New induced stem cells may unmask cancer at earliest stage

MADISON - By coaxing healthy and diseased human bone marrow to become embryonic-like stem cells, a team of Wisconsin scientists has laid the groundwork for observing the onset of the blood cancer leukemia in the laboratory dish. "This is the first...

Johns Hopkins researchers develop safer way to make induced pluripotent stem...

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have found a better way to create induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells -- adult cells reprogrammed with the properties of embryonic stem cells -- from a small blood sample. This new method, described last week in Cell Re...

Different sources, same result

Numerous patients suffering from chronic liver diseases are currently receiving inadequate treatment due to the lack of organs donated for transplantation. However, hepatocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) could offer an...

Soft substrate promotes pluripotent stem cell culture

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- University of Illinois researchers have found a key to keeping stem cells in their neutral state: It takes a soft touch. In a paper published in the journal PLoS One, the researchers demonstrated that culturing mouse embry...

Stem cells turned into complex, functioning intestinal tissue in lab

CINCINNATI -- For the first time, scientists have created functioning human intestinal tissue in the laboratory from pluripotent stem cells. In a study posted online Dec. 12 by Nature, scientists from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center...

Stem cell patch may result in improved function following heart attack

CINCINNATI -- University of Cincinnati (UC) researchers have found that applying a stem cell-infused patch together with overexpression of a specific cell instruction molecule promoted cell migration to damaged cardiac tissue following heart attack ...

Researchers generate iPSCs to further treatments for lung disease

(Boston) A team of researchers from Boston University's Center for Regenerative Medicine and the Pulmonary Center have generated 100 new lines of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) from individuals with lung diseases, including cystic fib...

A smart use for wisdom teeth: Making stem cells

For most people, wisdom teeth are not much more than an annoyance that eventually needs to be removed. However, a new study appearing in the September 17 Journal of Biological Chemistry shows that wisdom teeth contain a valuable reservoir of...

Researchers at UC Riverside find solution to cell death problem vexing...

RIVERSIDE, Calif. -- Human pluripotent stem (hPS) cells can generate any given cell type in the adult human body, which is why they are of interest to stem cell scientists working on finding therapies for spinal cord injuries, Parkinson's dis...

Sight-saving research halted by stem cell ruling

The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), a professional organization of member scientists, opposes the Federal District Court injunction that froze federal funding for human embryonic stem cell (hESC) research. ARVO is trou...
