Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) and the stem cell institute HI-STEM in Heidelberg for the first time successfully reprogrammed human blood cells into a previously unknown type of neural stem cells.
Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have enormous potential – they can become cells of any type of body tissue. However, as soon as they begin to specialize in order to give rise to certain types of tissue, they lose their unlimited possibilities.
The active protein component of royal jelly helps the bees to grow new queens. Scientists from Stanford discovered a similar protein in mammals that is able to preserve the pluripotency of embryonic stem cell culture.
Japanese researchers have developed a method for growing human platelets from stem cells in the laboratory. Scientists hope that the created platelets may eventually reduce the dependence on the donor material of cancer patients and patients with other diseases.
Researchers have developed a technique for growing human heart tissue, which can serve as an atrial model for clinical studies of arrhythmias.
Canadian researchers from the University of Toronto, using own stem cells of patients, have created a technique that allows 30% faster to restore the skin after burns.
Scientists have discovered in the growth plate of bone a new type of stem cells, which forming bones, cartilage and tissue of the spongy or cancellous portions of bones, containing bone marrow. Prepared reserves of these cells can one day help doctors restore or replace cartilage in the joints, heal fractures faster, build up bone tissue in osteoporosis, and even grow new bones and cartilage for plastic surgery.
American biologists from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis are growing a retinal organoid from stem cells to better understand the interaction between the eye and the brain. Research can help to create cell replacement therapy that restores vision.
A new study by American scientists from the University of Illinois shows that stem cell proliferation is directly controlled by the autonomic nervous system.
Scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences successfully raised 29 healthy fertile mice, born from a pair of females without the participation of males.
