New Technique Invented to Reveal Pancreatic Stem Cells
In a recent study, researchers have shown with a novel technique that a particular subset of the pancreatic cells, the so-called acinar cells, are indeed stem cells.
Stem Cell Breakthrough May Lead to MS Treatments
U.S. scientists say they’ve coaxed human embryonic stem cells into generating cells that might someday be used to repair nerves damaged by multiple sclerosis.
Magnetized Stem Cell Shot Could Repair Bones and Joints
Keele scientists 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.
University of Florida Researcher Identifies Stem Cell Marker for Possible ‘Root’ of Colon Cancer
To truly kill colon cancer and eliminate the risk of recurrence, it is important to kill the “root” of the disease, according to a University of Florida College of Medicine surgeon.
Scientists Use Advanced Genomic Technology to Uncover Profiles of Gene Activity from Single Cells
Applied Biosystems recently announced that researchers have discovered comprehensive profiles of gene activity from single cells using its SOLiD System.
Scientists Identify Key Gene that Protects Against Leukemia
Researchers have identified a gene that controls the rapid production and differentiation of the stem cells that produce all blood cell types.
Gene Therapy Appears Safe to Regenerate Gum Tissue
Scientists at the University of Michigan have developed a method of gene delivery that appears safe for regenerating tooth-supporting gum tissue.
UCSF Team Closer to Creating Safe Embryonic-like Stem Cells
A team of UCSF researchers has for the first time used tiny molecules called microRNAs to help turn adult mouse cells back to their embryonic state.
Molecule Prompts Damaged Heart Cells to Repair Themselves After a Heart Attack
A protein that the heart produces during its early development reactivates the embryonic coronary developmental program and initiates migration of heart cells and blood vessel growth after a heart attack.
Stem Cells Spur New Eggs in Ovaries of Adult Mice
Researchers in China have demonstrated that female ovaries may be capable of producing new eggs in adulthood and subsequently producing offspring.
