VIDEO: An Introduction to a New and Innovative Way of Making Uniform, Size-controlled Embryoid Bodies
Xie Lab Uncovers Molecular Machinery Related to Stem Cell Fate
The Stowers Institute’s Xie Lab has revealed how the BAM protein affects germline stem cell differentiation and how it is involved in regulating the quality of stem cells through intercellular competition.
Stem Cell Surprise for Tissue Regeneration
Scientists have overturned previous research that the genes that make muscle stem cells in the embryo are surprisingly not needed in adult muscle stem cells to regenerate muscles after injury.
Like Burrs on Your Clothes, Virus-size Capsules Stick to Cells to Target Drug Delivery
It is now possible to engineer tiny containers the size of a virus to deliver drugs and other materials with almost 100 percent efficiency to targeted cells in the bloodstream.
Stem Cell Discovery May Bring Tissue Repair Closer
By studying zebrafish embryos, the research team found BMP4, a protein involved in bone and cartilage development, to be the critical signal required to generate haematopoietic, stem cells in the dorsal aorta.
Stem Cells Created From Pigs’ Connective Tissue Cells
Scientists at the University of Missouri have developed the ability to take regular cells from a pig’s connective tissues, known as fibroblasts, and transform them into stem cells, eliminating several potential side effects.
Possible Cure Found for Crohn’s Disease
Initial findings from the world’s first controlled trial of the procedure have raised hopes that it could banish the disease’s symptoms for many years in up to half of the patients who undergo it.
Living Cell Technologies’ Diabetes Clinical Trial Authorized by New Zealand Government
Living Cell Technologies Limited recently announced that the New Zealand Minister of Health has authorized LCT’s New Zealand Phase I/IIa clinical trial of DIABECELL(R) for insulin dependent diabetes.
Osiris Therapeutics Reports Interim Data for COPD Stem Cell Study
Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. recently announced six-month interim data from a Phase II clinical trial evaluating Prochymal, the Company’s proprietary formulation of adult mesenchymal stem cells, for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
ABSTRACTS, REVIEWS AND SPECIAL REPORTS
The Role of Stromal Stem Cells in Tissue Regeneration and Wound Repair
In mammalian wounds, stromal stem cells appear to be positioned to perform functions similar to those of blastemal cells, including communication with both the overlying epithelium and the inflammatory cells in the mesenchyme. (Science)
Experimental Formation of Periodontal Structure Around Titanium Implants Utilizing Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells: A Pilot Study
With the increasing need to utilize dental implants for growing patients and enhance their function to simulate normal tooth physiology and proprioception, there appears to be an urgent need for the concept of periodontal tissue regeneration around dental implants. (Journal of Oral Implantology)
