Human Embryonic Stem Cells Have the Potential to Develop into Eggs and Sperm in the Laboratory
Scientists in the UK have proved that human embryonic stem cells can develop in the laboratory into the early forms of cells that eventually become eggs or sperm.
Eggs from Embryonic Stem Cells Could Benefit Sterile Women
Monash researchers have developed a process that causes embryonic stem (ES) cells to develop into ovarian structures containing eggs.
Stem Cells to Solve Blood Shortage Problems
The State Government of Victoria, Australia announced that Melbourne scientists at Monash University have developed a unique technology that can grow large numbers of blood cells from human embryonic stem cells.
Blood Cells Develop from Stem Cells
Researchers in Baltimore have discovered that human embryonic stem cells grown in the laboratory develop spontaneously into blood cells.
Stem Cells Grown In Lab Mirror Normal Developmental Steps
Johns Hopkins scientists have developed a way to study the earliest steps of human blood development using human embryonic stem cells grown in a lab dish instead of the embryos themselves.
Researchers Discover Stem Cell ‘Guide’ that May Be Key for Targeting Neural Stem Cell Treatments
UC Irvine School of Medicine researchers have discovered how new neurons born from endogenous neural stem cells are sent to regions of the brain where they can replace old and dying cells, a finding that suggests how stem cell therapies can be specifically targeted to brain regions affected by neurodegenerative diseases or by stroke
Researchers Discover Mechanism that May Enable Stem Cell-based Treatment for Eye Disorders
In discovering a protein that helps organize the development of the retina, UC Irvine researchers have found a new molecular mechanism that may allow for stem cell-based therapies to treat eye disorders such as retinal degeneration.
Researchers Grow Stem Cells from Human Skin
Researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine have successfully isolated stem cells from human skin, expanded them in the laboratory and coaxed them into becoming fat, muscle and bone cells.
Engineered Muscles Pump Blood
For years, a major obstacle has dashed the hopes of creating “replacement parts” for the human body: the lack of an internal, nourishing blood system in engineered tissues. Without it, thicker tissues can’t thrive, a fact that has confined tissue engineering’s practical application to thin skin, which can recruit blood vessels from underlying tissue.
Breakthrough: UNC Scientists Have Created World’s Tiniest Uniform, Precisely Shaped Organic Particles
Adapting technology pioneered by the electronics industry in fabricating transistors, the team has figured out for the first time how to create particles for carrying genetic material, pharmaceuticals and other compounds of unprecedented small size and uniformity.
SPECT Imaging Can Evaluate Stem Cell Therapy Effectiveness in Patients with Coronary Heart Disease
Researchers from Seoul National University confirmed that single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of stem cell therapy with ischemic or coronary heart disease.
Stem Cells Fix Damaged Leg Arteries
“We designed a project to take adult stem cells isolated from a patients’ own bone marrow and inject them into the leg,” Dr. Lawson said.
Aging Stem Cells Linked to Leukemia in Elderly
Aging stem cells may be behind an increased risk of infection and leukemia in older people, according to a Stanford University School of Medicine study.
