Study Finds Blood Cells Can Be Reprogrammed to Act as Embryonic Stem Cells
In a recent study, U.S. researchers have reprogrammed cells found in circulating blood into cells that are molecularly and functionally indistinguishable from embryonic stem cells.Article
Blind to be Cured with Stem Cells
British scientists have developed a treatment involving replacing a layer of degenerated cells with new ones created from embryonic stem cells.
Cystic Fibrosis To Be Treated By Gene Therapy Technology
Better treatment for cystic fibrosis by scientists involve plasmids, tiny circles of DNA that can carry healthy genes to where they can replace faulty CF genes in the lining of the lung.
On the Trail of Huntington Disease
Using gene therapy, University of Southern California Davis School of Gerontology researchers have taken an important first step toward protecting against Huntington disease.
Magnetic Force to Ease Aching Bones
Keele University researchers are testing injectable stem cells that they can control with a magnet, which would mean that doctors may soon be able to repair damaged bones and joints anywhere in the body with a simple injection.
Human Stem Cells Promote Healing of Diabetic Ulcers
Scientists in Bristol have found that human foetal stem cells can effectively be used to treat back leg ischaemic ulcers in a model of type 1 diabetes.
New Method Developed by UC San Diego Bioengineers Gives Regenerative Medicine a Boost
Bioengineers at UC San Diego have developed a breakthrough method for sequencing-based methylation profiling, which could help fuel personalized regenerative medicine and even lead to more efficient and cost-effective methods for studying certain diseases.
University of British Columbia Research Finds Molecular “Key” to Successful Blood Stem Cell Transplants
Canadian researchers have identified a molecule called S1P that can tell the thymus to “open the gates” and accept more stem cells.
Stem Cells May Help Repair ACL Tears
A novel approach to repairing partially torn anterior cruciate ligaments in young athletes has shown promise, according to a group of orthopedic surgeons in Italy.
Osiris Completes Enrollment in Second Prochymal Phase III Trial for Graft vs. Host Disease
Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. recently announced that it has successfully completed patient enrollment in its pivotal, Phase III trial evaluating Prochymal as a first-line treatment for acute graft vs. host disease.
ABSTRACTS, REVIEWS AND SPECIAL REPORTS
Efficient Production of Mesencephalic Dopamine Neurons by Lmx1a Expression in Embryonic Stem Cells
This study shows that forced expression of Lmx1a, a transcription factor functioning as a determinant of mesDA neurons during embryogenesis, effectively can promote the generation of mesDA neurons from mouse and human ESCs.
Effectiveness of Haemodialysis Access with an Autologous Tissue-engineered Vascular Graft: a Multicentre Cohort Study
Application of a tissue-engineered vascular graft for small-diameter vascular reconstruction results after a minimum of 6 months of follow-up for the first ten patients implanted with a completely biological and autologous tissue-engineered vascular graft are reported.
Dedifferentiated, Programmable Stem Cells of Monocytic Origin, and Their Production and Use
The current patent covers the A process for the production of dedifferentiated, programmable cells of human monocytic origin.
