Protection for the Gut Barrier: New Approach May Prevent Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Apr. 20, 2017 — Stem cell transplants can save lives, for example in patients with leukemia. However, these treatments are not free of risks. One complication that may occur is graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), ... read more

Protein Primes Mouse Stem Cells to Quickly Repair Injury, Study Finds

Apr. 18, 2017 — Like drag car racers revving their engines at the starting line, stem cells respond more quickly to injury when they've been previously primed with one dose of a single protein, according to a ... read more

Researchers Improve Technology to Save Sperm Stem Cells

Apr. 6, 2017 — Researchers have found a promising way to preserve sperm stem cells so boys could undergo cancer treatment without risking their ... read more

Apr. 6, 2017 — Researchers have identified a molecular switch that converts skin cells into cells that make up blood vessels, which could ultimately be used to repair damaged vessels in patients with heart disease ... read more

Stem Cell Consortium Tackles Complex Genetic Diseases

Apr. 6, 2017 — Much of stem cell research over the past decade has focused on Mendelian disorders -- those caused by a single gene, such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, and Huntington's disease. But as ... read more

Taking the Sting out of Bone Repair

Apr. 18, 2017 — Spherical biodegradable carriers support scalable and cost-effective stem cell expansion and bone formation for tissue ... read more

Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Reveals Detailed Composition of Two Major Types of Brain Tumor

Mar. 30, 2017 — Detailed analysis of two brain tumor subtypes has revealed that they may originate from the same type of neural progenitor cells and be distinguished by gene mutation patterns and by the composition ... read more

Novel Method for Generating Airway Cells from Stem Cells

Mar. 30, 2017 — Researchers have developed a new approach for growing and studying cells they hope one day will lead to curing lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis through 'personalized ... read more

Stem Cells Help Explain Varied Genetics Behind Rare Neurologic Disease

Mar. 30, 2017 — Researchers have successfully grown stem cells from children with a devastating neurological disease to help explain how different genetic backgrounds can cause common symptoms. They identified ... read more

Mar. 30, 2017 — A subpopulation of highly cancerous stem cells has been discovered in a brain cancer cell line. The cells are not identified by standard tumor cell fluorescence detection methods. By investigating ... read more

Potential Drugs and Targets for Brain Repair

Mar. 28, 2017 — Researchers have discovered drugs that activate signaling pathways leading to specific adult brain cell types from stem cells in the mouse brain, according to a new study. The results may open new ... read more

Discovery of a New Regulatory Protein Provides New Tool for Stem Cell Engineering

Mar. 28, 2017 — Bioengineers have discovered a protein that regulates the switch of embryonic stem cells from the least developed 'naïve' state to the more developed 'primed' state. This ... read more

Researchers Turn Urine Into Research Tools

Mar. 28, 2017 — Researchers have developed a breakthrough technique to harvest cells directly from urine, and grow them into durable, clinically relevant stem cells to study Down ... read more

Mar. 27, 2017 — The usual way of cultivating cells is to use a flat laboratory dish of glass. However, inside a human body, the cells do not grow on a flat surface, but rather in three dimensions. This has lead ... read more

Potential of Stem Cell Therapy to Repair Lung Damage

Mar. 27, 2017 — A new study has found that stem cell therapy can reduce lung inflammation in an animal model of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. Although, still at a pre-clinical ... read more

Stem Cells Shown to Restore Erection Capability in Men With Erectile Dysfunction

Mar. 27, 2017 — New clinical trial results show that stem cells can restore sufficient erectile function to allow previously impotent men to have spontaneous intercourse. This is the first time stem cell therapy has ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Researchers have identified a set of molecular 'flags' that are present on the surface of human stem cells. By recognizing the flags, researchers can now accurately track and investigate ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Researchers have identified cell surface markers specific for the very earliest stem cells in the human embryo. These cells are thought to possess great potential for replacing damaged tissue but ... read more

Mar. 23, 2017 — Scientists have created a new technique that simplifies the production of human brain and muscle cells -- allowing millions of functional cells to be generated in just a few days. The results open ... read more
