Scientists reported the long-term success of an experimental operation in 2015 to transplant skin from genetically modified stem cells to a child with epidermolysis bullosa (EB). For the first time, a team of therapists from Germany and Italy could save a patient whose skin surface had been destroyed by 80%. However, doctors were unsure if the treatment would be successful in the long term and if the skin would remain stable.
Scientists have found that hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), involved in the immune response, use body fat stores to fight infection. The study could help develop new treatments for diseases in people with weakened immune systems.
In a new study, scientists at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) have maximized the production of extracellular vesicles by simply changing the way donor mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are cultured. This method opens up new possibilities for research in cell therapy using transplantation of stem cells or immune cells obtained from patients or donors.
Mesenchymal stem cell therapy has helped reduce mortality, the number of heart attacks, and strokes among patients suffering from chronic NYHA functional class II and III heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.
A study by scientists from Cornell University, US, showed that the antimicrobial properties of some proteins produced by mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could be used to develop potential treatments for infected wounds.
A new study by Kyoto University scientists has demonstrated the ability to produce some of the most potent anti-cancer immune cells for adoptive cell therapy (ACT) using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technology.
A new study of photoreceptor precursors derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) has demonstrated their safety and therapeutic potential as a source of replacement for damaged cells for future clinical trials.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have tremendous potential in regenerative medicine, the goal of which is to repair damaged tissues. However, until now, not much has been known about their in vivo plasticity.
Researchers at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, have found a subpopulation of MSCs that promote bone fracture regeneration and exhibit an increased ability to differentiate into various cell types.
Scientists at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have found a new source of stem cells close to the liver. The finding could help patients with Alagille syndrome, a rare, incurable genetic disorder in which normal bile ducts are absent, leading to severe liver damage and death.
A new phase I clinical trial shows that stem cells can improve patients’ health with lymphedema, a chronic disease affecting up to one in three women treated for breast cancer.
