Xenobots created a year ago from stem cells have learned to reproduce

US scientists, who created the world’s first living robots, called xenobots, say that a new form of life can now reproduce itself in a way that has not previously been observed in plants or animals.

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.

For the first time successfully created a hybrid embryo consisting of human and monkey stem cells

Scientists from the United States have reported a breakthrough in the field of medicine – the creation of an embryo that is partly human and partly monkey. However, researchers talk about serious ethical issues that need to be addressed before the discovery can be used in practice.

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.

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.

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.

For the first time stem cells used to treat immune diseases in humans.

In Australia, for the first time in history a clinical trial using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) was conducted to treat 15 patients with an immune disorder known as graft versus host disease (GvHD).
