Stem Cells Hold Promise in Treating Retinal Degeneration
A team of University of Louisville scientists have discovered that stem cells taken from bone marrow can restore damaged retinal tissue by generating new cells.
The Future of Personalized Cancer Treatment: An Entirely New Direction for RNAi Delivery
In technology that promises to one day allow drug delivery to be tailored to an individual patient and a particular cancer tumor, researchers have developed an efficient system for delivering siRNA into primary cells.
University of the Basque Country Researcher Develops Nanoparticles to be Used in Genic Therapy
Genic therapy can be used both with rare diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and disorders of the retina, as well as with more common illnesses, such as AIDS, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
Study Points Toward Relationship between Cancer Stem Cells and Prognosis in Primary Breast Cancer
In the first prospective study to investigate the presence of breast cancer stem cells of primary breast cancer patients. The results suggest the need for additional biological therapies, and a promising new direction for the study of micro-metastasis.
Using High-precision Laser Tweezers To Juggle Cells
Researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have developed a new method to study single cells while exposing them to controlled environmental changes.
How an Enzyme Tells Stem Cells Which Way to Divide
University of Oregon biochemists report a mechanism dictating cell division is not a long cascade of events.
New Tool Isolates RNA Within Specific Cells
University of Oregon biologists provide quick, precise view of cell development and gene expression.
New Approach Protects Monkeys from a Virus that Closely Resembles HIV
Researchers have managed to protect monkeys from infection with the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), the animal model that is closest to HIV, by shuttling a gene into their muscles that produces antibody-like molecules.
New Strategies for Cell Therapy to Regenerate Damaged Heart
Research undertaken at the Center for Applied Medical Research and the University Hospital of Navarra has shown that, in animal models, stem cells derived from bone marrow and adipose tissue enhance heart function after a cardiac attack.
Pervasis Therapeutics Presents Promising Preclinical Data for its Minimally Invasive Cell Therapy
Results from the preclinical study found that treatment with allogeneic endothelial cells following an intervention for peripheral arterial disease resulted in a statistically significant increased lumen area, reduced intimal area, and decreased occlusion compared to control.
Cell Therapy Successful in Severe Cases of Angina Pectoris in Heart Patients
A new treatment involving the injection of bone marrow cells is beneficial to people who suffer from a severe form of angina pectoris.
Aastrom Proactively Places Phase II IMPACT-DCM Clinical Trial On Hold Following Report of Serious Adverse Event
Aastrom Biosciences, Inc. recently announced that the Company has temporarily suspended enrollment and patient treatment in its U.S. Phase II IMPACT-DCM clinical trial following a report that a patient died at home after being released from the hospital following treatment in the trial.
