After all these years, why can’t the media report even basic embryonic stem cell issues accurately? For years, we have been told by the media that federal funding of embryonic stem cell research was somehow “banned.” Pure. Baloney. Now,...Show More Summary
An injection of a patient's bone marrow stem cells during rotator cuff surgery significantly improved healing and tendon durability, according to a new study.
Scientists have developed a blood test using human stem cells that predicts whether new drugs will cause severe side effects. The test, which only requires blood from a single donor, could help prevent catastrophic inflammatory reactions known as a cytokine storm in people participating in drug trials. .. Show More Summary
Findings Shed Light on the Development of Blood Cancers
Researchers at the University of Cambridge have grown functional "mini-lungs" using stems cells derived from the skin cells of patients with a debilitating lung disease. Not only can the development help them in coming up with effective...Show More Summary
Scientists from the University of Michigan have grown the first 3D mini lungs from stem cells. The study, published in eLife, compliments other developments in the field such as growing mainly 2D structures and building lung tissue from...Show More Summary
Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) transplantation reduced opioid tolerance and opioid-induced hyperalgesia caused by daily morphine injections in rats, according to new research.
Scientists have coaxed stem cells to grow the first three-dimensional mini lungs. The 3D structures mimic the complexity of human lungs and may serve as a discovery tool for lung diseases or new therapies.
Scientists at the University of Michigan Health System have coaxed stem cells to grow the first three-dimensional mini lungs. The 3D structures mimic the complexity of human lungs and may serve as a discovery tool for lung diseases or new therapies.
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a particular enzyme in blood stem cells that is key to maintaining healthy periods of cell inactivity; if these cells become too active and divide too often, they risk acquiring cell damage and mutations.
Scientists at the University of Cambridge have successfully created 'mini-lungs' using stem cells derived from skin cells of patients with cystic fibrosis, and have shown that these can be used to test potential new drugs for this debilitating lung disease. read more
A new molecular pathway critical to aging has been discovered by scientists. They found that by slowing down the activity of mitochondria in the blood stem cells of mice, they could enhance the cells' capacity to handle stress and rejuvenate old blood.
There is comparatively little study of sirtuin 7 (SIRT7) in comparison to the better known and greatly overhyped sirtuin 1 (SIRT1). All members of the sirtuin family have broad influence over a range of fundamental cellular processes,...Show More Summary
Using stem cells derived from patients' skin cells, scientists have made organoids of airway lung tissue that should be more reliable than mice for cystic fibrosis research.
Brentuximab vedotin proved effective in stopping disease progression in patients with hard-to-treat Hodgkin lymphoma when administered straight after stem cell transplantation.
Stem cells can have a strong sense of identity. Taken out of their home in the hair follicle, for example, and grown in culture, these cells remain true to themselves. After waiting in limbo, these cultured cells become capable of regenerating follicles and other skin structures once transplanted back into skin. Show More Summary
Researchers have developed a new technology to determine sensitivity or resistance to rabies virus.
A combination of human stem cell transplantation and antidiabetic drugs proved to be highly effective at improving body weight and glucose metabolism in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes. The findings could set the stage for clinical trials to test the first stem cell-based approach for insulin replacement in patients with type 2 diabetes.
A research team at UC San Francisco has discovered an RNA molecule called Pnky that can be manipulated to increase the production of neurons from neural stem cells.
'Mini-lungs' have been created by researchers using stem cells derived from skin cells of patients with cystic fibrosis, and have shown that these can be used to test potential new drugs for this debilitating lung disease.
