Pittsburgh Researchers Identify Population of Adult Stem Cells Found in Blood Vessels With Broad Ability To Regenerate Other Tissues
In a promising finding for the field of regenerative medicine, stem cell researchers at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center have identified a source of adult stem cells found on the walls of blood vessels with the unlimited potential to differentiate into human tissues such as bone, cartilage and muscle.
Findings Show RNA Interference has much Larger Role in Cellular Functions and Processes than Previously Thought
A team of scientists at IBM and the Genome Institute of Singapore, have discovered that microRNAs – small molecules that are an important regulatory component in the machinery of living cells – actually regulate the differentiation of stem cells and have roles that go way beyond what was previously thought.
New Technology Paves the Way for the Future of Identifying Proteins Inside Cells
The new research outlines how an imaging technique known as coherent two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy, 2DIR, has been used to successfully identify proteins in laboratory tests.
Bioheart Reports Promising Results From Preclinical Study of Adipose-Derived Acute Cell Therapy
A preclinical study involving the injection of adipose-derived stem cells into the myocardium of infarcted rats, showed evidence of regeneration of cardiomyocytes subsequent to injection of dipose-derived stem cells following heart attack.
Gene Therapy for Chronic Pain Enters First Human Trial
Recently, University of Michigan scientists began a phase 1 clinical trial for the treatment of cancer-related pain, using a novel gene transfer vector injected into the skin to deliver a pain-relieving gene to the nervous system.
NIH Fast Track Grant Awarded to Arteriocyte for Critical Limb Ischemia Research
The NANEX technology involves electrospun nanofibers that create a synthetic bone marrow “niche” environment, allowing stem cells to rapidly proliferate while maintaining their undifferentiated “stem” property.
ABSTRACTS, REVIEWS AND SPECIAL REPORTS
Interleukin-1 Mediated Hematopoietic Cell Regulation in the Aorta-Gonad-Mesonephros Region of the Mouse Embryo
The study’s results suggest that IL-1 is an important homeostatic regulator at the earliest time of HSC development, acting to limit the differentiation of some HSCs along the myeloid lineage.
Rescue of Salivary Gland Function after Stem Cell Transplantation in Irradiated Glands
The researchers’ approach is the first proof for the potential use of stem cell transplantation to functionally rescue salivary gland deficiency.
Differences in Lymphocyte Developmental Potential Between Human Embryonic Stem Cell and Umbilical Cord Blood–Derived Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells
This study’s results demonstrate fundamental differences between hESC-derived hematopoietic progenitors and analogous primary human cells.
What to Do with Leftover Embryos in Fertility Clinics?
The majority of infertility patients are in favor of using left-over embryos for stem cell research and would also support selling left-over embryos to other couples, according to a recent survey.
