Clinical Trial Reduces Stress of Cancer Caregivers

May 26, 2015 — A randomized control trial demonstrates an intervention that successfully reduces the stress of caregivers in the context of cancer patients treated with stem cell transplantation. The study enrolled ... read more

New Biotechnology for High Efficiency Purification of Live Human Cells

May 21, 2015 — Cell therapies require a purification step that isolates the desired cell types from contaminating cells. Normally cell surface receptors are used as markers to distinguish cell types, but undesired ... read more

Development of Gold Nanoparticles That Control Osteogenic Differentiation of Stem Cells

May 20, 2015 — Scientists have successfully developed gold nanoparticles that have functional surfaces and act on osteogenic differentiation of stem ... read more

Ulcer-Causing Bacteria Induces Stomach Stem Cell Growth in Mice, Researchers Find

May 6, 2015 — The ulcer-causing bacterium Helicobacter pylori can directly interact with stomach stem cells, causing the cells to divide more rapidly, according to a new study. The increased cell division was ... read more

New Anti-Cancer Stem Cell Compound Under Development

May 6, 2015 — Scientists have developed a novel anti-cancer stem cell agent capable of targeting aggressive tumor forming cells common to breast, pancreas, colon and prostate cancers. The breakthrough comes almost ... read more

May 8, 2015 — New research shows how a single growth factor receptor protein programs the entire genome. The study provides evidence that it all begins with a single "master" growth factor receptor that ... read more

May 4, 2015 — Research has uncovered a new purpose for a rare type of histone: preventing mutations by keeping certain so-called "jumping genes" in place. This discovery reveals a basic mechanism for ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Scientists have discovered a new type of stem cell that could potentially generate mature, functional tissues. They report using these new stem cells to develop the first reliable method for ... read more

New Clues Into How Stem Cells Get Their Identity

May 6, 2015 — Scientists have identified one mechanism that explains how some stem cells choose to become a given cell type: the cells combine specific sets of proteins at precise positions along the DNA. When ... read more

May 5, 2015 — An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and perhaps a serving of broccoli or watercress can help keep cancer at bay. A compound and an enzyme that occur naturally in cruciferous ... read more

May 5, 2015 — Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) possess the ability to grow into almost any kind of cell, which has made them dynamic tools for studying early human development and disease, but much depends ... read more

Potential New Target to Prevent Breast Cancer Relapse

Apr. 23, 2015 — Researchers have discovered an important factor in the development of breast cancer and its spread, which may present a new target for treatment. They have, for the first time, shown how a specific ... read more

US Clinics Avoiding Government Oversight of 'Stem Cell' Treatments

May 1, 2015 — Clinics across the United States are advertising stem cell treatments that attempt to take advantage of what they perceive as exceptions in FDA regulations, according to ... read more

'Humanized' Mice Will Lead to Better Testing of Cancer Immunotherapies

Apr. 23, 2015 — New model XactMice, uses human blood stem cells to grow a 'humanized' mouse immune system prior to tumor transplantation, allowing anti-cancer therapies to be tested in a much more ... read more

May 1, 2015 — Continually producing sperm over a long time is important to procreate the next generation. Researchers have revealed that there are differences in reactivity to retinoic acid in spermatogonial stem ... 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. 30, 2015 — Stem cells, which have the potential to turn into any kind of cell, offer the tantalizing possibility of generating new tissues for organ replacements, stroke victims and patients of many other ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — A clinical trial for patients with degenerative eye diseases is the first to test the safety of an embryonic stem cell therapy for people of Asian descent. The study, which followed four individuals ... read more

Scientists Identify Key Receptors Behind Development of Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Apr. 29, 2015 — Scientists have discovered that a certain class of receptors that inhibit immune response are crucial for the development of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the most common acute leukemia affecting ... read more

Apr. 29, 2015 — The human body is a cross between a factory and a construction zone -- at least on the cellular level. Certain proteins act as project managers, which direct a wide variety of processes and determine ... read more
