Cambridge scientists used embryonic stem cells to grow beating cardiomyocytes. Using this model, the researchers demonstrated how the heart is vulnerable to infection with SARS-CoV-2. This system successfully tested a new experimental peptide drug, DX600, preventing COVID-19 from entering heart cells.
Researchers at the Australian National University (ANU), in collaboration with colleagues at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, have developed a revolutionary new treatment for Parkinson’s disease based on stem cells embedded in a hydrogel. The new method can also be used to treat patients suffering from other neurological conditions, such as strokes.
Research on the compassionate use of perivascular umbilical cord tissue (Wharton’s jelly) mesenchymal stem cells (WJ-MSCs) has shown promising results in treating muscular dystrophies. Under the guidance of physicians at the Centrum Medyczne Klara, KMC, Czestochowa, Poland, this procedure significantly improved certain muscle groups in most patients without any severe side effects.
An international team of scientists has discovered a unique mechanism for repairing spinal cord injuries using stem cells in axolotls. Its study can help in the creation of methods for treating patients with similar injuries.
Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have discovered an essential mechanism that helps protect mammalian stem cells from RNA viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, which causes coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the Zika virus. Previously, it was believed that this function was lost in the course of evolutionary development. Scientists believe that the discovery will be helpful in the development of new antiviral drugs.
For the first time in history, scientists have managed to grow an embryo with a heartbeat, muscles, blood vessels, intestines, and nervous system development. This unique mammalian model, created from mouse embryonic stem cells, is the most complex organism ever created in vitro (in the dish).
According to a new study, patients with type 2 diabetes who are not overweight and have had the disease for less than ten years may benefit from therapy based on transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells derived from their own bone marrow.
In a groundbreaking new study, a group of scientists from the University of California, Davis, found that a specific type of stem cell can reduce the virus that causes AIDS, increase the body’s antiviral immunity, and repairing lymphoid follicles in the intestines damaged by the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), the equivalent of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in non-human primates.
Researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) have shown that even after lung damage, fibrosis can be reversed and tissue repair promoted by treatment with microgel-coated mesenchymal stem cells.
According to a new study, umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) injection more than doubles survival in severe COVID-19 patients compared to controls.
