Using stem cells, researchers at the Salk Institute for the first time created clusters of pancreatic cells that produce human insulin and are able to avoid rejection by the immune system. After transplantation into mice, the clusters effectively controlled blood glucose levels throughout the life of the animals without the use of immunosuppressants.
The self-eating process in embryonic stem cells, known as chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA), and the metabolite produced in this process, may become promising new therapeutic targets to repair or regeneration of damaged cells and organs.
A new study has demonstrated the promise of a revolutionary approach in the treatment of trophic foot ulcers associated with diabetes. Scientists have shown for the first time that a bioengineered scaffold composed of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) combined with a drug commonly used to treat glaucoma improved healing and reduced wound inflammation in diabetic mice by as much as 75% compared to controls.
US researchers report successful implantation of neural stem cells directly into the area of spinal cord injury in mice. The grafts grew safely, filled the injury sites, and functioned like the existing animal neural network.
Researchers have found stem cells in optic nerve that carries signals from the eye to the brain. This discovery will help to better understand the development of the most common form of glaucoma and could be a potential treatment for one of the main causes of vision loss.
Researchers have found that “goosebumps” play an important role in the regulation of stem cells that regenerate hair follicles and hair.
Researchers for the first time in history created a 3D-printer three-dimensional model of the functioning human heart pump. The discovery could be an important step towards the study of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 600,000 people a year.
Scientists from Osaka conducted a series of studies that showed that the functioning and activity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is directly dependent on the influence of factors produced by their environment.
A research team from Spain has developed technology to increase the efficiency of differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into various types of cells.
Chinese researchers have proposed a new approach to the development of a vaccine against coronavirus infection (COVID-19), based on human mesenchymal stem cells, with a positive and promising antibody response.
