Gladstone Scientists Identify Key Factors in Heart Cell Creation
Scientists at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease have identified for the first time key genetic factors that drive the process of generating new heart cells.
World’s Fastest Camera Relies on an Entirely New Type of Imaging
Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a novel, continuously running camera that captures images roughly a thousand times faster than any existing conventional camera.
Stem Cell Focus for Inflammatory Bowel Disease Wound Healing
Scientists at The University of Nottingham are investigating whether stem cell markers could have a role to play in speeding up wound healing in patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease.
From Connective Tissue to Bone
Cartilage, bones and the internal walls of blood vessels have been successfully created by using common connective tissue cells from human skin.
Discovery a Key to Blood Cell Development
A West Australian research team has made the world-first discovery a ‘pied piper’ molecule within blood cells, called Liar, which leads other molecules into the nucleus of the cell.
Scientists Shed Light on Inner Workings of Human Embryonic Stem Cells
Scientists at UC Santa Barbara show that a microRNA lowers the activity of three key ingredients in the recipe for embryonic stem cells.
Gene Therapy Shows Potential in Treating Diabetic Polyneuropathy
Intramuscular injections of vascular endothelial growth factor gene show promise for improving neuropathic symptoms in individuals with diabetic polyneuropathy, a condition most commonly affecting diabetics who have had the disease for many years.
First Large-scale Computer Simulation of Gene Therapy
Recently a group of researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and Los Alamos National Laboratory describe the first comprehensive, molecular-level numerical study of gene therapy.
Medistem Reports Positive Multiple Sclerosis Data Using Fat Stem Cells
Medistem Inc. announced recently the publication of a peer reviewed paper describing the scientific rationale and preliminary results of three patients with multiple sclerosis treated with their own fat derived stem cells.
New Data Regarding ReNeuron’s ReN001 Stem Cell Line for Stroke
ReNeuron Group plc recently announced further data concerning the pre-clinical characterization and mode of action of ReNeuron’s lead ReN001 neural stem cell line for stroke.
ABSTRACTS, REVIEWS AND SPECIAL REPORTS
Mesenchymal Stem Cells Facilitate the Derivation of Human Embryonic Stem Cells from Cryopreserved Poor-quality Embryos
Here the researchers attempted to optimize hESC derivation from frozen poor-quality embryos, which is usually low and normally achieved by plating embryos on mouse or human foreskin feeders.
Three key Variables Involved in Feeder Preparation for the Maintenance of Human Embryonic Stem Cells
Three variables have been evaluated with respect to feeder preparation and MMC involvement, including mEF exposure to MMC, density of feeder cells, and different wash steps during the preparation of feeder cells.
