Now, scientists have taken a leaf out of natures book in an attempt to develop effective stem cell treatment for osteoarthritis, ... read more Regenerating Nerve Tissue in Spinal Cord Injuries Aug. 13, 2015 Researchers are exploring a new therapy using stem cells to treat spinal cord injuries within the first 14 to 30 days of injury. The therapy uses a population of cells derived from human embryonic ... read more Newly Discovered Cells Regenerate Liver Tissue Without Forming Tumors Aug. 13, 2015 The mechanisms that allow the liver to repair and regenerate itself have long been a matter of debate. Now researchers have discovered a population of liver cells that are better at regenerating ... read more Aug. 12, 2015 Scientists have discovered metabolic rejuvenation factors in eggs. This critical finding furthers our understanding of how cellular metabolism changes during aging, and during rejuvenation after egg ... read more Can Stem Cells Cause and Cure Cancer? Aug. 12, 2015 Simply put, cancer is caused by mutations to genes within a cell that lead to abnormal cell growth. Finding out what causes that genetic mutation has been the holy grail of medical science for ... read more Why Statins Should Be Viewed as a Double-Edged Sword Aug. 12, 2015 Statins have significant cardiovascular benefits, but also serious side effects. A new study finds that statin use impairs stem cell function, which helps in slowing atherosclerosis but hinders other ... read more Researcher Studying Advances in Next-Generation Stem Cell Culture Technologies Aug. 10, 2015 A researcher is studying ways to advance the next generation of cell culture technologiesthe removal of stem cells from an organism and the controlled growth of those cells in an engineering ... read more Stem Cells Help Researchers Study the Effects of Pollution on Human Health Aug. 10, 2015 Embryonic stem cells could serve as a model to evaluate the physiological effects of environmental pollutants efficiently and cost-effectively. The use of stem cells has found another facade. In the ... read more Aug. 5, 2015 Scientists have, for the first time, found further evidence of how the differentiation of pluripotent cells is tied to and controlled by the cell cycle clock. This deeper understanding of how cells ... read more From Pluripotency to Totipotency Aug. 4, 2015 While it is already possible to obtain in vitro pluripotent cells (i.e., cells capable of generating all tissues of an embryo) from any cell type, researchers have pushed the limits of science even ... read more Precision Medicine Brought One Step Closer to the Clinic Aug. 3, 2015 A revolutionary, high-throughput, robotic platform has been designed that automates and standardizes the process of transforming patient samples into stem cells. This unique platform for the first ... read more Aug. 3, 2015 Investigators report that they have been able to drive cells to grow into muscle fibers, producing millimeter-long muscle fibers capable of contracting in a dish and multiplying in large numbers. ... read more July 30, 2015 Evaluating drug-induced liver injury is a critical part of pharmaceutical drug discovery and must be carried out on human liver cells. Now, scientists report that they produced large amounts of ... read more How a Single Molecule Turns One Immune Cell Into Another July 30, 2015 All it takes is one molecule to reprogram an antibody-producing B cell into a scavenging macrophage. This transformation is possible, new evidence shows, because the molecule (C/EBPa, a transcription ... read more July 29, 2015 A first-of-its kind prostate 'organoid' grown from human embryonic stem cells has enabled researchers to show that exposure to bisphenol A, a chemical in many plastics, can cause ... read more Scientists Identify Gene Vital for Rebuilding Intestine After Cancer Treatment July 29, 2015 A rare type of stem cell is immune to radiation damage thanks to high levels of a gene called Sox9, researchers have ... read more New Drug for Blood Cancers Now in Five Phase II Clinical Trials July 28, 2015 The safety and dosing of a new drug for treating blood cancers has now been established by a group of scientists. The drug is a small molecule inhibitor that suppresses the activity of a signaling ... read more
