International Stem Cell Collaboration Results in Discovery of Promising New Stem Cell Type
Researchers have announced the discovery of a previously unidentified stem cell population from adult human testis.
Stem Cell Protein Offers a New Cancer Target
A protein abundant in embryonic stem cells is now shown to be important in cancer, and offers a possible new target for drug development.
Hundreds of Cell-surface Proteins Can Be Simultaneously Studied with New Technique
The results obtained could help to develop more accurate diagnostic tests and more specific therapies in the future.
Gene Therapy for Hemophilia A Mice
Researchers have now developed a new approach to target genes specifically to mouse liver sinusoidal endothelial cells and used it to provide long-term expression of Factor VIII in hemophilia A mice, markedly reducing their disease.
MicroRNA Replacement Therapy May Stop Cancer in Its Tracks
Scientists at Johns Hopkins have discovered a potential strategy, by delivering microRNAs to cancer cells, could help to stop the disease in its tracks.
Trimming the Fat Boosts Blood Recovery After Marrow Transplant
Seeking ways to improve blood recovery after chemotherapy or bone marrow transplant, researchers have discovered that fat cells, which accumulate in bone marrow as people age, inhibit the marrow’s ability to produce new blood cells.
Landmark Stem Cells Trial Yields Positive Results
The Phase I trial of HuCNS-SC (purified human neural stem cells) conducted at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital included six children with advanced stages of infantile and late-infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, often referred to as Batten disease.
Alnylam and Cubist Report Preliminary Data from Phase II Study of ALN-RSV01 in Lung Transplant Patients Naturally Infected with Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals recently reported preliminary data from their Phase II study of ALN-RSV01, an RNAi therapeutic in development for the treatment of respiratory syncytial virus infection.
