Mesenchymal Stem Cells Derived from Adipose Tissue to Help with Acute Radiation Syndrome

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.

To treat type-2 diabetic heart disease, only one injection is needed to activate the stem cells. 

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.

Activating neural stem cells in the brain will help preserve memory in old age

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

For the first time, a drug has been created that targets stem cells, improving their ability to heal.

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.

Identification of the main mechanisms of self-renewal and differentiation of intestinal stem cells promises new approaches to the treatment of diseases

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 have developed universal stem cells capable of repairing almost any injury

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.
