University of California Riverside Researcher Develops Non-Animal-Based Method to Grow Human Embryonic Stem Cells
A University of California Riverside researcher has developed a new method, which is not only cleaner and easier to use than conventional methods of culturing hESCs but also results in hESCs whose pluripotency is uncompromised.
RNA Experiments Could Lead to New Treatments for Neuroblastoma
University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston researchers describe cell-culture and animal experiments that demonstrate how shutting down a single biochemical signaling connection dramatically suppresses neuroblastoma tumor formation and slows the cancer’s spread.
Hydrogels Provide Scaffolding for Growth of Bone Cells
Hyaluronic hydrogels developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers may provide a suitable scaffolding to enable bone regeneration.
Japanese Researchers Create Stem Cells from Wisdom Teeth
Researchers at the government-backed National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology said they created stem cells of the type found in human embryos using the removed wisdom teeth of a 10-year-old girl.
ABSTRACTS, REVIEWS AND SPECIAL REPORTS
Allogeneic Endometrial Regenerative Cells: An “Off the Shelf Solution” for Critical Limb Ischemia?
Researchers using cells obtained from menstrual blood, termed ‘endometrial regenerative cells’ were capable of restoring blood flow in an animal model of advanced peripheral artery disease.
Therapeutic RNAi Targeting PCSK9 Acutely Lowers Plasma Cholesterol in Rodents and LDL Cholesterol in Nonhuman Primates
Here, the researchers have developed active, cross-species, small interfering RNAs capable of targeting murine, rat, nonhuman primate, and human PCSK9. These results pave the way for the development of PCSK9-lowering agents as a future strategy for treatment of hypercholesterolemia.
The Effect of Controlled Growth Factor Delivery on Embryonic Stem Cell Differentiation Inside Fibrin Scaffolds
The goal of this project was to develop 3-D biomaterial scaffolds that present cues to direct the differentiation of embryonic stem cell-derived neural progenitor cells, seeded inside the scaffolds, into mature neural phenotypes, specifically neurons and oligodendrocytes.
