Stem Cells Heal Damaged Intestinal Tissue In Premature Babies
2013-03-25 08:16:18

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers studying stem cells removed from amniotic fluid have found a possible role the cells have on healing damage caused by necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a severe inflammation that can destroy tissues in the gut and lead to major organ failure. The findings, published in the journal Gut, are based on early animal tests that reveal healing and an increase in survival. The researchers say the evidence could lead to a new...

In a study to be presented on February 14 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. PST, at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting , in San Francisco, California, researchers will report findings suggesting an increased risk of early (less than 35 weeks) preterm birth when intra-amniotic debris is present in nulliparous women with a short cervix. The babies born to women with debris had worse outcomes than those born to women without debris, likely due to the earlier...

Stem Cells Extracted From Amniotic Fluid
2012-07-05 05:48:01

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Stem cell research is gaining headway, but is still controversial. Scientists hope that a new discovery regarding stem cells from amniotic fluid will pave the way to an alternative option. A collaborative group of researchers recently discovered that stem cells in amniotic fluid can be changed into a more flexible state, which could possibly open another option to embryonic stem cells. The study was recently published in the...

    Neonatal meconium can be used to examine gestational alcohol exposure during the second and third trimesters.     A new study has examined fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs) and ethylglucuronide (EtG) in meconium samples from public hospitals in seven Italian cities to test for prenatal exposure to alcohol.     Results indicate that fetal alcohol exposure is underestimated or misreported in Italy. In recent years, medical professionals have...

When are our adult food preferences formed? According to new research they are ingrained in us very early in the womb. New research by the Monell Chemical Senses Center finds that mothers can influence a baby's palate and food memories before it is born by introducing foods to her unborn child. In the womb, the baby is surrounded and nourished on the amniotic fluid, which is filled with the flavors of what the mom has eaten. "Things like vanilla, carrot, garlic, anise, mint -- these are some...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ A new genetic analysis could be used to monitor fetal development; allowing clinicians to determine very early in pregnancy if fetal organ systems are developing normally. Using special technology researchers have established the likelihood of focused fetal gene expression analysis of target genes found in amniotic fluid. Using Standardized NanoArray PCR (SNAP) technology, investigators determined that 7 of the 21 genes tested were expressed differently depending...

According to new study in the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics Researchers have demonstrated the feasibility of focused fetal gene expression analysis of target genes found in amniotic fluid using Standardized NanoArray PCR (SNAP) technology. This analysis could be used to monitor fetal development, enabling clinicians to determine very early in pregnancy whether fetal organ systems are developing normally. The study appears today in the September issue of The Journal of Molecular...

Labor Induction is a process of giving an artificial start to birth with medical intervention or other methods. When an induction is not performed for emergency or other medical reasons, the method is considered an elective process. The decision to induce labor has increased in recent years due to its convenience or because it easily accommodates busy schedules. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, however, say that labor should only be induced when it is more risky for...

MEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a study that was presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting in San Francisco, Biocell Center, the leader in amniotic fluid banking, together with a group of collaborators, confirmed that amniotic fluid collected during the third trimester of pregnancy is a reliable source of stem cells for regenerative medicine and stem cell banking. Amniotic fluid has emerged as one of the most attractive sources of mesenchymal...
