Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) have demonstrated for the first time that adipose-derived allogeneic stem cells can mitigate the effects of acute radiation syndrome (ARS) caused by total body irradiation (TBI). This discovery will allow the creation of stem cell storage facilities for use in case of a radioactive emergency.
Researchers have found one of the reasons why more than 50% of people with type 2 diabetes die from complications from cardiovascular disease. And more importantly, they may have found a therapeutic approach based on stem cell activation that solves this problem.
An international research team has successfully demonstrated that intravenous injection of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in patients with spinal cord injuries resulted in significant improvement in motor function.
The FOXO3 gene, linked to longevity, protects brain stem cells from the damaging effects of stress, according to a new study by scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College, New York.
With age, neural stem cells lose their ability to divide and produce new neurons, which leads to memory impairment. Researchers at the University of Zurich have discovered a mechanism associated with stem cell aging and have developed a method that can reactivate neuronal production. Read more
Scientists have created a drug that can lure stem cells to damaged tissue and increase the effectiveness of therapy. The discovery will help improve existing stem cell therapies for neurological disorders such as spinal cord injury, stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, other neurodegenerative disorders. Also, it will be possible to expand the scope of their use for the treatment of, for example, arthritis or heart disease.
Scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum München, Germany, were able to describe in detail the pathways of intestinal stem cell differentiation. Understanding this process will help create specific early treatments for endocrine dysfunction and may also be a promising regenerative approach to diabetes therapy.
Scientists from Japan have demonstrated the effectiveness and safety of using stem cells in dilated cardiomyopathy in children. This approach will improve the quality of life and may even completely prevent the need for transplantation in young patients.
A new study found that intense immunosuppression followed by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation can prevent disease progression in 71% of people with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) within 10 years of treatment.
Scientists from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) managed to create a new type of human stem cells. Their effectiveness has been successfully tested in mice. While the results are encouraging, more research and testing are needed before the method can be applied to patients.
