Stem Cell Therapies for Heart Disease – One Step Closer
New research from the University of Bristol reveals that our bodies’ ability to respond to an internal ‘mayday’ signal may hold the key to success for long-awaited regenerative medicine.
Stanford Researchers Discover Pervasive Network Driving Protein Production and Placement in Cells
Stanford University School of Medicine researchers have uncovered what appears to be an extensive, but until now barely noticed, network of regulatory interactions that influence what proteins are made inside a cell, and when and where.
Immortalizing a Piece of Yourself
Stem cells derived from volunteers for the Personal Genome Project will be disseminated globally.
Scientist Clears Hurdles for Muscular Dystrophy Therapy
University of Missouri-Columbia scientist proves therapy can be beneficial for the heart in new studies demonstrating effective gene therapy deliver.
StemCells, Inc. Announces Preclinical Results Showing its Proprietary Human Neural Stem Cells Can Prevent Vision Loss
StemCells, Inc. reported recently that its proprietary HuCNS-SC (R) product candidate (purified human neural stem cells), when transplanted into a well-established animal model, can protect the retina from progressive degeneration.
Singaporean Development of Cell Therapy Treatment for Cancer
Explaining the ground-breaking nature of this trial, Dr Toh says, “What we’re doing is to extract T-cells from the patient’s own blood, then ‘educate’ these cells to recognize certain viral proteins. These T-cells will be expanded into large numbers in the lab and returned back to the patients to fight the cancer.”
C. Difficile Infection Often Seen in Leukemia Patients after Stem Cell Therapy
The results of a small study suggest that nearly a third of patients who undergo allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation will develop Clostridium difficile infection, and that those with leukemia are at much greater risk than patients with lymphoma.
University of Miami Health Cardiologists Are First in the U.S. to Use a Novel Catheter to Inject Stem Cells
Cardiologists at the University of Miami Health System injected stem cells into the heart using a novel, corkscrew-shaped catheter, using bone marrow cell therapy in an effort to treat heart failure.
