Stem cells can use a unique method to protect against viruses

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.

A mouse embryo was created from stem cells in the laboratory

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).

Transplants of mesenchymal stem cells can help patients with diabetes

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.

Stem cell therapy can help cope with HIV

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.

Pulmonary fibrosis can be treated with mesenchymal stem cells

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.

Type 1 diabetes can be cured with a tiny implant device without inducing an immune response

A team of researchers led by endocrinologists and biomedical engineers from the University of Washington School of Medicine in St. Louis and Cornell University has successfully demonstrated the possibility of implanting β-cells in diabetic mice using a miniature device. After the transplant, the cells secrete insulin in response to blood sugar levels and do not require immunosuppressants.

The newest method of treating osteoarthritis using mesenchymal stem cell injection is presented

A study by scientists from Japan showed that intra-articular injections of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) stimulate the expression of several genes that stop the progression of osteoarthritis (OA).

New research has helped to find out how transplanted MSCs suppress inflammation even after they leave the body.

Scientists from the United States managed to find out how mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) continue to suppress inflammation for a long time even after being excreted from the body. The findings of researchers at Duke University in Durham, NC, could help develop therapies using MSCs for inflammatory diseases ranging from COVID-19 and cancer to allergies, arthritis, and more.
