A team of researchers in Japan have discovered that VD3, a super-active form of Vitamin D, boosts stem cells to enhance and maintain their ability to induce hair growth. This new study, reported in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, builds upon previous studies that have demonstrated how dermal papilla cells (DPCs) can stimulate epithelial stem cells to become hair. Durham, NC (PRWEB) July 27, 2012 A team of researchers in Japan has discovered that VD3, a super-active form of Vitamin D,...

In a study published in the June issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine, researchers were able to demonstrate the potential of a population of stem cells found in human fat to generate bone. They also identified a new factor to stimulate bone growth. Bone grafts grown from purified stem cells originating from fat could lead to a more efficient way to regenerate bone and end the painful operations needed to collect a patient´s own bone for grafting. The results could have significant...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- There's a new "first" in the world of tissue engineering. Researchers have used patients' own cells to build tailor-made urinary tubes and successfully replace damaged tissue. The research team, from the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, reported replacing damaged segments of urethras in five boys aged 10 to 14. Tests that measured urine flow and tube diameter revealed the engineered tissue remained functional...
