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...

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) can occur due to sneezing, coughing, exercising or even laughing and happens because the pelvic floor muscles are too weak causing leakage when the bladder is put under pressure. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal BMC Medicine shows that a new technique, using stem cells isolated from amniotic fluid, can regenerate damaged urethral sphincter muscles and prevent pressure incontinence in mice. Although SUI is more common during...

Stem Cells Extracted From Amniotic Fluid

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...

BOSTON, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Most women know that amniotic fluid is the nourishing and protective liquid that surrounds a growing baby, but are unaware of the potential of amniotic fluid beyond pregnancy. Amniotic fluid contains mesenchymal stem cells, which are at the forefront of medical research, and, if collected and stored, these stem cells may help protect the child throughout their lifetime. Biocell Center, leader in amniotic fluid preservation, is proud to participate in...

Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
