Cell-Assisted Lipotransfer: Safety Not Demonstrated

Apr. 28, 2015 — In reconstructive and esthetic medicine, a technique called cell-assisted lipotransfer, i.e., the grafting of the patient's own adipose tissue to another site in the body after mixing with ... read more

Apr. 24, 2015 — Stem cells naturally cling to feeder cells as they grow in petri dishes. Scientists have thought for years that this attachment occurs because feeder cells serve as a support system, providing stems ... read more

Micro Fingers for Arranging Single Cells

Apr. 24, 2015 — A cell manipulation tool has been developed to trap and release single cells in a parallel arrangement in open-top microwells. Using microfabrication techniques, the researchers developed a hollow ... read more

Apr. 24, 2015 — Investigators have developed an imageable mouse model of brain-metastatic breast cancer and shown the potential of a stem-cell-based therapy to eliminate metastatic cells from the brain and prolong ... read more

Stem Cells That Prevent Birth Defect Also Repair Facial Injury

Apr. 22, 2015 — While scientists were investigating the cause of a brain-stifling birth defect, they found a potentially new and better way to heal disfiguring craniofacial injuries in patients of all ages. The ... read more

Researchers Discover New Drugs to Combat the Root Cause of Multiple Sclerosis

Apr. 22, 2015 — Several drugs could lead to new treatment options for multiple sclerosis, including two drugs that effectively treat MS at the source, in vivo, researchers report. At the pathological level, MS is a ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Researchers have taken an important step in research on stem cells and dental repair by isolating dental stem cell lines and describing the natural mechanism by which they repair lesions in the ... read more

Oral Milk Thistle Extract Stops Colorectal Cancer Stem Cells from Growing Tumors

Apr. 20, 2015 — A new study shows that orally administering the chemical silibinin, purified from milk thistle, slows the ability of colorectal cancer stem cells to grow the disease. When stem cells from tumors ... read more

New Drug Combination Shows Promise for Breaking Breast Cancer Resistance

Apr. 20, 2015 — A new combination of drugs has been developed that may overcome treatment resistance and relapse in breast cancer. While most women initially respond well to hormonal treatment with drugs such as ... read more

New Transitional Stem Cells Discovered

Apr. 16, 2015 — In an effort to grow placenta cells to better study the causes of pre-eclampsia, researchers serendipitously discovered a previously unknown form of human embryonic stem ... read more

Stem Cell Injection May Soon Reverse Vision Loss Caused by Age-Related Macular Degeneration

Apr. 14, 2015 — An injection of stem cells into the eye may soon slow or reverse the effects of early-stage age-related macular degeneration, according to new research. Currently, there is no treatment that slows ... read more

New Tool for Understanding ALS: Patients' Brain Cells

Apr. 14, 2015 — Researchers have transformed skin cells from patients with Lou Gehrig’s disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), into brain cells affected by the progressive, fatal disease and deposited ... read more

Apr. 13, 2015 — A gene critical to controlling the body's ability to create blood cells and immune cells from blood-forming stem cells -- known as hematopoietic stem cells -- has been discovered by researchers. ... read more

Gene Therapy Superior to Half-Matched Transplant for 'Bubble Boy Disease'

Apr. 13, 2015 — Children with 'bubble boy disease' who undergo gene therapy have fewer infections and hospitalizations than those receiving stem cells from a partially matched donor, new research suggests. ... read more

Apr. 13, 2015 — A new collaborative study describes a way that lung tissue can regenerate after injury. The team found that lung tissue has more dexterity in repairing tissue than once ... read more

Stem Cell Disease Model Clarifies Bone Cancer Trigger

Apr. 9, 2015 — Using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), a team of researchers has gained new insight into genetic changes that may turn a well known anti-cancer signaling gene into a driver of risk for bone ... read more

Apr. 9, 2015 — Scientists use stem cells derived from amniotic fluid to promote the growth of robust, functional blood vessels in healing hydrogels. The researchers combined versatile amniotic stem cells with ... read more

Novel Mechanism Controlling Lung Cancer Stem Cell Growth Discovered

Apr. 7, 2015 — Lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer and the number one cause of cancer-related mortality. It is estimated that more than 158,000 people will die from lung cancer in the United States ... read more

Tiny Hair Follicle Holds Big Clues About the Life and Death of Stem Cells

Apr. 7, 2015 — Inside the microscopic world of the mouse hair follicle, researchers have discovered big clues about how stem cells regenerate and die. These findings could lead to a better understanding of how the ... read more

Purging a Virus from Organ Transplants

Apr. 7, 2015 — The switch that can awake a dormant cytomegalovirus, a dreadful pathogen in immuno-compromised patients, has been identified by scientists. The switch can be controlled with common drugs, opening a ... read more
