Hybrid Treatment Hunts Down and Kills Leukemia Cells

July 28, 2016 — Researchers have developed a hybrid treatment that harnesses a monoclonal antibody to deliver antisense DNA to acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells and that may lead to less toxic treatments for ... read more

July 28, 2016 — Our skin renews, heals wounds, and regenerates the hair that covers it thanks to a small group of stem cells. Now a research team has identified two proteins that are fundamental to conserve skin ... read more

Confronted With Sepsis, Key Immune Mechanism Breaks, Scientists Find

July 28, 2016 — When the body encounters an infection, a molecular signaling system ramps up the body's infection-fighting system to produce more white blood cells to attack invading bacteria. Now researchers ... read more

July 27, 2016 — By monitoring stem cell differentiation on gels that mimic the stiffness of biological tissue, researchers have identified the metabolites that stem cells use when selecting bone and cartilage fates. ... read more

Monitoring Cell Fates

July 27, 2016 — Scientists have been studying the factors influencing the development of different blood cells. Their research shows that certain molecular mechanisms are not as relevant as previously assumed. This ... read more

July 25, 2016 — In a series of experiments, the embryonic stem cell gene Nanog kicked into action dormant cellular processes that are key to preventing weak bones, clogged arteries and other telltale signs of ... read more

Sub-Set of Stem Cells Found to Minimize Risks When Used to Treat Damaged Hearts

July 25, 2016 — Scientists use mathematical modeling to simulate human mesenchymal stem cell delivery to a damaged heart and found that using one sub-set of these stem cells minimizes the risks associated with this ... read more

July 22, 2016 — Scientists have identified three types of vaccine-induced antibodies that can neutralize diverse strains of influenza virus that infect humans. The discovery will help guide development of a ... read more

Gene Controls Regeneration of Injured Muscle by Adult Stem Cells

July 21, 2016 — A key gene enables the repair of injured muscle throughout life, according to a study in mice. The study results further suggest that this "overlooked" gene may play an important role in ... read more

July 21, 2016 — The choroid plexus, a largely ignored structure in the brain that produces the cerebrospinal fluid, is an important regulator of adult neural stem cells, research indicates. The study also shows that ... read more

July 20, 2016 — A new study offers a compelling hypothesis explaining poor prognosis for obese cancer patients: researchers found that leukemia stem cells "hide" in fatty tissue, even transforming this ... read more

ALS Research Suggests Stem Cells Be 'Aged' to Speed Progress Toward Finding Treatments

July 19, 2016 — Scientists are seeking to build an improved stem-cell model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to accelerate progress toward a cure for the devastating neurological disorder. Their findings ... read more

Protein Found to Bolster Growth of Damaged Muscle Tissue

July 19, 2016 — Biologists have found that a protein that plays a key role in the lives of stem cells can bolster the growth of damaged muscle tissue, a step that could contribute to treatments for muscle ... read more
