May 2, 2016 — Nurturing stem cells atop a bed of mouse cells works well, but is a non-starter for transplants to patients. Instead, scientists are developing a synthetic ... read more

Apr. 25, 2016 — An unexpected link between cellular metabolic and recycling processes points to new cancer therapies. This cellular fuel gauge is a protein complex called AMPK that oversees energy input and output ... read more

Chronic Inflammation Leads to Imbalanced Blood System, Potentially Cancer Risk

Apr. 25, 2016 — Chronic exposure to interleukin-1 causes HSCs to produce cells needed to fight infection and repair injury, but at the expense of their own ability to self-renew and maintain a healthy blood system. ... read more

Researchers Identify Key Factor for Reprogramming Adult Cells Into Stem Cells

Apr. 21, 2016 — Scientists have identified and characterized a biological factor critical to the transformation of adult somatic cells (cells that are not sperm or egg cells) into stem ... read more

Recycling an Anti-Hypertensive Agent to Fight Brain Tumors

Apr. 21, 2016 — Treatments available for glioblastoma -- malignant brain tumors -- have little effect. An international collaboration tested active ingredients from existing medications and eventually identified one ... read more

Apr. 21, 2016 — A plant-based polyphenol promotes the migration of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in blood circulation and accumulates them in damaged tissues to improve wound healing, scientists have found. It is ... read more

Apr. 20, 2016 — Studies using an innovative stem-cell model for a fatal developmental disorder is the focus of a recent study. An expert has uncovered unique cellular defects associated with Smith-Lemli-Opitz ... read more

Gene Therapy Shows Early Success Against 'Bubble Boy' Disease

Apr. 20, 2016 — Early results suggest novel gene therapy is safe and effective for treatment of inherited immune disease, according to scientists. The study involved five males with X-linked severe combined ... read more

Apr. 18, 2016 — A collaborative study has found proof-of-concept evidence for a potential cancer treatment that leverages microparticles and mesenchymal stem ... read more

Breast Cancer Stem Cells Radicalize Normal Neighbors for Purpose of Metastasis

Apr. 18, 2016 — A new study shows that stem-like breast cancer cells secrete molecules that allow neighboring, otherwise anchored cells to ... read more

Preliminary Study: Antibody Therapy Reduces Cancer Stem Cells in Multiple Myeloma

Apr. 16, 2016 — An experimental antibody treatment decreased by half the number of cancer stem cells that drive the growth of tumors in nearly all patients with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow and bone ... read more

Discovered Genes Reveal Novel Insights Into Biology of Glaucoma

Apr. 15, 2016 — New findings provide deeper understanding of the disease which affects mainly aging Asians, and open up new possibilities for the delivery of precision ... read more

Apr. 14, 2016 — For the first time, scientists have confirmed the long-standing hypothesis that as people age, they accumulate gene mutations in their mitochondria -- cells' energy source. The team has ... read more

Scientists Develop Recipe for Testosterone-Producing Cells

Apr. 14, 2016 — Researchers have discovered a way to keep adult stem cells that are destined to become testosterone-producing cells multiplying and on track to fulfill their fate, a new study ... read more
