Stem cell hope for incurable diseases
A group of scientists at the University of Colorado has achieved positive results in an experiment with stem cells extracted from human skin, a technique that has "the potential" for successfully treating presently incurable diseases. The scientists "reprogrammed" cells in both healthy and sick adults into ...

Scientists isolate cancer stem cells using novel method
Stem cells are in various tissues in the body, and unlike regular cells, which have a limited lifespan, they can divide and renew themselves for long periods of time. They are also unspecialized, meaning that when one of them divides, the resulting cells can transform into another cell type. For example ...

Stem cells help patch up brain damage in stroke victims
Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed a new stem-cell-based treatment for strokes. When tested in animal models, the technique was found to reduce brain damage and help the brain heal itself faster, and the results have been promising enough that human clinical trials may follow ...

Clues to aging found in stem cells' genomes
Stem cells that produce sperm use a genetic trick to stay perpetually young across generations, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigator Yukiko Yamashita and colleagues have discovered. Certain sections of the fruit fly genome get shorter with age. But remarkably, some reproductive cells ...

A review on stem cell therapy for multiple sclerosis: special focus on human embryonic stem cells
Abstract: Multiple sclerosis (MS), a complex disorder of the central nervous system (CNS), is characterized with axonal loss underlying long-term progressive disability. Currently available therapies for its management are able to slow down the progression but fail to treat it completely. Moreover, these ...

Functioning human mini-kidney grown from stem cells in mice for first time
Functional human “mini-kidneys” capable of filtering blood to produce urine have been grown in a living organism in a medical first that marks a major step towards treatments for kidney disease. Researchers have been able to develop human stem cells into a mini-kidney which is “markedly more ...

Researchers uncover how cancer stem cells drive triple-negative breast cancer
8, 2018, Cleveland: Cleveland Clinic researchers have published findings in Nature Communications on a new stem cell pathway that allows a highly aggressive form of breast cancer - triple-negative breast cancer - to thrive. Hormone therapy for breast cancer blocks cancer cells from interacting with ...

A&M and Celltex partner on stem cell Alzheimer's research
Stem cells are considered a potential future of medicine. Their potential to rejuvenate dying or diseased tissue and organs has excited researchers at the Texas Medical Center and around the nation for 20 years, the envisioned linchpin of a new field - regenerative medicine. The field has not yet made it ...

Researchers devise strategies to target glioma stem cells that could improve patient survival
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor and has one of the worst survival rates of all cancers. Despite surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, these tumors virtually always become resistant to therapy and eventually recur. The cancer stem cells within these tumors ...

Feb 6th 2018 
After decades of effort, scientists have finally managed to derive embryonic stem (ES) cells from cows and keep them in their primitive state in a dish. Access to these versatile cells, which can become all kinds of tissues, from skin to muscle to bone, could make it easier to tweak and preserve useful ..

Haqqani: Repairing the heart with stem cells
The heart is a muscle that relies on a steady flow of oxygen-rich blood through its chambers to nourish it and to allow it to keep pumping as it should. When blockages occur in the arteries that deliver blood to the heart and blood flow is interrupted, the result is a heart attack. The areas of the heart fed by ...
