Registered second case of cure for HIV with stem cells

The London citizen infected with HIV entered a long remission after a stem cell transplantation, which also helped him to beat the cancer. This is the second case in the world when a patient defeated HIV after a stem cell transplant.

Nicotine affects human embryos at the level of individual stem cells.

Scientists have found that nicotine at the cellular level induces a number of common pathologies in human embryonic development. Single-cell RNA sequencing of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) suggests that the three-week exposure to nicotine disrupts intercellular communications, reduces the survival of the cells and changes the expression of genes that regulate important functions, such as, for example, contraction of the cardiac muscle.

Pluripotent stem cells “invisible” for the immune system have been created

Scientists from the University of California San Francisco, UCSF, used the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing system to create the first pluripotent stem cells, functionally “invisible” to the immune system. This tremendous breakthrough in stem cell therapy can prevent graft rejection.

A protein controlling the differentiation of neural stem cells was found

German scientists have found that Akna protein regulates the regeneration of organs by stem cells. In addition, it controls the behavior of neural stem cells through a mechanism that can also be involved in the formation of metastases.

Insulin-producing cells grown for the first time.

Scientists from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) for the first time turned human stem cells into mature beta cells that produce insulin. This is the biggest breakthrough in research aimed at developing a treatment for type 1 diabetes (T1).

Functional B-lymphocytes from stem cells were obtained for the first time.

American researchers have created functional B1 cells from mouse embryonic stem cells capable of producing natural antibodies after transplantation to animals. This method can significantly help in the development of therapy for a wide range of immunological diseases.

Stem cell protein promotes bone healing

Scientists from the US in the experiments conducted on rats demonstrated that by regulating the signals of the cellular protein WISP-1, which is responsible for the formation of fat and bone from stem cells, it is possible to control the creation of bone tissue.

Stem cells may be the key to early treatment for autism spectrum disorder

Researchers at the Salk Institute compared the stem cells of patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with the healthy stem cells to reveal their differences and the rate of development of produced neurons for the first time. Read more
