A new study appearing in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine (SCTM) demonstrates the potential of a subset of stem cell called CD34+ in treating hard to heal bone fractures. Durham, NC (PRWEB) December 04, 2013 A new study appearing in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine (SCTM) demonstrates the potential of a subset of stem cell called CD34+ in treating hard to heal bone fractures. While most patients recover from broken bones with little or no complication, up to 10 percent experience...

Researchers at Whitehead Institute have identified a protein that is the target of glucocorticoids, the drugs that are used to increase red blood cell production in patients with certain types of anemia, including those resulting from trauma, sepsis, malaria, kidney dialysis, and chemotherapy. The discovery could spur development of drugs capable of increasing this protein's production without causing the severe side effects associated with glucocorticoids. "This research is medically...

How a certain type of stem cell mobilizes in the circulation system of older people to repair damage from a heart attack or even to fight the aging process itself could hold the key to treating cardiac and other age-related diseases, according to a new study by researchers at Showa University in Japan. In an article published in the June issue of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine the researchers detail how, for the first time, they were able to home in on a protein called CD271 found on...

Researchers have rejuvenated aged hematopoietic stem cells to be functionally younger, offering intriguing clues into how medicine might one day fend off some of the ailments of old age. Scientists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the Ulm University Medicine in Germany report their findings online May 3 in the journal Cell Stem Cell. The paper brings new perspective to what has been a life science controversy — countering what used to be broad consensus that the...

Image Credit: © South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology Research of wounds on a 5,300-year-old body found frozen in the Italian Alps in 1991 has produced the oldest red blood cells ever identified, and suggests the well preserved “Iceman” did not immediately die from his injuries, nor did he live for a few days, scientists report in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. The bloody discovery is a first for the “Iceman,” called Oetzi, which has been...

A study of the cells that respond to crises in the blood system has yielded a few surprises, redrawing the ℠map´ of how blood cells are made in the body. The finding, by researchers from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, could have wide-ranging implications for understanding blood diseases such as myeloproliferative disorders (that cause excess production of blood cells) as well as used to develop new ways of controlling how blood and clotting cells are produced. The...

Penn Study Unlocks Origins of Blood Stem Cells
2011-12-11 06:00:06

A research team led by Nancy Speck, PhD, professor of Cell and Developmental Biology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, has discovered a molecular marker for the immediate precursors of hematopoietic (blood) stem cells (HSCs) in the developing embryo, which provides much-needed insights for making these cells from engineered precursors. Because HSCs, found in the bone marrow of adult mammals, generate all of the blood cell types of the body, unlocking the...

Human stem cells aren't immune to the aging process, according to scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The researchers studied hematopoietic stem cells, which create the cells that comprise the blood and immune system. Understanding when and how these stem cells begin to falter as the years pass may explain why some diseases, such as acute myeloid leukemia, increase in prevalence with age, and also why elderly people tend to be more vulnerable to infections such as colds...
