For years, researchers and patients have hoped that embryonic stem cells - capable of forming nearly any cell type in the body - could provide insight into numerous diseases perhaps even be used to treat them.
A new stem-cell discovery might one day lead to a more streamlined process for obtaining stem cells, which in turn could be used in the development of replacement tissue for failing body parts, according to UC San Francisco scientists who reported the findings in the current edition of Cell.
July 28, 2014 - Ten UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers are among the most highly cited researchers in the U.S., earning them a place on Thomas Reuters' 2014 list of the World's Most Influential Scientific Minds.
Scientists at the New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute reportedly generated induced pluripotent stem cells lines from skin samples of patients with primary progressive multiple sclerosis and developed a protocol to induce the stem cells into becoming oligodendrocytes.
Researchers added a fluorescently labeled proteoglycan mimic to mouse embryonic stem cells .
As the primary source of diagnostic information, not only do many healthcare professionals rely on the results provided by clinical laboratories, but so do the patients being treated accordingly.
Authorities are warning of the risks of unproven stem cell treatments available in Australia and overseas after the death of an Australian woman in Russia.
Researchers in Germany and the U.S. have proven for the first time that specific individual cells of the immune system, termed central memory T cells, have all the essential characteristics of adult tissue stem cells .
Supporters of a Brisbane mother-of-two who died while undergoing a controversial stem cell treatment in Russia say it did not cause her death, nor have others been discouraged from seeking it.
An American woman suffering from paralysis volunteered for experimental surgery at Hospital de Egas Moniz in Lisbon, Portugal.
In a release, the organization noted the trial would evaluate the safety and efficacy of the VC-01 product candidate, a stem cell- derived, encapsulated cell replacement therapy.
The candidate should also bring a strong desire to prepare manuscripts, write fellowship grants and mentor technicians and students.
Gujarat's new compulsory reading list for government primary and secondary students doesn't just seek to educate students on "facts" about India's culture, history and geography.
The embryonic stem cell-specific cell cycle-regulating family of microRNAs enhances reprogramming of mouse embryonic fibroblasts to induced pluripotent stem cells.
