant regenerated esophagus

Tissue engineering has been used to construct natural oesophagi, which in combination with bone marrow stem cells have been safely and effectively transplanted in rats. The study, published in Nature Communications, shows that the transplanted organs remain patent and display regeneration of nerves, muscles, epithelial cells and blood vessels. read more

Artificial Blood & Wound-Closing Sponges

The artificial blood cells are made from adult skin or blood cells which have been hacked to become pluripotent stem cells. They're going to begin human trials in 2016, injecting the artificial blood into patients. They'll be making type O...

Scientists give stem cells a performance boost ... by putting them on steroids

3 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Stem cells are highly promising for the treatment of everything from HIV to leukemia to baldness. In many cases, however, a great number of them must be used in order have a noticeable effect, which makes treatments impractical or expensive. Show More Summary

Soon We May Be Mass Producing Human Blood

3 days agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

Researchers in the UK have developed a technique to culture universal type-O blood from stem cells. It's the first time scientists have manufactured blood to the appropriate quality and safety standards for transfusion into a human being. It's a breakthrough that could eventually lead to the mass production of blood. Read more...

Artificial Blood Could Be Used In Transfusions

Scientists at the University of Edenburgh  are testing artificial blood that could one day be used in transfusions. The process involves using adult skin or blood cells that have been genetically modified into stem cells, known as induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. These iPS cells are then cultured in biologic conditions that mimic the human […]

How a Silly Putty ingredient could advance stem cell therapies

ANN ARBOR—The sponginess of the environment where human embryonic stem cells are growing affects the type of specialized cells they eventually become, a University of Michigan study shows. The researchers coaxed human embryonic stemShow More Summary

Lab-Grown Vaginas

A team of scientists has successfully implanted lady-parts cultivated from stem cells into four women born without them: The women, who were between 13 and 18 at the time of the surgery, were all born with a rare genetic condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) — a condition that causes about one in 4,500 girls to be born with either […]
