Scientists use stem cells from frogs to build first living robots
Be warned. If the rise of the robots comes to pass, the apocalypse may be a squelchier affair than science fiction writers have prepared us for.
Transplanted stem cells become eggs in sterile mice
With an assist, an old mouse might be able to make new eggs.
Iranian specialists turn to stem cells for treating retina damage
Iranian specialists have sought to treat corneal damage by using stem cells over the past year. Fortunately, their efforts have borne fruit.
Researchers find cure for cataract using stem cells
In a landmark breakthrough in cataract treatment, researchers have managed to regenerate a living lens through using patients' own stem cells to restore the vision.
New target could eliminate lurking cancer stem cells
Scientists from Trinity College Dublin have identified a novel target that could help to identify cancer stem cells while they are in their inactive state. The scientists could then jolt these cells into action so that they could be eliminated by radio or chemotherapeutic approaches.
Iranians use stem cells to treat Parkinson's disease
Researchers from Shahid Beheshti University have obtained positive results from applying stem cells in treating Parkinson's disease.
Photoreceptors from embryonic stem cells may treat AMRD
Age-related macular degeneration (AMRD) could be treated by transplanting photoreceptors produced by the directed differentiation of stem cells, thanks to findings by Professor Gilbert Bernier of the University of Montreal.
Sticky gel helps stem cells heal rat hearts
A sticky, protein-rich gel, created by Johns Hopkins researchers, appears to help stem cells stay on or in rat hearts and restore their metabolism after transplantation, improving cardiac function after simulated heart attacks, according to results of a new study.
Royan Institute to treat kidney failure by stem cells
The Iranian Royan Institute is carrying out clinical trials in the field of kidney treatment by stem cells.
Variations in cell programs control cancer, stem cells
In the breast, cancer stem cells and normal stem cells can arise from different cell types but tap into distinct yet related stem cell programs, according to Whitehead Institute researchers. The differences between these stem cell programs may be significant enough to be exploited by future therapeutics.
Stem cells may relieve neuropathic pain
Chronic pain ― caused by the nerve damage of type 2 diabetes, surgical amputation, chemotherapy and other conditions ― is especially intractable because it resists painkilling medications.
TTB bacteria hide bone marrow stem cells
A new study from the Forsyth Institute is helping to shed light on latent tuberculosis and the bacteria's ability to hide in stem cells. Some bone marrow stem cells reside in low oxygen (hypoxia) zones. These specialized zones are secured as immune cells and toxic chemicals cannot reach this zone. Hypoxia- activated cell signaling pathways may also protect the stem cells from dying or aging. A new study led by Forsyth Scientist Dr. Bikul Das has found that Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) hijack this protective hypoxic zone to hide intracellular to a special stem cell type.
New way to disrupt brain tumor stem cells
Some brain tumors are notoriously difficult to treat. Whether surgically removed, zapped by radiation or infiltrated by chemotherapy drugs, they find a way to return.
