Only 8 genes are needed to convert a stem cell into an oocyte

In a new study, scientists from Japan have demonstrated that activating just eight genes is enough to produce gene-control proteins that convert mouse stem cells directly into oocyte-like cells capable of maturation and even fertilization.

Improved TSCM Stem Cells May Beat Cancer

American researchers from the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center have been able to reprogram T lymphocytes into memory T stem cells (TSCM) – long-lived “super immune cells” with high anti-tumor activity.

The effects of COVID-19 can be treated with mesenchymal stem cells

Scientists from the University of Granada and ‘Virgen de las Nieves’ University Hospital in Granada have discovered that a combination of multipotent mesenchymal/stromal stem cells (MSCs) and radiation-activated MSCs can successfully treat septic shock and pneumonia, a complication of COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

Patients’ own stem cells can be used to grow new bones.

A revolutionary new study by scientists at the University of Bergen (UiB) has demonstrated the ability to create new bones from patients’ own mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). This discovery in the future could help millions of people with partial edentulous and insufficient bone tissue for dental implants.

Scientists have obtained millions of T lymphocytes from just one stem cell

Researchers in the United States have developed a way to create thymic organoids in the laboratory from stem cells. This approach will allow to obtain one of the main components of the immune system – T cells, which are formed from blood stem cells in the thymus gland.

Stem cells can help correct jaw bone defects

Scientists have succeeded for the first time in growing a jaw along with joints from pig stem cells. The researchers plan to soon use the resulting bone as a graft in clinical trials on patients with severe birth defects.

Stem cell organoids to reveal new treatments for COVID-19

Mini lungs grown from stem cells have helped to better understand the mechanism of lung damage in COVID-19. The researchers were able to detail the mechanisms behind SARS-CoV-2 infection and early innate immune response in the lungs.

Scientists have discovered a mechanism that can help avoid hair loss

An international research group has discovered a mechanism that can prevent baldness. Hair follicle stem cells, which are responsible for hair growth, by changing their metabolism can prolong hair life. In experiments on mice, the research team demonstrated that a protein called Rictor plays a key role in this process.

Physical squeeze can cause stem cells to grow and divide faster

A new study by scientists from the United States has shown that physically squeezing cells, can significantly accelerate their growth and division. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Boston Children’s Hospital have found that physical crowding at the cellular level increases the likelihood of interactions that can significantly alter cell health and development.
