Mesenchymal stem cells protect and heal A stem cell that can morph into a number of different tissues is proving a natural protector, healer and antibiotic maker, researchers at Case Western Reserve University and their peers have found. Mesenchymal stem cells reaped from bone marrow had been hailed as the key to growing new organs to replace those damaged or destroyed by violence or disease, but have failed to live up to the billing. Instead, scientists who'd been trying to manipulate the...

Identifying a suitable donor for leukemia and lymphoma patients who need bone marrow transplants may be far easier now that results of two clinical trials show transplant results with half-matched bone marrow or umbilical cord blood are comparable to fully matched tissue, thanks in large part to the availability of effective antirejection drugs and special post-transplant chemotherapy. The finding means that nearly all patients in need of a transplant can find donors, according to Johns...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- New-fangled research examines the therapeutic use of human stem cells from bone marrow against acute lung injury and identifies TNF-a-induced protein 6 as a foremost molecular component of stem cell action. Acute lung injury is a chief complication of critically ill patients resulting in pulmonary edema, hypoxia and, in the worst cases, organ failure.  Accordingly, up to 40 percent of all sufferers die for the reason that their bodies' immune systems overreact in an...
